It was an interesting question posed once in a forum about the lack of minute markers in Panerai watches. Since I am nursing a bad back and will not be going anywhere soon, I decided to check out just how many Panerai watches or models did Panerai make that had minute markers.
So out with the books....
Special Edition catalogue.
Interestingly I found 104 models have minute markers. So if we consider that Panerai have made 532 models (counting to PAM00532), that is about 20% of the watches that Panerai makes have minute markers. And we know that Panerai do not use all the numbers, so the percentage will only go up. Cool....
Some of the current models with minute markers....
Of course if you look at older models, you can find pieces like the ones below.
As for me, I only have the PAM00003 that have the minute markers. :)
