If you are a Panerai lover, you may recognize this watch. This is because this is the third iteration of the Mare Nostrum dating back to the early Panerai. Mare Nostrum is the first chronograph created by Panerai Mare Nostrum Replica in 1943 for the Italian Navy. This design was later revived in 1993, as the first re-edit, reference 5218-301 / A, which was produced in 1997. You see the watch here almost exactly like the 1993 reprint, although there are some minor updates.
Starting with the 42 mm AISI 316L stainless steel case, this watch, like the 1993 version, features a round Panerai Replica Watches chronograph pushbutton and a speedometer dial calibrated to 60 km / h. The first measurement of the Mare Nostrum is 52mm, so there is a big difference here, which makes the watch virtually wearable. The dial is also attractive with two different accents: bright white for signature and two registers, beige SuperLuminova for indexing, Arabic numerals and hand.
Panerai Replica chose to use the same movement as the Vendome version, caliber OP XXXIII, based on the ETA 2801-2 and the Dubois-Dépraz chronograph module. This is a COSC certification and has a 42-hour power reserve.
Panerai has been sticking to the Luxury Panerai Watches files, this is really cool. This is an attractive work that may well have been well received by both new and old Panerai collectors. The latest work is composed of more than 1,000 pieces and is a wooden box shaped like the Italian naval destroyer Luigi Durand De La Penne in the era of the Mare Nostrum.
