The 4th watch within the new Panerai Manifattura P.9000 line which I captured pics of may be the PAM321. The entire title based on the panerai.com web site is Luminor 1950 three days GMT Energy Reserve Automatic 44mm. Pew… but, it will conclude. A 44mm 50’s situation, a computerized movement having 72 hours energy reserve along with a GMT function. Really what misses in the official title may be the word Marina. Since it comes with a sub seconds dial in the nice o’clock position.
Anyway, the 321 is run by the brand new in-house P.9002 movement. This calibre is comparable to the P.9000 and P.9001 however it supports an energy reserve indicator around the dial. Similar to the one you’ll find on for example the PAM90 (which incidentally was the very first Panerai watch I possessed). Aside from all of the apparent functions, the PR indicator around the dial is one of the only factors the two watches share. The 321 is completely inside a different league altogether (you are able to click on the photos for any bigger view).
The PAM321 – such as the PAM320 – includes a 12 hour GMT function but lacks an AM/PM indicator around the dial. The 2nd time zone hands are black. I am speculating the Panerai designers determined that a silver time zone hands could be too busy in conjunction with the energy reserve indicator around the dial. Within my personal opinion a black second time zone hands is much better searching than the usual silver one. No matter what else is incorporated around the dial.
Such as the PAM312 and PAM320, the PAM312 includes a Luminova sandwich dial (above photo) that causes it to be very readable time even just in low light conditions. The luminova illuminates very vibrant and stays billed for any very long time. The very is 2.6mm thick and does not possess a date zoom window or Cyclops. Despite its very display back, the timepiece comes with a 300m depth rating quite amazing. The sooner Manifattura watches – e.g. the 233 and 270 – in addition have a very display back however a depth rating of 100 meters. Many people believe that a wrist watch having a display back is instantly “degraded” to as being a “fashion watch” instead of as being a “tool watch” or perhaps a real diver’s watch. I have never decided to that perspective if this involves Panerai watches. The functions on offer and also the specifications are what really matters if this involves that. The truth that the brand new P.9000 series again possess a depth rating of 300 meters proves my point.
The 321 posseses an extremely well-crafted black crocodile strap along with a blown steel buckle which has the term Panerai engraved. The photo below shows the PAM312 and PAM321 alongside one another. As you can tell the term Panerai is this is not on the dial from the 321 due to the positioning of the energy reserve indicator. Besides this – and aside from the truth that the 321 includes a GMT function – the style of the 2 watches is almost identical.
Thinking about the condition of my own collection, I love the 321 most out of the 312, 320 and 321. Otherwise I’d possess a really difficult time determining between your 320 and also the 321.
