Retailing the Panerai Straps

Vintage Military design: The last couple of years had be stagnant, there just wasn’t any significant change in style in the outlook of a strap ! From our observation, Vintage and military are two most popular descriptions for a Panerai strap ! Repeat business seems unlikely when your first strap has a No.74 on it, and the “new design” strap has the 73 but with everything identical ! We suspect the term “vintage” is outdated.

Panerai Vs. Ennebi, the Bronzo

When carrying the watch, the Panerai feels solid, while the Enebi is a bit shaky and loose in the bezel. The Italian flag behind the Enebi adds the military touch which we like a lot, we prefer this over the naked back of the Pam382.

MEET THE CREATOR 他是誰?

由以前到現在 James 都不是一個做”生意”的人,以前聽他說每條錶帶的”出處”,如何在選料上和結構上一定要盡量把歷史複製的極度偏執,我們都說他是一個瘋子(其實這也解釋了為何我們錶帶上的號碼是不接受隨意改寫的)。 他對軍事和手錶的知識都變成物件,只是這次他復出後比以前的範圍還要廣,每件事做得比以前更加深入。 到 Panerai 專門店時,你有被他們用作裝飾那只潛水艇吸引嗎?「對不起這個是不賣的啊….」已經不記得被太子大廈的 Ricky 反覆婉距了多少次。一直到去年推出的 785 set 才終於有機會擁有這只魚雷。我們都知道 Panerai 的經典都離不開潛水艇-SLC (意大利文 Siluro a Lenta Corsa 的簡稱,中譯-慢速魚雷 ) ,他,Teseo Tesei,這位鬍子先生就是 SLC 的發明人。 Teseo Tesei 除了是軍官和海軍工程師外,他更對今天 Panerai 的飾品有很直接的影響。
