At the end of the nineties, the PANERAI Luminor Base Logo Acciaio large-format, functional diving watch evolved to become a surprise success, thanks to Sylvester Stallone. This is the basic model of the PANERAI series, bearing the reference PAM 000.
Since the success of the film ‘Daylight’, featuring Sylvester Stallone, these exclusive diving watches from Florence, Italy have acquired a worldwide reputation. In clips from the 1996 film, a PANERAI PAM 000 can be clearly seen on the actor’s wrist. Following this Hollywood exposure, the prestigious chronograph quickly became a style icon.
PANERAI’s PAM 000 is part of their historic series. This minimalist, high-precision model has convincing straight lines and a clean look. The PANERAI Luminor Base Logo Acciaio PAM 000 features the exclusive PANERAI OP I calibre movement, and also – below the lettering on the black dial – the acclaimed PANERAI logo designed by Dino Zei, Panerai’s owner prior to the Vendome Group (Cartier) takeover. A closed caseback made of hypoallergenic AISI 316L stainless steel makes the watch comfortable to wear next to the skin.
As they are Super-LumiNova® coated, the hands, Arabic numerals and hour markers are easy to read against the black dial, even in the dark. Both the case and bezel are highly polished steel, whilst the caseback and crown-protection bridge have a brushed steel finish. The black strap – standard dimensions 115/75mm – comes in a smooth calf leather, finished with black stitching, and has an authentic steel pin-buckle. An interchangeable rubber strap is also supplied for use when diving, to protect the leather. In true PANERAI tradition, the Luminor Base Logo Acciaio is guaranteed water-resistant to a depth of 300 meters.
The PANERAI PAM 000 is priced to appeal. Consequently, this watch is always in great demand, which means, at times, there may be limited availability. When you purchase a PANERAI Luminor Base Logo Acciaio, which is both fashionable and a joy to wear, you will acquire a distinctive timepiece of the highest quality, with its own historic legacy.
