    The Official Panerai 6152/1 Reissue

    This is what started the PAM craze, the Vintage Panerai 6152/1 which traces it's roots to 1960s when they finally nailed the signature crescent crown-guard.

    & then, there's the exacting PAM673, limited to 1000 pieces with further careful restoration of the minute needle hands... which brings us closest to the Official PAM 6152/1 Reissue, with improved 3-days power reserve In-House P3000 Movement.

    like all things, brands improve over time, we can't expect Panerai to stay stagnant.

    Compared to the PAM127 on ETA which draws inspiration from 6152/1, Panerai improved it and made it accessible by releasing the 1000 pieces PAM673 on the in-house movement.

    Of course, if you missed the boat, there's the PAM372 which holds most of the 6152/1 DNA. Just that the PAM673 holds alot of excitement for me, as it bears the Marina Militare dial which is rarer and it's minute needle hands brings this reissue the closest to the 6152/1 on Panerai's in-house movement.

    It's as good as it gets.

    Looks good, but i like to see that a watch is running. I'm missing a running seconds. So this one's not for me!

    yes, I used to think the same way for a datejust watch...
    and then, realised that I could do without the date.

    you could see the movement running at the displayback.
    the key thing is... this is a grail being a 1000 pieces official 6152/1 re-issue.

    Re: The Official Panerai 6152/1 Reissue

    When I saw a 673 last year at the local boutique, I couldn't leave it in the shop. I had done a bit of research previously, so I knew it was a historically correct reissue. What did it for me mostly, is the beautifully styled and historically correct hands and the "MARINA MILITARE" text on the dial. I felt that two years after the model was introduced, I was lucky to find one. Not being one to buy unseen online, I jumped at the chance. Of course, this Special Edition model does come at a premium over the 372, which here in Canada was $1500 more. On the other hand, going to over 11 grand anyway, the choice of getting the 673 was a simple one for me. So, with full MSRP plus tax, I paid $14,448CAD. While I rarely discuss prices on these forums, I just wanted to demonstrate how special I feel this watch is.

    Admittedly, since I got the 673, I have thought at times of selling it. The Radiomir 47mm just fits my wrist a lot better. But the 673 is the watch over the past decade that I have worn for the longest time at a stretch. Last Fall, I was away for two weeks and it is the only watch I brought with me. And, as large as it is, I did develop a special bond with it. The beautiful Ponte Vecchio strap just softened up beautifully and, despite the size of the watch, it became one of my most comfortable.



    Every time I think of parting with it, I put it on my wrist and wear it for a day. And often I will ask a friend to put it on his wrist. I find that once I see one of my watches on someone else's wrist, thoughts of parting with it disappear. At least for the time being.

    Cheers,
    Carl

    it's a beauty, but i wonder how many potential owners would pass because of no seconds hand?

    i'm not sure how i like those hands either. still an interesting piece regardless. If a watch's movement is robust enough and i trust that it is running when i think it's running, i kind of like the badass nature of no seconds hand... but i'm still not sure if i'd buy one. i like to see things move.

    well, considering that this is the Vintage Panerai Reissue of the 6152/1, I feel... the PAM673 nails it for exacting purist enthusiasts.

    the sub-seconds was the final version of the 6152/1 no doubt, but this version without the sub-seconds was what was promoted for the most part of PAM's history.

    and in this version, the PAM's Signature is born, the crescent crown-guard... never mind the upgrade from the wire-lugs to the solid-block lugs.

    Having had the sub-seconds dial, I realised... it doesn't make a meaningful difference in time-keeping.

    I like the 6152/1 because it's a dateless which brings out a weekend feel from wearing the watch.

    any similar thoughts?

    I appreciate the history of the watch but like i already said i like to see a running seconds. So i went and purchased a Radiomir Black Seal 8 days yesterday which by the way has it's own interesting history!

    The 673 is a thing of beauty!!

    And I would have one if I didn’t already have a 372.

    I think PAM673 is severely underpriced for what it is, right now.

    To think that the fantasy dial of PAM127 is more expensive than an actual historic accurate dial like PAM673 that is more limited than PAM127, it's unforgivable.

    Seriously, I think PAM673 is the most underpriced PAM right now, that holds an important and direct link to 6152/1... than PAM372.

    It's a different animal altogether.

    For someone who wants only the finest.

    Let's face it, getting a PAM267 is impossible.

    Getting a 6152/1 is hmm, adventurous, as it can be frankened.

    PAM673 is as good as it can get, with PAM's in-house movement and utmost attempt to be accurate to the 6152/1, something they purposely did not do for the 372.

    no?
