This is a daily worn and much loved example of a Panerai “Paneristi” Collector Edition watch. It feature the iconic 44mm Luminor case, with a black PVD finish. Over time, just like this example, PVD will uniquely wear for each owner leading to each watch looking very different (depending on how much wear the piece has seen). The luxury watch collector who had this piece obviously loved it and the PVD has worn into a distressed look (not unlike the patina so many new watches try to create). It is a (Time CAPSULE)! This watch comes with everything: its original oversized presentation box set, special edition parchment, booklets, warranty card and the owner’s name is printed on the outer box label and the parchment!
Paneristi is the name of the dedicated Panerai forum online, and was one of the first online communities to be noticed by the brand they so admired. Obtaining a PAM 195 was no easy feat, as it involved applying for the piece and being selected by the moderators of the forum AND the Panerai brand itself! Each one of the 200 lucky collector would then be presented with a personalized PAM 195, with their name engraved on the case back and becoming part of the provenance of the watch itself. The PAM 195 also marked the first use of the vintage, pre-Vendome era "Arrows" logo on the dial. This was later released as a production edition in the PAM 0005 (non-PVD). Due to their creation specifically for, and ownership by, some of the most dedicated Panerai collectors in the world, PAM 195 pieces rarely come up for sale.
