The PAM 111 is among the most widely used models within the Panerai selection and it has been because it was first produced, in 2002 for that “E” series. It's the “cousin” from the Luminor Base, using the difference to be the second hand and Chronometer certification. The 111 is really a manual, hand-wound watch with second functionality at 9 o’clock. The watch goes in Panerai’s Historic Luminor Marina selection, because it is heavily according to among the first Luminors produced, the PAM 1.
It’s just this type of classic piece that appears great on anyone’s wrist. Our prime-polished steel case and handsome matte black dial look great in most angles. This Panerai handles to create a statement and keep its classic appeal simultaneously- that is rare currently of short-term design.
The case measures at 44mm wide and mm thick, but really feels bigger because of the general heft and stretching crown guard- a Panerai trademark. The case is unquestionably original- a Panerai design element which makes the watch as instantly identifiable just like any. The watch is very versatile, particularly when fitted with a number of straps. I occur to think it is going well using the hourra suede, black crocodile/alligator, brownish or wine red crocodile/alligator, or black rubber OEM strap that is included with the watch when new.
Though less well-liked by Paneristi as other models, the 111 is actually a great summary of the Panerai line, offering classic looks and functionality. The PAM 111’s flexibility is most likely second to none within the Panerai line-up. Its 44mm dimensions are perfect, using the matte black dial in a position to match any outfit, and also the strap-altering ability permitting it to complement different occasions too. For example, if taking a go swimming within the pool, the black rubber OEM strap or Kevlar and Velcro strap is a great fit. Or maybe wearing it to some casual dinner with buddies, a leather strap would have the desired effect.
So far as the movement is worried- this watch is equipped using the Panerai OP XI movement, having a well-finished Geneva Wave design. It's a Licensed Chronometer, meaning it keeps time within -4 and 6 seconds per 24 hour period. The power reserve is all about 42 hours when fully wound and also the winding is really fun, though most quartz or automatic watch proprietors could find their watch preventing because of insufficient power reserve, as they may be accustomed to not needing to be worried about winding the watch.
The strap altering isn't very difficult, really. A blued screwdriver includes the watch to unscrew straps in the extended lugs. You need to be careful though, because the mirror finish around the case draws in scratches easily. The entire strap-altering process must take in regards to a minute once you’ve tried it carefully a number of occasions.
