New Panerai Special Editions Watches

Panerai Special Editions Watch: Own a Piece of History 

The Panerai Special Editions collection largely comprises vintage watches. Taking inspiration from classic models, this collection takes these elements apart and reinvents them into an entirely new set of watches. Arguably, the upgrade is most noticeable in the engine that powers the watch to enhance its accuracy and technicality.

Watches in the Special Editions collection take inspiration from a range of older models from Panerai, such as watches from the Panerai Radiomir, Panerai Luminor, and Panerai Submersible collections. Special Edition watches are only released in small batches each year, making them rare and especially valuable.

How much does a watch from the Panerai Special Editions collection cost?

As this collection is a combination of models from different collections, the price range can go from $7000 USD up to $150,000 USD. Below are some of the most popular Panerai Special Editions watches and their projected prices:

The latest model from the Special Editions Collection, the Panerai Special Editions Radiomir Venti Ref. PAM02020, has a limited quantity of 1,020 pieces and retails at a price of $7,932 USD. It was created to mark the 20th anniversary of the Paneristi.com community, Panerai’s global dedicated fan group. We get to see the designs both in the dial and case to imitate the effect of the patina. It features a steel case, a brown matte dial, a brown leather strap, and sword-shaped gold hands that are reminiscent of the first Radiomir model.

Perhaps the most popular model from 2018 is the Panerai Special Editions Luminor 1950 Sealand # Days Automatic Acciaio Ref. PAM00858. With a limited quantity of 88 units, this watch can only be purchased from Panerai boutiques at a price of $25,626 USD. This model has a special polished steel case cover that is decorated with a hand-engraved dog with gold filling encircling its dial. On its face are luminous dots, black index, and Arabic numeral markers. Inside is the Caliber P.9000, with the hours, minutes, small seconds clock, and date functions.

The Panerai 2017 Special Editions Mare Nostrum Acciaio Ref. PAM00716 is a revival of the 1993 Mare Nostrum. Coming with the same round chronograph pushers and tachymeter bezel, this watch is significantly smaller than the original (52mm) at 42mm, making it more wearable. This watch retails at $8,995 USD.

Two more models from 2017 feature polished steel cases on a brown special leather strap. One is Panerai 2017 Special Editions Radiomir 3 Days Acciaio Ref. PAM00720 in Scamosciato brown strap ($7849 USD) and the other is Special Editions Ref. PAM00721 in Calf Ponte Vecchio brown strap ($7389 USD). Both watches are 47mm in diameter and come with a black dial with luminous hour markers and a see-through case back. These two watches run on the hand-wound mechanical movement Caliber P.3000, which is equipped with an anti-shock device and a power reserve of 3 days.

The Panerai 2016 Special Editions Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days GMT Automatic Titanio Ref. PAM00719 is a modernized take on the Luminor, the brand’s first civilian collection released in 1993. With a limited quantity of just 300, this robust tool watch is also called the ‘Pole2Pole’ as it was used by Mike Horn, a South-African Swiss explorer who circumnavigated the world from pole to pole. This watch comprises a brushed titanium case and features the trademark Panerai crown guard. It also comes with a GMT function and a second reset device.

Another model worth mentioning is the Panerai 2014 Special Editions 3 Days GMT Oro Rosso Ref. PAM00598, a limited 200-unit elegant cushion-shaped red gold case watch with a deep blue dial. The index markers exude a warm glow with their luminescent coating. The case back is a sure beauty as it reveals the sophisticated hand-wound mechanical P.3001/10 caliber.

The 2010 Lo Scienziato Radiomir Tourbillon GMT Ceramica Ref. PAM00350 has a limited quantity of just 30 and has a hefty asking price of $145,151 USD. The case is made of zirconium oxide ceramic, the case back of titanium. What made the price point reach this high is of course because of its technical complexity of the most refined structure clearly visible in the dial. A fine mesh separates the subsidiary dial and the movement inside the watch. 

It is very rare to see watches that are designed specifically for the left-handed such as the Panerai Luminor Marina Left-Handed Ref. PAM00026, limited to 1000 pieces and retailing at $13,852 USD. The crown is positioned on the left, while the seconds sub-dial is positioned at 3 o’clock rather than at the usual 9 o’clock. As it is almost similar to Ref. PAM00026B ($20,000 USD), it’s not surprising how this watch quickly sold out.

Finally, you have the 35-piece Panerai 2002 Special Editions Radiomir Chrono Split-Seconds Ref. PAM00147. This fine watch is composed of a rose gold case on black shiny leather. The case back reveals the Caliber 185 equipped with a split-seconds chronograph with three counters. This watch is priced at $6,003 USD.

Vintage Panerai Special Editions Watch — Is it a good investment?

Panerai is a recognized brand on the international market, making its resale value almost guaranteed. The Special Editions collection is designed for the most dedicated of watch collectors, who look out for not just quality in watches, but also their historical value.

As a collection of true luxury timepieces, the Panerai Special Editions timepieces are very expensive, with asking prices that are almost quadruple their original counterparts. 

History Behind the Panerai Special Editions Collection

The Panerai Special Editions Collection dates as far back as 1997, starting with the reiteration of the 1916 platinum Radiomir watch. From then on, Panerai exclusively sold these Special Edition models in limited quantities exclusively in Panerai boutiques. 

Over the years, more reiterations of Panerai’s famous collections are added to the Special Editions collection, beginning with the Panerai Radiomir and Panerai Radiomir 1940. The Panerai Luminor followed in 1949, and this was quickly backed up by the Panerai Luminor 1950 models. 

Panerai then released dive watches into the collection, starting from the Panerai Luminor Due in 2018, and Panerai Submersible in 2019.  

Reasons to Buy Panerai Special Editions Watch

If you are into dive watches with a big and bold size, clean dial face, and luminous material, Panerai watches are something worth looking into. The brand is known for being consistent in these design concepts. 

Though priced above the average luxury watches, Panerai’s watches are made of the topmost quality from both the inside and the outside. They are definitely a great investment to consider if you’re looking for something that gains value over time. Getting a Panerai yourself also means that you have a ticket to enter the community of Paneristi, the global fanbase that celebrates Panerai watches. 

Panerai Special Editions: The Brand’s Most Exclusive Collection

Panerai knew exactly how to cater to the market by putting together an exclusive collection that reimagines its classic pieces in limited quantities. For this very reason, the collection tends to sell out quickly as compared to other watches produced by Panerai.
