Pam 127 - Luminor 1950 Fiddy

 

01_224.jpg

 

The hoary legends are full of magic and unwanted objects, which ....... character presumably attributed to people who elect them, find them and carry.

I wonder ... if you like that for centuries, knights, poets and mystics have sought these essences, our choice of having a "Fiddy" is not linked to the loss of original innocence or create a communion with the origins of the myth.

001_00.jpg

 

Panerai, as prestigious watch brand is different from the others since its inception. One need only look at the vast majority of big brands have their origin in Switzerland, against the Italian origin of this.

 

01_239.jpg

 

The relationship of the brand with the Royal Italian Navy is no secret to us. But such is the symbiosis that around 1890, Panerai became the official supplier of the military division, generating large advances in materials autoluminosos in the first decade of the twentieth century

They get a bright compound with zinc sulphate and radium bromide, which call Radiomir, which later gave its name to a series of models, design with a somewhat peculiar case

 

01_032.jpg

As peculiar as the true origin of Panerai watches, which owes its existence to the demands of special corps command X ª MAS assault, for time and its measurement were essential factors in their missions. But we must point out that the assault team was mostly underwater, so the need to carry fully sealed watches became an obligation.

 

01_227.jpg

 

01_226.jpg

 

That is why, after several attempts with other prestige brands, the Royal Italian Navy directs the manufacture of watches Panerai tight, tough, accurate and with good visibility underwater.

 

01_070.jpg

 

The first prototype manufactured by Panerai watch dates from 1938, which sat on a machine based on a Rolex Cortébert Ebauche on a box of 47mm Radiomir and adding material to the indexes on the dial. The first model far exceeds all the evidence and claims the manufacture of a first series of 10 units, under the reference 3646.

Over the next few years, improvements made ​​by applying different series as the Angelus caliber 240 with power reserve of 8 days, or the protective characteristic arched crown.

 

01_076.jpg

 

But there is a clear point of inflection between two essential stages in the history of the brand, and this is the year 1993, from which the brand becomes part of the Vendôme group, and that's when really going to civilian market

 

01_237.jpg

 

This brings up the reissue of several models until now considered a military secret, as is the case of the Luminor, Luminor Marina or Mare Nostrum.

 

01_098.jpg

 

It is in 1997 when the brand expands and clocks begin to appear in series with different technologies developed, sponsorships and other growth strategies.

 

01_121.jpg

 

But the current success of Panerai is not only that good expansion strategy, but as in fashion, has been governed entirely by chance. Everybody knows that we are involved in some way in this world that has many adherents Drapery. So many of us gathered in various forums and sharing a common hobby.

But I dare say that much of the success of these watches are not only due to the clock itself, but an element that sometimes bring us head, Correa. Clocks are extremely chameleon that can completely change your look by simply putting a belt or other model

 

01_082.jpg

 

No wonder many of us have a few Panerais and a dozen different models of belts.

 

01_090.jpg

 

That is why when we buy a Pam not only buy a watch, buy a lifestyle, a base that will change as the mood of their owners, depending on whether you decide to put a brown alligator strap or a beef aging skin tones clear or one of the various craftsmen we have for this forum.

Only 1,950 pieces of this special edition created to commemorate the classic models made ​​for the Italian Navy.

With a very large box 47 mm stainless steel with black dial with the logo of 1950.

Because this was the first special edition with historically correct size of 47 mm with a locking crown is probably the most popular special edition of the history of Panerai.

Movement has seen, you can appreciate a sapphire crystal beams show their beauty and similarity in design to the Rolex movements crops, pocket watch that these pieces were staying.

 

01_083.jpg

 

The patented locking crown makes him look very distinguished.

 

01_097.jpg

 

Essential for any collection, as a limited edition for its historical similarity to the clock built in "1950". Also known as Fiddy, this watch, in my humble opinion, has more character than any Panerai watch.
