Maiale Torpedo, a attack torpedo of the 10th Submarine commando. The attractive color of Patina, T-dial Panerai, when these two combine together, it is my 6th Panerai watch, Special Edition of Panerai.
The large size wooden box of Panerai SE comes with an OP key, which can open the SE box.
It seems that it can also open the tunnel of time, leading directly to the deep Mediterranean Sea during the WWII. Two members of the 10th commando of the Italian Navy quietly sneak into the outer sea of North Africa by this Maiale Torpedo. The British Navy 15 sea miles away did not realize that a big disaster is coming over.
This piece of OP key leads me to open the the ship warehouse of the 10th commando in Venice.
One after another, many order awaiting Maiale Torpedos stand tidily there in the warehouse.
Different attack teams have different disguise painting colors.
When I was still intoxicated in the allusion of 60 years ago, my iPhone rings, it is a call from the HK Panerai Boutique, informing me of the arriving of the BT SE pam412 which I registered for waiting one year ago.
Since I first got in touch with Panerai in 2007, by getting one piece each year, I have already had 5 pieces of Panerai watches: pam048J, pam183K, pam232J, pam000M, pam001A, and this should be my 6th one.
The next morning after getting the call from BT, I immediately purchased this pam412.
Every pam fans must be familiar with this Outer Carton.
I opened this large wooden box by the OP key.
The brand new pam412 has not yet take off its Protection Shell.
The SE certificate on the back.
The OEM rubber strap and screwdriver attached with the SE. Two bookets and the International Guarantee Card.
This SE Panerai from BT also comes with a Guarantee Card. pam412 is a model with small second hand so this Observatory paper and the Movement Sticker are surely indispensable. This is the whole set of the Special Edition.
OEM Strap on the pam412 is one of the most textural straps, it is very tough with no sense of usual delicacy. But when wearing together with a long sleeve, you need to watch out that it may fade.
BT SE pam411, 412…… 418 is the 3rd Panerai model with a torpedo logo and the first Luminor model with a torpedo logo. The first two are both Radiomir models.
Close up this tiny Maiale torpedo once more.
My GR has a strong light balance, so it it not likely to shot that Patina Color, the actual product is in a beautiful yellow color.
When I purchased this watch, I asked Boutique left a small Hamburger shaped box for me to place pam412. The SE box is too large that it is not convenient to take the watch in and out.
The filled dial of pam412 has a delicate font, the tougher font of pam367 goes better with the A Series.
The same scene also placed a picture of the pam001A with a fatter font on the dial.
The yellow color of the T-dial Patina is slightly different from that of the 412. But viewing separately, pam412 is actually very beautiful, particularly the landscape of HK on the back. As a Panerai fan in HK, pam412 has a much deeper meaning different from other models.
