As the old saying goes, “sometimes less is more” and the Panerai “Zero” is a fantastic example of that. Shedding all unnecessary bells and whistles and sticking to just the fundamentals, the PAM000 is the Panerai Luminor in its truest form.
After about a dozen years of production, Panerai ceased manufacturing PAM000 in 2016, when the brand quietly replaced it with the PAM01000. However, due to the PAM01000’s reduced water-resistance rating (100 meters), snap-on caseback, and spring bars instead of screws, the replacement never lived up to its predecessor. It’s clear that among the minimalist Panerai base models, the “Zero” is the hero.
This unpolished example of the PAM000 takes us back to Panerai's true military heritage. We love the simple sausage dial, the absence of the cyclops and it's crisp look.
This example is supplied with it's original inner and outer box, booklets, stamped warranty papers dated 2015 and it's original rubber strap.
