Panerai watches often fascinates. For me, they hold no special place, but they are an interesting company...one of the oldest watch companies in the world, their collaboration with the Italian Navy, and the unique design of their watches captivates many collectors.
This example, nicknamed Bronzo, started a mini craze on bronze watches. Bronze is not a usual material for watch cases, as they tend to tarnish over time...but the creative folks at Panerai found something interesting...the tarnishing is a kind of patina, and can be quite beautiful as well...as these pictures testify:
I am not going to say much about the watch...plenty of information on the internet that a quick google search can kick up. So enjoy the photographs of this very nice Bronzo, owned by my friend Timmy.
