Sellita movement? No thanks. 120M water resistance, on a "sport/military" watch? Huh? Weird crown placement? Nope. I'll stick with my PAM196 and my Omega Seamaster.

Agreed with the history comment, Panerai is definitely a piece of historic significance. I mean there was more than Rolex and Omeeeegah in the 20th century

I know their history, not much there. They sold some watches with Rolex movements to the military. That is about it as far as watchmaking goes. Until Stallone discovered them. Sorry to disappoint you.

Are these made in Italy or Switzerland or "Switzerland"?

There are Swiss made watches made by hand in places that have a long standing history and there are Swiss made watches that have an abundance of parts from elsewhere that has had just enough changes/additions made in Switzerland to label it Swiss Made.

Yes you are unequivocally right. but unfortunately I think we all kid ourselves about the Swiss Made on the dial for most of our watches. You see, if you're looking at a watch that costs less than $5k (so that encompasses most of the mid-tier and affordable Swiss watches), they do incorporate many foreign parts, this has been known for a long time. Hence for most if not all of the mid-tier and affordable Swiss watches we see in stores and on Drop, it is the high cost of the Swiss labor that allows them to put a Swiss Made on the dial, as the cost of the labor is greatly superior to the cost of the (finished or raw) parts that will have been sourced abroad. So these brands will all have many parts from abroad. Some brands have less foreign parts (more expensive brands, think Tissot, Longines, Beaume & Mercier, etc.) and some will have more foreign parts (think more affordable brands, Steinhart, Glycine, Oris, Anonimo, etc.). That's why I basically sold the many, many watches that I had collected in the past two decades, and stayed with Rolex, Tudor and Grand Seiko. Three brands that use mostly (if not all) in-house parts.

Anonimo now IS NOT the same as when they were in Florence, Italy. Yes, their roots are from Panerai when Panerai was still in Italy. After the purchase and move to Switzerland the Panerai managers, designers & watchmakers that couldn't/wouldn't/didn't relocate founded Anonimo. So the original Anonimo watches that were made in Florence did indeed have Panerai influences and underlying characteristics. Most of them are fine pieces, imo, and I actually own five. I'm a fan of the Professionale, Cronoscopio, and many of the Dino Zei's (esp the bronze models). Tbh, some aren't that attractive either, but I'd stand behind their build quality. Unfortunately, after Anonimo got bought out and subsequently moved to Switzerland, things changed and not for the better. If interested in original models make sure you get the one's made in Florence. They all state "Made in Italy" on the backs.

I got a first edition Militare from fleabay last year for this price. It was manufactured in Firenze by the Panerai workers that formed their own business. I also own a PAM. It’s a favorite in the rotation just like my Anonimo. They wear about the same. The workmanship on my watch is perfect, the originals were all hand assembled. The ETA auto movement works perfectly, keeps 5sec daily. The Kodiak leather band on these watches are hand made in Italy and waterproof. Unfortunately the company was bought out and moved to Switzerland. These new watches are not made like the originals.

This reminds me of another drop where there was 11 purchasers needed and I think about 70 were sold so therefore I’ll go out on a limb and say this is quite the charming timepiece ( yeah imagine that)

The designers are the designers from Panerai who refused to move when Panerai were sold to Richemont and moved lock stock and barrel to Switzerland.

I would rate this particular drop as equal to, or slightly worse than an invasion of giant insects from outer space .

And mind you, I am no fan of giant insects.

We have to get Drop to feature their “Nautilo” dive collection just for you. According to the company they have a “Sporty Character” and are good to 20 ATM. They put the crown at 4:00 on these (where’d they get that idea?). A 42mm in bronze. I’m maintaining my no thank you posture as I’d rather have the giant insect.

Damn--I see they're all listed as sold out now. Just as well, I have a few bronze watches and don't think I need (or can afford) any more at this point (but I never say never ;- )

Not a bad looking watch. Reminiscent of some Bell & Ross or Panerai styles. Two things bother me though. First is the water resistance. 120 meters seems fairly low for a watch trying to achieve some type of military status. Second, how would you ever replace this leather strap Considering the unique attachment at the 12 o’clock side of the dial?

Now the Granda coupe would be a fairer match to the Ferrari, no?

Maserati, damn it! And while you're likely to find a few Ferraris in Jay Leno's garage, I'm willing to bet there ain't no low-life Granadas in there!
