Panerai special edition 2010 PAM29
All three aforementioned watches are Special Edition watches, which means that Panerai will produce a limited number of watches in the year of release only. The PAM26 and PAM28 were both limited to 1,000 pieces - there will be only 500 pieces of the new PAM29.
The original 29 was produced in 1998 (A) and 1999 (B) only. There were 1,500 pieces in both years. The new PAM29 had small seconds markers on the dial, which has been omitted on the 2010 version. Furthermore the new 29 has Luminova indices and numbers as opposed to the original version for which tritium was used. The dial is a so-called Tuxedo dial with vertical stripes. This is one of few Panerai watches with a central seconds hand. Most Panerai watches have a small sub seconds dial at the 9 o'clock position. The watch also has a 24 hour GMT function and a date function with a magnification lens (aka cyclops) at the 3 o'clock position.
