Panerai Submersible PAM24 A-series
A known issue with the early submersible PAM24 is that the tritium on the skeleton hands may start to crack and even flake. This isn't necessarily a problem, in fact it adds character. This doesn't occur on just the PAM24, I've seen it on other older models with skeleton tritium hands as well.
The 24 has skeleton hands and a t-dial
Panerai produced 1,500 units in the A,B and C series. So there are 4,500 pieces in total with a polished bezel and a t-dial. From D and onwards Panerai produced another 12,200 units of the PAM24 for a total of 16,700 watches. That's an impressive number if you consider the limited production runs that Panerai are known for. The PAM24 is of course one of the longest running Panerai models.
