PAM114 Base with a white dial

I took these photos of the Panerai PAM114 a while ago. The PAM114 is an unusual Panerai because of its white dial.

Like it is often the case, this is a watch that I would never have considered for myself until I saw it in person. The 114 and the 113 (with sub seconds dial) are often referred to as women's Panerai watches. And although I agree that the PAM114 will look great on any woman, calling it a woman's watch is kind of odd. It may actually be one of the coolest base Panerai watches, for both women and men.

Panerai first produced this model in 2002 (E series) and it still is in production. According to the millesimation database on Paneristi.com however, no units were produced in 2007 (J).

Panerai watches are known for their legibility, because of their size but also because of the Luminova and Tritium that is used to make it possible to read the time in the dark. The numbers on the dial PAM114 however are black. The dial of the 114 has Luminova dots at the position of the hours, to ascertain that one can still read the time in the dark. The painted dial has all the numbers, as opposed to most Panerai base watches that usually only have the 3,6,9 and 12 on the dial.

The last photo shows the PAM114 next to a Panerai base watch that is more common, the PAM112 with its large numerals and sandwich dial.
