Mare Nostrum Titanio PAM 603 / Panerai

Panerai is once again reviving the Mare Nostrum, this time in the form of a titanium cased special edition with a design reminiscent of the original prototype developed in 1943. So named for the Royal Italian Navy’s WWII victories in the Mediterranean Sea, Mare Nostrum translates to Our Sea. The naming dates back to 1924, used on what was likely the first Panerai chronograph, but any hint of these watches has long since disappeared. This left Panerai with the 1943 prototypes from which to draw their inspiration for a new watch, something we’ve seen before in the ‘90s and again about four years ago. The newest Mare Nostrum is a faithful reproduction of the 1943 model, according to the Italian manufacturer. Panerai will build just 150 examples of the Mare Nostrum Titanio (PAM00603) — via HODINKEE
