Panerai Special Editions Collection is like no other Panerai collection you have ever seen. The watches in this collection are limited release representations of what it means to be a leader in the luxury watch business. These stunning timepieces range from understated and elegant to higher complicated and extraordinary.

Every year since 1997 Panerai produced a small number of special edition watches to delight and entice the Paneristi all over the world. These watches have a wide range of complications, unusual designs, and are crafted of only the best, corrosion resistant materials.


Shortly after Panerai was bought by the Richemont group in 1997, the company released their first Special Edition watch – Radiomir 47 mm PAM 00021. This limited release (60 pieces) re-edition of the original 1938 Panerai Radiomir put Panerai back on the map as far as luxury professional watches were concerned. Crafted out of modern, corrosion resistant materials with an upgraded movement and a 41 hour power reserve this stunning diving watch became an instant classic once again.

The watch features classic Panerai design of the cushion case, black dial, and oversized Arabic numerals at 12, 3, 6, and 9 and comes equipped with the nostalgic wire lugs on a timeless leather bracelet.


After a prolonged period of struggle Panerai was finally capable of dedicating the time and the resources to the development of new and improved models under the leadership of the Richemont group. In 1999 Panerai released a five new special edition watches. These fully functional chronograph watches were designed to show the world that Panerai is once again a brand to be reckoned with.
