    Panerai: The Making Of A Design Icon, Part 3
    In part three of this series, we look at the advanced manufacturing and testing processes that go hand in hand with old-school watchmaking at Panerai.

    Behind every modern watch without exception are machines – timing devices, computer controlled milling machines, and so on. But it's inherent to watchmaking that the machines alone don't suffice. The amount of actual hands-on time varies from one watch to another, but at Panerai hand-assembly is still the order of the day, and the machines have their masters, who are responsible for ensuring that for every testing process, outcomes match expectations. Every test has to be verified and validated before the watch proceeds to the next step of the testing processes all Panerai timepieces undergo before they leave the factory, and every step of the way, there are watchful eyes and expert hands.

    At the end of the day...I guess if I could only have one watch a PAM would be it...now which one???

    Most models are IMO just a classic, understated, elegant timepiece.
