PANERAI 213 RATTRAPANTE


Well this watch came rather unexpected to be honnest. I was ready to sell my Zenith Port Royal Concept since a few months but I knew it wouldn't be an easy thing to do, so I waited patiently, as all of sudden I got the occasion to swap the Zenith for this very nice Panerai Rattrapante. It certainly wasn't a watch that was high on my priority list, but as things go you always learn to appreciate it when you get in contact with it, so it was with this nice watch that measures 44mm (the best size for me) and housed in a 1950 Luminor case, with a nice convex saphire glass. I think I was lucky to have made this deal and I hope the new owner of my Zenith will say the same thing!
