Catalogue Note

Accompanied by a Panerai guarantee card, instructions, presentation case

The PAM 203 was made in a limited production of 150 pieces and it is said that the President of Panerai personally selected the fortunate collectors that were offered the opportunity to purchase this special timepiece. The PAM 203 houses the legendary 60 year old Angelus SF calibre 240 movement. Panerai spent two years refurbishing and upgrading the movements in preparation for production of the PAM 203. This piece is most certainly one of the most exclusive of all Panerai watches made in the last recent years.
