[linked image]

2004, first monster chronograph edited by pamerai as a Special edition of 1000 units. Its case is made of steel. It was shown with another extreme submersible, the Pam 194 2500 meters. The Pam 202 have for nickname : Subzilla. In chronologic order the 187 is the second Panerai to use the 1950 design after the Pam 127, it even takes some of its codes.

2005, second oversized chronograph, in collaboration with Sylvester Stallone, produced at 500 units as a special edition too. In this series there is also another Sylvester Stallone edition with a white dial, the Pam 225.

Some personal comments:

Here we can say : what a beast ! But for which one ?

Even though the two use the same design, have the same size, everything seems larger, bigger, stronger and perhaps violent on the 187 is also visible on its caseback. The 202 is not weak, by far, it just looks softer (Surprising for a Stallone Edition).


Godzilla vs Rambo ??
