#15 : Pam 193 vs Pam 307
The two thicker Panerai. Both have a deep gauge function.
The Pam 193 is from the I series ( year 2006 ) and is classified as an instrument. 600 units were made.
The Pam 307 is a Special Edition of 500 units from the year 2008 ( K series ). It has been made in honor of the Mike Horn's Pangaea ( *1 + *1 bis ) expedition, explore - learn - act is its motto.
When the Pam 193 has a black dial the Pam 307 has a blue one. Both have a deep gauge function. Both have a 1950 case of 47 millimeters made of titanium. and this is with the movement ( or movements ) almost the only points able to unit these two models.
They are very similar and different in the same time that it is possible to play at find what is different and find at less ten dissimilarities Views of the dials :
The yellow arrow show the depth ...
A lot of little dots all around the dials
Skeleton hands ...
... under a sapphire think of 3.0 millimeters.
The dials are large and open. On the Pam 193, hours and minutes markeers seems more dark yellow
Views of the bezels :
The bezel by itself is narrow,
its indexes and markers are small ...
... the 15 minutes are carved but not fulfilled with black.
The detent is soft.
The pearl is set in a triangle. It seems larger and flatter on the Pam 307 .
Views of the cases :
Placed at 10 hours the polished pushbutton, with the logo engraved, start and stop the depth gauge function
Pure 1950 style but a very think 1950
The protecting crowns are engraved Reg.T.M ( *3 ).
The lever of the protecting crown of the Pam 193 is classical.
The Pam 307 benefits of the advanced technology
It has a thiner winding crown ...
... and a roll.
We can see the new quick strap change system on the Pangaea. Advanced technology !
The Pam 193 keeps the old system with screws.
Views of the casebacks :
The casebacks are very domed.
And show a different decoration ...
Opus Facere ( *2 )
In chronologic order the Pam 193 is the second Panerai ( after the twins 249/262 ) to receive the Latin text Opus Facere
Logo of the Pangaea expedition and Mike Horn signature.
For the both, 120 meters are their water resistance.
OP 6612 for the Pam 193
And 6747 for the Pam 307, they are definitively not the same watch
The movements :
Pam 193 & 307 :
Movement: Automatic mechanical, exclusive Panerai OP XV calibre, 13¼ lignes, 21 jewels, Glucydur® balance, 28.800 alternations/hour. Incabloc® anti-shock device. Power reserve 42 hours. Côtes de Genève decoration on the bridges. Panerai personalised oscillating weight. Chronometer Certificate (C.O.S.C.). Depth-gauge electronic module with Metas individual certificate.
Functions: Hours, minutes, small seconds. Depth gauge functions: indication of the maximum depth reached during the most recent dive, indication of the amount of battery power left, depth indication during a dive.
Some personal comments :
Never two watches could be so similar and so different at the same time.
It's impossible to say that one is better than the other, no more that they are complementary, just the 307 is maybe more a summer watch and at my surprise the 307 seems smaller on the wrist ( a few smaller ).
These two monsters offer a real diving function and are for me, because of their domed caseback, the most comfortable of the submersibles, they are impressive but not very heavy at all 161/162 grams ( head and screws only ) like the Pam 382 Bronzo.
Instrument vs watch ??
Thanks for watching
