Did not know that Panerai had in the past "closed 6 & 9's" on the dials, I always thought the vintage piece, 3646 and 6152 always came with those types of dials....
I'had have to go back to Mr. Volker's books (References
) and take a closer look, I must have missed it.
Do you know if the watch spent some time at the bottom of the Ocean?
Fantastic restoration by the way
