well as I was completely bored one Sunday afternoon, so I decided to visit a place I had not been to since my university days; The reference library. This library is considered one of the most comprehensive in all of Canada and contains great tomes of knowledge. Needless to say I immediately began a quest on finding as much information regarding anything related to Panerai history. Below you will find a link to a PDF I created from my findings. It took a while to convert to PDF, and unfortunatley I needed to type this out manually so please bear with any mistakes.
