because it took me a while to set up my photo shoot set, but I've got a few pictures to share as well.
Hi Asi, it's exciting to see this forum re-opened!
These are my four (out of five) Panerai compass treasures. The one on the far left is a Luminor Compass, the next one a Radiomir Compass, both are from the 50ies/60ies, and the two guys on the left are from the 80ies.
Here is a stand alone shot of the Radiomir Compass with the, admittedly ugly yet authentic, 'Marina Militare' strap and its brass buckle, the replacement strap done by the Italian Navy.
Next a couple of stand alone shots of the Luminor Compass with its appetizing pus-like liquid inside, yet on a beautiful vintage strap.
Here the two side by side. The Radiomir Compass has a brushed finished, while the Luminor model comes with a anti reflective coating.
The case back of the two side by side. Notice the 'Brevettato' is only on the Luminor Compass and the brushed/coated finish is exactly the other way around.
Finally a couple of shots of the late models produced in the late 70ies and 80ies. These ones are from 1984.
Thanks for looking!
Vintage Panerai rockz!!
