This forum is for BUYING, SELLING and TRADING only--not for discussing watches. Please limit postings to specific ads for buying, selling or trading watches, parts or accessories that that match at least one of the following categories:

Please see our ChronoTrader Policies and Terms of Use. Learn more about How To Include Photos In Your Postings.

Rules: Postings must be an ad announcing an intent to sell, buy or trade. Full item description and photo(s) must be posted within the message here, not as links to other websites. Links to online auctions and other sites: Links to online auctions, dealer sites or other listings of items are permitted, but you should be careful to ensure that such listings will comply with our other ChronoTrader Policies. In addition, we request that sellers linking to online auctions or listings offer some benefit or accomodation to ChronoTrader readers (for example, some discount or an undertaking to end an auction early, to keep a watch "in the family"). Photos must be of the actual item for sale in its present condition. No counterfeit or replica products. No post for the same item may be repeated within 7 days, except to lower the asking price. Commercial dealers are limited to three unique posts per day. [More...]


The case is in good vintage condition, with some signs of corrosion. The ‘Brevet’ case and crown of this watch are correctly signed, while the radium lumes in hour and minute hands are encased in their original, steel-blue frame. With exception to the plexiglass, which was fractured beyond saving, this Panerai Type D/E appears “as found”. A used, period-appropriate replacement plexi was tracked-down and fitted to the watch. The painted brass dial is in good condition, with excellent patina on the radium hour markers and Arabic numerals. The Rolex 618 movement of this Panerai Type D/E has been painstakingly restored, retaining all of its original features.

A strap was custom-made by Kostas Veni, who studied vintage Panerai straps for many years and integrated the original buckle. What remains of the original strap is also supplied with the watch.

Our friend @Perezcope has written about this Panerai on several occasions, so we thank him for all his assistance filling in the blanks.

The selling price is negotiable for Chronotrader. Currently for sale at £71,500.

Thank you to Jeff and ChronoTradre for the space.
