Officine Panerai's 2009 editions included issues of just 300 to 500 pieces. With such small numbers, these luxury timepieces became collectible as soon as they came out. Now that a couple of years have passed, their value has increased considerably and they are in danger of disappearing forever.
The first of these luxury timepieces is an addition to the Luminor line from Officine Panerai. This watch saw its heyday in the 1950s but still has enormous public appeal. A detail rarely seen in luxury timepieces is the tiny magnifying glass over the date window, making it easier to read. However, the main attraction here is the new power reserve dial, which is placed just above 6.
As the name implies, the Officine Panerai Luminor 1950 Regatta Rattrapante is made for water racing. This one even has a five-minute counter for counting to the start of the regatta. There is also a chronograph with a split-second capability.
The last of these luxury timepieces from Officine Panerai is the Officine Panerai Radiomir Egiziano, a design first used for the Egyptian navy in the 1950s. The muted tones of brushed titanium surround the wide, dark face with small seconds dial beside 9. Only 300 of these luxury timepieces were made, and this is one of the few places in the entire world where they can still be found.
