Panerai 5218-203/A considered one of the holy grail of genuine Panerai collectors. It is a pre-Vendome Panerai made, which means original products by family-owned Panerai watch company. The company Vendome Cartier acquisition of the company at 1997. Although the Panerai family has been in accordance with the water meter, watches and other equipment for the Italian Navy since the 19th century, 60's, watch only available to the public in 1993. Only a few styles, low production with total 200 cps. The model is the second time in military Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) coatings available to the public. Most of the other luxury brand watches, now offers PVD or black-coated steel watches are also following the steps of Panerai. This 44 mm stainless steel case with black coating is unmistakably one of the coolest Panerai watches done. Of course, patented locking crown and dial-up with the logo "Luminor Marina", and sub-second hand of the "leaf" indicators give us a little more than the nature of this watch than the basic model. Extremely beautiful fat creamy Patina tritium painted dial!
