We see that all new Panerai models have ‘vintage’ patina, also all case designs are ‘vintage’ and all dials are exact copies of important ‘vintage’ from their past…. The new Panerai are getting so close to original, one can hardly see the difference anymore. The thought pops up, why having the original ones, when you can have the same without radiation?

Question to you: Has ‘vintage look’ become more then just a fashion? & How you think Rolex will act on it this now that the rumours are getting louder they will introduce a perpetual calendar in non oyster case in their Cellini line…
