Panerai has just released another watch in honor of its fans, which are known affectionately as Paneristis. The Radiomir 1940 3 Days Paneristi Forever, known more simply as the PAM 532, features the Radiomir 1940 style case with a black DLC coating and utilizes the P.3000 movement and is limited to just 500 pieces. I hope the watch is allocated to true Panerai connoisseurs and not to flippers who just want to make a quick buck off the watch. Source: Jake’s Panerai World
