Liv­ing within the pages of his­tory is probably the best way to be­come un­for­get­table. The Mare Nostrum is a case in point. This lux­ury time­piece made its de­but in 1943, and was in­tended for the deck of­fi­cers of the Royal Ital­ian Navy, but they never went into pro­duc­tion. The Mare Nostrum only came to be known through the lim­ited doc­u­men­ta­tion which sur­vived the flood in Florence in 1966; it was based on this doc­u­men­ta­tion that Pan­erai made the first re-edi­tion of the chrono­graph in 1993. Crafted in AISI 316L brushed stain­less steel, in a 42mm case di­am­e­ter, the new Mare Nostrum Ac­ciaio is 10 mm smaller than its pre­de­ces­sor. It uses the same move­ment as the pre-Ven­dôme model—the OP XXXIII cal­i­bre, cre­ated and per­son­alised by Pan­erai with a Dubois-Dépraz chrono­graph mod­ule. The spe­cial edi­tion of 1000 chrono­graphs with a deep blue dial is housed in a box con­tain­ing a model ship for col­lec­tors, that harks back to its vin­tage model.
