The PAM716 Mare Nostrum is lim­ited to 1,000 pieces world­wide and in a new 42mm steel case. Look­ing like no other Panerai in the fam­ily, the Mare Nostrum was the first chrono­graph model that was cre­ated for the Ital­ian Royal Navy. With only lim­ited spec­i­fi­ca­tions of the pro­to­type af­ter the flood in Florence in 1966, Officine Panerai re­leased the 5218-301/A in 1993 but it fea­tured a mas­sive 52mm case. Af­ter the dis­cov­ery of the ac­tual pro­to­type a few years back they were able to re­lease the PAM603, which is the Ti­ta­nium ver­sion of the Mare Nostrum. The new PAM716 Mare Nostrum fea­tures a more man­age­able 42mm steel case with a flat brushed fin­ished bezel en­graved with the tachome­ter scale. The chrono­graph of the PAM716 is con­trolled by two push but­tons in a tra­di­tional style. Be­hind the screw down case back, the new Mare Nostrum (PAM00716) uses the same move­ment as the pre-Ven­dome 5218-301/A, which was the OP XXXIII Cal­i­bre. This move­ment was cre­ated and per­son­al­ized by Panerai on the ETA 2801-2 core and Dubois-Dépraz chrono­graph mod­ule fea­tur­ing a 42-hour power re­serve.
