    With Panerai presentation boxes, special edition scrolls, certificates, C.O.S.C., product literatures, second covers, second straps and screwdrivers.

    The present models were created by Panerai in 2002 in collaboration with the famed British gun manufacturer Purdey. The covers over the dials function as a protection for the watches while hunting and are hand-carved in the same manner as the sides of Purdey's guns. They are originally offered by Panerai as four individual models, each design was produced in a limited series of 100 pieces only.

    With all four designs offered at the same time, this present lot is a desirable collectors' item.
