With Officine Panerai fitted presentation box.
Officine Panerai began its rich history in watchmaking in Florence since 1860. In the beginning,Panerai manufactured watches exclusively to the Royal Italian Navy, but in 1993, they decided to release a collection of three limited wristwatches. In 1997, Panerai became a major player in the market of fine watchmaking by becoming a part of the Vendôme Luxury Group, later renamed as Richemont Group. The Pre-Vendôme is used to describe the watches made from 1993 - 1997 due to Panerai’s change from being an independent watch manufacturer to a mainstream manufacturer.
The present Luminor Slytech Submersible is exceedingly rare and one of the most highly collectible Pre-Vendôme models. The case back of the watch is engraved with 65/200, and presumably only 95 examples of the watch still exists in the market. The Slytech Panerai also features Stallone’s engraved signature on the case back, where Sylvester Stallone’s nickname - “SLY” is printed on its dial.
