Panerai PAM112 is Luminor Base piece which is rather big in size, although is sits quite comfortably on almost any wrist. With 44mm round case it’s not what you would call small. All standard Luminor features are present: trademarked lever crown protector, sandwich dial, luminous dial and Panerai manual movement. The case is made of premium grade stainless steel that’s being brushed and polished. Both case sides are covered with sapphire 3.5mm glass which is enhanced with anti-reflective coating. This means that beautiful Panerai OP X movement is visible through the back sapphire glass. Front glass is scratch resistant, so you don’t have to worry about damaging it.

As mentioned above, this Panerai PAM122 is highly reliable as it uses already proven OP X movement which has been developed in accordance with Swiss watchmaking tradition. This is very mature manual wind movement that features 17 jewels, Glucydur balance, incabloc anti-shock device and Swan’s neck regulator capable of producing 21.600 semi-oscillations per hour. Furthermore, this movement has around 56 hours of power reserve when fully winded. Already proven sandwich dial with SuperLuminova coating will make sure that this Panerai PAM177 is visible very well in the dark as well.

Despite having see through case back, it is very water resistant. And it’s not ~30m or similar. It’s staggering 300m, which makes it completely suitable for swimming and some serious diving. Like most of the Panerai models, it comes with two straps: leather and rubber. Obviously, you wouldn’t be taking leather strap diving. Instead, you can easily change it for the rubber one with the provided tool.

Everybody that’s looking nice and evergreen Panerai model that fits well both on suit and less formal can get this Panerai PAM177 without worrying if it would fit. This base Panerai is ideal candidate when you are buying first Panerai Watch. It is very stylish, sporty, durable, practical and most of all, reliable. Suggested retail price is $6.300 which is not a lot having in mind what it offers. It is probably as least as you have to pay in order to get into Panerai world, but it gets you lots of the more expensive Panerai models. Definitely great value for money!
