How OP make a PAM


Recommended Posts

Thanks for sharing, that was brilliant. One question though, I thought most of the PAMs have ETA movements so I was surprised to see them putting the movement together like that. Do Panerai license the movement and build it themselves? Sorry for the noob question.

The newer automatics are in-house movements :)

Great video! I didn't know the CG arm was tested for tension and when they do the water resistance test it's with the CG arm partially opened

Still wondering the same thing. How and why do they do the testing without locking the lever?

Not being an expert by a stretch of the imagination.... but surely the point is that they are only testing water resistance to a nominal depth whereas the CG is designed to stop the pressure at depth from popping out the crown or reducing the ability of the gaskets....

IE the CG lever is designed for maintaining the watch in deep sea though the watch should still be water resistant (Nominally) without the CG.... also underlines why they test the lever tension...
