Notes

Dial, case and movement signed. DIM. 44 x 44 mm. THICKNESS 14 mm. SLY TECH DAYLIGHT DIAL During the filming of 'DAYLIGHT' SYLVESTER STALLONE asked Officine Panerai to produce a special limited edition watch. Officine Panerai intiially planned to produce 200 examples with a white dial and blue indexes and hands, but after seeing an example, Stallone requested that the dial be white with black indexes and hands. Officine Panerai changed the dials as requested, and fewer than 10 models remained with blue indexes and hands. In the end, Officine Panerai produced only 105 of the 200 examples originally planned. For this reason, this example is one of the rarest Pre-Vendôme Panerai avalaible in the market.
