“No one in the United States specializes in estate Panerai watches like we do,” Smith says. “We spend time analyzing every historic Panerai watch, to know if you’re buying vintage you need to know provenance. Dials, movements, crowns, and case backs all add to the history of the watch.”
The reference 3646 is an unsigned Panerai dubbed the “Anonymous Dial.” Most WWII-era Panerais were produced for issue to the Italian Decima MAS, an early special operations force of the Italian Royal Navy that used SCUBA equipment and manned torpedoes to attack Allied naval vessels, most famously in port of Alexandria in 1941.

“Your heart was warm and happy
With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
