Panerai’s characteristic – pure Italian design loyal to its own tradition and unchanged by time.
Great story. Lila drops by my studio to have me photograph her Panerai watch. No biggie, she asks if I mind her hanging out and watching me while I shoot. I said no because I shoot tethered ( camera attached to the computer ) so she can view the images while I shoot and we can correct the layout as we go. Lila hands me the watch and I immediately clean the glass and start to put it in my special globe used for shooting watches. She then says,” please don’t drop it, it is valued at the average price of a Westport Home.” I wish she had never told me that. I got a little nervous, but thank god I did not drop it. These photographs were for a book that is put out every year on vintage Panerai Watches.
