评论 [Review]
The cooperation between Panerai and Ferrari is a successful case of “marriage” between cars and watches. Ferrari’s position in the sports car field echoes Panerai’s emergence in the watchmaking industry. Since ending the cooperation with Girard Perregaux and turning to Panerai, Ferrari has developed a self-recognized style. Today, Ferrari watches are sold at Panerai stores. Although not as sought after as some of Panerai’s classic models, they also add a bit of choice to the purchase of watches. Compared with the ‘Authentic’ Panerai, the bezel and lugs of the Panerai-Ferrari watch have been redesigned. The thicker crown is a big sign, and the yellow dot above the crown is A standard point, after turning out the crown, the position of this point must be strictly & quot; rectified & quot; every time before it can be screwed in accurately.
