1941 Officine Panerai Commando Watch Set

Modern Panerai collectors are rabid angry beasts and they'll likely kill a small child for the upcoming vintage 1941 'Radiomir Panerai Commando Set' auction by Antiquorum. A group of very rare watches built for Italian Navy Frogmen in WWII. Included are a compass, depth gauge and wristwatch with documentation of ownership and details of their use in sabotage missions attacking British warships. This set is expected to sell between $57,000 and $75,000.


A previous set featuring watch/compass/depth gauge but also included a morse code device and diving knife. Link
