A rare chance to acquire this beautiful and rather imposing stainless steel Panerai Radiomir California, which has had just one previous owner from new, originally purchased at Wempe in London on 12th December 2012.
This watch has some wear as the previous owner believes in enjoying his watches. It does have some light surface marks and is not “perfect” but this is reflected in the price and the watch still looks absolutely magnificent, I am just ultra fussy!
