The face of a legend – “The Egiziano Piccolo”

by on Aug.29, 2013, under General

Ralf captured the wonderfully aged brown “Radiomir Panerai” dial of this Ref. 6154 “Egiziano Piccolo” (small Egiziano). Faded Colors and cracked luminous markers and numbers are giving this watch a very Special appearance and unique look. In its flat 47 mm stainless steel case, it is today one of the rarest Vintage Panerai watches. The reference 6154 was produced for the Egyptian Navy in 1954 in very small numbers – until today only a few watches surfaced into the Vintage Panerai world.

Compared with the references 6152 and 6152/1, the 6154 is even more elegant and almost “streamlined” which gives it a special nickname in the Vintage Panerai world: “the Maserati amongst Ferraris”. Find out more about the special shape of the 6154 here.

Just because… 6154!

by on Feb.24, 2013, under General

Ralf captured his stunning Ref. 6154 “Egiziano Piccolo” in a bright afternoon sun last summer. Today I stumbled over another photo of those which he sent me for use in our blog – the view from the side shows the unique  flat 47 mm case  and the wonderful dial.

Without a doubt this reference is one of the greatest watches produced by Panerai. It was produced for the Egyptian Navy in 1954. The brown aged “Radiomir Panerai” dial and the 8 mm Rolex crown gives it an striking appearance.

You can find a photo of the inner caseback with the special Rolex decoration here.

Ref. 6154 fetched world record auction result

by on Dez.15, 2012, under General

A very rare Ref. 6154 “Egiziano Piccolo” fetched the remarkable auction result of 326.500 US$ (including buyers premium), which set a new world record for a Vintage Panerai watch: LOT 268 on Christie’s Sale 2610 Important Watches (New York, December 14th, 2012).

This reference was produced by Panerai for the Egyptian Navy in 1954. The brown aged “Radiomir Panerai” dial and the 8 mm Rolex crown gives it an striking appearance. The reference 6154 is especially known for the flat shape of its 47 mm case.

Compared with the references 6152 and 6152/1, the 6154 is even more elegant and almost “streamlined” which gives it a special nickname in the Vintage Panerai world: “the Maserati amongst Ferraris”.

You can compare the different case shapes of 6152/1, 6152 and 6154 watches in our book “Vintage Panerai – The References”, chapter II / page 174-175. The Ref. 6154 is featured in chapter III of our book “Vintage Panerai – The References” (page 184-201) of which only a few copies are left in our stock.

Ref. 6154 – a view on the inner caseback

Ralf captured the engravings of the inner caseback on his Ref. 6154 “Egiziano Piccolo”. It bears a wonderful Rolex seal above the case and reference number. Interesting to know, that there are different versions of inner caseback engravings on all three 615X references (6152, 6154 and 6152/1).
