Advantages and disadvantages of wire lug.

Recommended Posts

In my mind, owing to meet the requirements of Marina Militare, Panerai(or Rolex) strengthened the structure of case and lug. So the wire lug of Ref.3646 (predecessor: Radiomir) was modified to the shape of Ref.6152(Radiomir 1940). Then they added guards on the crown to improve the water resistance, that's Ref.6152-1, which is widely known as the ancestor of Panerai icon - Luminor.

Just as watcher001 said, they improved and modified the crown bridge to meet the requirements of Marina Militare. The first Panerai watch for Marina Militare adopted the leather strap and screw in crown, equipped with 618 movement, and agreed that this watch was unable to supply to other clients within the several years. (for military use only). Here are several 3646 watches at different times.
