Up for sale is my Panerai Luminor 8 Days 560. It's the older Q series that has the sandwich dial unlike any of the newer series that are being sold online and in stores that only have the printed dial. If you're anything like me and have seen the printed dial, there really is only one option. The watch itself is in very good condition with only small imperfections that I can't even pickup with the camera. There is one small nick on the back if you can see it. I condensed the photos in order to upload, but I have better quality jpeg's I would be happy to send you. Watch comes with black rubber and black leather straps. Both are in great condition, and none of the holes in the leather are worn out. It also comes with the box, changing tool, booklet and STAMPED papers by an AD. Please feel free to contact me by PM or by email at mans 727 AT yahoo . com (no spaces). Since I'm new, you can reference my eBay account if you'd like. It's mands727. I also have it there for a much higher price to account for their fees.
PayPal is preferred for the safety of both parties. Will only ship to US. I will include shipping. I live near Chicago and can do a face-to-face in the vicinity. Asking $4450 plus 3% PayPal fees. Thanks for looking!

Giovanni Panerai (1825–1897) founded Officine Panerai in Florence, Italy in 1860. By 1900, under the leadership of the founder's grandson Guido Panerai (1873–1934), Officine Panerai had become an official supplier to the Regia Marina (the Royal Italian Navy), supplying watches and precision instruments. Panerai watches of this time consisted of cases designed and manufactured by Rolex SA and movements made by Swiss manufacturer Cortébert.
The Florence-based watchmaker produced wrist-worn diving instruments and, between 1938 and 1970, delivered around 1600 watches (~1000 3646, 24 6152, 36 6154, 500 6152/1, 60 GPF 2/56), most of them to the Italian Marina Militare. Two models, today identified as the "small Egiziano" and the "big Egiziano", were also produced for the Egyptian Navy. By 1970, the company ceased to provide watches to the Marina Militare, as they were neither cost-effective nor met the naval specifications. In 1993 it then moved to launch its products to the civilian market. The actor Sylvester Stallone spotted and bought a Panerai Luminor at a jeweller's shop in Rome in 1995 to wear during shooting of the film Daylight. Stallone ordered a small batch of such watches with his signature on the case back, called Slytech, offering some as gifts to friends. This hugely influenced the resurrection of the brand.
