    Letter/Year Designators (How old is your Panerai watch?)

    LETTER/YEAR DESIGNATORS

    On the back of your Panerai is a letter designator. This letter represents the year in which your watch was manufactured. Below is a list of these letters along with the associated year of production. Use this list to get a general idea as to how old your Panerai is!

    S: 2016
    R: 2015
    Q: 2014
    P: 2013
    O: 2012
    N: 2011
    M: 2010
    L: 2009
    K: 2008
    J: 2007
    I: 2006
    H: 2005
    G: 2004
    F: 2003
    E: 2002
    D: 2001
    C: 2000
    B: 1999
    A: 1998
    No letter designation: 1997

    PRODUCTION NUMBERS

    You'll also notice that there are numbers following the letter/year designator on the back of your Panerai. For example my PAM 111 reads, 2287/2500. This simply tells me that my watch is #2,287 of a total of 2,500 PAM 111s produced. Combine this information with the letter/year designator and you'll learn that my PAM 111 is #2,287 of 2,500 pieces manufactured in the year 2006. Pretty cool, huh?

    We can add that it continues to 2016
    P = 2013
    Q = 2014
    R= 2015
    S = 2016
