The Panerai’s triple combination, nicknamed -Trittico-, in the past utilized from the Italian Navy’s Commandos, -Comsubin- , is composed by the watch, the compass and the depth-gauge, in addition to the torch.
The compass, available in 3 versions, i. e. 1940’s, 1960’s-1970’s and 1980’s, is composed by a brushed or burnished, inox and amagnetic steel case, a transparent plexiglas dome, black dial with luminous baton markers with the luminous rubber integrated in the plexiglas, leather strap and ardillon buckle.
