According me, the historic perfect Panerai watch, respect to the actual models of the Historic and of the Special Editions collections, might be realized in this way:
- 47 mm polished steel case Radiomir type (see the ref. Pam 21) or polished and brushed steel case Luminor type, i. e. the Fiddy case...(127-217 Destro and 230); - -Sandwich- black dial, with the writtens more wide (Luminor Historic coll. from 2005, Radiomir 1938-Base-Black Seal and 8 Days, Luminor 1950 47mm and Marina Militare Destro) or tobacco/dark brown (Radiomir Replica 47mm, Luminor 1950 8 Days 47mm and Radiomir 1936 47mm platinum) or black California (Radiomir 1936 47mm steel), but in anycase without the writtens Panerai at 6 o’clock (Radiomir 1938 47mm) or California on the rehaut (Radiomir 1936 47mm); - Hand-wound vintage movement Rolex-Cortebert (21) or Angelus with an 8 days of power reserve (230); - Domed glass (Luminor 1950 47mm, Marina Militare Destro and 8 Days, Radiomir 1936 47mm); - Little hand of the small seconds at 9 (127-183-190-197 and 230) or at 3 o’ clock (217); - Covered case-back (Luminor Historic coll. until 2001) or transparent (Luminor Historic coll. from 2002), but with the dodecagonal bezel of the case-back with the written -OFFICINE PANERAI BREVETTATO- (i. e. Patented) engraved (Radiomir 1936-1938-Base-Black Seal and 8 Days); - Calf strap with the ardillon buckle with the written -GPF Mod Dep- (i. e. Registered) engraved (Vintage coll., see the ref.

Therefore, considering the actual collections, ever according me, the real -historic- collector might our attention among these models only, that are the most representatives respect to the vintage models at that time:
- Pam 021 Radiomir Replica 47mm (Rolex-Cortebert 618 cal.), but with the steel case; - Pam 230/267 Luminor 8 Days 47mm/Marina Militare Destro 47mm (Angelus 240 cal.); - Pam 127/217 Luminor 1950 47mm/Marina Militare Destro 47mm; - Pam 111/112/219 Luminor Marina/Base/Base Destro 44mm; - Pam 183/210 Radiomir Black Seal/Base 45mm; - Pam 232 Radiomir 1938 47mm; - Pam 249 Radiomir 1936 47mm; - Pam 341 Radiomir Egiziano 60mm.
