Those of you that follow Red Clay Soul’s Instagram account know that I’m out here on the West Coast. I like it out here. It’s a great place to visit.
Any time I am within 100 miles of La Jolla, I make sure to stop in the Panerai boutique. It is a great place with some amazing Panerai watches. Kiril, the shop proprietor, is a treasure-trove of information. I bought my Panerai from him here three years ago. It was my first major watch purchase, and I absolutely love it. I know Panerai has a love it/hate it reputation, which I understand, but you know my camp. I am currently searching for #2…
If you are ever in the La Jolla / San Diego / Torrey Pines area, be sure to stop in. It’s like nothing you’ve ever seen, which is my favorite characteristic about Panerai.
Here are some images from the trip:
The Panerai Regatta PAM526. The only Panerai that has any orange.
An extremely rare Panerai SLYTECH 5218-207 A that Sylvester Stallone owned.
Sylvester Stallone is credited for bringing Panerai to the mainstream…
Radiomirs look good.
The PAM372. A very good, historical piece.
The PAM424, with the ultra-cool California Dial.
The PAM499, which features a daylight face. It was hard not to buy this one…
A 47MM work of art. A lot of nods to the historical Panerai’s – gold hands, raised crystal…very handsome.
The La Jolla Panerai Boutique is located at 1137 Prospect Street.
