A yet unknown 3646 / Type E watch surfaced

by on Sep.12, 2011, under General

Recently we added another Ref. 3646 / Type E watch into our database.
The caseback number is inside the number group of today existing Type E watches. Another “piece of the puzzle” is added – our database is permanently growing.

Features of the watch:
Reference: 3646 / Type E
Dial: “California Dial”
Case number: 260889
Movement: Rolex Cal. 618 / Type 1 mod.

Typical features of Ref. 3646 / Type E watches are the removed / not existing Rolex stamp in the inner caseback and the Rolex Cal. 618 / Type 1 mod. movement. Also the “California Dial” is corresponding well with the flat bezel of the watch – a typical combination of dial version and bezel. A Panerai dial with its sandwich construction would need a higher bezel due to its height (the photo on page 156 in our 2nd book “Vintage Panerai – The References” explains this). 

You can read more about 3646 / Type E watches in our 2nd book “Vintage Panerai – The References” (chapter I.V, page 122-131)
