The first re-edition, the 1993 Pre-Vendome Panerai Mare Nostrum 5218-301 Long before Panerai acquired the 1943 prototype, just as the brand was being revived in 1993, a re-edition of the Mare Nostrum Chronograph was created not an extremely faithful one though, as only limited documentation survived the flood in Florence in 1966 and the 1943 model was not yet in the hands of the manufacture. The Mare Nostrum 5218-301 however quickly became an icon, due to a limited production of less than 500 pieces (said to be 492 pieces). This 42mm steel watch featured a blue dial, an engraved bezel with tachymeter scale and an ETA 2801 (manual-wind) movement with Dubois-Depraz module.
