Notes on this Watch Type: When these watches first came out they were advertised as being 1 from a limited edition of 1000 watches and only made for the European market. They must have sold so well that a second series was made from 1 - 7000 (This is to be confirmed!).
I have an issue with this watch as it IS a quality watch that resembles an Italian Panerai. I have written to the company but they deny having anything to do with Camel Trophy or the watch. I just find it very hard to believe that a concern like Camel would risk copying the patented crown clasp from Panerai without some kind of an agreement! Maybe that is why they are all numbered?

This watch: This watch is from the first series (1-999) and the oldest Team Professional in my collection.  The watch has "Official Teams" on the face which indecates that the watch was most likely to have been brought from a retail store.
