I would very much like for somebody to explain to me the appeal of Panerai watches.    Not to cast any aspersions, I just don't quite get it. 
 Now that's what I call a Royal Joke.
Thanks guys. I really think everyone who goes near water should have a Seiko diver. I bought this to upgrade my little orange Starfish and am glad I did. Only problem is, there's nothing left to pine for in a "beater" diver. Diashield really is something and as cool as Seiko's kinetic and solar tech is, you get a certain confidence from a plain old mechanical automatic.

Are the lugs, edges rounded or acute? Are there engravings of any kind or is everything...
Pilot on yesterday's flight was wearing one too. Funny how you notice something acutely and start to see it everywhere.
@Renault78law   Love the Senator Sixties. It's got just the right touch of retro-whimsy in the typeface of the numerals without going full-on Franck Muller. I like to think about how much time G.O. executives spent considering and debating typefaces before settling on the sweeping, almost-calligraphic, numerals they ultimately chose.   I do like many of the brand's pieces, particularly the off-beat PanoMaticLunar, though I can see how - as Mimo says - some of the...
Done eating shit on EMES. Position closed. Lesson learned. General Electric anyone?
