Speaking of blue (and of cushion cases), I found one I was surprised to like. Surprised, as I usually only like the simplest of Panerais. This is stil simple, but the minute ring, applied markers and blue dial is somewhat of a departure from the historic Pannys. White gold, 42mm. Chézard cal 7400 movement with dead beat seconds (fun, because you can trick your friends into believing it's a quartz .) Limited edition from 2001, 160 made. Even found a NOS for sale.
