My suggestion: PanoMaticLunar in steel. Very versatile and a pretty complication





post #1112 of 48312
That's gorgeous.

The moon phase is one of my favorites complications. It really gives you the sense that the time shown on your watch is related to the cycles of nature and the observable movement of the heavens, and not just some abstract measurement.

The PanoMaticLunar seems to be the most common of the Glashutte watches; but, I still think the power reserve on the hand wind with a decorated 3/4 plated AND the double swan necks is prettier to look at.

I guess it's a matter of preferences. I like the moonphase complication more than the PR indicator - there's something a bit... romantic about it. I agree I would prefer a handwing Pano but there's no manual Lunar (yet). When it comes to the dials, the PML speaks to me more than the PR.

I don't think you can say it's a more common watch than the PR - I think it's probably the favorite of the WIS community, and I can see why.

A couple recent additions and a couple old favorites.

GMT with ceramic bezel. I kind of got this spur of the moment.
My wife and I were in Las Vegas and we were about 20 minutes early
for dinner reservations. So we ducked into the watch shop at the Bellagio.
15 minutes later I had this.


PAM 25 Titanium Submersible.


IWC Big Pilot. Has the fishy crown.


Lange Auf/Ab. I'm wearing this today. Have to go to the bat mitvah
of the daughter of my wife's best friend. I'm not looking forward to it.

Impressive zippyh ! We have a pretty similar taste in watches

The 1815 Up and Down is a gorgeous watch. Excellent balance in the dial design. And look, no cut-off numerals!!

Nice collection zippy.

Very nice.
Are all the dials on the Panerai Subs textured like that? I really like yours.

No, the steel Subs have flat dials.
