Such a great watch Dino. One of my favorites of yours, if not my favorite.

Thinking about trading my BLNR for a PAM337 + cash.

Love the BLNR but I find I wear my 1675 or ExplorerII far more often -- the BLNR is too flashy.

Thoughts?

If you're not comfortable wearing something, then no reason to hang onto it. And if you miss it, it's not hard to get another one. That said, I must have a very low sensitivity to flash as I don't think I could ever think of a stainless steel sports watch as flashy--PCLs or otherwise.

With a BLNR and Explorer II, you are overlapping in the GMT function and since you wear the ExII more often, I think it is a good choice if you think you will enjoy the PAM 337 more.  As for flashy, I think a 47mm would be slightly more flashy than a BLNR but I am biased.

Yeah, same here. I don't even consider a gold watch with bracelet bling. Stones = Bling in my book.

So... I may go 36mm after all...

Well, to be fair, he used the word "flashy" here, and not "blingy". LOL

I don't see the BLNR as flashy at all.  Yes, I might have preferred brushed center links over polished, but I still think its not a flashy watch.  

 

The trade you are suggesting wouldn't interest me at all.  I've never found Panerais all that comfortable to wear and besides like JB, I think a big honking watch like a Panerai tends to be flashy just based on size alone.  How can one expect people NOT to notice a watch that is about the size of a tuna can strapped to their wrist.  If you like and want a Panerai, then go for it, but I see that as a more flashy time piece.  Good luck with whatever you decide.

I think the PAM in question is actually a 42mm Radiomir . . .

Very, very timeless and classic! Aaaandd, I can't not say something . . . LOL Coincidentally, my wife actually wears that as her daily. I'm attaching an old pic just so you know I'm not just saying that to give you a hard time, and my wife will tell anyone she prefers "men's sized watches". Seriously, that's a nice choice.
