Looks like they were trying not to interrupt the hour indices. Instead it looks cluttered and smushed.

I think it might be because of a large case + small movement... could be wrong.

Hugh Jackman is ok, but I'm not interested in opinions of people that are basically paid to wear a watch.  In addition, like Moo, I don't like the subdials all shifted to the center of the dial because they are using a small movement in a big case.

I think Mr. Moo got it right...I believe its a matter of a small movement being put into a large case.

Would it help if I responded to your initial question, "Are Ferrari Panerais completely gauche for non-Ferrari owners?" by stating even Ferrari owners don't seem to wear Ferrari Panerais.  I know and have met several Ferrari owners and at least the ones I know and have met don't wear Ferrari Panerais.  I've seen them wear Pateks, APs, Rolex, Vacherons, Cartiers, and GPs, but never Ferrari Panerai watches. Hell, even one of their former top executives, Luca di Montezemolo was famous for being spotted wearing a vintage Pepsi GMT Master (just google his name and GMT). 

 

If I were buying a Panerai, I'd go for a signature piece like the Luminor or Radiomir.  Skip the Ferrari Panerai.

I just really like how it looks - all the little details, etc.

I've never really be a fan of the Ferrari Panerai watches...However, if you love the watch then go for it! You only have to please yourself with the purchase.

Moo, you are a value-oriented person, from what I can tell. Ferrari Panerais have a terrible long-term value outlook. Everybody hates them. Seeing as how you are a relative rookie when it comes to watches, it would be particularly wise to pick something you won't lose so much money on and can trade away.

Do you remember the sock square and your blazer-and-shorts outfit? Please don't repeat with your watch.

No, you are probably right, as noted. That was my initial thought too, but then I came up with my harebrained idea about the indices.

Yes.  I wanted to rephrase Mr Jackman's "quote" along the lines of "and the case is also 4mm too big".

Personally, I don't.  But it's not my watch, and a) yes, the classic Panny is clean and simple, but because the Panerai design is so distinctive, I do think it works well in all sorts of guises - it's always very much itself, so if you like it, what the heck?  And b) despite what Foox says, the fact that it has shitty resale value can be looked at two ways: yes, if you bought a new one, you'd have your pants pulled down if you wanted to re-sell it.  But the upside is that if you want a mint used one, it's the cheapest one you can buy.  Yay!

 

Do what you want, dude.  Otherwise everyone in this thread will eventually have a JLC Master.  Which is fine, but not very interesting internetness.

I think the Ferrari store finally closed in downtown SF, although it seemed like it always had decent foot traffic for whatever reason. All of the stereotypes you can imagine were true.

But that's the secret code for the Happy Spoo Club to recognise each other.  Doesn't count.

Ferrari makes a fortune selling merchandise with their name and/or logo on it.  Some of it in moderation is fine. A baseball cap, or a Tshirt is fine, or some other single item is fine.  However, I've seen some guys show up at Ferrari events, wearing Ferrari sneakers, socks, pants, shirt, jacket and hat and they look ridiculously stupid whether they own a Ferrari automobile or not.
