It's massive. But then again it is a Panerai.

Hmmmm......Maybe I should give Richie Sandor a call and see what he thinks about a watch futures contract ........

Well then I hope it works out marvelously well for you as an investment.

It should. Secondary prices are around $13,000-15,000 now, versus $10,400 at retail. As production completes and people on waitlists realize they won't get one, prices will only go up.

What's your wrist measurement, foo?

Are you speaking of the 372?  I did a quick search and found a bunch of for sale ranging in price from $8,100 to $8,900.  I didn't see any in the secondary market that were $13,000-$15,000

Perhaps I am looking at the wrong piece?

I believe it's the 587.

No, not the 372. Checkout my new posts over the past couple of pages. PAM587.

Thanks for clarifying that.

Thanks.  I didn't realize you were getting a 587.  Wishing you luck with whatever you decide to do with it, keep/sell.  :cheers:

It's a beautiful watch, but quite contrary to what one might believe, the Radiomir type cases often wear much larger than the Luminor ones. Without the crown guard of the latter, the former is all dial.

Until they inevitably release another limited edition that's near-identical.

I say get out while the getting's good!

Of course, that's just my opinion; I could be wrong. smile.gif

Panerai watches with "Marina Militare" dials have always been rare, and this one is a near perfect replication of one of the few original Panerai archetypes. I think it will easily be in the $15,000-$20,000 range within a year's time.

While I was there I looked at a ton of Panerai's, the pieces in rose gold are amazing. Also tried on an MUT and MUT Moon, both in steel. The MUT or the moon, but in gold, would I think be my next watch, post RO. Fark I need so much more money.

Reagrding Panerais size. Yes, they are big watches, no two ways about it. But, to argue that that makes it look ok on a small wrist is silly. They are supposed to look big, but they are not supposed to eat up your hand and devour it.

Ill never tell anyone not to wear a watch they love, but lets be honest about how it looks. They are some smaller watches I have tried on that I loved, but they looked like ladies watches on my wrist, so I had to pass. That was my personal decision, and I understand not everyone goes in that direction, but a watch that is too small or too large for the wrist of the wearer, will always look wrong in my opinion.

Here are some pics of Panerais, that while they may be large watches, do not look in the least to be wearing the owner.
