Nicholas Manousos had a Panerai on but I didn't catch what model. I suspect he wore something based on the 6497 for the event. The other 4 instructors all worked for Rolex and as far as I noticed wore Rolex. It wasn't a very show and tell kind of event, and there wasn't any sort of snobbery at all. I have no idea what the other students wore. I wore a Nomos Orion which got the interest of one of the Rolex guys, so he asked if he could see it and it got passed around to a couple of them to check out with a loupe.
Thanks! I'm curious what you think of 102. I might give it a try when more dates open up.
