That's pretty much the only RO I like as well, especially in this version:

I thought the same thing. Like the new smaller (42mm down from 45mm for historic Radiomirs) and thinner PAM336:



Also comes in steel as PAM337.

Try a 44mm Titanium.

PAM360 10th Anniversary Edition for Paneristi.com. 300 pieces.

Is that orange Luminova ?

I'll just stick to my 195, I think

God forbid that you develop some biceps! It'll throw the balance off on your Chan suits.

Not sure if its orange but it attempts to replicate the patina of the old tritium dials.

I quite like the Orange actually. My personal favourite will always be the sandwich dials I think

I understand what it's trying to do. But colored Luminova to fake a vintage look is pretty sad IMO.

Well, unfortunately tritium is no longer in use and as you know, luminova will never patina. FWIW, I think its very nice as the luminova would be too stark against the dial and the PVD. Can you believe I turned down a PAM195?????

Looks pretty good here too but each to their own.

I can - many people on risti did. I was there in NYC when Uncle Jay and Bonati discussed it and AB showed a prototype - I really liked the idea and couldn't help getting on Jay's list.

I remember Uncle Jay sending me an email saying that there were a few pieces left.

We had a good laugh about it when I caught up with him in DC.
