I've been thinking about getting the 111. After seeing those pics I'm going to pull the tigger. Nice watch and pics.

The 111 is a great watch. In my opinion, you buy it and never feel want for another Panerai.

Except for the 24 (or 25).

Thanks guys! Yeah, that was my rationale exactly when I purchased the watch. To me, the 111 is one of the best modern representations of the Panerai heritage without being a reproduction. So far, it has worked, my Panerai itch seems to have subsided.

Anyone have a cartier tank louis? I think vox has one but cant find any pics. I would love to see some from actual owners.

Ironically, the 001 was the watch that gave me the pam bug.

PAM has been growing on me for the past few months. I gotta stop looking at the sale corner/showcase..yikes.

Nice Pam. I don' t like the aftermarket strap though. Although its not very "panerai", i'm looking for a dark brown Aligator strap with deployment which i think goes well with stainless steel case.. Panerai's straps/buckles are expensive... I just got a M series PAM111 last week. What are your thoughts as a dress watch for IW5001 (lets say, portugese automatic white dial, gold hands) IW5454 (portuguese manual, white dial, black seconds subdial at 6pm position) Thanks, Alcoholic Drink

A dressy alligator strap would look desperately out of place on a large hunk of metal designed for navy frogmen. I have yet to see a dressed-up Luminor case done well. But that's just my two cents worth...

The OP straps are laughably expensive, but they are well done. I don't regret these two:

That's what happened to me - I was looking for a diver to replace one I sold and kept coming back to the PAM until I bought one.
