Quite a reasonable size for a watch with 5 complications. I have a thin wrist, and the Novecento is an ideal size.

But, I am still considering one because it is still unique.

By the way, he also designed a very cool range of pens. Google his name. They are beautiful and a wonderful option to Mont Blanc.

So I pulled the trigger yesterday (got the same combination as the picture) - took me a few hours to climatise to the thickness (wasn't the diameter, but the thickness.. Nearly 15mm, which makes it a bugger with my barrel cuffs though French cuffs are fine).

In summary, very happy.. The watch strap is narrower tha usual, but the balnce suits the watch. Also the quality of the leather is very impressive (all hand made in Tuscany).

Yes I realise he has also designed some interesting pens. & I agree, Mont Blancs are everywhere.. Personally I prefer Delta pens - also from Italy.

Another detail I like about the designer is his history as a Alfa Romeo racer back in the 70s - As a owner of Alfa Romeos, a passion I certainly appreciate.

Will post some pics soon.

Nooooooooo.

I probably will buy something around Christmas or in mid-Jan when I go back home and can slyly take my Grandfather into Lussori with me.

I go back and forth everyday between wanting:
IWC Regulateur


IWC Aquatimer (even looking at the Costeau editions)



de Grisogono Instrumento Grande


Hublot Big Bang


PAM 190


PAM 292


Glashutte Orginal Sport EVO Chronograph


Ulysse Nardin Marine Chronometer

I would drop the DeGrisogono and Hublot from that list. PAM190 and Regulateur are my two favorites in your list

Yah; but, I kind of like the Radiomir when it is just the plain face and if I was tempted to spend the money on the DeG or the Hublot then I would seriously consider just the rose gold Radiomir. They have one at the Torneau in TWC and it is just beautiful.


The Regulateur does call strongly to me as you know my affinity for out of the ordinary displays (A. Lange, GO).

PG Base Radiomir (PAM231) is even better looking than the PAM190. That's a lot of dough for an ETA 6497/2 powered watch though

When I moved I didn't bring any of my mags with me so I can't recall if it was in Watch Time or whatever; but, which model is it that is finally using Panerai's own movement?

PAM200, 201 and 233 so far I think. The linear PR indicator is fugly though.

More models coming this year with new manufacture movements

Nice lineup, SoCal.

I really like the blue-handed IWC regulateur and the Big Bang best.

I prefer the GO in either of the diver incarnations but that is a nice watch as well.

The Radomirs don't really do it for me and for some reason I've never liked any non-Freak UN I've ever seen.
post #660 of 48312
Yah the blue hand IWC is in steel; whereas, the other one was platinum. But, in any event if I decide to buy the IWC (or UN) I have a store in NJ that is an AD where the owner is this crazy lady in her 60s that is in love with me and has already said that she'll "get me whatever I want for the price of beans."
I had never really liked UN until I was on the subway and had one in my face for 10 min while the owner had his hand on the pole.
I like the GO diver in black; but, it reminds me too much of a Sub and as I already have a GO with a silver face the silver dial is less and less appealing. I didn't have a pic; but, I do love the GO Senator 60s; however, I feel I would neglect my vintage Longines if I bought that.

You don't like the linear reserve Gdl?
