I looked at the OP website and it seems like they re-issued it this year - called it 355 and changed the dial a little bit (no more railroad track). I don't know if the movement is still the same Girard Perregaux though.

Thanks. Unfamiliar with the 355 but perhaps that was what she was hinting at. Will check it out this weekend, along with the 214.

gdl: Any experience with either the 214 or the 288?

Sorry, I haven't really looked at PAMs since the G or H series - I completely lost interest when Bonati started to take the brand and designs all over the place. When there's a car wreck on the road, I prefer to look the other way... I'm sure I missed a couple of decent pieces in the process.

Gotcha. A couple of the newer Radiomir's may interest you - 346, 242 etc. But I agree - there have been some very questionable releases over the past 2-3 years (47mm depth gauges!).

Did you ever pull the trigger on the Zeitwerk?

While I agree with the point on the wrist size, I'm trending towards the 214 as I intend to wear this watch casually (i.e. never to the office), and I prefer the beefier watches for casual wear. I also feel a 42mm Radiomir, much like the a 40mm Luminor, is a bit against the ethos of the brand. But I do love that GMT. Tough choice.

Medtech: I already have a few 44mm Luminors, and like the size for casual wear, so am comfortable with the idea of a bigger watch.

I've got a 98. I find that the Radiomirs work for me in the smaller sizes unlike the 40mm Luminors. I've also got a Zenith movement 40mm PAM62 which is my favorite Radiomir.

The GMT movement is kind of irritating in the way it operates but I do like the looks.
I think the new 355 still uses the GP movement.

The 62 is the best Radiomir ever made. I'm jealous every time you mention it.

Great watch Congrats. I would love to pick up a Vintage Collection Aquatimer but for the cost of that one, this might be a better option.

- agreed.. I'm sick of Limited or anniversary editions as well as any collabs..

Not taken today, or the rest of the picture would have been as snowy white as the Exp II on my wrist
Edit: And then there's the date

Nice. I agree on the date.

I wouldn't do it with a Luminor, but I think it's fine to go smaller with a Radiomir.
