Sorry maybe I wasn't able to articulate what I meant.

Some kids get an entry level job, and buy an entry level luxury car (BMW is common) and act like duche bags. They were probably always duche bags but now they think they are rich douche bags.

There is nothing wrong with the car, I actually considered buying one, I was playing and didn't mean to offend anyone.

Congrats on the 112, in stiches! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif I am Pam-less for the time being, sold my 111 last year. Not quite sure why, it was a cool watch. I was on a AP/JLC/PP roll, and felt the Unitas was beneath me I guess shog[1].gif Also, I always wished the case was brushed, not polished.

I have been thinking about Panerai again lately, probably due to the season. With thick sweaters goes a bigger watch smile.gif Maybe I'll go with titanium this time around? The 177 is very cool. Or maybe something completely different, a Radiomir perhaps? The new 42mm with an inhouse movement is sweet!

Been wearing my IWC 3717 for a while now. Was thinking about selling it, but it has a lot of charm satisfied.gif

That IWC is gorgeous. I need to pick me up one of those one day. Have to go used since the new pieces really don't do very much for me confused.gif

Me too. I always enjoy photos of the steel models, but IRL I find the polished cases much too reflective/blingy/shiny. A friend of mine has one that's been heavily worn and it looks great now, much more muted with all the scratches and wear.

I sometimes wonder if I should've gotten a PAM 000 instead and either have it brushed or just banged it up quickly to get rid of the mirror-like surfaces. Shininess aside I think the 000 is just about perfect with the sausage dial and especially the solid case-back which feels a much better fit for this kind of watch, considering historic applications as well as the generic movement.

Agreed. Haven't seen them in the flesh, but unlike the reduced Luminors I like these smaller Radiomirs.

I've never been a fan of that model. If you do sell it, maybe look for a 3706 (or 3713!) in good shape. Along with the Speedy one of the greatest chronos, IMO.

Don't worry, Audi has taken that crown.

Must be a regional thing. Every douchebag finance guy I know has a cheapo black plastic running watch (über-douches go for the ones that say "Iron Man")

Also something about pretending to be humble in these difficult times - so wearing a plastic Casio watch makes you look cooler than wearing a nice mechanical watch.

Whether the people who wear them are douches or not, Panerais look silly on most people. You really need to have Arnold Arms to pull them off.

I'm guilty of the big watch fetish myself but am coming to the conclusion that anything bigger than 40mm in a casual environment/36mm in a formal one is a bit much for average sized guys.

 I don't have a Panerai, but if I were going to get one I'd definitely go for it in Titanium.  I love the way it looks and feels especially on a watch with a large case.
