stitches - what country did you buy your panerai watch second hand from?

Did you get the VAT back?

Hi Stitch, I think because of your job selling watches, its certainly reasonable for you to wear your PAM with a SC and tie.  However, its purely a casual sports watch, particularly due to the thickness and size of PAM.  So for myself, I would not be thinking about whether a Panerai in steel or titanium would look better with a SC/suit etc.  I'm not saying people outside the industry can't or shouldn't wear a sports watch with a SC and tie, but then I would probably choose something like a Rolex Daytona, Speedy Pro, or something which is not as chunky or as wide as most PAMs.  So while I understand your reason for choosing steel, I probably would choose a different brand to wear with a SC and tie, or a suit & tie.

FWIW, I also prefer the duller finish of brushed titanium and brushed steel (1950 models) for the Luminor models. The fact that the Ti models also come with a tobacco dial is the cherry on the cake. Now, for Radiomirs, I think polished steel is a better match
