The movement is stunning!  Sadly, I just don't love the dial.  The positive side of that is I won't have to set up a charity to compete with Stitchy's JLC charity. 

lol. more for me. wink.gif

Yours is nicer anyway.

For me, the OP aesthetic or at least the good strain of the OP aesthetic is thesimplicity. I loved mine - sandwich dial to add a just a little visual interest but otherwise unadorned - hands scaled to the numerals, otherwise blank dial.

I don't get a PAM with a guilloche dial, reverse cyclops, petite seconde and power reserve.

the dial is not actually guilloche, that was a reflection from the case on the iphone taking the pic, the dial actually is flat, like below. but i will take pictures once it is out of the safe and ready for sale.

either way, i agree with you. i specifically chose my panerai because i wanted a simple, no frills, 2 handed watch.

edited to swap out bad pic.

while we are discussing panerai, the only slight issue i have, is that i dont like that leather and rubber straps have no mico adjustment (at least that i know about). i am kind of between sizes for the punch holes. no biggie.

This is always an issue with straps for my panerai. Depending on the type of leather strap, you can mold/stretch your strap with some hot water. For ammo straps and casual straps, water won't be an issue. For gators and crocs, you're probably out of luck. The OEM rubber strap may be my favorite. It is has just enough stretch to be comfortable at all times.

yeah, i like my watch to be loose, but not too loose, im ok. i just end up adjusting the hole that its buckled too, once or twice a day, if at all.

If anyone has any leads on panerai for less than $3500 let me know.

Edit - authentic panerai biggrin.gif

All you needs is a time machine. Can't believe how expensive the non-manufacture PAMs have gotten.
