I guess you love Panerais or you don't.  I'm not sure how useful they are if, like me, you only have a couple of watches and aren't about to go on a Frilly-esque spree.  But after today I can say one thing:  I get it.  If I had a handful of nice dressier watches and maybe something more conventionally sporty  (like your Speedy!), I could see space for something this fun.  They're very charismatic, if not exactly classy.  Like a purple Fiat 500 Abarth. 

They are also rather addictive.

I love their design. Really fantastic, IMO.
Does that keep track of which months have 30 and which have 31 days And Feb) or does it always cycle through 31? Also, is the above the colors you got?

It is an annual calendar, so it only has to be reset on March 1. I got the colors in the picture with a brown strap and a dark gray strap. The dial in the pictures looks tan, but it is really Pantone Warm Gray 3C.

That does negate the questions of flipping the numbers on the bottom half of the date disc or having them ferris wheel style or all facing in or out.

ANyway - it looks cool as hell, wear it in good health and enjoy the many conversations I'm sure it will start.

Yes very very cool! I look forward to seeing many, many more pictures! I would love to hear your opinions on the finishing off the movement as well.

So. True.

Pannys are not for everybody perhaps, and it took me quite a while to "get it" myself.... but now I really can't see NOT having at least one in my collection (if I can call it a collection).

I actually wore this one for most of my long weekend, btw...




Three cheers for the red, white, and blue.
