If you can find a PAM62 at a decent price, that's a very nice 40mm Radiomir option. Zenith derived movement. It's a rather elegant Panerai. I have it's rose gold twin, the 103. It wears smaller than my Rolex Sub.

Mimo, yeah Man. We accidentally ordered 2 of the watch that's pictured. We didn't get any confirmation on the first order so we thought that transaction hadn't processed and we reordered it. The watch doesn't cost to much more than would the shipping to send it back to Joma so I figure I'll just keep it. Maybe I'll gift it but more likely I'll have 2 of that simple dress watch, 1 with the bracelet and 1 with a black strap. That would still be under $200 before the cost of the strap.

 

Natalie got to see all of the 'Congrats' in this thread and got a really big smile out of it, so again, I thank you guys.

 

Oh, and Frills, she saw your last set of pics in the thread and asked 'Is that a real guy', I nodded yeah and she said you look like you could be ...ahem...'Hot'... so...yeah.

My lurking here is severly limited by the Spoiler function, which currently is only working as a link that kicks me to the top of the page instead of revealing goodies. :(

Happening to me today too. Sometimes it's the site, sometimes it's my connection, but basically it's just the page not loading properly.  Don't lose hope. :)

Apparently it's not just when the page isn't loading properly, more people are reporting the problem in the problem-thread. Hopefully it's solved soon, I have pictures of Miss Upton watches to peruse. 

 

 

 

edit: aaaand, now it works again. Hello.

So we didn't get any confirmation for our order on that Seiko but it showed up this afternoon. By the time we placed a second order the price had dropped from $80 to $64 (and the next day it was $62.50). The first order, to our surprise, arrived today and I have to say that this is pretty much exactly the watch I was hoping to find when I started looking in the $600-$1,200 range. It's slim, 38mm, has a second hand and simple, refined markers, a silver dial and the date at the 6:00. I don't think it looks cheap at all and feels solid at least while it's on the wrist. The second order is on the way and for $190 total after shipping and tax I'll have 2 of them. At that price I think I'll keep both and keep the bracelet on 1 and add a nice black strap to the second for some variety on nights out.

 

Compared to PPs, JLCs, Rolexes, etc. of this thread these things are almost costume jewelry but still I have to say that I'm very happy for what I'm getting for that $95 a piece. Mimo you may be right that this does take away some of that impulse to spend more right away. I'm looking forward to getting the next order with the 2 Seiko 5s and another one of these so I can get the straps on.

 

Very Happy.

 

BOOM!  Congratulations, BIll!  It is so awesome to be privy to your search, your story, and that reveal pic where you share your choice with us with much glee.  SO awesome. One of the many things that keep me active in this thread.

 

THANK YOU for sharing!
