Very cool Derek. I think it is a nice mix between "classic Panerai" and functionality. The striped dial is pretty damn awesome. Surprisingly so.

@TheWraith Too kind bro nod[1].gif Suited and booted tomorrow so may have to get her out again. The duchess bought it for a significant birthday and she had the matching one if you recall. They hold some considerable sentimental value so definitely keepers!

@stafa this magical creature you speak of is an endangered species. Omega ceased production of the 3572 a few years back. It was probably the case that once you started introducing sapphire, the customer no longer saw the necessity of hesalite.

@derek I appreciate the pushback. At least someone stuck up for the O.G. Moon watch. Still, I think I'll go with the newfangled sapphire. I couldn't bare to deny myself a peek at that beautiful movement at any inkling.

Purchase made, and thus concludes my Amex rewards points savings. Nothing like a watch that matters, which you didn't even pay for. wink.gif

I have the same feeling toward my Omega Seamaster quartz watch. It's only a quartz, but it was a gift from my sister, who I almost lost to cancer a few years ago, so it holds a great deal of sentimental value. Other watches may come and go, but that one will never leave me.

Gorgeous piece. I and you don't get any trouble from the bit covering the crown?

I definitely get that my friend. I hope all is well with you and yours smile.gif

One other thing I'd consider with the Speedy question, the inscription on the sandwich is now wrong. It was not "the only" watch worn on the moon. That bothers me personally but YMMV.

That is a great looking JLT. Good to get some advice from someone in a similar position. Flying under the radar and not being flash is key here. 

 

May I ask if you bought yours new or used? Tempted to go for a used one and get it sooner than wait, but equally enjoy the idea of a new one that is mine and will be retained for years to come.

That is a bit of an imperfection, no doubt. But if you're buying new and you want the display caseback, it's the only option. Perhaps when a more accurate inscription comes out in a future 3573 release, if the company ever gives up its stubbornness regarding that claim, I'll buy the new caseback. For now, my die is cast.
