    Ahhhh...! Nice, thank you guys! I thought that the Oyster plus the Perpetual was something about the movement being made of. Completely different story. [​IMG]

    Speaking of blue (and of cushion cases), I found one I was surprised to like. Surprised, as I usually only like the simplest of Panerais. This is stil simple, but the minute ring, applied markers and blue dial is somewhat of a departure from the historic Pannys.

    White gold, 42mm. Chézard cal 7400 movement with dead beat seconds (fun, because you can trick your friends into believing it's a quartz :p.) Limited edition from 2001, 160 made. Even found a NOS for sale.

    Saw that one in person at the Panerai boutique in Florence back in 2005. Looks better in person. Was one of the older special editions they had available for sale.

    I like the blue Pan but unsure on the whole so it wouldn't get me over the line. Interesting indeed. Now as a gift I'd….

    Loving the blue, red accented Rolex Stitchy, I do like that indeed :nodding: But I would.

    Stitch&Cleav, I can certainly appreciate that, as it's not my usual bag, but something about it's quirkiness really works for me.

    At the moment I'd say it's even sharing grail status with an original RO Jumbo ref. 5402ST :satisfied:

    Kap, I really do like it. I suppose when you say blue I would never even consider a Pammy which may have of course 'coloured' my view. (sorry)

    The 5402ST on the other hand :slayer:

    Luckily, I don't have to think about it too hard, as I'm in no risk of being able to acquire either ;-)

    Ooh, that is quite a price bracket, some heavy competition in there.

    Thanks

    That PAM is pretty. Add it to the list of blue watches I would acquire. The only blue watch I am on the fence about is the WG Sub with blue face. That is as loud as the All-Green Sub LV.

    Dang! Should have bought it from Patrizia back then. I want to say it was about $17k. Nice return on investment!
