    You can view the entire range as well as pricing information here: http://www.abp-paris.com/

    They have an extensive gallery with a number of Panerai combinations, so that should provide you with some inspiration. You'll have to be very precise with your measurements, but I found the ordering process overall to be quite straightforward. In the notes section just mention that you will pick up in person to have the strap mounted and the pinhole punched.

    Unfortunately, they just raised prices 2-3 weeks ago... [​IMG]

    It's rich watching a bunch of people who try so hard to be 'classy adults' on the Internet act exactly the way children would when criticized. A new poster said something about the community being tasteless and now the community's actions have basically proven him correct. It's amazing how you guys do it and still believe yourselves so refined.

    Styleforum is a great place to come to learn about brands and quality and options, but it isn't a place to come about actual style. Use the forum for what you can, for some people it's posting in threads about all the new stuff they bought on credit, for others, it's reading about what others bought, learning about these items and investigating based on their own taste.

    Alright you bastiches. Here's the other side. I'm not a Rolex fan; I just happen to have a very passionate affair with this one particular watch. I agree with KtownGreg who said "Often simple is best."

    Also, I'm pretty familiar with the concept of porn, and this Christopher Ward shot definitely qualifies. It may not be your favorite flavor of unobtanium, grail porn, but it is porn.

    That CW watch is plain ugly. And at CAD$600, does not qualify for this thread. Please remove. Now we're talking! [​IMG]
