    The real question is whether it's a fad or a trend.

    Thanks.

    Yup, that Mako is a solid little watch, but this one? She's just purty:

    You want to be a watch dealer? Biz is slow right now, that's why his inventory is backed up.

    My new three amigos, and a smaple of the ones I used to have. I've bought and sold probably 50 watches, my fave would be the Breitling Old Navitimer on bracelet. I'll have to get another some day...

    Quoted for irony

    Now, seriously, this whole Panerai bash/love circus has been done before and is pointless to the extreme. Some like the designs, some don't - why does it have to be more than this. Why don't I see posts saying: "Am I the only one who doesn't like JLC?", or Oris or whatever other brand? Why this strange and singular focus on wanting to express a dislike for Panerai over the other dozens of watch brands? I'm perplexed.

    In any case, that's really not the object of this thread - it's a picture thread, not meant to rehash every 30 pages who likes Panerai and who doesn't and whether 44mm is too big or not - the answers are the same they were 2 years ago or 10 years ago: it is for some, it isn't for others.


    Agree. Neither liking nor disliking Panerai makes you special. Let's see some pics of great watches for guys like me who have wives that regard even a couple of Stowas as a pointless extravagence!

    Rolex also receives an undue amount of hate.

    Am I the only one who doesn't like Breitling? Also, you're right gdl. Every panerai is like a snow flake. Nothing like the other ones.
