    It's a "Legend" LE automatic. Nice "Newman" styling, but has the world's cheesiest caseback engravings...

    Also, the Royal Oak in its simplest form and smallest size is really very nice.
    I love the simple RO, time only with the blue dial. Excellent choice!
    That's pretty much the only RO I like as well, especially in this version:

    I am ever more tempted by Panerais but do they do one that is not enormous? Like 40mm or less?
    As for the Panerai, they do have 40mm girl sizes in the Luminor but I woud suggest that you consider the Radiomir.

    I thought the same thing. Like the new smaller (42mm down from 45mm for historic Radiomirs) and thinner PAM336:

    Also comes in steel as PAM337.

    I am already too large for life. If I wore a 44mm Panerai, physics would break.

    (real answer: physical weakness)


    Try a 44mm Titanium.

    @TC - Very, very nice Panerai! Wear in good health. What do you think of this...

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    PAM360 10th Anniversary Edition for Paneristi.com. 300 pieces.


    Is that orange Luminova ? [​IMG]

    I'll just stick to my 195, I think

    God forbid that you develop some biceps! It'll throw the balance off on your Chan suits.

    Lovely Zenith. So glad they've gone back to their roots but Thierry Nataf has left an ugly legacy behind. A little upset that they've discontinued the standard chronomaster line.

    That's pretty much the only RO I like as well, especially in this version:

    Not sure if its orange but it attempts to replicate the patina of the old tritium dials.

    I quite like the Orange actually. My personal favourite will always be the sandwich dials I think

    I understand what it's trying to do. But colored Luminova to fake a vintage look is pretty sad IMO.

    Well, unfortunately tritium is no longer in use and as you know, luminova will never patina. FWIW, I think its very nice as the luminova would be too stark against the dial and the PVD. Can you believe I turned down a PAM195?????

    I can - many people on risti did. I was there in NYC when Uncle Jay and Bonati discussed it and AB showed a prototype - I really liked the idea and couldn't help getting on Jay's list.

    I remember Uncle Jay sending me an email saying that there were a few pieces left. [​IMG]

    We had a good laugh about it when I caught up with him in DC.
