    I've been thinking about getting the 111. After seeing those pics I'm going to pull the tigger. Nice watch and pics.

    The 111 is a great watch. In my opinion, you buy it and never feel want for another Panerai.

    Thanks guys! Yeah, that was my rationale exactly when I purchased the watch. To me, the 111 is one of the best modern representations of the Panerai heritage without being a reproduction. So far, it has worked, my Panerai itch seems to have subsided.

    Ironically, the 001 was the watch that gave me the pam bug.

    Nice Pam. I don' t like the aftermarket strap though. Although its not very "panerai", i'm looking for a dark brown Aligator strap with deployment which i think goes well with stainless steel case.. Panerai's straps/buckles are expensive...

    I just got a M series PAM111 last week.

    What are your thoughts as a dress watch for
    IW5001 (lets say, portugese automatic white dial, gold hands)
    IW5454 (portuguese manual, white dial, black seconds subdial at 6pm position)

    Thanks,

    I used to hate the RO. It's appeal just totally boggled me. But more and more over the years I feel like I need to get one some day.

    A dressy alligator strap would look desperately out of place on a large hunk of metal designed for navy frogmen. I have yet to see a dressed-up Luminor case done well. But that's just my two cents worth...

    The OP straps are laughably expensive, but they are well done. I don't regret these two:

    That's what happened to me - I was looking for a diver to replace one I sold and kept coming back to the PAM until I bought one.
