    ^ Nice classic collection. I would keep the Mk XV, but I'm biased.

    Which 42mm Radiomir are you waiting for?

    These wonderful things... Pam 336, 337, 338. Although the one in the middle is the 378 not the 336 (just different dial color, black/brown). [​IMG]

    Need your help guys.

    Would you sell this one? I thought I wanted it. But I have a buyer right now, and I don't know what to do.


    Would you only sell it or replace it? If replace, PLEASE do not say you would then get the Mark XVI. The XV is a classic, the XVI is just fugly.

    Edit: just saw your other posts. Personally, I'd sell one of the others and keep the XV. You don't have one like that, and the 3 you have are all more similar. But perhaps that's how you like it. Not a Pam fan myself.

    Rolex Submariner, Tag Heuer Monaco (McQueen version) and Omega Speedmaster are his fellows. Nothing else in mind (till 42mm Radiomir are on the street [​IMG]).

    Just to make some cash to buy shoes and suits!

    Thanks!



    of that collection, i'd keep the mark xv for sure. the others, you could flip one and then pick up a new one down the line if you missed it.

    Not the greatest pic, but here's a shot of my B&M Capeland S XXL.

    The one on the watch in the first 3 pics is original Panerai.
    I don't know what brand the other 2 are, but having a non OPF or Pre-V buckle on a PAM is a bit off to me.

    This is a great source for straps for larger watches.

    Actually, the one on the watch is a google://"Gunny strap". The other two fine pieces are from (a) google://"Toshi straps" (black thread) and (b) google://"Indy Straps" (green thread).

    Of course I can't possibly know where the leather on the strap came from; I meant that the buckle is OPF.

    Toshi is the link I provided above. Great straps.

    Old picture, but I do love the simplicity of a Vintage Omega. That Blue alligator strap was taken off btw. Panerai is my going to be my second watch purchase, what a beautiful watch.

    What is the current estimate? $600 7 years ago for only an overhaul seems high to me. But, yes, if the last overhaul was 7 years ago I would recommend one at this time.


    Right. That's more like it. I had clean/oil, new OEM crystal, new crown/pin, new gasket done last year on a 1958 Seamaster for around $250.



    I requested they send it back to me and I am going to take it to family jeweler down on Jeweler's row in Philly. The messed up part is the original jeweler is also family and I really think they are trying to jerk me.

    Will update on how it goes and take some pics after repairs.

    It is a beautiful, classic watch. Has the "First watch worn on the moon" on the back of it. Kind of cool.
