    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    A sad situation indeed.

    In regards to the Panerai debate, I don't really understand the complicated models, but I really love the base ones. I never really cared for them until I tried one on my wrist. They are very seductive. The rational part of my brain won out, but it was close. It is hard to justify spending that much cash on a watch with such a pedestrian movement.

    The one draw for me is that I have NEVER seen a Panerai in the wild. Where I live they really are not associated with douche-baggery as they are elsewhere.

    :laugh: yes i would. insurance would compensate me well, i could easily upgrade. but please dont.

    also, i dont know if "all" is the right word to use. i only have 2 right now.


    when you see them in person you cant help but admire the sheer masculine beauty. i have a few friends and business people i see on occasion that wear them. they always look great.

    Newcomer, what's pedestrian about the movements?
    Early Pam models Rolex - Angelus - Eta then moving to Panerai modified Eta - JLC, Lemania, Minerva, FP, GP and just recently the new 'In house' Panerai movements P2002/3000 etc.

    Stitchy, may I recommend taking a look at the PAM 0? Not only the cheapest PAM, but one of the nicest (IMO)

    Not my pic, just quickly googled

    Unless you prefer the Radiomir design, in which case a 210 is a great place to start :)

    You do realize that this is not a Panerai manufactured by Panerai, right?

    Thank you 'Dukes - gdl203' but I can't take the credit for the Pam 21 - I should have mention above it was a M8's at dinner. Great Pam all the same.
    'Kaplan' is right 'in stitches' the PAM000 is a stellar icon and just happens to be the least inexpensive.

    Some where in that region. They rarely come up for sale, only 60 made.
    This is the 'watch p0rn' thread after all! ;-)

    What is the reference for this Patek?

    By the way, your generosity is admirable. Brings a tear to my eye.
