    I believe Panerai has other clocks that don't say Panerai in big letters like this. This one looks like you're running a watch store - a bit too "promotional" for me

    The desk clocks and watches Charvet sells are strangely tempting to me, even though they resemble the sort of junky executive gifts given to aging middle managers in the 1970s and 1980s...

    The only thing I don't like about the Charvet desk clocks is that they look like copies of the JLC Atmos clocks, which I love and have zero use for.

    You must be more leisure class than me if you don't even need a clock.

    I rely on a circa 1949 18kt Omega wristwatch and a '60s Imhof desk clock for time--quite sufficient.

    Also, I think that Panerai clock looks tacky. It looks like something Sator's ideal WIS would include in a group shot.

    random watch question: how often should automatic watches be serviced if worn on a daily basis?

    I guess it would depend on the watch. Rolex recommends servicing its watches every five years or so.

    Thanks I was hoping for that, had seen a AP. But not an AP fan ... RoyalOak Was also looking at traveling alarm clocks, the Chopard MilleMiglia is the one that is the most apealing at the moment. As im hoping to get a MilleMigliaXL by easter. Have also been looking at their lates GMT (luc) which is nice, but slightly more than im willing to spend. My other option would be a GrandSeiko GMT, but they are sure hard to get by ...

    The version without the big PANERAI writing is the PAM00254. Those things are absurdly expensive for what they are. They run about $1800.
