They take the subway. Like Mike Bloomberg
i know i may be in the minority on this, but i tried the 176, and the brushed titanium wasnt doing it for me. also, i wear my watch with a more dress attire, and i felt despite its size, the polished 112 would still be ok enough not to look absurd with a SC and tie.
but whats in the driveway?
stitch - you use the R-word a lot.
Driveways are retarded. Especially in New York.
i am sorry. fixed. i will try to stop. i know its offensive to people, especially to those who have contact with, by family or community, some one who actually has mental retardation. i just forget, and use it freely. its no bueno.
gdl gets offended often, doesn't he?
You are a nice person.
gdl is a fine gentleman, who i have had the pleasure to meet in person. he has a fine sense of humor, and a thick enough skin.
so no, he does not.
Also creator of this thread which promotes him to grand snark.
g is good people.
stitches - what country did you buy your panerai watch second hand from?
Did you get the VAT back?
Hi Stitch, I think because of your job selling watches, its certainly reasonable for you to wear your PAM with a SC and tie. However, its purely a casual sports watch, particularly due to the thickness and size of PAM. So for myself, I would not be thinking about whether a Panerai in steel or titanium would look better with a SC/suit etc. I'm not saying people outside the industry can't or shouldn't wear a sports watch with a SC and tie, but then I would probably choose something like a Rolex Daytona, Speedy Pro, or something which is not as chunky or as wide as most PAMs. So while I understand your reason for choosing steel, I probably would choose a different brand to wear with a SC and tie, or a suit & tie.
FWIW, I also prefer the duller finish of brushed titanium and brushed steel (1950 models) for the Luminor models. The fact that the Ti models also come with a tobacco dial is the cherry on the cake. Now, for Radiomirs, I think polished steel is a better match
Was this meant to be funny?
Separate names with a comma.
