    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.

    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.


    thanks, dopey. :)

    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
