    Default Anyone into Panerai?

    Howdy folks!

    Got bitten by the Panerai bug recently. Got the PAM 00441 2 weeks ago and am loving it! I was looking at a few others before deciding on this and the AD got it for me within a week. Ao anyone here into these as well? Excuse me for the bad snapshot.

    OMG! Just checked the price :O

    Anyway, that sure is a beautiful watch, loved to have one... but as of now... I cannot even afford an Oly m4/3 75-300mm with all my other commitments
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.

    Nice! I am also into watches.
    Sadly I am also into aquariums and now photography. Too many hobbies. Stopped collecting watches after acquiring a few. I am aiming a PAM 392 (42mm) because the 44-46mm ones simply oversized for my small wrists. PAMs normally in the range of 8k - 12k new am I right?
    Congratz on your purchase. I bet you are also a regular on SGROC heh.

    And also, just a side note, although I only buy 2nd hand cameras and lens, I can never bring myself to buy a 2nd hand watch be Rolex or PAM. Maybe its the simple fact that I have to use it everyday close to my skin ")

    I'm on the horology forums as well but I thought it would be nice to find a few photographers who happen to like Panerais as well.

    We all have our commitments. If you really like one, can hun for a pre-owned piece. Pre-owned Panerai base models go for about $5k and they hold their value relatively well.

    I don't have large wrist so I usually go for 42mm or 44mm. That's probably the biggest I will go for. Price for Panerai varies and depends largely on case material, functions(complications) and if its a limited edition. Stainless steel base models start from around $6k. The tourbillon models will go beyond $150k. Yes, I'm on sg-roc too.

    Let's take it as an indirect compliment of your slender wrist.

    I was interested a couple of years ago but decided against it as given the price, it is unlikely that I would want to take it apart and explore the movements. I like to tinker with things.

    nice watch Panerai's a no nonsense brand that really emphasizes on mechanical beauty and of course, durability.

    an upcoming brand every watch lover should watch out is Obris Morgan

    That is a nice watch you have there Kit.

    I looked at Panerai before. Very nice watches, just too expensive for me to afford.
