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.

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 ")

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.

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.

Your arm is too fair and too thin for this type of watch

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

But i'm into IWC keke


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.
