    The 232 is a true beauty...


    My 249 is the Radiomir of choice today. Thanks for letting me have it back Mick ;-)

    Back on my bullshit with a PAM001, C-Series. It was the Luminor/Marina that first got me into watches twenty years ago, so it's nice to have one of that kind of vintage back in the box.

    A good classic example there looks great.
    Had a look through my old Panerai pics this evening and thought it would be rude not to post a couple of gratuitous pics
    My first two, 000 and 243

    [QUOTE=Fredamens;6306397]Some amazing watches over the last few days

    Indeed, in fact this now gigantic thread has reignited my passion for the brand. It was the very first nice watch I ever bought myself - from Selfridges back in 2005 when the Panerai section was a small display case right next to one of the entrances to the store, before the Wonder room existed.
    It was a Pam 119 40mm with a blue face which my son had always lusted after so I got it serviced and polished and gave it to him many years later for his 18th birthday. Iím very satisfied that heís worn it every day since.
    Iíve been on the look out for older Pams and bought a 232 earlier this week, largely after having looked at pictures and reviews from members here. At 47mm I thought it would be too big for my 7 inch wrist, based on having tried on luminors of the same size, but it doesnít seem to look too ridiculous. I suspect the wire lugs make all the difference. Now Iím on the hunt for a 000 and a 111 with a painted dial.
    Hereís a quick pic in the taxi on the way back to the train station:

    Do any of you have experience of buying from the Panerai online store?
    Specifically regarding a discount or extra straps etc.
    Interested to hear any experiences. I'm currently looking at something which is available online only.

    Iíve bought from boutiques before and have always managed to get at least one extra strap thrown into the deal.

    Best thing to would be to ring them and talk about the reference you are interested in. If you donít ask you donít get.

    I've bought previously from Berry's etc and had discount and straps etc.
    Currently looking at the 1087 which is an 'online exclusive'
    I've been in touch with the 'concierge' and was basically told no discount.
    I'm currently waiting to a response with my request for an extra strap.
    Was hoping someone here had previous online buying experience

    Panerai have got back to me and won't offer another 'free' strap but would include a Panerai branded gadget as a benefit.

    Half a result then. Maybe give it a few days and see if they ring you back. Let them chase you. Month end next week. Might not make a difference but year end next month will.

    Good call, I'm in no particular rush and also considering a white dial IWC Mark XX.
    I'm looking for a white dial but a curve ball was thrown earlier today when I tried the cream dial 1350 Radiomir Tre Giorni, somewhat smitten

    Got to stop in the Venice Italy Panerai store today. It is very small but had quite a few watches. The salesman was very friendly and helpful for anyone thinking of going.
    Sorry no pics.

    Bought this 232 recently



    And then this 190 came up a few days later



    I thought they might be too similar so intended to let one go but in the flesh they look and wear very differently Ö so keeping both

    It was reading your brilliant review Kerry - along with a few others online - that made me interested in these radiomirs in the first place actually. I knew I wanted a 190 for all the reasons in your thread, but I came across a 232 first. Really happy with both of them. The brown dial and the gold hands on the 232 just stunning IMO.

    As an aspiring Panerai owner what good resources should I be reading? For example Iím struggling to find the difference between the Radiomir https://www.goldsmiths.co.uk/Panerai...335/p/17650585Origine and the Radiomir https://www.goldsmiths.co.uk/Panerai...383/p/17650662Officine
    Ö other than )2k!

    So those watches look very similar! They have the same movements even. I couldnít work it out so I called Panerai in London and they said the two watches have a different case finishing and different dial - the 383 has a fully polished SS case with a sunburst dial and the 335 has a brushed SS case with a gradient dial. The 335 also differs apparently in that itís a reproduction of an older historical 45mm Radiomir in their past catalogue. But thatís it.
    Iím really into Panerai watches but like a lot of other people, I prefer the older models, if you wanted some reading material about their pre-Vendome days in the mid to late í90ís and some of the classic watches they were making in the early to mid 2000ís then the following are reasonably good starting points:

    https://www.ablogtowatch.com/jose-pe...nerai-watches/

    https://www.fratellowatches.com/buyi...he-1990s/#gref

    https://www.fratellowatches.com/buyi...he-2000s/#gref

    Thereís also all the Perezcope website stuff about dodgy vintage watches at auction and the íscandalí of cheap movements in expensive models from a few years ago but that might just put you off!
