    Beautiful pics and a fantastic watch. I really do regret selling my PAM 050

    Unsure of the reference for the Radiomir though.

    Also they do a MM dial Luminor similar to the 372 - 6xx Again unsure of the reference.

    All the above will be 47mm in size.

    Guess 44mm youíd be looking at an older base model 000.

    Not your average 'Safe Queen' (Panerai content)

    605 is the Firenze edition 372 lookalike with grey dial...it has Luminor Panerai and Firenze written on the dial

    Thereís an even rarer 665 with dark brown dial...

    Edit to add pic



    217-375-665-673-508-382 pictured

    Again guys, can't thank you enough for your positive comments. I'm not a photographer, actually miles from it, i'm using the camera strictly as a thing to keep me busy and for blowing off some steam. So really glad that you like them.

    Well as RAJEN have pointed out, it's a part of Panerai DNA.
    And basically in many cases this means it's pure bullshit (let's be real). But, there is always that 'BUT'.... if we compare the pure thickness of screwed in bar and springbar (not the middle part but the end pin witch goes in the case) it's really Heaven and Earth. By that I mean I've never wobbled my hand with a watch before going in the water (as I do with my all other watches to check if the springbars are in place). I never did that because I know that I will probably break my wrist before one of the screw in bars or thick leather straps breaks. As a diver, I feel secure with it. I don't need to worry for that things.
    BTW, there are some interviews online about Mike Horn (one of the most bad ass explorers out there) who jammed his Sumbersible in a cliff when he almost fell to his death. Strap and that steel bar in watch case has saved his head.
    The watch still lies there btw, It's so jammed in the rock that he couldn't pry it out. Will I need this? No! But do i like it? Yup

    The same thing goes for crown lock system. On every other watch i need to check the crown if it's screwed down. On this? No way. Just a one second look. Love that.

    Well thanks to Nono and those fantastic photos I'm browsing ads for Panerais (like many others by the sounds of it) which were never on my radar till now.

    Beautiful shots.

    Not normally a fan of Panerai, but these shots are just stunning to me, and will make me take a bit more interest in the future.

    Thanks for sharing!

    You sure are giving Tony a run for his money with these photos, and in case you're not familiar with his body of work, he's the sheriff round these parts when it comes to watch photography
