    And the winner is.......00932

    Hello guys,

    After a few weeks of loooong nights of learning,comparing and convincing the better half...it finally happened
    I was daytime dreaming about a Panerai for more than 10years now but the real love came when I've seen this one on Panerai's website.
    And for the first time since I'm into watches my wife agreed that this one is a stunner.
    Sorry for the pics quality.
    I promise better ones soon.
    Hope you'll like it because I know that I do.....in fact I can't take my eyes off of it.....that's pretty dangerous when driving:)

    Beautiful dial, these Panerai blue sunbursts have really got my attention recently since the Equation of Time model was showcased on the forum last week.

    Lovely pickup, well done, maybe don't wear it whilst driving until you can look away from your wrist consistently

    Guys....just skipped a few heart beats when tried to set the exact time and realised that the small second does not stop.....
    Then ...in panic read an article stating that no hack second on P3000 ....back to life
    F..k....almost lost my breath....imagine what was in my mind: sure that the watch is 100% authentic but faulty....:(

    I had a similar experience with my recently acquired 425, which doesnít even have a seconds hand, the minute hand kept slowly drifting when I was waiting to line it up, a long time since I have owned a none hacker!

    Congratulations and welcome to the world of Panerai.

    I went for the same dial a couple of weeks ago in the form of a 1033. Iíve been the same in that I canít take my eyes off it. The colours vary from dark purple to silver depending on the light and angle.

    A couple of grotesque photos of mine.





    And with its 8 day brother.

    Very nice, I'm loving the sunburst blue dials more and more. Considering the smaller 42mm 1028 version, I currently own a 560, and wonder if going for the 42mm auto is a better option.

    I love the blue dial Panerai, I've been really tempted by the 1033 but I just can't get past the "automatic" text on the dial. Don't know why they've added it to a lot of the newer Panerai.

    Just a quick question !
    If I ever scratch that gorgeous crystal is there any chance to polish it?
    Don't even know if it has AR coating on the outside or not...

    There is no external AR, one of the reason that I like Panerai.

    It would be hard to scratch sapphire crystal, I havenít managed to scratch one in 30 years.

    Thanks for that info on AR
    But still.....what if?
    Hairline scratch can be removed?
    I am asking because I always managed to scratch all my watches....including crystal

    I would think if you managed to scratch a sapphire crystal it would need to be replaced you wouldnít get a hair line scratch it would be all or nothing and you would be more likely to chip it than scratch it. A bit like ceramic case.

    1028

    I managed to spend some more time with the blue dial 1028 at WOS on Regants Street over the weekend. Didn't make it to the Panerai boutique unfortunately.

    Love this 42mm variant. Would need to spend a bit more time with it and see what it looks like on leather rather than strap.

    Also need to have a hard think whether to trade up the 560 for it at some point.

    Didn't get a good comparison if the 42mm is smaller (especially lug to lug) than the 44mm 560.
