First day: Panerai 000

Post by Americandave » Thu Jun 23, 2016 8:18 pm

First thing I did was pop on my black gator strap and give it a test drive.

First impression? This is one clean, simple, no frills watch. It feels like an everyday already!

Congrats, one of the best PAMs IMO. I'm still on the fence about grabbing a new one before they disappear. I've got a bunch of straps from my old 111 sitting here doing nothing :shrug:

I like that one. Probably 44mm and hence too big for me.

It wears right in 44 - I owned a 42 but just couldn't get used to it, it was smaller than suited the design

I used to think I'd never own a manual wind because it was Tok much hassle.

That number in the background shows how my current view compares:

Nice. Have two base models. This model is being discontinued and both logo models being replaced with new inhouse snap back models with fixed bezel.

If you can get the current models with ETA movement. grab now

Congrats! A timeless classic, and definitely a keeper. Something about that case design, looks awesome on any wrist.

Very nice!! I miss mine - come to think of it, I've owned two 000's, a 111, a 112, two 025's and either one or two 024's lol... And I miss them all :crybaby:

There's something special about the 000 - like you said, an everyday piece

Congrats! :cheers:
