The brand has lost its appeal to me. A collaboration with Hoodinkee solidifies that position.

I still like the brand and enjoy wearing the few that I have. But I feel like I have the bases covered and don't really feel the need to buy another.

I love Panerai. I’ve only had a few over the years, but they were all top notch and miss having one in the current collection.

It would be exciting if they made a 44mm 372, the watch everyone wants. Well, it would be exciting for hodinkee friends and family.

Same here, although if/when 44mm 1389 variant comes out I'll add it to my collection.

I still love Panerai, have a few, but I wish (among many other items) that they would study their own history. I mean, really, there isn't any historical references out there? WTF?
