Any thoughts on the Pam 796?

Nov 23, 2018,00:48 AM

I've been waiting for an iteration of the p5000 movement with a PR indicator on the back. My only hesitation is the blue font for "8 days" on the dial.

What do you think?

the touch of blue is interesting.

For me it's just another modern Panerai.....

and, as such, for me it falls into the category: like it, don't like it. If you do you buy, if you don't you leave it in the shop.

Interesting.. an alternative to my favorite

Panerai movement...the original 2002/9. Dawned on my favorite panerai 368; but also in the 346... the power reserve indicator is executed more like the “Original-original” JLC movement in the panerai 190/197. I absolutely love this implementation of 8 day...  

The 368 is 47mm and too big for me

While I don't like the date window on the 346 The 796 is the first one that fits my requirements. I'm close to pulling the trigger!

Gotcha... yeah the 47mm is larger but it’s destro.

I see the 796 is 44mm destro so this will help with comfort as well. Good luck! I love the PR indicator on back. The 190 is a 45mm radiomir with no date. Darron

Ah yessssss...

Had my sights on the Pam 190 but it's hard to find and a little out of my price range. Perhaps some day...

As with respect to to the blue text..

It is a similar design element to the newer panerai with blue small seconds hands... personal preference;

Go for looks Great front and Back

And because of the size it will be more comfortable and easier to don’t get any scratches. Very Warmest Regards Mike

Hi; did you purchase this watch?

I forgot about this reference and tried to find something like the 368. I came across this post and realize we discussed it...Also found the 797. But that has indicator on the front.

I did!
