Bars & Dots
Ciao everybody! I trust that you all are having a great week! Its been awhile since I added anything to my humble collection of the family of watches that stems from its early days as suppliers to the Regia Marina. With this latest addition, I return bac...

And im sure you'll agree, one shot that is very much me indeed? Ciao Stephen

Nope i am Indonesian
Tapi sama sama yah ;) I wont know KL that much, and i get my PAMS from Singapore these days! Ciao Stephen
Great to know that you have good connections with the Singapore boutique.
Congratulations! And a question...:
Your pics indicate that right in the center of the dial the hole for the hands looks a little too big, so that the lume of the lower dial shines through... or is it an optical illusion? The last 2 large photos of the 449s face show best what I mean, on th...
Hallo Henrik, Guten tag! And as for your question, I get what you mean. Although it may seem that the lume of the lower dial might shine through there, the ecru-coloured portion that could be seen from the hole is NOT superluminova, therefore no light wil...
Fantastic and a hearty and warm congrats to you :)
Had it not been boutique only I may shared your joy :) Wear it in good health and may it bring you much joy pleasure and happiness Sincere congrats again and so nice that a fantasy is fulfilled Best my friend Imran :)
Despite there not being a London boutique
I think you should hope for the best! Remember, if you really really wish for something, it'll be good if you act as if you already own it! Thanks my friend, and i will enjoy it in good health! Stephen
Hi, Stephen, I am extremely happy to see that you have received your 449, as I know how much you have been eager to get it! The strap, the bubbles, and the celebration are only but a taste of all the great memories you shall build with your newest catch. ...
You always speak so kindly mio amico!
Ciao my friend! Indeed this past year since SIHH 2012 has been a long one, with many ups and downs, but to wrap up the year before the new one gets in, with this baby is beyond blessed. I am still busy now, especially with the year end coming in, but i tr...
huge congrats BluNotte..
and I love love love the Metal Gear Solid reference!!! LOL! Congrats on one of the new modern icons in the Panerai family! Well done Stephen!
Phil, I wasnt sure if there are many here who would get it, you're the absolute first, and i am happy! Thank you my friend! I could not have agreed more! How's the family? Grazie mille! Ciao Stephen
All 7 are mine Anths
I always reserve them as stocks, since all my PAMs except the 300 & 341 uses these. I was choosing which one to place on my 449. Grazie mille Anths! Stephen
Long time no hear from you! How have you been? Hope all's well! Grazie! Stephen
Your baby is arrived and your combo fits well. Did you try with a blue veal strap instead of aligator? Enjoy it and wear it in good health. BR, Patrickh
Well, as for that i dont think that OP makes an OEM veal that has the right shade of blue that i want ( bleu nuit), and even if they did, i have this thing for alligator/crocodile ;) Will do! Ciao Stephen
Hi Stephen, Very well written and a wonderful time piece to collect! I am glad you got them, just too busy these days! Cheers! Nien
Hope all is well in Shanghai! Ok, do take care this festive season! Ciao! Stephen
Thanks for your write-up, Stephen,
I love the simplicity of the dial. The case, dial and movement come together so well this time, imo . And I like the idea of the logo on the crown, which I feel, compliments to the design of the 449. Cheers to your new acquisition and wear it in the best ...
Indeed one of the major charm point of this piece is that it's so simple, yet it attracts you into it's depths. Grazie and wishing you all the best this festive season! Ciao Stephen
