I find this piece hard to take a middle position on, unless one isn’t sure yet.

Thank you 🙏🏼. I felt this would have been so nice in a 1940s case without the crown guard!

I still wonder what motivated the destro decision on this one. C’est la vie.

I like it too. It’s different. Agreed on the RH version. I will wait for it.

I have nothing against Panerai,

I just can't stand that what I consider to be an ugly-ass crown guard. Remove that and for me it would be perfect.

I admit that I’ve developed more of a liking for Radiomirs over the years...

but I still think the crown guard is cool and defining.

Are you sure that isn’t Patrick Swayze ...

They both indeed do have a clear identity...

Absolutely, I totally appreciate it as that...

and also aesthetically. But this particular dial in a 1940 case would have been more intriguing overall IMHO...but it wouldn’t have the destro feature that I find equally intriguing.

Aaah, yes, ala 6154?

Thank you for adding that picture and reference number.

They might have considered...

a DLC or composite case, it would have had a nice...cappuccino...effect. Just go on enjoying it too much!!!

Well, I for one, love it!

Looks like a guy was putting texture on his ceiling and sprayed his watch instead.

Note to self. Never take the crystal off your watch when painting.

😂 That was actually also said the first time I posted...

and it’s very true! Ever since then, when looking at it closely and noticing the texture and monotone color, I can only see it as how you describe. It’s the uniqueness of the dial that keeps me intrigued
