Just detected on Monochrome: PAM 977 and 978. What do you think?

Mar 14, 2019,14:10 PM

Panerai Luminor Marina with Metal Bracelet and New Silver-Coloured Dial - PAM00977 (42mm) and PAM00978 (44mm).

I just detected this pic on Monochrome and think, this a really fascinating iteration.

What do you think? 😊

Best, Thomas

Just when you think Panerai can't sink any lower...

they produce new depth rating record

I have to see

it in flesh but don’t find it that bad. Cheers, Thomas ...  

This might help

before seeing it in flesh ...  

Don’t like it at all. Looks too cheap.

That’s a model, which is not needed for me

without date window and a „magic“ strap out of your magician‘s hat? 😊 Yes, it‘s „special“, bu I think, we should give it a chance and test it in flesh. For sure not a 721 😍🤪 but...

On the

picture I have to agree. But perhaps in reality...? Without this window the dial would look much better. That’s for sure. Best, Thomas

On a like/don't like level....

I'm not crazy about it. As a Panerai, it's way out of my taste range. It falls under the category: do they make it because somebody will buy it or somebody will buy it because they made it?

Not sure

 By: MTR : March 14th, 2019-22:37
at the moment what I feel and think about it. A new way. That’s for sure. ☺️ Ciao, Thomas

There's a few aspects I like such as the dial and the numerals.

 By: Jay (Eire) : March 14th, 2019-19:12
Remove the date and sub seconds and perhaps it's a nice package. I was never a bracelet can't for PAMs and so that I can't live with.

+1 for the date window

 By: MTR : March 14th, 2019-22:40
The subdial bothers me less. And yes, we should see it with an “Ahoi-strap”. ☺️ Best, Thomas

TBH, not my style.

 By: zabreg1 Mr White : March 14th, 2019-21:24
Plus, it really bothers me that the 42mm has only 10 ATM depth rating.

WR 100m

 By: MTR : March 14th, 2019-22:44
is not that bad for me. At least a great improvement over the Luminor Due with WR 30m which was/is really ... disturbing. 😎 Best, Thomas


 By: zabreg1 Mr White : March 14th, 2019-23:01
And 100m is plenty, but I find it ruins the ‘diver watch’ credibility. Especially the Luminor series.


 By: MTR : March 14th, 2019-23:52
I think of all the Radiomirs... And even - for example - our beloved Fiddy 127 has „just“ a WR of 10 ATM. But I agree with you: WR 300 would be better. Best, Thomas

personally i like the dial & the color of it...what i don't like, the polished center links.

 By: maverickmahesh : March 15th, 2019-00:50
it is good Panerai is trying to test different things but still staying with what it is known/loved for. Best, mahesh.,

That‘s for sure, my dear friend!

Marketing photo looks nicer than “flesh” photo

 By: darrony : March 15th, 2019-11:15
Applied markers look interesting( not a fan of rest

I hate to be the dissenting opinion but....

 By: shafran : March 15th, 2019-19:07
I like it. I think its great that Panerai can take their dna and be creative. After all, how many would sell if they all look the same?

After seeing the promo picture...

 By: sergio : March 17th, 2019-17:15
I didn't hate it. This morning I saw a "live" picture and found it horrific. You point a gun at my back and say: "Buy it." I would turn smile at you and answer: "Shoot".

Life-prolonging advice...

 By: MTR : March 17th, 2019-17:50
Perhaps to avoid being killed you could answer, „Yes, yes, of course, I will take it immediately!“ and afterwards ... ... sell it, give it away as a gift, lock it away, bury it, destroy it,... 😎 Ciao, Thomas

Totally agree... promo picture

 By: darrony : March 18th, 2019-08:32
Makes it look way better than the Live Photo; I do like the idea of applied numerals if executed with some class

I borrowed a live picture...from

Etrusco_Doc. It reminds me of a Rickenbacker "Frying Pan"... Image obtained from the Net. ...

Not very

 By: MTR : March 18th, 2019-23:40
... tempting. It looks somehow.... cheap (the first pic!! 😁). Have to see it in real life. But for sure not my first choice... Ciao

I thought the promo photos looked okay

 By: traineract : March 18th, 2019-22:49
Not terribly excited but I won't say I hate it. But have to say the live pic from sergio looks really terrible....

That explains why....

 By: sergio : April 4th, 2019-10:41
an awful lot of women I consider..horrible..are married with children

I like....nothing :-)

 By: sergio : April 4th, 2019-16:26
different=better doesn't do it for me.


 By: MTR : April 4th, 2019-18:20
So you have to focus more on the inner qualities of women and watches.... 😊 Ciao, Thomas

Call me weird but I.....

love..balance..like in the Tao. The in and out must match LOLLLL


 By: MTR : April 5th, 2019-15:49
I wonder if the external values are not preferred by a large number of men... Concerning watches of course!!! ☺️ Ciao, Thomas
