Panerai PAM 557. A Classic with a twist.

Oct 01, 2019,09:14 AM

A Destro Classic. 

Disorienting, with its typical crown protector at 9 o' clock, but not less charming than a PAM 372. 

Would it make a great pair with the 372, according to you?

Maybe even more charming, or perhaps interesting, with the left side operations.

I don't think I would add it to my 372, but to have one or the other is well worth it. 2 would be a big cherry! I lust a 662, maybe that one with this Destro would be tops.

So, if you didn't have either a 372 or a 557...

Which one would you choose?

Argh... still the 372 for me.

If I ever add a 662, I would still keep the 372. If I only owned a 662, I might be inclined for the destro. 372 is the best Panerai I have ever owned. If only it had a solid caseback, it would be perfect.

Go for it...

I have never checked on panerai and just started recently reading about them. I am still at the beginning of the info chain. What are the reference movements of panerai? Can anyone give a guidance here ? Thanks a lot. Btw: do you guys read the perezcope&#...

An interesting model is the Dextro even for a right hander...

... as it has a strong connection with the war years Panerai watches and it is very comfortable on the wrist (though a big akward I recognize) with the crown guards at nine. It makes a nice collection piece. The watch is a mirror of a 372, so it has all t...  

If stocks will not run out before I buy one, it will be my first Panerai

Btw, it is confirmed from the factory, it comes indeed with sapphire, unlike what was reported previously - a big plus for my personal taste. All the very best dear friends, Alex

You can toss it and turn it...

in every which directions a 372 or a 372 "derivative" it's just a gorgeous and powerful watch!!

Well said, Sergio. [nt]

But that's a personal choice...

 By: sergio : October 2nd, 2019-07:31
not due to one model being "better looking" than the other

A while ago there was a question regarding plexi vs. sapphire

 By: India Whiskey Charlie : October 3rd, 2019-15:42
I vaguely remember the currently sold 372 comes with sapphire but not the 557? Can someone confirm this?
