Some people like me were critical that it was still a Cam driven movement and not a column wheel movement. The pusher feel isn't quite as nice as a column wheel movement. Price is fairly high, there are other beautiful watches to consider at this price. For instance, you could buy the steel version and still have some money left to get a nice Lange & Sohne Ultra Thin! (Just teasing!)
I am considering getting my first all gold watch and this seemed like a great contender. Awesome history, still quite available at retail, and great color in dark green. Def a lot more than steel counterpart but I guess you always pay more for gold. Otherwise, yes def so much more than steel one..
I’ve been watching vids on this.. i’d go with the panda! The green dial while nice may underwhelm in certain lighting conditions..

I’d go with a speedy over a dayto anytime esp with the panda which will also look great on a black leather strap. i;m not a fan of the black rubber strap. Hope you get the panda so i can see more pics of it here. I think it’s a sleeper, the panda.
But I guess I like green and it seems like the fad won’t always last long where green watches won’t always be available. As such, I am inclined to get nice green watches while they available. I feel like panda watches will always be around.
Yes - the amount of money is def a major consideration.

In this market now, I can get a used Master Compressor Geographic - IWC 7 Day Portuguese - and a VC 2nd Gen Overseas Chrono. I guess all that still doesn’t scratch my full gold watch itch, but when you go full gold, you just pay I guess….
