This watch is so hard to take in picture that there are very fe correct pictures of it. 

The " Cali " is certainly one of my favorite Radiomir Wire Lugs. This dial is incredibly beautiful. 

The happy owners among us are lucky! 



the dial is stunning

Something special about the 249

These photos show off the dial, lume, and hand colors well. Nice color combination and vintage look without going overboard. (Not that going overboard would be a problem — you’re wearing a Panerai and the Marina Militare would be there soon to rescue) 😉

Good one, John, and very well said. One of my very favorite modern Panerai. [nt]

I enjoyed my first 249 a lot. But i purchased two at the same time.

 By: Bill : May 8th, 2019-21:24

Superb wrist shots! [nt]

... not easy to photograph.

I was very fortunate to find one in a very great condition and full set about a year ago. I couldn’t let it pass! Lol!!

Cheers! Abrazos mi amigo! Abel

Your Pam 249 looks fabulous on you.

 By: Bill : May 9th, 2019-07:52
I can say I did enjoy the first time round my 249 when we had to order 6 months in advance and hope for an allocation.

I did not set out to buy two but i got on two lists and forgot about one.

Fun story.
