Panerai - PAM01055

 By: Cpt Scarlet : November 5th, 2019-15:02
As we all probably know, Panerai have a rekindled love for the Submersible and the range has been increased further with this new limited edition of 500 pieces. Personally I like it and the “military” colour choice makes sense for Panerai. 
I would have preferred it without the word Automatic on the dial, but manufacturers think that we should like it, so its on the dial. 
What do you think about it ?

I like it very much Captain! And 42 mm us a nice size even...

... if small for the Panerai standard.

Regret it only available through internet purchase.

Cheers! Abel

Yes Abel, 42mm is an interesting size for Panerai [nt]

Yes, I feel it is specially interesting if owner plans to wear it scuba diving. Its compact size is better as it is less subject of being entangled I feel. [nt]

I like it, but I don’t like auto panerai

 By: darrony : November 5th, 2019-15:19
And i definitely do not like the “auto” words

I probably won’t rush to buy one, but I like the choice of color (though it’s not the first green Panerai this year)..The price from what I saw is also affordable, another plus👍Cheers. [nt]

Hi Fab, thank you for your comments...

I still think that Panerai is regaining some of its lost ground In terms of creativity.

42 mm big, which is good for those who are not used to the Panerai world. [nt]

When you start...

playing with colours, who really cares WHAT you are...colouring? You'll always find 500-1000-1500 people in the WORLD that like the colour and will buy the "object" no matter what it is. smile That being said, I do like the olive green they have chosen for the entire..military line. As you all know, by now, I really don't like Subs...lollllllllll

I can only agree on both counts. [nt]

Hi Sergio ...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : November 6th, 2019-00:52
I agree with you about the green that was chosen. It’s very similar to the shade that is on the PP Aquanaut.
Can you elaborate on why you don’t like the Sub ?

I personally find Sub or diving watches....

 By: sergio : November 6th, 2019-03:18
in general, show offi-sh. Instruments for mucho-macho men to strut around in at happy hour time. They justified their useful diving instrument label in diving's early age. Since the appearance of the diving computer, they have become...fashionably....redundant smile IMO of course.

Dive computer, yes. Diving watch, what for?

Personally when I’m diving...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : November 6th, 2019-04:55
I always have a mechanical wristwatch as a backup and secondary timer. 

I had 2 dive computers...

 By: sergio : November 6th, 2019-07:21
one on the wrist, the other on the "console" of the integrated BCD smile No watch

Always like one mechanical solution....

That’s probably why I love our community.

You win [nt]

Haven’t all watches become......

 By: Gaulix : November 6th, 2019-10:55
Fashionably redundant since the onset of the smart watch or cell phone. Time, date, chrono, altimeter, barometer, whatsapp oh and of course email on your watch.........

Not so fast....

 By: sergio : November 6th, 2019-18:51
if you had, I might have let you get away with it. A smart watch IS a watch, so if you choose a SWATCH costing few "bobs" instead of a smart WATCH it comes down to preference not to one having rendered the other obsolete. I don't walk around with the smartphone in my hands at all time, so if I need to look at the time, I prefer the immediate response of a wrist watch to having to extract the "contraption" from whichever pocket I stuffed it in..etc etc smile

It is interesting and seems to work on this Sub.

 By: MichaelC : November 6th, 2019-05:06
I my first thought as a Panerai fan is I would not buy a Sub under 44mm, but maybe the smaller diameter helps with a green dial.  And 42 is a beautiful size, just different for old schoolers.

Hi Michael, good points...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : November 6th, 2019-05:10
42mm is a good size especially with this colour. 

It’s a very good looking pam.

I would have preferred the green lume. The white lume looks too cold. For me it must be >44cm...
