"I can resist anything except temptation"

Let’s see; Friday the 13th, wife out of town, birthday less than a week away… what better time than now to trade a few watches for a grail?  I’ve been admiring this one for about 6 months.  To say that I’m thrilled would be an understatement! 

So far, just the candid iPhone photos.  I'll be doing some static shots with my better camera soon.

The education that you and Sergio provide...

is a key ingredient along with some coaching and input from others on this forum and elsewhere. I'm grateful.

Too kind. Enjoy this beauty, my friend. One of the best modern Panerai, the next best thing after the vintage, these Pre V. [nt]

the best time to acquire these pre-v is recent time... many of use had hard time getting the one we wanted.

enjoy it

cheers, Mech

Well, the time was certainly right for me...

Finally! In the late ‘90s I loved the history and the look but thought they were too big for me. And I couldn’t afford them at that time anyway. By the time I realized that I could wear one, they were way too expensive. And that went double for the true vintage pieces! The stars finally aligned and I don’t care if they appreciate from here or not. Sadly, the vintage ones are still out of range and too heavily faked for me to trust. I’ll settle for this one!

I'm not comfortable putting a radium on my wrist LoL [nt]
