The utterly beautiful Pam317 K series

That PVD movement is truly beautiful.

They had just the one in stock and it's not cheap at S$30,800 (GB£17,500 - near enough the same price as home). It really is a sight to behold though.

This might sound a bit dumb but on the wrist, it looks totally badass. It's the sort of watch I'd expect to see Jason Statham or Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson would wear.

My 'Bird goes when I come back to the UK; full service etc., then it's out of the door. Flue not sorted either

Back on topic though, I would mud wrestle my own granny for that 317. I keep trying to imagine what it would look like inside my box next to the 359 and 689............................

I like the way you're thinking... it would surely make for some great and very satisfying diversity within your PAM trio. Maybe more so even than a 372? Passion should always come first, after all, and if you're not (understandably) going for the 533, maybe this one??

Stop right there, young man. I know your game!

What's really worrying is that I have Mrs Van D's approval even though it's more than double the cost of a 372.
