Panerai Will Come Back

Iíve worn mostly Rolex for 30+ years and over the past few months picked up two newish Panerai (1392 & 524) and so far am thrilled with them. Itís different and customizable. The pin system is really cool, and the aesthetic is a bit old fashioned. I love the sandwich dials which are polar opposite to the precision layout of my current GMT and Exp 2. The value proposition on the used market now is huge IMHO.

I canít walk through an airport each week without seeing dozens of Subs/GMTs, and most online posts re Rolex are about ďshould I buy this, will the value go upĒ, removing scratches, hoarding, and storing in safes. And people actually buy watches they donít want just to buy whatever is ďhotĒ right now?! Iíve never paid above retail for a new Rolex and never will.

I buy things to enjoy and wear, watches to me are a tool, not an investment.
Iím ok being a contrarian and enjoying some Panerai right now.
