I think they are evolving as a company. The old paneristis of the past might be gone but they are targeting a different type of clientele. I am a newbie rifled through many brands Ap, rolex, iwc, you name it. What they are doing is raising there's price points bringing out exotic material and we as customers get use to paying those prices. Before you can by 3 Paneris for under 20 now you can buy 2 . New customers are use to it. I truly think it's coming back strong.

Rolex is a great brand and as an entrepreneur I really love their business history and how they are actually a charitable organization. I bet 99.9% of the Rolex sheeple dont even know that. With that being said, Panerai is something totally different than anything out there. Panerai has great history and has a great story as well but let's not forget that the MODERN Panerai is only 20+ years old. Also remember Panerai is not TRYING to be all things to all people. It's always going to produce 50-70,000 watches a year and has no intentions of making 700,000 to 1,000,000 like Rolex.

So just stop with all the nonsense. Either buy a Pam and enjoy it or don't.
Couldn't agree with you more, Dan. Very well said

Cheers,
Joe

This is exactly why I am migrating away from Rolex. Even owning the ďhotĒ Rolex models it is a bit too conventional for my style. After 30 years with Rolex ownership I am sick where the brand has gone. Itís certainly not about the watches or owners.
Panerai has always struck a chord with me years ago. Rolex are commodity flippers. I am a enthusiast.

Like wearing a a LaFerrari on the wrist.
