Great choice! I would have done the same over any Panerai.

Big and bold like a Panerai, but not a Panerai. Glad you found what you wanted.

Sure is.
Got a sudden whack over the head telling me enough sport watches. To get something I can dress up or down when need be.

Very nice! Is that the large? I understand that bracelet/strap changes are pretty easy on that watch.

Gorgeous, but is it normal for the date to be so far off-center?

Looks close to 12 so maybe the date was changing. What model # is this and how big does it wear on the wrist (ie like a 40 or a 42 or a 44 if round dial)? Just trying to get a sense of the wrist prescence. Thanks.

Great.

A Panerai is NOT a dress watch...so good choice!

Ended up with the exact opposite of a Panerai. Enjoy!

Always a soft spot for Cartier, beautiful pick up. Their watches always are stylish.

As much as I love Panerai, I can't deny the classic look of the Cartier.
