Incoming: My Panerai Radiomir Black Seal PAM00754

Decided to join the Panerai club with my 2018 Radiomir Black Seal 754.

My last one graduated from college so about 6 months ago I started getting back into luxury watches. Now I added the Pannerai and I think its a great addition indeed!

Very cool! I just joined Panerai for the first time also and Am enjoying it immensely. I wish Id tried them on years earlier because I always thought they were too big...but no, they are a great siz and fit.

Beautiful! I saw this one and the 753 when they first arrived at the Boutique. Love the logo dial, the size and low profile on the wrist. Congratulations!

Thanks, I would have preferred without the logo for a bit cleaner look but I'm really happy with it overall.

Read up online about Panerai coming with these entry level 753-754's. I love the 45mm size with the newer in house movement--solid case back but at $4000-ish, I felt like it was a great starter Panerai for me.

Hello Mike, congratulations on a gorgeous watch!

Don't mean to alarm you, but the 12 'o'clock lug "wire" looks unusually far away from the case. Perhaps it's just the angle of the photo, but IMO the strap should very nearly in contact with the case. Changing straps on a Rad takes a bit of patience, but is quickly mastered. If you're not comfortable doing it, please have your dealer check that the set screws are fully engaged with the indents near the ends of the lug "wires". This is only possible if the lug wire is fully inserted into the case holes.
Sorry to be a bother if all's okay.

Thanks for the heads up. I’ll check that in the morning. Excited to see how it wears on the wrist for it’s first day!
