Congrats and great start!

Glad to see someone who deviated from the usual base models and opted for a model with 'complications' as their first PAM!

A good choice for a first Panerai. I agree that the base models don't offer much.

No real life use for the Chrono function but it is interesting to activate n watch it go..
Glad that I got it..luv the vintage look plus the Chrono pushers make it look different from the normal base models.
