What is your favorite “blue” Panerai

Getting the itch for something blue. Looking at the JLC Polaris, Cartier Santos, maybe a Blancpain FF in blue…

But Panerai was my first “real watch” and I’d likely be moving my 000 for this.

So what’s your fave Panerai with a blue face?

You can buy any PAM with black dial and fit with blue straps.
That is the beauty of PAM, the straps will outshine the watch. You can change the straps for as little as $50 or as much as $1,000 and boom, you have a whole new watch, the only watch in the world.

You just knew I'd show up

This is by far my favorite blue dial of any brand, ref 690.

The dial is a rich sunburst blue that changes depending in light conditions.

No filter used in any of these pictures.IMG_20191115_150013_844.jpg20190913_121628.jpg20180904_095149.jpg20180324_161423.jpg20180323_101544.jpg

Give PAM credit on their blue dials - they're better than most....

Probably shooting myself in the foot here -- I tried the Pam 00728 on at a boutique and I was floored.... Thin, the golden hands, the mixed finish titanium case....

If only it were 100m WR, I'd have bought it on the spot.

All that said, it is still my favourite PAM.

I think it’s perfect. Love the blue. Love the view back case showing the movement.

Had a 932 and it didn't scratch the itch for the one.

Had a 690 and it didn't measure up against the one.

The one... the 670





Did you mention a Fifty Fathoms? ;)
