Incoming! 47mm Submersible - PAM1389

My 1389 arrived yesterday! Pretty much the perfect combination of specs for a Panerai IMO. 47mm, titanium, ceramic bezel, sub seconds (blue hand), quick change strap system, etc. The Amagnetic part is just icing on the cake. It's awesome!

My 372 wasn't getting much wrist time anymore ... I sold it to DavidSW. I can't say enough good things about how painless he makes the process.

I think I want to pick up another color rubber strap ... too many choices!

It definitely stuck out to me in the Panerai lineup. The new slimmer case pushed me over the edge. Plus, it looks great on rubber and I like having a watch in my collection that is meant to be on rubber.

Besides another rubber strap, could dress it up with some leather ones.

Congratulations. I went back and forth with the 1389 and a 389 and it came down to the fact my AD could not get a 1389 for an extended period of time so I sourced a 389. Great watches an now my summertime wear in the heat and humidity. The rubber straps are amazing and I have OD green, dark blue, orange and the black the watch came on. My 389 also keeps almost perfect time. Lost 1 second in a month. Enjoy.

Looks great. The biggest thing that pushed me over the edge to the 1389 was the reduced case thickness.

Thanks! I have been looking on instagram for strap options. I thought this one looked pretty good ...

I'm a bit late to the party, but congratulations! That is a great watch, and love the small touch of blue on the seconds hand. Just enough to maybe be able to do something with another strap.

Cheers,
Carl

Great watch , i have a 364 and love it but have to admit the bulk gets to me some days. These new thinner cases are tempting.

Thank you! The touch of blue works very well ... definitely icing on the cake.

Thanks! The case thickness was the biggest difference maker for me.

I really wished rubber b would make their straps for the 47mm cases.
They’re blocked (goes all the way to the case) transforms the look imo
