Not your average 'Safe Queen'

Since Panerai 'glory days' are behind us (and that's a good thing!) I thought I'd share a couple water pics while I was on vacation last year. After all, we dont see wet Panerai's too often
Natural light only, Manual mode on camera and point 'n' shoot.
No Scuba this time, this was post free-dive.
Hope you like them.

These are truly great shots. A Panerai in its natural habitat = no desk diving

Cheers,
Joe

Great shots! Thanks so much for sharing. I have the 562 model, the titanium sibling to your watch, and it gets lots of time in the water albeit just my pool :). But it's been in the ocean twice in the last 5 years but never got a pic. You have inspired me to get to the ocean more this coming summer. Cheers!

Thanx Rashid. Well, it's not really that complicated to make them. The bigger problem is to figure out the scene. This takes about three beers (per scene, so it gets pretty fun pretty quick)

PAM's are made for water, just enjoy it because they are made like Tanks!

Both are made by Croatian watch strap makers



This 74 Replica was made by https://www.instagram.com/zotanleather/



And this one was made by https://www.instagram.com/diaboliqstraps/, it's a leather strap with canvas upper layer and British flag
