My First Panerai - Radiomir PAM210

I thought long and hard and did a lot of research before choosing this piece, which for me probably best represents Panarai's great history. I also much prefer the Radiomir case to the Luminor, even if it isn't as "iconic" today. It's a really comfortable watch to wear, fits me well for a 45mm, and I'm really enjoying the change of pace which a two hander offers. It's a 2009 model and I don't know much about its history, but it's in excellent shape and looks solid on my Timegrapher (+6 s/d, nice even lines), so very happy with this purchase. I did think about the more modern 610, but wanted a sandwich dial, and the ease of servicing (and better looks in my opinion) of the ETA/Unitas 6497 movement over the in-house version appealed to me. I also enjoy winding my watches so an eight day power reserve on the newer watch is actually a drawback for me!

I've already bought a couple of (cheap) straps ... now considering at least one good quality hand made one.

Amazing pics!

You really hit it out of the park with your first PAM. The 210 is a classic modern Rad.

C'mon. Everyone knows it is the 232! That's why I sold my 210.

Ah yes, very nice, but not quite the watch for me (a bit big, no display back, expensive!).

Such a great watch! It's the next one on my list, as I had to get the base logo first

The lume is brilliant on this watch, bright, yet also genuinely lasting all night, a first for me to experience.
