Incoming....

First incoming of the year. Should arrive in the morning! Spent a bunch of time debating between a JLC Universal Time and a VC QDL. Went to the boutiques to try them on one more time before making a decision. Decided to stop by the Panerai boutique next door and fell in love with this piece.

Another great deal from Dan Dubinsky. 8th watch deal with him in the last 18 months..

Pictures to follow once it arrives!

Congrats in advance!

When one can't decide between two watches, it usually means neither (unless the answer is "both" ).

It's here. The DUE 674.
This piece has been a topic of debate among the traditionalists for it's lack of water resistance. Since I don't do any diving and I never go swimming with a watch on, it was the perfect Panerai for me. I always loved the 1950 case design, but not the bulk that accompanied it. The sunburst dial and slim profile just did it for me.
