New Panerai Owner!

Hi everyone, just wanted to share the love as I recently got myself the 560!

To be honest, I had always thought the Panerai was too big of a watch for me to pull of, and I didn't really understand the fascination of the watch with it's big numbers.

After owning the Rolex Explorer II, IWC, and Tudor BB, i figured it's time to try something different!

Well needless to say, this watch is really nice! and it doesn't wear as big as I had thought. I even tried a 42 mm one and that ended up too small to my liking! After reading on the forum and doing research, it was a toss up between the 560 and the 510. I ended up with the 560 because of the "cleaner" look.

Also got a pretty good discount with the local AD. Thanks everyone for the information! Already got myself a nice Mario Paci Strap!

P.S.- The Panerai box packaging is superb!

Nice watch. I've considered trading my 112 for that model as I think 8-day movements are really cool.

I removed the stock strap. The Mario Paci strap is very similar to the stock strap. I liked the blue stitching on the Mario Strap. Here are the photos of the Mario Paci Strap.







Sorry for the crappy photos. hahah

Yes, The 8-day movement was a big plus for me. I find it more convenient than an automatic watch, since I rotate my watches.
