Incoming "sort of"

So I have been looking online at the PAM00687 that will be released soon and deciding how I feel about it. I have been wanting to pick up a Radiomir to go with my 422 and I love the dial on the 687. I am not sure how limited this watch is going to be or what the demand will be but I never have any luck landing hard to get pieces despite spending decent money with my AD. Today I put in a call and to my surprise I was the first to inquire about the watch and with a 20% deposit was able to secure the watch that they say I should get sometime in March! The other thing that is pretty cool is they will order it in with a long strap, this is great news since the standard size strap on my 422 was to short to use. Anyone else going to be getting one of these? I was a little on the fence but now that I know I am getting one I am totally happy and $9800 price tag seems reasonable.

Thank you all for the kind comments. AD is saying March for arrival, not sure how reliable their info is on that. The wait is a new experience for me so I am just going to embrace it and enjoy!

That is a cool watch. Tried one on recently and left very impressed. I never knew that I could like a Radiomir so much.

Awesome!

Many congratulations.

What about the book? please tell more - did it come with the watch? show some more pics - pleeeeese don't make me beg...!



Seriously though, you have a fantastic collection - the 3 Pans look really cool together.

I absolutely love Panerai - how any one can hate on them beats me, they obviously never actually owned one and wore it for a while.
