1033 - so nice

I am currently holidaying on the island of Gran Canaria.

Whilst out & about, stumbled across this little Panerai AD.

Just thought Iíd Ďtake a lookí as you do.... to much moaning & groaning from the family tagging along.

ďAhh Dad, not ANOTHER watch shop... ď

ďHereís a few Euroís go and get an ice cream...Iíll be 5 minutes....Ē lol

Have to say I was really taken with a beautiful blue dialled GMT Pam1033

Never seen one in the flesh before.

The sunburst dial was quite something.

I didnít pull the trigger on this visit, but Iím here another week yet so watch this space...lol

It’s a beauty in your wrist...go for it!

Please note, however, that the dial is sunbrushed, not sunburst...there is a marked difference between this blue sunbrushed dial and the old blue sunburst dials...

I'm with the rest of the guys here, its a beautiful watch very nearly bought it myself but after much deliberation I went for the 932 Radiomir.

It's a beautiful blue dial, the crown clasp cover makes it iconic and unmistakably a Pan, and the sandwich dial-lume is awesome in the dark too, .

Negotiate at least 10% from the MRSP, but I say go for it. Notwithstanding not every Panerai boutique has them. My boutique here in jeddah (a city of 3 million people) only got issued 2, which both sold within a month. In order to view the 1033 I had to have sent down from Riyadh a 600 mile journey.

Here is a reminder of what a great watch it is, lying next to my 932 in the boutique, plus a little lume shot.

It's a great watch mate.
