Incoming , entry level Panerai, maybe thatís what I need

Just got today my new Pam 754. Gotta a tell you that for the comments on the forums , complaining about the snap case, etc . I was wondering what kind of subpar watch I was gonna get. Iíll tell you , I canít see a difference ,quality wise, with other Panerai.
I think all (or almost)my previous Panerai had a sandwich dial, so thatís something I noticed right away. But to me was a refreshing change for my eyes.
Love the onion style crown.

Other thing that helps to make this a keeper is itís value if you ever want a sell. Because I been there, meaning you want a upgrade one of your watches and you sacrifice another for it. Well guess what my speedy and my Pam 754 wonít be first on that list because I canít get too much money on them Lol .
I know for some it might sound pathetic, but others been there. And if I know something about myself itís that every time I donít have a Panerai in my stable , I never feel complete.

So this should put an end to my dilemma.

Love the new boxes , the wooden box actually says Panerai in the out side.
And the extended warranty helps also to ease out any possible concerns

Cheers

Looks great! I have the 753 and couldn’t understand the complaints about the case back either.

Do you mind sharing photos of the new Panerai box? I purchased mine in Jan 19’.

Thanks , yeah I guess they were feeling uneasy about 100m water resistance with a snap case back. Maybe they do scuba diving with their Panerai, I donít know. Sometimes we as WIS get to deep in our own bs. Donít think comments were bad intended , itís just the WIS bro thatís all

Here are the pic of the New box and the 8 year extended warranty sleeve

Congratulations for the new watch, she is beautiful!

I'm interested in buying a Panerai, what do you mean about the "value" why does this Pam has a better resale value?

Thanks bro,
Well
Itís the opposite. What I meant is that because is because this is the 2nd cheapest Panerai in their catalog. So after you use it ; itís value would be even less which in turn will make no sense for me to sell it, because is not worth it. Too little money. Flipping watches Itís a practice I used to do to upgrade other watches, but this watch is probably one of the last ones I would consider selling and therefore a keeper.

Not to say Panerai are not worth it, actually they are, I keep coming back to them because I love them. This is just a new idea to help me keep it because keep buying and selling 2 Panerai a year is not a good business.

45mm rads are plain cool. Enjoy, my friend, that one brings so much variety to the collection it'd be worth it if only for that.

Enjoy! I agree a panerai is necessary for me too. Is it easy to remove those lugs for strap switching. The black plastic pusher is about my skill level lol

Thanks , if you can keep one , I like the classics 372, 557, 422, 424. 47mm are the staple on Panerai, for me this 45mm radiomir will do, itís a good looking watch.

My first Panerai was Pam 320, I still remember it. Nice watch too

Cheers
