First Panerai

Hi guys! Ive been lurking for a couple weeks here in the Panerai Forum learning about PAMs and trying to decide which one was the best fit for me. Ive been collectig for a few years, flipping and buying etc, but decided to consolidate my collection and only buy special pieces that i wont be flipping ever.

My collection ended up with a SubC, Speedmaster, and an AP Jumbo. and for the last 2 years its been great.

2 weeks ago a friend of mine thats been trying to get me into PAMs for a while loan me his 510 and when i tried it on, i fell in love. I immediately "got it". So for the last 2 weeks ive been reading everything i can and yesterday I finally got my first Panerai, a 312. I already ordered a couple straps from Gunny and they should be here in a few days.

Here are a couple pics of the new PAM. Excuse the quality of the photos.

Yup. Once you put it on, you get it or you don't! Glad you got it.

Thanks everyone. I borrowed an assolutamente strap from a friend and it takes the watch to a whole new level! Amaaazing. Love the look, it's a shame he 312 comes with black croc, I don't think I'll ever wear it.

Looks great! Love the Gunny.

I just re-joined the Pam-damily with a 312 as well. Can't take it off.

I'm *trying* to wear more Brown, so the Jules Verne / Nu-Buck, Brown Gator and in-transit Ammo strap will be good motivation. A speedy affair as I need non-black shoes and belts!
