    Harold is brilliant but that is very possibly the best looking Yobokies ever!

    I've been a Paneristi for about 12 years but I also wear Rolex Sub and Omega Seamaster a lot.[​IMG]

    Lots of Panerai guys here. Wow.


    I'm thinking about building a Panerai clone from parts, just because I'm into making stuff. Won't be nearly as awesome as the real thing, but it will be cool to have a watch that I put together myself.

    You guys are really starting to hook me, seriously thinking about trading a guitar or amp for a cool watch.

    English Premier League soccer players favour Rolex. Gentlemen prefer Panerai.

    And JLC folks will say the same about Panerai. Just forget all that noise and buy what you like best.

    Really? Why would a "gentleman" want a watch that can't fit under a shirt sleeve? It's a watch that was designed for commando divers to wear over a wet suit so they could see their watch well enough to time their attacks while essentially riding a torpedo. I've never understood how something that size became a "dress" watch. This is what it was actually made for.

    These days, they are designed to make your wrist heavier and your wallet lighter. :roll

    But seriously, they just look cool as hell. That's why people wear them.

    Yup. Rolex is like buying a blacked out Cadillac Escalade whereas Panerai is like buying a Range Rover.

    Me gusta Panerai, and Rolex too. But me can't afford neither, and probably never will.

    Alas... I have a couple Seiko and an old Tag.
