PAM 289 ....a dream ?

WOW !!...this was the first word that came into my mind when I first saw this beautifull rose gold Panerai with inhouse P.2002 movement. I had it briefly on my wrist at my AD and the nice brown-greyish dial matched perfectly with the satin gold case and polished bezel! a real stunner! I tried to get it out of my mind as quick as possible but it just didn't want to get out of my imagination. In the meanwhile I sold my beloved IWC Perpetual, with tears in my eyes as I liked it very much but I mostly wasn't dressed properly to wear the watch enough, no need to keep a beautifull piece in the vault....so I sold it, together with the Panerai 213 rattrapante, also a nice watch but not 100% my idea of what a Pam should look like! Funds would be no problem for the 289, but helas I also have the Rolex DS waiting for me ! so likely another favourite of my will have to leave the house to acquire this 'goldy' !! Most Paneristi seem to like this watch a lot according to a little poll I had , and I can imagine why !! I'll give it some thought on what I should do with it.....buying or passing !! LOL !! I think I know the answer allready .....

IWC's Ceramic Pilot Watch

Surely that black watches aren't everyone's taste, but I have to admit this hated or love it 'Top Gun' is much better looking in real than on a picture! with 44mm a perfect size for me, quiet light weight compared to steel versions. I would have preferred a wider buckle at 20mm instead of 18 but at least it's a problem that I can solve by putting an other strap on it...
