    Incoming the PAM005

    Finally!! After an extremely long dry spell, 5 years to be exact (and in time for my birthday), I have a new timepiece to add to my collection, the gorgeous PAM005. The Panerai Luminor Marina has been on my wish list for a while now. Originally it was the PAM111, but my taste in watches has evolved, I now prefer a solid case back on my diver / tool watches, plus that OP logo is to die for!


    The PAM005, like the 000 has been discontinued so I knew it would be a challenge to find it. The newer models for the 005 and the 000 are the 630 and the 632, but they both come with a snap on case back (reducing the WR to 100) and non screw strap bars, so they didn't excite me too much. Thankfully, I managed to source one through my AD. It did take over a month to arrive, but the wait was completely worth it!

    Some quick specs:
    Model number: PAM00005
    Case material: Stainless steel
    Case size: 44mm
    Case back: Screw down


    So far, the watch looks great on my wrist (at least I think so) and the calf skin strap feels soft and very comfortable. I haven't gotten time to test the lume our properly, but will post a pic soon.

    Lovely little piece. The 111 is the gem in my collection. (hope my other watches aren't listening but i think it's my favourite.) They just have a certain beauty and style which springs out no matter which angle you glance at it from. They also go really well with practically any outfit, especially jeans & T. It's the kind of watch that just catches your eye and you find yourself just staring at it like a simpleton.

    (people must think i have real trouble telling the time :) )

    Big congrats. Good choice. Wear it with health and pride.

    Thank you so much! I totally agree with you where you say you keep staring at it. Have been doing it all day long :)

    Congrats! I love the look of Panerai. Those crown guards a really cool. I'd probably be playing with that non-stop. I'm kind of a sucker for little levers like that. Enjoy!

    Congrats!!! I love my 000...never tire of it.

    Curious if it's confirmed that the 000 and 005 are in fact discontinued? I've heard that for years but it appears that a new series eventually makes it into the marketplace. Curious what series your's is...mine is R.

    Beautiful watch! Congratulations on the purchase! I really like Panerai. Slowly working myself through the Rad/Luminor question.
