    Panerai Vs Rolex Submariner

    Not I'm still a bit off with the funds to afford either one.

    I want a good watches pretty badly. I've wanted the rolex submariner for about 5 months now. But I'm starting to weigh it against a Panerai. I think the Panerai is winning but I have wanted the rolex for longer.

    The big thing here is the Panerai is a few thousand cheaper. Maybe a bit less but around there. That would mean I could get it quicker. Also there are less panerai fakes.

    So if I was to buy one new from a dealer which do you think I should get? And which would you get?

    Models are regular black rolex submariner and a regular black faced Panerai with small seconds, possibly power reserve but probably not.

    Well of course there is alot to be said about rolex in terms of safe bet of stashing money into a physical investment you can wear. They are never going away and will always be desirable. Panerai over the last 10-15 years has been right there too. Despite the hopes of some they are also great investments. Some feel the classic size of the Rolex will win out and big watches are a fad. I personally dont think so and feel the 42+ size is what I want in a multi thousand dollar watch. I love the looks, pics, history of Rolex but I dont like them on the wrist. To me they are just on the edge of being too small and the bracelet taper to 18 is infuriating. The new supercases are a great step IMO but I cant pay that much. Someday I will have a classic GMT but my Panerais are being loved now

    The biggest piece of advise I can give to you is to wait and get the watch that you really want. Don't just buy the one you can get sooner or now as you will simply end up still wanting the other.

    Keep in mind that unless you are getting a Panerai with the in-house movement they are all made by ETA as opposed to Rolex's COSC in-house movements. A Rolex also might hold it's value better in the long run but honestly that doesn't bother me, I would rather have the watch that I am happy with and not worry about the value holding.

    I prefer the Panerai as they are more rare and you kind of have to know a fair bit about watches to even know about them as opposed to Rolex in which 80% the people on the planet know of.

    I'd go for a Submariner just cause of the size which is better for smaller wrists.

    A couple questions: why are all your words on your 'signature' thingy all capital? o_O
    and why do you put the straps you own on there? i LOL'd the first time I saw that
    why do you start new threads everyday?
    Not trying to sound intrusive at all, even though I know I am. I've just been wanting to say it for a while

    I like other peoples opinions when weighing my own. It's a bit annoying I know, at least I don't start threads about showing off the same watch. :P

    And thanks for reminding me, have to update strap list. :D

    And do you mean the title? If so, it's just a habit.

    Just wandering:
    Why do you start your sentences with a small letter?
    Why do you use three colours in your Sig. ?

    I hope you do not mind me asking!
