My watch collection has become too big to fit in my signature
Just another example of marketing team running product development with bag full of marketing BS. The newer panerai is using a quick release system for the lug bar. The new QR uses a small spring loaded pusher, seems like a great and fun concept until it seized. Which you will need to replace the entire case because it is integrated into the case. Thats what happen when they tried to improve the old screw in lug bar, which was more than bulletproof.

I loooooove my 2220.80 and prefer it to the 2531 in a vaccum (I dig the applied markers), but I'm honestly considering trading it for a 2531 and making some $$$. The 2500C is a double-edged sword - definitely unique, but more complicated/expensive to service as opposed to the 1120. One thing people seem to forget about the 2220 is that it still is a "real" Bond watch, even though the 2531 is the original.

I just sent my 2531.80 in for service today. New dial, bezel and hands as well. It's gonna look like a brand new watch!
Would it be a good idea to get 2220.80 hands installed instead of the shorter ones? Thoughts?
Since 3 months ago I was hunting for a 2531.80 in the pre-owned market but their prices suddenly rocketed sky high. Was wondering what the hype was all about so suddenly.
I prefer the newer, more pronounced bezel. If only they offered it on a Speedy style bracelet with sword hands...
