    Re: What Panerai Are You Wearing Today?

    I've been riding my bike into work over the last couple of weeks and the Seadweller on NATO has been my go-to. Today, I just said "screw it, I miss wearing my PAMs"

    The 88 came with me on the bike

    Here it is, Toshi walnut with butterscotch stitching to pick up the Lume colours on the dial.

    Very thick but pliable, and superbly made as always.
    Very smart indeed. Well done, Clive!

    Cheers,

    Unfortunately, not often! PAM 721, my favorite but seldom worn:









    Happy Friday and HAGWE everyone!

    Gorgeous watch. I am debating between a 720 or 721 as my next Panerai.

    Thanks. At one point, I had both of those. The only difference being the text "Radiomir Panerai" on the 720 dial. I just thought that the 721 with the "Anonimo" dial looks more distinctive. And there is an amazing history behind it, not that there isn't with the 720 as well. If you haven't already done so, it is really worth your time to Google both models and learn more about the history of the original models which they represent. There is also a PAM 249, with a California dial. It has been out of production for a few years but there are still some pre-owned models available.

    Cheers,
    Carl

    Thanks Carl,

    Yes I read the history on the Perescope site...I am conflicted. The anonymous story tugs at both sides of my heart...on one side G Panerai was insistent on not having his logo associated and I respect that. On the other hand the "end user" of the watch...well we all know who they were.

    I did find that the 721 also has "Panerai" etheched under the crystal and the 720 doesn't? Not sure on that but it's a cool detail.

    The last thing I am considering is that they made less 720 I believe.

    Your idea of having both and then getting rid of whichever one you like less might be the best solution...

    I have a 590 and a 380. I just sold my 372...so starting to make room for one, wish I could swing both as well...

    Yes, the 720 was only 500. Funny, I only recently noticed the "Panerai" etching.

    There is also another model, which I am sure you know about: the PAM 249 Radiomir 1936. That has the California dial, based on the 3646. There is an excellent article, also on Perezcope, about an original 3646 on for sale at Sotheby's:
    https://perezcope.com/2019/04/29/vin...6-at-sothebys/

    Just as a side note: I am really glad that you piqued my interest into looking at the history of these again. I am selling some of my Panerai collection, and was on the verge of letting the 721 go as well. Now that I am beginning to get interested once again in the history, I am not so sure.

    Cheers,
    Carl
