    Hey Carl,

    What’s wrong? Hate to see you leave or should I say hate to see you participate less in this group or brand. I am not very persuasive but I will try to express my opinion.

    I think you jumped in too fast too furious. Initially, you bought 562 which is an excellent entry level base model watch. Within one or two months, you had gotten 424, 721, 720 and 673. All these are “killer” models which are hard to get.

    If you need to let some go and I be you, I will sell off those non special edition models like the 562 and 424. Perhaps sell either 720 or 721. These 2 are too similar. As a Paneristi, you should keep an array of different range of Panerai watch like a Submersible, Radiomir, Luminor plus those 1940/1950 case watches. A balance of Bettarini and Luminor 1950 case, Radiomir and the Radiomir 1940 and lastly you should have a submersible like a 364 in 47MM or just get a simple 24 or 243 as these two are 44 MM.

    Of course, likes and taste are very subjective and you have to decide what you like and do with your watches. Hope you find the balance in watches and lifestyle.

I would hate to see you leave this unique watch community. I must admit that my insistance for you to participate in my other thread was to have your input, of course, and also to try to revive your interest for the brand. I am happy to see that the 44mm draw your attention, and I hope to see an incoming in the near future.

    I must admit that my participation in the other thread did pique my interest somewhat!

    Thank You very much for your interest and concern! I have already traded my 720 and sold my 562. I am in the process of initiating sale of my 673 and 424. I momentarily considered trading the 673 and 424 for a 249 which would leave me with the 721 and 249. I need to have a combination of history and aesthetics in the watches. No matter how much I might be impressed with the history, if I don't think I will appreciate the aesthetics of the watch, I won't get it. The Submersible, with exception of perhaps the bronze models, are not appealing to me. Although I sometimes miss my 562 (I see it on the wrist of a good friend who I sold it to, and is a server at my favorite restaurant), the Radiomir is more my style.

    Admittedly, I did get into Panerai very rapidly. I started with the 562, then wanting a Radiomir as well, I decided on a 424. As far as the 721, 673 and 720 are concerned, they are pretty difficult to obtain, even more so for someone like me who will normally not buy pre-owned unless I can first see the watch and deal with seller face-to-face. The 721 and 673 showed up at the local boutique, side-by-side in the same display when I went in one day. As did the 720. Thinking I might not get a chance at those models again, I jumped right in.

    Well, that's my story. And to add to that I have always been very impulsive. It seems like I will stick to my plan, possibly still keeping the 721. No real regrets. I can still admire and appreciate the brand and live vicariously through you guys!

    Cheers,
    Carl

    Like you Carl my love for makes waxes and wains, I used to be a Rolex fan boy, and I still am to a lesser extent, but have been put off by the games they are playing with their long term customers, and they have seen the last of my £££’s.

    However this watch will never be far from my heart, or my wrist.

    My only word of caution to you is to sell off quickly leads to long term regrets when you realise what you have lost.

    mounted on one of me favourite canvas and it’s a brown one. Picture taken in low lights due to the torrential rain and also, the watch is now on low batt!





    Also, I set up a new XS MAX yesterday. Gotta love this wallpaper.
