Ok Panearai peeps, help me out. I dont understand the love for Panerai. I know beauty is subjective, and to each his own, but I dont get it. I want to like them because they're unique, but they seem to be all so similar to one another with only minor variations, and pretty simple to cost so much. I've seen a few in the wild and they just looked odd to me.
What am I missing? Is it the heritage? Some kind of mechanical complexity? Just the design language of the brand? Why do you like Panerai? Maybe you can educate me and change my mind, or maybe it's just not a good fit for me.
And please know I'm not bashing Panerai or trolling to tick anyone off. I'm truly just looking for thoughts of Panerai fans to see what I'm missing. I thought this would be a good place to ask the question.
