Oh, two Rolex without a doubt. That’s special. The zenith is great but not special (that’s according to my random quality calibrator) :thumbup:

100%. Only one of these is INCREDIBLE. Sublime sophistication, oh my.....the Tonda PF is an absolute swoon of a watch.

For what it's worth, for mine this makes Royal Oak, Nautilus, Overseas look downright 'oaf-ish'.

Since the new version came out I’ve not been able to stop thinking about the Navi panda!

The Zenith ...

The dial is much nicer on the Defy and the lugs/shoulders on the PF remind me of the £100 integrated Citizen watches in F Hinds.
Oh, and PF need to bevel those indices more, too flat ... have I ever mentioned to you that I like chamfers and bezels? :lol:

I do however, appreciate their nod to Oris with the bezel. :thumbup:

Tried it on when I picked up my Top Time X Deus.. its very nice if a little busy, very well finished and pops on the wrist. But, I have 2 other Pandas and I'm selling one of those (Harrods Autavia).

The Harrods Autavia is nice but I think maybe the bezel seems a little oversized for the size of the overall watch. I have the Tudor Black Bay Harrods though & love it.

I prefer the zenith but still think the laureato is the nicer integrated jobbie if I am honest
Cheers now, Paul

^^^ Guy, Lindsey, Chris - you are clearly forumites of good taste. :thumbup: :)

Ryan, Paul - I thought you were my friends! :lol: :)

I do need to try on a couple of PF Tonda models. I was impressed when I tried on PF watches at an event a few years ago. Only 30m WR, so ruled them out.

The Zenith and PF that I posted are both new releases of 36mm. The Zenith also comes with a matching colour rubber strap.

I am in London on the 20th - an AD visit beckons before meeting friends for drinks and dinner.

Although the AD may not let me in, as my regular drinking in London watch is the Dartmouth.

If the AD doesn’t let you remind him that your forum friends have got your back :aufsmaul: :lol:

Yes indeed! And from all the way over here too! Apparently I can do a 'look' :) I learned it from my daughter....

I suspect also that any AD worth their salt will understand that fancy watches and London can have a certain risk, as I understand it anyway.
Fortunately this has not spread to Sydney....yet.

It's probably just as well there is no-one selling PF in Sydney at present. Could get expensive.

Just to juice it up, here's the other side :)
I don't think I've seen anything quite like this presentation. PR on the flip side here, which suits the watch.
For me this is GS's best piece....ever, Kodo not withstanding.
