Shortlist determined: PAM 111 or PAM 512

Any additional comments welcomed from past or present owners !
I personally would go with the 111, which is pretty similar to my 510 bar the sandwich dial and non in house ETA movement of the 111. Apologies for the gratuitous piture of mine below.

Really depends whether you want a Luminor or Radiomir I think.I prefer the classic Luminor look, crown guard and all.

This is my 560, the pic doesn’t do it justice as there are no case scratches, just needed a wipe Image

Thankyou for all the feedback on Panerai!

My decision was based on dial (clean and classic) as well as case size. Offer accepted yesterday and arrived today!

That is a lovely Panerai my friend, like the clean lines of it too.
I'm not really a fan of the Panerai but that looks very cool.

Congratulations Lance. :thumbup:

I have tried on a dozen or so Panerai over the years. The one that I have come closest to buying has remained a 512. A great choice.

The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.

Top notch and congratulations, Lance.

It's great when research, consideration, decision making and result come together smoothly and in good time.

Please! That would be extremely helpful. Minimal eBay and Amazon selection in a Long 22mm/20mm strap. Looking like I’ll have to order one of the nice ones from Aaron Bespoke straps out of Montreal.
