    Congrats Heru... the Cali is one of my absolute favourits. Despite the size very comfortable to wear. I think one of the best "heritage" watches. Only thing I dont like is the strap which looks a bit cheap. But thankfully there are plenty of cool straps available for replacement. Great to see them all lined up there ! Here is a pic of mine

    The OEM strap on the 249 and 232 looks fanastic after about 6 months daily wear. It develops a lovely patina.

    I also think ABP straps look great on these historic reproduction pams. Try the special gators out :smile: hubba hubba

    Lovely pics, Ryan! :drooling:

    Are the numerals on the PAM 249 ever so slightly recessed? :thinking:

    Looking at the quoted picture, the "X" does seem to be recessed, kinda like on the "Sandwich" dial, but obviously not quite the same way. Never noticed this before. :loupe:

    Hi Bo, the numbers are luminous material applied on the dial, it looks a bit crooked on the picture because of the domed plexi. Here is a close one of the X
