    Hi all! I went to my local Panerai AD this evening (see Rolex General Discussion forum), and found one I absolutely love. I thought it was titanium, but according to Paneristi may have actually been steel. It was a Luminor in 40mm with a bracelet & blue dial, no complications. The steel (?), however, had a dark gray cast. It sat very comfortably on the wrist as well.

    Is this a model introduced this year, or otherwise too new for their listing? I didn't see it in the Panerai catalog, either. Anyone with information on it or better yet photos? Its great!!

    PAM 283

    But don't go 40 mm unless you get a steal of a deal!

    I think this watch is no longer produced.

    I am not sure about that.

    BTW, is US$3k a good deal for a 5 month old pre-owned PAM48k (40mm) a good deal? thanks! :thinking:

    That's a neat looking PAM! :thumbsup:

    Dennis: I'd try to get the price down a bit.. 3K isn't an overly good deal imho...

    In the US older 48's are selling for about $3500.
    While I do not think any 40 mm Panerai is a good deal
    if you can get that for 3K I think its quite a deal, I have not
    seen one at that price anywhere yet. If you can get a little more
    off even better!
    If you are buying 40 mm buy it to love it and keep it.
    You will have a HARD time reselling them here in the US at least.
    I had one and it took me 4 mths to find a buyer (had no inquiries
    no matter what the price was, once I found an interested party
    they took it right away)

    That really looks like it, but I don't remember a date window or cyclops. Man, its a great one, I'd love to pick one up!!!

    40mm is as large as my wrist would allow me to go with a PAM, I'm afraid. 44mm is OK, but they are so tall they are a little too big.

    NICE!
    I think that is an AMAZING womans watch!

    I did not want to say that to Paneristis the 40 mm was considered a
    womans watch as some may have gotten upset but it truly is.

    I have MANY guy friends with small wrists like myself who bought a 40 and
    then realized they should have bought a 44 then they end up losing their butt
    on the 40. The 40 I sold went to a female customer, I even had her a custom
    pink band made as a bonus as she was so nice to deal with.

    SSD I have 6.8 in wrists and the 44 feels right at home! You just need to try
    it and wear it for a bit. Perhaps that isn't the model, I just know there
    are not many 40 mm models and even fewer with the blue face. Sorry if
    thats not it :( Due to the how you describe the metal I think it was Ti like
    the one I posted... I am a BIG fan of Ti watches!!!!!

    I would try and not wear a watch for a couple of days before trying on any Panerai Jamie, certainly after sliding off a sub and putting on a PAM they do look overly large and cumbersome, if you can get over that stage they actually seem the perfect size, the only problem you will have is when you change back to your sub it will look and feel too small.

    After thinking and looking at their catalog more carefully, I believe it was indeed a Pam283, in Ti with a matching bracelet. I think me likey a little too much, heeeelp! I think I even like it more that the 210! I also think I'm in trouble.

    I can't believe I'm asking this, but in lieu of the movement, anybody venture a guess at the sticker price vs. pre-owned prices could be? Discounts or other ideas?

    Uh-oh... :blowup:

    Used you can find for about 3500 I think I saw.
    Contact me if you need some help there, I will point you in the right direction.

    New list is 9K but I did not think they made that model anymore???

    The PAM 279 is the one I want!!!
