    Reading through the thread again, I counted 4 replies directly in favour of getting the PAM 233:

    Post # 2, 7, 14 and 39

    But 9 replies against doing the trade:

    Post # 3, 15, 16, 18, 20, 24, 33, 41 and 44

    I have not counted the replies / suggestions to flip my Daytona since I don't want to flip that watch.

    The poll results show the opposite! :loupe: :thinking:

    Anyway, at the end of the day, it's my decision what to do...

    I've decided to KEEP my Explorer II and not get the PAM 233!

    I think those pointing out that the nicks and scratches would bug me are spot on. Also, I think I'd regret the trade in the long run.

    Smart decision, Bo. :thumbsup: You know how much I love Panerai watches, and even I thought that was a bad trade.

    Not sure but I'd say around the USD 1,000 mark.

    I'm with Chad, get rid of the daytona, get a 111 or 112, and a speedmaster on bracelet, but, get a leather strap to go with it, also. Another option is to flip the daytona and get a PAM 212, 213, or 250!

    I can certainly understand your wanting to keep the Daytona, Bo. At any rate, I think you made the right call. Sometimes it helps to bounce this stuff off others. :thumbs up:

    Too bad, that dinged up 233 would have looked pretty sweet on your big wrist, such a nice subdued dial and the tops as far as doemd cyrstals go!
