    lost interest in the 25 pretty quick...tired of rolex...had too many and bored again...really miss the 212...but so expensive...anyone have thoughts on the PAM 250 DAYLIGHT? I have a good price on one if I want it...not sure if I like it as much as the 212...but, it is cool looking?

    The PAM 250 is a good looking watch. :thumbsup: I tend to prefer the cleaner/simple looking PAMs, but that just my own personal taste. I think that if you you like it and can get a good deal, then you should go for it! :thumbsup:

    I believe a couple of forum members have owned the 312, (Jeff & Bo, and possibly Dave?), and were quite fond of it.

    Good looking watch with an in-house movement known for problems. If you get a PAM 312, make sure it has a warranty.

    I can recommend that watch highly! Actually, it was one of my most accurate watches ever! :thumbsup:

    Gotta love the clean looking dial and 1950 case, too! :rocker:

    Only gripe I had with the watch was that I reacted allergically to the Chromium tanned OEM straps. :banghead:

    I could have just worn the rubber strap on it but I prefer a leather strap on a PAM and couldn't find any suitable, vegetable tanned straps.

    Go for it mate!!! I own a 320 (just like the 312 but GMT and Power reserve in the back) the 1950 case is a real killer on the wrist!!!

    Pam 250, nice looking but I prefer those entry-level pams.

    I personally just don't like the base models (seem to be the only one ;)), may I suggest my personal fave the PAM 351 it looks stunning in real life!
