    Actually, it is not upside down. It is just written in Thai Sanskrit. Special Edition Panerai for the Thai market.

    Actually the 221 was my first 44mm Panerai and the only watch I still have left of my former collection that was photographed in Watchtime Magazine. For now it is going to be a keeper. Been wearing it 24/7 pretty much the last 2 weeks, and really like the combination Titanium and SS case/bracelet. Plus the lume stays bright all night long, which is great as the only time source I have in my new bedroom. Think this one will be on my wrist for the long hual.

    My PAM 50 is a C series... it's pretty rough actually. I picked it up at an appropriate price. The bracelet is stretched and the case has been overpolished by who I can only assume was HE-Man himself teehee... The case has lost its sharp edges and is a bit smoother than what Panerai would have made it. But the watch runs great and I'm less worried about hurting it. Also picking it up way below, like way below retail means if it sits there unworn most of the time I don't feel so guilty about not wearing it!

    That's a good way of seeing it, Amanda! I wondered what you were going to do with that Panerai... glad you're keeping and enjoying it! :thumbsup:

    Thanks again Jeff...Really pretty cool!
    On the other hand I find out that only Rolex USA can import watches Rolex. This means that an individual can not so may have to declare it to get to USA. I do not know if you also have to declare a Panerai watch if it value is less than $ 10,000 that is the maximum that can be brought in without declaring values​​.
    A friend told me that and I found it interesting put this at the Forum.
    All the best. I like the PAM 111. And the PAM 113 too.
