    I went to Hamburg this week to trade my DSSD for this gorgeous PAM 312..

    Since the DSSD don't fetch too good prices when they're resold, imho it was a fair even trade... I even got an extra OEM brown croc strap on top of the deal..

    My good friend, Marcus ("oyster" here) went to the AD (Wempe) with me to inspect the PAM 312 that I chose plus another 312 that the AD had ordered from another Wempe branch for me to compare with..

    I want to thank Mr Peter Schweer of Wempe Hamburg for his GREAT service! :thumbsup: :thankyou:

    Here are the pics! I absoluty LOVE this watch! :love: :beardjump:

    WEMPE offers an additional 1-year warranty on top of the 2-year warranty of Panerai... that's the red card you see on this pic:

    I made sure to get ALL, even smallest accessories in the package... here are the stickers:

    I chose to put the 312 on the rubber strap to start with:

    The 312 has excellent lume:

    Well my guess of DateJust II was way off the mark, congratulations Bo, that looks stunning, wear it in the very best of health, looking forward to seeing some more photos when you get the chance.

    The strap collecting bug will hit you shortly if not already

    That's hilarious, Marcus! You had me there! :dummy: :rofl:

    Guys, this is an inside joke...:

    As stated, Wempe got two 312 in for me to inspect, and I found a tiny flaw in the "6" at 11 o'clock (well, where Marcus edited the dead lume spot in :dummy: ), so I went for the perfect example instead. :cheers:

    YES! Bo, welcome to the club 312, now let the strap sickness start! Which edition number out of the 2000 did you end up with? Mine is 126/2000.
