    So do I. It has superb, clean lines, and yet there is the fantastic movement! What an excellent choice, Bo!!!

    I look forward to your future observations on that beauty. It looks great on your wrists. Is there a Martini Shot on the way? I hope so!

    Looks great Bo! Especially on the leather strap.

    Gotta love the way Panerai package their watches.

    I normally check it daily against an atomic clock (for instance wwp.greenwichmeantime.com at the same time every day..

    Another method that I use is to only check it once every 7 days and then divide the seconds gained or lost by 7 to get an average daily variation..

    Bo, it's the third we need a wrist shot of your 312. This is my favorite day each month for a wrist shot, so here is one from a few minutes ago.

    Oh, btw.... some timing results:

    Wednesday, 09-30 @ 2200 hours: 0 seconds +/- (reset it at that time)
    Thursday, 10-01 @ 2200 hours: 0 seconds +/- (!)
    Friday, 10-02 @ 2200 hours: + 1 seconds
    Saturday, 10-03 @ 2200 hours: + 2 seconds

    Now, Sunday 10-04 @ 1250 hours: + 1.5 seconds

    That's plus 1.5 seconds in 3½ days or an average of 0.42 seconds plus per day! :thumbsup:
