    Sweet - that's a watch and a half! Phat. The rubber strap is the best, I think. Careful with that bezel...

    Now, after 18 days, it is STILL only 3 seconds fast (that's a mere + 0.16 seconds a day!) :eek: :thumbsup:

    As some of you'd know, the Panerai in-house mvts. are NOT tested by COSC, but tested in-house. The results are then recorded in the booklet that accompanies the watch... blank test result pages in the booklet are then filled out after each timing test at service..

    Like stated before, I got the watch regulated by WEMPE since the booklet showed timekeeping loss in most positions, but evidently this watch is a VERY accurate watch if regulated properly. :thumbsup:

    Bo. huge congrats on your PAM 312...Now that you have tested on the accuracy of the watch, how about the power reserve?

    I have posted previously that my 312 PR stops at 78 hrs 40 mins after fully wound, way beyond 72 hours..now I issue a challenge to your 312 PR to beat mine :lol:

    I don't think that I'll ever get to testing the power reserve of my 312 since I can't seem to get that beauty off the wrist long enough.. :rofl:

    Thanks, Trevor! :cheers:

    It's a very accurate watch, too..

    Since September 30, nearly a month ago, it has gained a total of 3 seconds! That's a daily rate of only + 0,1 seconds a day! :thumbsup: :worship:

    Bo, ok consider it done. I haven't been able to test it because I have not been able to get it off my wrist lol. That's how come I was very conveniently able to test the PR on my AP RO & Milgauss GV twice haha.

    Let me get back to the UAE though, I'm still in South Korea.

    I'm waiting on a wrist shot w/ that sweet brown croc band. Any idea when that band is going to grace the watch? When I was younger I always thought brown bands w/ black dials looked all wrong...but as I've gotten older (and like to think my tastes have matured a bit), I now think the combo looks absolutely amazing and very elegant, yet sporty at the same time. Would love to see pics of this combo on your PAM. :cheers:

    I got a Honey brown OEM strap recently..

    Here are some pics...

    If you mean the light tan "Vintage" strap (pics of it are in the thread above, too), that one's on back order from Panerai... :dunno: when it arrives but my AD promised to contact me as soon as it comes..

    I am also having my OEM black croc strap exchanged for an XL version (same colour etc) since that size just fits me better...
