    I nabbed Chad's PAM 221 when he wasn't looking. This is my "new to me" Panerai 221.

    I was going to take a few nice pics with the Nikon, but it's not working all of the sudden. Sorry for the crappy iPhone pics. :banghead:

    NICE WATCH, I still can't believe you got rid of your LV. Are there some strap options in your future?

    Thanks, Tim! Strap options? Of course! What would a Panerai be without strap options! :thumbsup:

    Congratulations, Jeff! Great that you went ahead and did as you pleased.
    The PAM 221, a bit unusual with the combination of stainless and titanium on the bracelet. Does that go for the case/bezel as well? Once the watch starts to age a bit, it should get a wonderful patina to it!
    The bracelet looks great, and the way it closes is neat and tidy, too. The Panerai bracelets seem to be some of the best ones out there.
    I have been looking at the Panerais also, the PAM 176 in particular, since I saw one. Just the watch, with the lug holes, for tinkering with.
    Enjoy!

    Cheers,
    Carl

    That would be the PAM for me. I first saw this steel bracelet on a different PAM (the "chrono" version) with the VP of a company in Phoenix last summer. It looked awesome -- on him, due to his big wrists. I'm still afraid this PAM would not fit on my wrist.

    Kind of interesting, but due to my Rolex Sub I've developed an interest for steel/Ti bracelets. The Breitling EM-1 with Ti bracelet would also be high on my wishlist.
