    Hello all,

    After visiting my Miami AD and showing them my PAM's want list, this is the only thing they have to offer me within my price range..:lol:

    PAM 00024 Submersible K Series COSC
    PAM 00183 Radiomir Black Seal Manual wind COSC(sandwich dial)
    PAM 00241 Luminor Power Reserve 40mm COSC

    What are your recommendations/choices?? I like them all!!:banana:

    PS- Where on the back of the black seal can you spot The K serial ie. K 00250/1500?? I couldn't find it?:thinking:

    Rgds,:cheers:

    Hi Christopher,

    Nice looking pics! Mmmmmmmm!! Very nice indeed.

    For me it would have to be the PAM 24 had one, flipped it, why? Im a fool, miss it like crazy.

    All the watches that you quote will make you the owner of a beautiful watch.

    I think this is down to the one that grabs hold of your wrist and wont let go.

    honestly i dont really check teh accuracy that often, except the first couple of weeks, but rest assured it is well within COSC specs . very reliable as i wind it every day.
    cant recommend it enough.

    I would flip a coin between the 24 and 183. Both nice! 24 has the advantage of a divers bezel, auto movement, and date feature. 183 has the advantage of sandwich dial and classic thinner case look.

    Pam's tend to polarize me. Some I really love, and some I just can't stand. I won't go into which (so many models), but variety is big with Panerai. In this particular case, I like the Radiomir just a smidge more. The case and sandwich dial are a great combo!

    Sure thing! I don't have a problem letting you test it out for a few days. After that you'll know exactly where you stand regarding the Panerai brand. :thumbsup:

    Jeff might be the strongest Panerai marketing tool on this site :laugh:
