As a long time Rolex nut I have always been curious to the allure of the Panerai watches. I know there is a Rolex link to Panerai way back when but that's about all I know I'm afraid. Quality wise - how do they compare to the Rolex sports watches? Are they a reliable watch? Do they keep their value? They all seem to be about 44mm diameter. But how thick are they? Do they use SuperLuminova? I saw a Luminor Submersible for sale here the other day. I think it was made back in 2004. I was surprised to see it had a tritum dial. Do all their watches have an in-house movement in them these days? They all seem to come on rubber straps which I don't really like. Is it possible to buy one from an AD with a bracelet? I look forward to all your views and opinions on these fine watches.
