    I have rolex then panerai then rolex...rolex is perfect...then I miss my panerai...then I love my rolex...I think panerai is overpriced and quality not great...based on 2 models I had... I see that much of rolex is now for ambassadors who hit a little ball around and not real men who actually go out and experience adventure...then I see vintage and history and love it again... Then I look at panerai and love the look and the lack of any ambassador except maybe Mike Horn who seems like an incredible guy...then I read jakes blog about chuck Yeager and a ton of great men...then I see the newer models and ambassadors and think I want another panerai...then I think I'm nuts...and I know I'm nuts anyone else as crazy as me ? Is there any cure??? Seriously what the heck is wrong with me...aaarrrrggggghhhhhhhhh

    Yup, you're nuts, and in good company! No cure.

    BTW, I thankfully don't have the Panerai thing going on, at all. Or Seiko, which seems another affliction on here, which I don't get at all :thinking:

    At least I'm free of both those ailments.

    Just Rolex for me, in terms of obsession, anyway. :crazy:

    I love other makers, like Omega and Heuer, but not so much as the big R.

    I get the attraction for Panerai, and love the look, but I haven't been bitten by the bug to own one yet. Yet.

    But I would concur with Marcus and others...perfectly normal having those sorts of conflicting emotions/passions/thoughts. Just means you're a WIS! :lol:

    I don't own a Panerai but I know how it feels to crave for one. They're beautiful watches. The simplicity of some of their movements is what's holding me back.

    I certainly understand wanting one watch today and lusting after a completely differerent one tomorrow. In quick succession, I've convinced myself I need a Daytona, JLC Master Calendar, new Explorer II, Day-Date, Datejust and a PAM 112. And that's just in the last week. It's a sickness, for sure.

    Only thing wrong with you is that you don't have Omega in the mix. :mixed: What's wrong with you? :rant: :crazy:

    Are you referring to the fact that many models use an ETA movement? If so, just because they're not in-house movements doesn't make them inferior, or simple. These ETA movements are modified and decorated by Panerai. When Panerai's done with them, these movements are more beautiful and more accurate - within COSC specs infact! :thumbsup: Here's the ETA movement in my PAM 183. It's just as accurate as a Rolex movement and it's MUCH more beautiful. Don't let the fact that it's not an in-house movement fool you. :thumbsup:
