Which Panerai did you look at?
Several, but the Luminor 1950 GMT series is one that interests me a lot.
Vinaigre, if it matters to you, the Panerai's are holding their value like few watches in their price range.
Also, if you decide on Hublot, my watch guy may be able to get you a good price. KSC02 & Steve8 have my email. The market for Panerai is very set currently.
Let me know if I can help.
I can't remember is the 1950 GMT a 44mm or 47mm?
I have a pam111 which is 44mm and while big has turned into my wife's everyday watch. The 47mm on the other hand are too big. I had a pam127 until it became too expensive to wear but as much as I loved it, it was always too big on my wrist (and only some shirts went over it which was a pain).
That said, panerai's have such a huge following that resale prices are robust and it's easy to trade/sell out of the watch. If you are looking I would go to paneristi.com and buy one there. Best bang for the buck.
