That said, nice looking, under-stated watches. . . not time-pieces by any means but a nice watch


As of last month, Sinola can no longer claim Made in America. I think they are moving towards assembled in America.

Either way, the company is employing locals (500?) to assembling watches along with other products as well.

As Parcival said, these are a fashion watch ( quartz movements) that clearly have a place within the marketplace.

I wish them well.


My wife bought me a Shinola Filson watch, it is a great everyday watch to have. So far really enjoying it.

P, I never knew Filson had a watch brand.

Congrats and I hope you enjoy a great deal.

Congratulations! Makes me nostalgic for my 127 which I should never have sold.

It's a watch that screams out for a Metta Catharina strap (the most understated & cool leather in existence).


Rob and TPE, thanks!

Rob, I would buy that strap in a NY minute but so hard to find. Let me know if you know of a source, please. The suede strap that the watch came with will develop its on patina over time.


Don (tickman@rogers.com) one of the first third party strap makers for Panerais should be able to help you. I think he has some of the leather left.

I am enjoying the resurgence of the Arabic numeral faces. The Roman numerals have gotten boring.

Plus it was making me crazy they used IIII instead of IV for the number 4.


That would be a deal breaker for me.


Well, no Cartier for you! Wink

Nice - I know you were looking at Panerai for a while now. Your watch looks quite similar to my PAM 564 - I enjoy wearing it!


Wine doc, great to see you posting. I trust you are well and I miss our wine dinners in Houston.

I think I will enjoy the PAM 422. I do enjoy my PAM 388 when I wear it.
Rob, Don is sending me my new Metta Catharina strap today. Cool I will send you a picture when I get it.

I can't thank you enough for hooking me up with him. He had issues making the strap to fit the 2016 version PAM 422 but worked through the issues and was great to work with.

Don just ordered some leather from Japan he is excited about. He is going to send me pictures when he receives the leather. I'm always open to a new strap for one of my watches.

Thanks again, Rob!

Glad to be a help! It's such an amazing leather. I"m glad he could come through!

That's the worst and best thing about Panerais, it's so easy to change the straps you end up with a lot of them. I just put a new toad strap on my wife's PAM111 from ABParis. Looks like a toasted mashmallow (creamy white bottom with the tops of the toad bumps grading up to a toasted brown) and it's stunning.
