Next on the wish list: Panerai!

Wonderful list of timepieces!

Which Panerai you thinking about?

I would like one that is simple and clean. Luminor or Luminor Marina models are very attractive.


Nice choice.

I have really enjoyed my Radiomir.

That's a beautiful watch! I have enough chronographs, and a simple, clean face would be a refreshing change.
Forgot to mention as far as pocket watches go...I have a Waltham pocket watch, no idea of the age, in the process of trying to find the serial number. My great grandfather gave it to me, it has beautiful etching and is cased in silver with a pattern on the back. It still works but Im not sure how good it is at keeping time.

Not sure of its monetary value or reputation...perhaps the more knowledgeable watch lovers here would know? I plan on getting it refurbished and hopefully put it to some use.

Waltham is a relatively well known and well made pocket watch. I believe some of the Waltham watches were railroad (ie accurate) watches. In good condition, I would guess it was worth a few thousand dollars. I don't believe Waltham made more complicated watches (calendars, chronographs, etc) that would increase the price substantially.

Great watch. All this Panerai talk has me thinking twice about selling mine. Smile

W+A,

Are you thinking of getting a different one? Do reputable places allow one to trade in or up? I am a watch virgin pretty much....


Marcb7, you are one of a handful of posters here that I look forward to meeting that I have yet to meet, and hopefully soon.

I tend to enjoy the acquiring things chase often more than the owning things part of life. Wink

I have many faults, and boring quickly is only one of them.

I have a dear friend that always admires the watch if I'm wearing it. I have decided to let him have it. I think he will gain far more pleasure than I from it over the years.

Now please understand, this does not preclude me from buying one again. Red Face
I look forward to it as well W+A.

Ill have you know that I am currently wearing my new purchase...TAG Carerra Twin Time with Alligator strap...still getting used to it but I will say I dont think it will take long! My wife has a champagne picked out to celebrate when the kids go to bed...she certanly has her priorities in the right place Smile

Your friend is a lucky man! I checked out places to buy a Panerai, not an easy watch to aquire.

Well played marcb7, and I think your wife is very wise. Wink
