Hi all,

it's the last one - I promise...

Saturday afternoon last week, Hotel Club I Pini in Lido di Camaiore / Italy.

This was our first shot - LOL

We returned from the trip to the naval academy in Livorno and another well known
paneristi was already waiting for us: Eng Tay. He came over the long way just for
one night... a strong performance, wow!

Asi and Eng were immedately start chatting about Panerai watches (what else, hehe).

Inside the hotel the exhibition was about to started, some very interesting items were placed for display.
Note on the right (infront of Piero) the aiming device for patrol boats, made by our favourite brand.'s a Luminor - yeah, sure!

Someone was pointing out a "Schwarzenegger Luminor" on the table...

...this gold coated bird got a lot of attraction, you bet!

"I'm gonna cut your balls off - better stay clear from that table!"

We got something for our mate Hammer to be personalized by each of us.
Very close in mind. Always with us.

Outside in the hotel's garden Marc was still going nuts because of that
BNIB 5218-202/A he saw the other day, hehe...

Matteo, Asi, Ralf, Francesco - on the other table Jens, Eng and the Lonan Ranger.

More "relax" was performed later inside...

Graham - I somehow got the feeling that you were in the dial study again...

Luciano, Graham, Mario, Eng, Hagen and Vanni

More italian members together with Eng. Mirko got him a cool hat.

Monica was serving excellent wines during the dinner for us.

...did I mention we were in good company? Benedetta and Clif's daughter:

Here Benedetta and her sister Simona - or did I mixed something up here?

After the dinner it was time for the traditional "vintage fleed table shot":

Graham are sooo lost! LOL

...and later one of us was on the winning street, hehehehe...

Well, that's all for this year... to make it short: I'm looking forward to the next one! Alla prossima!

Thanks to Piero and all who helped to make this meeting such a great time! Grazie.
It surely had the status "unforgettable" for me...

Thanks all for looking,

representin' the DNA of Panerai
