After contemplating between a 000 & 112, I finally decided to pull the trigger on an N-Series Base Logo. For months, I frequently visit the ADs to check their availability but unfortunately, it's only the 112 that was always in stock (the Singapore AD opened a couple of months ago but whenever I go there, the Zero's out of stock). I love the 000 because of its Logo and oozing Panerai DNA (well based on what I've read here & other articles). The 112 was a candidate as well because of its sandwich dial and clear caseback, which are features I never had before in a watch.
Last night was the first time I had the chance to compare both models side by side and just like what most of the Panerai owners told me, choose the one that sings to you. And for me, it was the 000!
Without further adieu, the pictures:
Both OEM straps were unused so I searched for a Ted Su Baby Hornback strap as recommended by my good friend:
I'm pretty much happy & contented with my combo:
For now, that is
And now the obligatory wrist shot:
A big shoutout to all the people who educated me about Panerais and who helped me with this purchase. Thanks for looking and Happy Easter!
