i would like to thank all the great folks working at Panerai that made this a cool event and for the invite to hang with folks with the same passion for Panerai! shout outs to Antonius Kerssenbrock, the boutique staff, Andy, Michelle & Ida, i only have positive things to say about them, and to the capable comms team led by Grace for Asia Pac, and Jean, whom i know in Singapore. Alexandra Zoller, whom many round these parts know, was in town for the occasion too and i did manage to say hi to her as the night was winding down. before we go further though, let's check out the watches!

first up is the PAM398/399... in the metal the 398 red gold(oro rosso) version looks just fantastic! i'd prefer it with a '9' an a normal in-house movement like the p3000 so that it isn't so pricey... if that ever comes out...

then we have the 422/423...

the 422 over the 423 for me as i'm not a fan of the pr indicator on the dial... and the 372 over them both... plexi vs sapphire, 9 vs seconds, cleaner dial without text at the bottom... but this is still a very sexy 47mm beast

pic of the watch i wore down of course... this works for me happy.gif

the 449 dot dial i haven't really warmed up to as yet... i prefer the cali dial n will hold out for a 448... the version with gold hands, PAM425, looked nice but i'm not a fan of the piggy on the dial happy.gif
Photobucket

this looked menacing cool... the ecru lume, dark case and strap is a great combo... unaffordable as it says tourbillon on the dial... PAM396 in ceramica
Photobucket

some other nice pieces i spied at the boutique recently that i'd thought i'd share in this post since it is to celebrate the occasion of Singapore's boutique opening... first we have tourby heaven with the PAM 330

and 316

the blue sunburst dial on this is really nice... going through different shades of blue depending on the light...
