Before I was really into Panerai, I had both a white and black dial Rolex movement Daytona, and loved them - wore them all the time. Then I got a Big Pilot, and a PAM 217, and it was all over. Sold both Daytonas as I figured I'd never wear that size watch again. But then I picked up a 50th Anniv. Sub, and really got used to a smaller watch again, and started to miss my Daytonas.
Fast forward to last fall... I ended up taking an A-series Zenith movement Daytona as part of a cash + trade deal, and am really happy to have a Daytona back in the rotation.
Here's the Daytona, the sub, and my new love, the new ExpII...
