Thanks for the input and support. In truth, I'm OK with this input from DON, as I have much to learn about Panerai -- like what's the news on that 721?
Still, the 249 and 587 are beautiful to my eye. Interesting how the market for this brand has fluctuated so much over the past few years. I'm the guy who arrived late to the party and see watches that still seem fairly expensive, not fully aware that prices were at one time higher.
