I lost count in no time wink.gif

Very recently a extremely passionate risti reached out with his hands in almost a desperate
attempt to seek out 'nut cases' like himself. He had apparently hit a wall when he attended a 'gtg'
that was organised by a local AD. In his words 'not one Paneristi turned up". sad.gif

Well what do you expect mate? That's not the way we roll in Singapore. happy.gif)))))

After his post appeared in Pcom, a few frantic phone calls were made and the stage was set. This chap needed 'therapy" and he needed it NOW! So the few who could swing it that very night, gathered together and provided him an 'outlet'. happy.gif)))

Thomas mate, it was a real pleasure meeting up last night. If it's any comfort to you, today the few of us had to seek therapy of our own as we got so depressed over the state of our own collection. The the LACK of it that is! happy.gif)))



The first piece on my wrist, the 6154. I should have made a run for it! happy.gif

A close up shot. What a dial! Insane really!

Looks like it was made for you bro!

Thomas had this on his other wrist, the 3646. The strap I think he made himself!
[linked image]

Two very happy blokes as they managed to close the deal. YAR RIGHT! happy.gif

After a few pints, Thomas thought it would be a good idea to lend us his
'GPRS' to find our way home. Out came this little monster >>>>>>

And so there you have it, 3 rare pieces from OP. What else could a guy ask for right?

WRONG! Dead wrong!

How about a 4th piece? happy.gif
[linked image]

Take a good look, notice any difference? wink.gif
[linked image]

Lost count yet? How's this then? Seeing double? happy.gif)))))
[linked image]

Thankfully it wasn't all about vintages, some 'youngsters' made an appearance too.
[linked image]

First time I've seen one upclose, WOW is the word mate!
[linked image]

How about a group shot?
[linked image]


Oh I forgot to mention the 203? Sorry lar! happy.gif)))


A closer shot.

However for me personally, there was one single piece that truely stood out from
the whole lot. Truely a unique piece and I kid you not. Take a look>>>>>>>>>>
[linked image]

What? Not clear enough? Ok let's try it again. happy.gif
[linked image]

How's THAT for special! 1 of 1!

Last shot of the night. You see HIS knees? happy.gif)))
[linked image]

I can't drink, so it wasn't the booze that made my eyes look like they were almost
closing. It was the dazzeling pieces that Thomas had so willingly and generously shared
with us that made me want to cry. When will I ever get to own one sad.gif

As Terrence said, it was a pleasure to have met you last evening Thomas and look
out for our kopi-o gtgs mate. happy.gif

It was a SURREAL evening on SO many different levels.....

February 1 2011, 2:16 PM 

The obvious reason was the abundance of grail and vintage PAMs on show ... very honestly, I woke up this morning half imagining that I dreamt up the whole thing last night! (not kidding)

Way too many memorable images of my grails, the 203 is of course one of them. But there were SO many others happy.gif

BUT: more importantly on 2nd thought is the comradeship that only Panerai and P.com can generate among people from all ways of life happy.gif

Tom: as mentioned, it was a huge pleasure meeting you! Thanks so much for the generosity in sharing not to mention letting us view your awesome collection. But more importantly, for the great company. You may have only just met our little group for the first time but, sincerely, we were talking as if we had known each other for years.

Until next time!

Cheers!

TC (Singapore)

Hey, let's not forget...

I'm always loathe to let the watches overwhelm the camaraderie.

Welcome to the group, Tom. Your anecdotes are truly priceless and I am sure there's lots we can learn from you yet.
