Hi all,

I bought my first watch a couple of months ago, a PAM 320 and i love it a lot! I can't help staring at it!

I have been wearing my PAM five days in a week and i decided to add another watch to my "collection" so i will not wear out my PAM to fast... I am looking to buy a watch around EUR 10k (USD 13k) and really like the Hublot Big Bang series and IWC (new) Pilot Watches.

What can you guys recommend me?

Kind regards,

JD

My first Pam is also a 320, no regret right? The P 9001 is sharp! Recommendation is subjective...between the two brands is a tie,happy watch hunting!

Go for the all black / gummy gator strap version IMO it is the best one. OJ from WUW has one for sale right now on his site at a pretty good price.

Us 320 owners are a happy bunch, aren't we, John? ;-)

May 7 2012, 12:49 AM 

As for your poll, I would probably say IWC. Call me strange, but the screws on the front of the Hublot are never in sync and that really bothers me! AP always has their screws lined up, why can't Hublot do it?

Sorry for my OCD. sad.gif

If you can find a transitional 5002 with the right crown and strap, it's the one. I do though like my 5004 too....

I will always feel Hublot copied AP, so IWC all the way..

May 7 2012, 4:32 AM 

I was just trying on the Big Pilot the other day, it's just a fantastic looking watch, tons of presence on the wrist, nice movement. Hublot feels like a dress watch to me, and I just don't feel comfortable wearing dress watches.. The new Ceramic IWC is nice to me eye, but it's not cheap either..

Thanks all!

Thanks for the replies!

I really love the 320; it is a great watch and yes i am tempted to buy antoher Panerai... But i would also like to own a watch outside of Panerai, so thats why i am looking at IWC and Hublot.

I got a respons that the Hublots are not to good with keeping their value. Not that i am buying it as an investment, but it would be nice to have a solid watch (also concerning value). I wear a suite during the week, so probably the IWC would fit better next to my 320?

Thanks again!

JD
