Why just looking? Join in!!!

As the title says, i've been following for years P.com having a great time, learning about Panerai -also learning how to organize a 3-day GTG (like last November's DU GTG), which took place here in Corfu, where i'm located, with some Greek WIS's last January- expanding my knowledge about those beautiful watches -and my strap collection as well from the accessories corner!

I trully enjoy the knowledge base that is shared here, all those excellent travel reports as well as the GTG's (always make me hungry...)!

So, since i've started posting, i think that it is more appropriate to introduce myself:
I'm George, a school teacher, living in the beautiful island of Corfu in the west end of Greece at the suburbs of the town!

...oh, of course here's me (Nad's style pic, but waaaaaaaaay less beautiful -needed some shaving and much more Photoshop!!!)

And here's my humble collection!

The Florentines...

...the Swiss's...

So, here i am!
Hoping to continue having a great time not only by looking, but by talking and sharing with all you guys!

Best
George

I do think i have great taste in watches!
The only issue is the money, lol!

As for the Ennebi, when Alessandro told me that there is a spare bronze bezel, i did not wait a second! It makes a fantastic combo!

As for my photo skills... my phone has an excellent camera...

Yeah, the bronze bezel is a beautiful combo with the Ti case. So how did that come about? You enquired for a bronze watch and he told you there was a spare bezel?

Bronze bezel for the Fondale...

August 7 2012, 6:27 AM 

came by accident!

I sent the watch for maintenance to Alessandro and i just asked him to send me a picture with a bronze bezel attached to the watch!

I loved it, and i asked Alessandro to send me one (suggesting him that he should make this bronze bezel option available to Fondale owners, check Ennebi's FB page, it's my watch shown there...).

...the only thing I would have done, personally, is the hand painted dial in black or maybe red/brown. Also, perhaps some gold hands and a white second hand. Nonetheless, I think it's the star of your collection.

That bezel would look so good on a PVD case too!

I know the bronze Fondales were limited, but as you said, I hope Alessandro would make this bezel available. I can see myself ordering one of those soon.

Some other quick questions:

Did you PVD the lugs and crown on that Seiko Tuna-Monster SE?

Is that a Steinhart pilot with the Greek flag? Was that an SE for a watch club or forum?

Bronze bezel is available for sale,

August 7 2012, 11:17 AM 

as far as i know! Just shoot an e-mail to Alessandro!


My Seiko is the SRP231 which came as is!
No need for any PVD treatment!

The Steinhart pilot with the Greek flag is No.4/32 of a SE from a Greek watch forum, mywatch.gr .

All of those look like real winners! Beautiful island that looks like which you call home. Lucky you!

I don't post too much here but visit frequently and have been given a lot of direct, great advise over the years. This is a true, GREAT, community that has grown immensely, enjoy!

I see one piece we have in common that I never hear about,the Aquagraph. Of my watches, I adore this thing. It is my main "Tool" watch and does everything with me.

How do you like the Nato on it? That's my next one. But, for now, I have it on a 24" Elise w/ yellow stitch notched to 22MM @ the lugs which I think gives it a great balance.

Anyways, enjoy life and have fun here!

Josh
