Is anyone else thinking what a great dress watch the new 512/513 will make?

Perhaps a bit large for a real "dress watch", but these will be great for the Paneristi who needs to wear a suit.

I've been without a smaller watch for some time since my Panerai virus took hold. These 42mm 1940 Rads will fit the bill happy.gif

Well said Gary...

Very good point.
It's smaller than we typically wear, but this is a watch that would in fact wear quite well with a suit.

Exactly, but I think it has the proportions and substantial lugs >>>

That it will not look and feel too dainty for someone who is used to wearing 44mm and 47mm sport watches.

The problem I've had since wearing my Panerais is that when I put on a real dress watch it feels almost like a toy watch.

These appear to be smaller but beautifully executed. Can't wait to see them in person. I just hope "you know who" doesn't see the 513 wink.gif

Agreed....

January 21 2013, 3:46 PM 

I was and still am looking for an RG dress watch. The 513 may be just what I wanted, particularly with the lugs. I want to compare with the other 42mm gold rads I was looking at. I also am considering some competitors.

A nice idea to have a 50 case that can be worn with a suit... for

It does fill a void in OPs line-up for sure.

January 21 2013, 4:06 PM 

I truly love the case design. As for functionality beyond the 'wearability' as a dress watch, it's nice to have a date window and seconds hand.

That said, not to take anything away from OP, I tend to look at other brands for dress watches. Diversity, right? happy.gif

Hi, I've been a recent lurker on p.com for the past few months after a friend convinced me that I need to get a PAM. I'm still in search for my first PAM though (looking at the base models, i.e. 112/176/390 for luminor vs 210/183/388/337 for radiomir).

I was hoping to see something great at the SIHH, and the only one that seems to fit the bill is 512. I like the fact that it has an in-house movement, and the fact that it's 42mm is kinda appealing since since I wear business casual to work every day and this could make a great daily watch.

One question i have though is, what's the different between the 512 and 337? Is the only difference the in-house movement, as well as gold color hands on the 337? I guess the case design (i.e. thickness) is different too. price wise they seem pretty comparable as well.

Sorry but i'm still a relative newbie to PAM so any advice would be appreciated.

Dave

Dave, the primary difference is the case >>>

January 21 2013, 4:47 PM 


The 337 has the "older" style Radiomir case with removable wire lugs whereas the 512 is the new Radiomir 1940 case with fixed lugs. The Radiomir 1940 case is somewhat of a transitional case between the wire lugged Radiomir case and the Luminor style case with crown guard.

The wire lugged Radiomir case will likely wear a bit smaller on the wrist and is perhaps a bit dressier than the 1940 case Radiomir. But it's hard to say without having seen them.

Can't say about the thickness, but my guess is that the 512 is negligibly thicker than the 337.

Yup... given the sapphire display back, the 512 is probably a smidgen thicker. (nt)

January 21 2013, 7:30 PM 

Sorry for another newbie question. But typically how soon will the non SE watches from the SIHH hit the market? In the case of the 512, when can one expect to find it at a AD?

The earliest you would expect to see the new models is sometime in late spring. Oftentimes it can be more like early to mid fall.

the 512 would be the best one I like in this years SIHH. would have preferred it in 47mm,

January 22 2013, 5:25 AM 

but hopefully at 42mm, it would be good enough. and at 5900, its bargain

cheers!
