Panerai Luminor Base 114 White Dial
« on: August 06, 2011, 05:59:37 AM »
To tell you the truth, I was not so much a Panerai fan. I believe that it is a brand that you will either love of hate it, there is nothing gray about that.

I was so much in Rolex, and was thinking becoming a one brand collector.

After getting more information through most of watch forums in the net, I noticed that most Rolex collectors will also have PAM in their collection, hence the close relation of Rolex to earlier Panerai...

So... having a SS Submariner Date with black dial & Polar Explorer II, I started to wonder which PAM to collect and trade with one of the Rollies...

I have to keep the Sub Date, so Polar had to go (I am not so much attached sentimentaly with my things if you notice. I will let them go if there is a need).

By replacing Polar, I need to replace it with another white dial... hence a white dial PAM..

There are two options, either preowned PAM 113 or PAM 114 that are sort of within my budget. Looking around,found 2 places offering one of those.... but they should be willing to take my Polar at reasonable trade value.

The major difference between those two are:

1. Seconds Hand: 113 with vs 114 without
2. Movement calibre: 113 OP XI vs 114 OP X

What happen next? I opt for the 114 mint H series...Why?
1. Cheaper ma...
2. Better trade in lah...
3. Classic 2-hand macha....

Here are the photos:

The watch spec as posted in Panerai website:

Movement: hand-wound mechanical, Panerai OP X calibre with swan's neck regulator, 16½ lignes, 17 jewels. Cotes de Genève decoration on the bridges. Glucydur®  balance with Nivarox® I spring, 21,600 alternations/hour.
Incabloc® anti-shock device.
Power reserve 56 hours.
Functions: hours and minutes.
Case: diameter 44 mm, AISI 316L polished steel.
Bezel: polished steel or brushed titanium.
Back: see-through sapphire crystal.
Device protecting the crown: (protected as a Trade Mark) brushed steel.
Crystal: sapphire, formed of corundum, 3.5 mm thick.
Anti-reflective coating.
Water-resistance: 30 bar (~300 metres).
Strap: leather with PANERAI personalised buckle.             

Overall Feel:

Although with 44 mm case size, it sits well on my medium size wrist (using the 2nd last rubber strap's hole). It is not so much recognised as PAM design due to its dial color. Love its simplicity without much complications. The weight is tolerable... as I am also used to Sub's weight (well, I feel naked without the watch weight feel)

Well... I am a Pam lover now...

Congrats! May you wear it in good health. Seems there are not many PAM white dial enthusiasm amongst Paneristic. I am glad to see that there white fans out there.

Please allow me to share some pictures of my white PAM00499 as well.
