    Since Panerai 'glory days' are behind us (and that's a good thing!) I thought I'd share a couple water pics while I was on vacation last Year. Natural light only, Manual mode on camera and point 'n' shoot.
    No Scuba this time, this was post free-dive.
    Hope you like them. Cheers!

    Always good to get the salt out later :)

    Great pics


    But the last one showing you washing the salt off ...... I Woolf not use any type of soap to do that . Not sure how the soap react to gaskets etc .... for getting rid of saltwater . I would have just give it a through dunk and rinse in a sink ....

    Anyone else ?

    Good Hunting

    Ok that made me spill my coffee all over my keyboard :D

    Thank you guys! I use Canon 750D paired with 60mm Canon Macro f/:2,8 lens. And a lot of light

    Tnx Bill. But as the title said, no Safe Queen's here. If it can't handle a little soap, then off he goes to the bin :)
    But I think it will be ok. It's the least I do to it on a regular basis. It's also one of those strap whore watches

    The photos are spectacular! Question from a newcomer, why do you say Since Panerai 'glory days' are behind us (and that's a good thing!) ? I've personally never been tempted by Panerai (there are too many other fish in the sea) but I'm curious about the comment. Thanks,
    C

    Don't understand the hate for Panerai's out there. Nice watch and great photos!

    Thank you for the comment.
    Well Panerai was back in around 2000 in the same category as any Rolex sport model today. The premiums were pretty high, and you couldn't even get Base models from AD's at that time. Things have changed, and in good direction. Panerai is not popular today as it were, and therefore the prices have fallen to 'reasonable' standards, at least if you are focused on it's core Base models. And since there are no gray dealers who pump up prices to ludacris amounts, you can really enjoy it. I absolutely love the design and it's unique basic look that can be spiced up with just a pair of good, old and worn leather straps

    Any of my fellow NYC watch hunters remember when Pavel was set up in the garage weekend antique market and bought the '40's all original Panerai for a song from some random gee? Man things were frantic that day :D

    Great photos. Like the simple dial (Panerais are growing on me more and more) and I really love open 6s and 9s (have them on my Planet Oceans). That strap you have it on in the photo with the leather jacket... looks like canvas - do you mind sharing the brand?

    Sure,it is infact waterproof canvas with leather underside. It’s the strap with british flag, and was made by Diaboliq straps (on IG)

    I can definitely agree with everyone that your photography skills are to be envied.

    As a former Paneristi and a once active member of the Forum, I was a little taken aback by your comment, but, after some thinking, you aren’t off base. I collected the older models back in the 90s and early 2000. It was probably the only brand that I did a lot of buying and selling, probably bought and sold at least 10 different models, ie, PAM 24, 122, 98, 64, 199, 249, most at a profit, although that wasn’t my intention at the time.

    I kept a few...
