PAM 029 M From Mary At WatchInternational : Review

Recommended Posts

007omegafan

Well, I must say, I'm IMPRESSED. This is the third watch ordered through Mary and though it took a bit longer to arrive than initially expected, it was well worth the wait.

 

Comparing the PAM 029 to the Seamaster Chrono and Planet Ocean I've received from Mary, this watch is almost in a different class. The materials just look so solidly constructed. The bezel is beautiful, the crystal is "crystal clear", the AR on the crystal is superb, the dial is crisp, and the markings all look on point.

 

The face : Stunning. Traditionally, I haven't been a huge fan of the Paneria watches as I thought the designs were a bit too plain for my liking (I suppose this is why I gravitate towards Omegas) but this is reallly a classy watch. The tuxedo styled dial gives it a nice splash of design while the markings provide the traditional, classy Panerai look.

The bezel : Likely the piece I'm most impressed with. The contrast of stainless, brushed, and polished steel give it a beautiful, high quality finish that screams quality. This is hardly an off-the-street watch but rather a superbly high quality watch.

Backing and Band :

My buddy wanted a more traditional looking band for his so, prior to the watch arriving, he ordered a slightly larger (26mm) band that, while slightly wider than it should be, fits and beefs up the watch. With a thick clasp, it complements the watch well with a sturdy, durable look. The aligator (or is it crocodile) band that it came with was also very nice.. he just wanted something that looked a little less dressy. As a third watch, he also picked up the Mad Max style carbon leather with deployment clasp. I'm looking forward to seeing that on it. The leather that came with the watch and the mad max can be seen here

Movement :

 

Maybe my eyes are deceiving me, but the movement on this actually looks even more fluid than the Asian ETA on my Omegas.

 

 

Wrist shot : though it's a larger watch, it works as he has a larger wrist than I.

All in all, this is an incredible watch and I have to give Mary a ton of credit for sourcing such a piece.

Congrats mate, great looking watch, a Pam I'm starting to like :) The dial texture and bezel engraving really differs it from other Pams.

 

May he enjoy the watch :)

Beautiful watch.

 

When you say "took a little longer than expected to arrive..."

 

Where was the delay? i.e. Did it take Mary time to get the watch for you or did it take a long time to arrive once shipped.

 

I have an order shipped by WI on the 11th of October that still hasn't made it to Canada via EMS.

 

MR shipped my order two days after WI and it arrived 7 days ago.

Neon,

 

Why are you threadcrapping pics of your PAM complaining about lume on another guy's feedback page? If you have concerns about a completely unrelated issue, why are you harshing dude's buzz? Your's isn't even a 029.......

 

Member please...........
