I cannot stomach upwards of $1K for quartz. It's a nice fashion watch and that's about it, not a true timepiece.

I agree that a $1,000 for a quartz is absurd. There cheaper options are a little more justifiable

i wear a panerai just about every day, i have 2, the pam 111 and the pam088. No one knows what they are unless theyre watch people, otherwise it's not flashy at all..

I also have a navitimer world GMT that it super bright and shiny and that thing brings super attention.

Are there watches out there in the 40mm or less range that have the light brown strap like the tag heuer space-x?
This new watch from Breguet is gorgeous (IMO) and at 42mm will wear smaller, due to lugs and case shape. It is a bit more than a Tag, but probably in the area of the Panerai. Breguet is a very respected brand and this is their more popular line.

A mate has an orange Planet Ocean. I mentioned it on Saturday and he said I was the first person to notice it; he's had it for two years!

So I'd say get a nice watch for yourself but don't expect anyone else to notice it.

Germany makes some quality under-the-radar watches at a fraction of the price that you would pay for Swiss-made (in general).

I wear a Rolex Daytona SS on a daily basis now. No one ever noticed since I bought it about a year ago.
I used to wear an aluminium Swatch for years and got compliments on that one on a monthly basis...
If you want to get noticed, buy a $110 watch, not a $12,000 one...

I wear my panerai 321 everyday and the only people that take notice are watch enthusiasts (who appreciate what it is) and women (probably because I sport a red alligator strap). This is the type of attention I welcome The rest of the population couldn't care less. Wear what you love and love what you wear!

The only watch I have that gets overtly noticed is my Breitling SuperAvenger with an airforce blue face. I am willing to bet that the only reason that even gets noticed is because of the size...48mm isn't exactly inconspicuous.

You wear a Panerai with a red gator strap, you're begging to be noticed in my opinion lol.

BTW any pics of the strap?! I want to see!

Heh. Nice. For the M2, you could maybe get a Patek Annual Calendar in Gold - maybe the 5960. For the Calibre 89 you could get a full set of M's in all years ever made. Hehe. Yes, including the M1.

Still looking. There are two main contenders:



And



I'm also considering this, which is probably sacrilege to you guys because it looks kind of like a panerai. Honestly, I'm not wild about blowing a years worth of driving a new M3 on a watch, and I feel like this is different enough from a panerai to not be called a replica:

Gotta say, kinda digging the Nomos. Those are two very different watches - not a likely comparison. I am not a huge Panerai guy, but I do appreciate them. The world-time complication is one that i like too. Hmmm... decisions decisions. And nothing is really sacrilege. We all like different things. A full-on fake... that would be sacrilege, but if you like a watch, that is what really matters.

I wear submariner daily for years now and no one looks at me differently and no one judges me either. Everyone is cool and does not make a big deal out of it.
