Sold off. Omega Speedmaster
Buy from an authorized dealer = no problem.Did you go through an AD for it, brand new? I’m seeing lots of warnings on YT and discussion boards about Panerai counterfeits being everywhere. Some so good they can’t be confirmed fake until opened up and the movement inspected.
Virtue signaling. Tres chic.I did construction work most of my life and wore a Timex every day. I always replaced the watchband with a Twist-O-Flex so that the watch was easy to take off and put back on or push up the forearm to get it out of the way. I also like an analog dial with a white face and black numerals and I like having a button that lights up the dial so you can see it at night which is something Timex eventually offered. Other than that I never needed any other extras.
I never saw the need for a more expensive watch and I've never liked the looks of dive watches and I have problems with my ears and can't go further underwater than about ten feet so I've never had a need for a dive watch and to me they look gaudy and pretentious and if I were going to get an expensive watch I'd like something with a much more simple design.
And I also like the twist-O-flex type of watch band much better than a strap that buckles or any other type of band. I like being able to slip the watch on an off without a lot of fiddling around.
I stopped wearing a watch years ago when I started carrying a cell phone.
