Money that I give to charity usually goes to medical research or children’s charities and we have many, many worthwhile causes here at home in the UK.
Also, I'm sure it must be an age thing (being an old dinosaur such as I am), but I have to tell you that I wouldn’t let those ghastly straps into my house, let alone onto one of my watches!
My Panerai watches are things of beauty. Those straps are not.
Of course, this is just a personal point of view. I know there will be those who will disagree.

If you don't mind sharing, why such animosity toward the Corrigia strap? I do own one of his straps and must tell you, it is definitely not my number 1 -- But, I think overall, it is too bad... let me know your thoughts.

...and invite you to recall that hideously cheap looking bracelet you used to deface your "thing of beauty..." I don't want to dig up the picture as it will turn our wrists to stone...

And the self righteousness regarding the charity is really the only thing that was ghastly about this thread...your patronizing remarks to Christian (who has done a trmendous amount go charitable endeavours since I have been posting on this site) is mildly offensive at best but probably more like obnoxious and dour... Just my opinion, of course, with all due respect; and keeping in mind that some may disagree...

Hi my friends,

is rule No.8 new? Is it necessary to delete my post directly? Yes, perhaps it was wrong not to contact one of the mods before posting, my failure. What´s wrong to do good things to other people, in this case to do something good to the Duomo of Florence.

And the discussion about the straps? I don´t think that these straps are "Uglydolls", Cengi has donated them for this action, he has spend his time for making them and for this hes has my deepest respect. Cengi you are great!

I can accept your decision, it´s your playground, thank´s for your support, but I think especially in this "Panerai community" it´s normal to help each other that´s the Panerai spirit we all so love and why we are here!


Have a good day.

Kind regards

Christian

Hi Christian,

I know that the Paneristi Club Germany organized a charity inititiave last year as well and that one was for a facility that helps very ill children and their parents. A first one an a noble thing to initiate and execute.

Charity doesn't always need to be only for poor or sick children and I believe that supporting a heritage site a noble thing to do as well.

Better go back to start, get approval from the moderators and post it again!

I salute Cengi for at least putting his energy, time and material in the donation of straps for this new charity initiative, true Paneristi spirit!

As it seems to be an easier way of self promoting his straps on the public forum.

So what happens when other strap makers start doing it. Not for charity, but to get their name out there rather than use the sale forum and use charity as an excuse.

Sorry, but this type of charity post doesn't belong here. Let him donate a portion of his sales to charity and sell them like the other sellers on this forum.

is to act as a place where ideas and opinions can be freely expressed as long as those ideas and opinions comport with the rules of the forum.

You didn’t like my bracelet a little while ago? Absolutely fine with me. I quite like it. You expressed your opinion. It differs from mine. No problem with that.

I didn’t like the straps being auctioned? I expressed an opinion (on reflection, maybe a little too strongly). You disagree? No problem with that.

Self-righteous? Patronising? What tosh! I merely expressed my opinion as to the types of charity to which I choose to donate. I agree wholeheartedly that Christian’s a good chap – here our opinions coincide – and I made no criticism of him.

You seem to espouse the view that any critical or dissenting opinion has no place here in the Public Forum. If anything could be regarded as mildly offensive, obnoxious, and dour...................
