I've been wearing the 382 almost exclusively for the past five weeks. There's some serious jealousy going on with the others in my collection.

I thought I'd share a before and after pic to show the patina progress.

Here are some of my first pics of the 382 shortly after I received it...








And here she is today...

I like the 382 the best out of all the 2011/2012 releases. I think it is second best submersible ever made (lol)!

If the 382 is indeed the last of the bronze Panerai models, it is certainly worthy.

The patina looks great. Here's hoping that the saga of the bronze patina brings back some interest in watches that get worn. Safe queens are beautiful, but watches that have been worn are much more interesting. 5 year old watches that are in mint condition don't interest me much.

I dig how excited folks are about how the 382 changes. Same goes for Ti, SS, and PVD, they all patina in different ways. Wear your watches!

Thanks for posting Jim.

Kev.

So do you like how its color is now? Rhetorical question perhaps, but still...

Yes, I really love watching it evolve over time. I've never felt this sort of connection or relationship with a watch before. It is almost like I am watching a living thing change over time.

I just wish I had your photography skills to better capture its changes over time.

Your 382 is stunning!!

Great job in working that patina. It is aging perfectly, IMO.

I hope you continue enjoying watching it patina.


Thanks for posting!!

Cheers!
