Dear Paneristi,

I am violating my own established 'lurker' protocol by posting this first message on this great forum. Name's Nik, I am from Sofia, Bulgaria. I've been enjoying your posts and photos from quite some time. Let's put it that way, after a long 'journey' of selecting the PAM which speaks to me the most, I aquired my first PAM - the O-series base logo:





With the help of this forum, I managed to locate a Zero in relative proximity and I travelled to Greece (Thessaloniki) for a F2F meeting with an incredible person and his lovely family. Bigazzi is a real risti who also made almost 500km roundtrip to meet me halfway. Cheers Dimi, the logo is flawless and is in pristine condition. It is really great to be a member of such friendly community which shares a common passion, after all it is not only a watch

Now, on to strap hunting.... I will appreciate if you post your Logo strap options!

Many thanks,

Nik

I too selected an O series PAM 000 as my first.

Here it is on Micah's canvas.



And Wicket.

thank you all! The pics of your strap combos are really helpful. It looks amazingly good on all of them - It is a very versatile watch (well, most PAMs are!) and it looks great and I am sure it feels comfortable on everything! So far my plans are to get initially at least three straps, one more dressy and elegant and one more distressed for everyday use which will give the watch the vintage appearance that I like and one more neutral - Mike's Asso fits that bill. I will keep experimenting and posting the results here.

Best,

Nik

I'm temporarily living near Skopje. Been here for almost 2 years now, but will be going home in June. I have a zero also, and if you and Dimi ever want to have a gtg, please let me know. It would be great to meet up with you guys.

Best regards,

Carmelo

Cool story, enjoy the 000 mate.

Cheers, Oro.

would be great! You and Dimi are most welcome to visit Sofia. Shame I've never been to Skopje but considering some family matters (niiice ones )I don't see myself traveling there anytime soon! If you come and visit I will make sure you both have good time

That James Bond drop off was executed perfectly, I even managed to go to a ski vacation starting the same day, fortunately for me it was not so far from Thessaloniki. I was unable to avert my eyes from the Zero on my wrist while diving.


A quick and non-related question. Do anyone from you have troubles to login? It seems that I can only do it from my mobile devices over 3G, cannot do that from my home network, nor from work. Banned IPs perhaps?


Cheers,

Nik
