Also known as 172

I was inspired by the beautiful pics by Luciano in the PO forum
http://www.network54.com/Forum/638808/m ... 80/Pam+172

Having seen the tantalum once on a friends wrist had me intrigued. The strange coloured metal, dull yet shiny, grey but not dark like PVD Pams. And of course, the regal blue hands, the same hue as blue heated screws. The shiny bezel and crown guard juxtaposed with the duller bluish metal is a sight to behold. Is this love ?






No excuses for iPhone pics and no photoshop as the watch still looks brilliant IM(biased)O




Other Pamily siblings will be having stiff competition for wrist time from now on





Thanks for looking mates!

That's a beauty bro.

Not sure what straps will go with it but I'm sure
you have enough in your strap arsenal to find one
suitable.

Congrats on the new pc. Well done m8.

Looks wise, a bit.

Desirability, not so close

Thanks bro! I'm very happy for you!
