The general consensus here on p.com re the PAM424 seems to be that it's a great looking watch, but the date window just doesn't look right on the cali dial.
We're of course just a relatively small group of fanatics and I can imagine that watch enthusiasts that are less interested in the history of the brand feel differently.
Think about it, the gold hands look great... it has a crystal (i.e. more suitable for daily use) and it offers a date which is just practical for most people.

Having said that, I couldn't help wondering what it would look like without the date and without both the date and the logo. That's a simple thing to do with Photoshop...

So if you have a look at the below photos, would you get on the list for any of these versions and if so, for which one?

Original



No date



No logo, no date (the one I'd be on the list for without a doubt)

it looks clean and balance, the date is just killing the overall balance of the dial, in my opinion

The second, with only the logo on the dial is also nice.
But in the end my vote goes for the last pic.
The simple cali-dial looks in this way absolutely great.

not that I like the salad, but I think its more of the same.

I hope they don't overuse the Cali dial. While it is important in the history of Panerai, this dial was in fact the only vintage dial not made or designed by Panerai. Should be used, sparingly.....lol

There are quite a few variations out there already by now. Can't help myself though, I just love that Cali dial, and I'd fancy a version w/o date but with gold double pencil hands and a thick crystal mucho mucho mucho

It looks like a hack job.

If it was flush and elegant maybe but like that. No way over option 2 or 3.
