I am on the wait list of the 390 and 386.

I don't think I have a chance for the 390 now. I put my name on the list on the third day after I saw it in P.com.

As for the 386, who know whether it will release or not.

I just saw a 22 B T dial (picture below) on auction with nice patina and may be able to get it for the same price of the above two combined.


I always want a 004 or 009 T dial but is out of my budget. This 022 is a great looking PAM.

How would you choice? Keeping waiting or go for the 022?

I currently own 176, 356 and 372.

Thanks

Assuming the watch is bona fide and in good shape, I would go 22B - Destro, patina, Tdial, Hawt. You have a 372...so you have a great example of the modern classic. The 22B is a rare bird.
Just my 0.02. Good luck with your choice!

...you will not have many opportunities to buy a watch like that. The others will be more available.

But this watch is coming from a repeatable auction house (Antiquorxxx). I saw picture of 22 both up/down cg before. Is the A series suppose to be up or down? or are they all should be up?

This watch is No. A 054/200, case No. BB 971964

If you look, the fat part is supposed to be on the bottom on A series, so it looks like someone just swapped it or put it on incorrectly during service.

I think you are correct. I checked with my other watches and the pin on the backside are all recessed. The pin on that 22A also looks recessed.

So I believe all 22 should have the cg up. If it is not, it is either installed incorrectly or fake.

Wish me luck for the bidding. Hope to have my first T dial.

Any more comment on this 22A other than the cg installed up side down?

The patina looks very nice on this 22.
