Hi All,

My name is Leo, from NJ. I first saw a Panerai on a friend of mine a few years ago, many of you may know him as RUPanerai. RUPanerai let me try his on at the time, I was shocked how comfortable it felt on my wrist. The size and weight was perfect. From then on, I knew I had to get one.

A few weeks ago, I visited the local AD and tried on some they had, just to get a feel for the watch again. Immediately fell in love with it again. I was debating between the 111 or the 390. Ultimately, went with the 390, just love the dial and gold hands. At first, it didn't pop out at me, but the more I look at it, the more I am loving it. Anyways thanks for reading. Below is my first Panerai and hope many more will come. Thanks to RUPanerai for helping me to secure this piece.



Regards,
Leo C.

BTW, great site, loving reading all your post. I'm learning something everyday!!!!

Glad you enjoy it.
