Well it's time to find a new home for some of my old beaters and my foray into Pamology. Been eyeing up Rainer's boxes, while an 8 watch box would be fine for the time being, I am thinking of having room to grow and getting a 12 watch box.

Can anybody with 12 box comment on how well PAMs fit into the box. Right now I have a PAM 127 on steel, but plan on adding similar sized watches to my Pamily.

Read on one forum that someone had troubles with the box closing properly with PAMs. But it was the only post I could find.

Thanks!

probably five years or so and it's still in fantastic condition (also the cushions). Personally, I would suggest you get 2 of the boxes for 6 watches due to the wider cushions. Plus, I think they are more convenient to store. My 47 mm Panerais fit perfectly in the boxes.

Cheers,

Christian

preference, I have 2 of the boxes for 6 watches each. I also have a Buben & Zoerweg box which is quite impractical in comparison.

Cheers,

Christian

I received mine yesterday and it is perfect!!!!
It's beautifully made and holds my pieces perfectly...
It is full...12 destros and a Bronzo...but even with thick Simona straps on the 317 and the Bronzo it closes perfectly......

My only mistake was not purchasing the next bigger size ....but at this price you can afford to do so....

I cannot say enough good things about the fit, finish and practicality of this piece

Thanks. As long as my PAM (hopefully soon to be PAMs) fit and it closes fine, my concerns are alleviated.
