OK, I know the 232 in itself is kind of a remake already, but I was thinking, in the light of the 448 coming after the 249, would Panerai "do it again" and release in the coming years another "232-like", just the same but with in-house movement.

I think it is very likely, but I believe that a couple of features could change, and make the differences between the 232 and the new one bigger than between 249 and 448:

- I don't think we would see a new Rad with in-house movement and a plain caseback (assuming the new one would have a display back).
- I would anticipate that such a watch would have "Radiomir Panerai" engraved on the dial, as opposed to painted on the 232, as it seems the trend now "373-like"
- And most probably as well the luminova colour would be creamy
- Not so sure about the crystal but I could see a plexi (which would be a nice move)

Just my mind wandering, I know that only future will tell and we can't predict what Panerai will do...

What do you guys think?

....on all counts!

I see no reason why Panerai wouldn't do to the 232 what they did with the 249. Inhouse movement, carved out letters....almost a guarantee!!!

This kind of stuff seems almost inevitable at some point...

The 232 was a great watch and hopefully they do make a re-do as mentioned by earlier posters. Would you guys prefer a saphire crystal or plexi?

Maybe they'd make it a large production piece ala the 372. Keep the integrity of the 294 as a true SE, while still creating another great piece for the masses...

Sapphire. Thinking more about it... I agree- I don't see a 232 remake.

The new Rad base would have a black dial, plexi and in house.

The 6154 remake we're waiting for will hopefully have the brown/blonde/caramel dial, 8mm crown and lugs... Base version of this years Minervas, but with P3000.

232 and 294- integrity kept... New 47mm base rad large production, and 6154!

I have it all figured out to a tee?

Thinking cap off for the night!

with the 232!! Remember the 26A and then 26B and finally 26K!

Personally Id love a plain dial version - no text - with blue hands and a solid case back ... oh wait ; ))
