Just returned from a great weekend in Viareggio at the X1 Club Panerai meeting. Volker has already started posting some great pictures from the event

I arrived on the wednesday evening as I had an appointment in Firenze early thursday morning

Leaving the hotel 0520



Decided to walk to the train station. Not many early risers today








I am not the only one a long way from home




Arrived Viareggio station - not many commuters yet





A great platform number to arrive at Firenze




Boutique still to open so did a bit of sightseeing and window shopping













Boutique now open so its time to go in



Serial No 289 checking in



OEM strap way too short for me so something more suitable fitted



A very happy Ron



Having an espresso in the Boutique along with some Officine Panerai chocolate. Yes, I did keep the little box LOL




Back at Viareggio its a little busier now






More espresso at the hotel waiting for Volker and the "Crew" to arrive



Thanks for looking

Ron
