Hi Everyone,
Just recently picked up a very nice 4BL last week and am having a hard time straping it on the wrist. I have other watches that are more expensive and have no problems wearing them around. Even the 372 with the plexi already has some marks, no big deal in my mind. For the 9 however, I just can't do it. I am just hesitant to mark up the PVD, while although is not perfect is probably 90-95%. Also, it's "vintage-y" in my mind and don't want to screw it up. Now, I have another 5 Panerais and a few other watches that I wear on a regular basis, but if I am not going to wear it, why even have it.

So my question, what do you do with your PVD watches? Wear it or safe queen? Thanks in advance.

And since I know I'll never sell it, I wear and enjoy my BBQ with no worries.








My take is, watches are meant to be enjoyed. If you find yourself not wearing a piece for one reason or another, best to find a watch you will wear, and let go of the other one so someone else can enjoy it. Win-win scenario.

Good luck!

....looks better on the wrist. And that is where yours should be! I've owned PVD watches since I first discovered Panerai. And they have all been worn regularly.

Wear it, Enjoy it!!

I did share your concern when I owned a 9a that was perfect in every respect. I sold it and bought a 95% 4b that I wasn't worried about dinging since it already had a few marks on it.

Since you says yours is 90-95%...then I say wear and don't be concerned. Just enjoy it!
