Default My Panerai saga...

I started out with a 241 @ 40mm. It wouldn't be so small if Panerai didn't make larger ones. What does that mean? I don't know.



I ordered the SS brushed bracelet for it since I didn't want to spend $ on straps, but I did anyway.





Then I found out about the 392 @ 42mm but it would take the same lug width straps as the 241, and even the bracelet although the end links don't quite mate perfectly with the case.



By this time I needed a box for buckles etc.



Then the AD called me with a really good deal on a used 176 @ 44mm, with a larger lug width, so here we go.





But then the 423 came available and I figured well, it's too big @ 47mm and yet another lug width. I antagonized over it for about a week and the AD shot me a really good deal.







That's the story. Problem is all those good deals add up. Oh well, the medical examiner will never get the smile off my alleged face. Oh yeah, and sorry, no I don't have any monogrammed bespoke shirts with French cuffs to wear with the watches.
