Since these were taken (badly) the PAM 25 has gone to a new home and i have a very nice PAM 89 to replace it. Pictures will follow when the UK provides a nice day, so don't hold your breath :lol:

Really nice collection. Jason Statham is wearing his 212 in "Transporter 3" which came out recently (Todays piece of really useless information...) and I've got a similar version (253) myself.

What do you think, in general, of the cyclops on watches like the 240?

I don't have a problem with the cyclops on Pam's or that other well known brand. It is part of these brands characteristics and imo you accept or reject accordingly.

I do find the repetitive condemnation of cyclops in general, on some forums tedious in the extreme.

Now the 253, and the 286 with hobnails :P i would own in an instant given the chance but the 212 being marked '1950', is relevant to me also given it reflects my birth year :oops: Hence why it was acquired. I only parted with the 25, as the seller of the 89 was keen to trade. Not being a lume freak and hung up on Tritium over Luminova, i was willing to part with it. I can buy a 25 anytime, 89's are a tad harder to locate and do fetch quite a premium.

So, three down and more to go :)

Ok, so I admit I might possibly have mentioned my loathing for the cyclops :D just once or twice!!

At least it's inside rather than stuck on the outside like Rolex...it's odd that they put one on the Radiomir 8 Days but not on the 233 (The Luminor equivalant) and it's possibly one of the reasons I love my 270 so much...

I'll get over it 8-)
