This is my first Panerai. Radiomir 210.
Really enjoy wearing this watch. I love the super clean look, the sandwich dial, and the movement's clean decoration. Considering its size, 45mm, it is so comfortable compared to all the other watches I wear.

Nice One Ice! You finally took the dive on the Panny :) Glad you are enjoying the Radiomir.. I've tried them on and didn't quite hit the spot the first time.. but admitedly, it may have been the strap. For me, I've gotta have them on the right strap or they just dont do it for me.. but i've been thinking long and hard about a Radiomir.

The 210 is, in my opinion, the most understated and best value for money Panerai that there is. Great find :D

Beautiful! Understated, simple and elegant. I love the simpicity of the no complications dial. The PAM112 is what really attracted me most to Panerai in the first place. Now I am almost torn between that and the Radiomir. I really think I prefer the crown on the Radiomir, as well, without the crown protector. I also really like the way the strap is attached to the case. I don't know if that is called a lug? I am sure one day I will have a Panerai, now I am not so sure if it will be the 112 or the 210! Well, I have quite a bit of time to decide. Meanwhile, thanks for the pics.
Cheers,
Carl

I think you'll find it's called a 'wire' as there are two, one each side, each in the form of an 'L' - held into the case by a screw, with the other end of the 'L' fitting into the bracelet/tube.

i'm really warming up to the base rad...who needs the second hand. i think i'm going to be a full panerai convert soon :shock:

besides the gold hands, i actually prefer the 210 over the 232...smaller 45mm dial, display back suit my style more.
