A couple of years later, sometime in 2012 I think, I got to borrow a PAM000 from a friend who was going to sell his. I was seriously considering to buy it but after wearing it for a week I changed my mind. Even 44mm felt too big for me. It worked well with casual sweaters but I couldn't pull it off at work wearing dress shirts. Also I’m not a big fan of manual watches.

Since I still like the look I don't want to erase Panerai from my watches-to-buy-list totally. I have considered the 40mm automatic version as a final alternative and I'd really like to try one in the future. But no more Marina Militare that's for sure. Take my advice and stay away from those cheap knock offs.
