Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days GMT Automatic Steel - 44 mm - PAM00329

Visiting friends in Panerai boutique is always a pleasure. Today I remembered a day I bought my PAM00171. First piece from I series. That old style elegant stainless steel bracelet. Back then in that was the best Panerai model for me. Heavy weight of the watch on bracelet, automatic movement and pretty big price tag for my first PAM. My first PAM kept time so precisely. Ah, memories.

Today I tried PAM00329 on the new style bracelet, new in-house movement P.9001 calibre with 3 days power reserve, with power reserve indicator on the backside of the watch. Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures of a see-through backside with power reserve indicator. Very interesting solution with red and blue colors. Date window, seconds and GMT. I did not have much time to learn how to set second time zone or hide GMT hand. There's a chance to get it at nice discount, which is nice for a watch with these functions, which I consider only useful complications. This is my opinion. 

Tactile sensation as same as I had with PAM00171.
