    Agreed, lots of comments on the 688. Pretty much my go-to when I want to wear a blue dial watch these days...

        The rep is heavier than gen, much more metal in the case and movement as they are both larger than gen.

          I have seen 1-2 Panerais in the wild and it could have been a Parnis, a Dhgate Pam shitter or super rep. Impossible to tell. Unless you are going to a Hardcore Paneristi get together you can easily get away with shitters. No one knows what a Pam is anyway.

                Not a super rep, but it’s a beautiful timepiece! Probably my most complemented watch in my collection. Plus like others mentioned, with only 300 gens made, you’ll never see one in the wild.
                Again, not a super rep, But I don’t care, I love this watch.

                That's a beautiful watch, it's also hard to come across panerai fans in the wild. Even though it's such an iconic watch

                        Thanks,
                        it is a beautiful watch, I replaced my Xtal with a double AR from Prof, that may be the reason they look different.

                          is this hard to do? do oyu have to send it out? or do you do it yourself? what was the cost? and what is the diff? just clearer?

                            Thats a very nice touch, I'm going to try to get a xtal for my pams. Makes the watch look so much cleaner imo

                              I have Prof Xtals on a large number of my watches ( don’t want to quote price as I may be wrong) but I’ve ordered the xtals from him then have my watch smith install the xtal and waterproof my watches at the same time.
                              Yes, it makes it seem as the watch doesn’t have a xtal on it at all.

                                Panerai is known for having shitty crystals / AR coatings so it looks more authentic to have the crap glass, but they do look so much better with a 2x AR'd piece of clear glass IMO...
