    Watch / Time Related Christmas Presents?????

    So, who got what?

    Well,I was actually looking for the cheaper pam 368 (it was my grail and I am willing to pay for it myself) until I saw this for sale for the amount that was slightly above my budget,spoke to my parents and they said they will pay the full price and give this as Christmas gift since I have been looking for a destro 8 days Ti Pam since 2011 when this was released (in 2011,Panerai launched 2 Titanium destros along with bronzo,I was aiming for the cheaper,time-only one,but ended up with the monopusher model)

    Back then I simply couldn't afford to buy this particular model even if I scrape up all my fun money,hence I never even bothered to look at it nor even trying it on in the shop

    And after this,I think my buying will slow down significantly,because this is already an upgraded version of my so-called "grail"

    Anyway,just want to add the inspirational message to this story,dreams do come true in unpredictable way,just be patience and keep your eyes peeled for good deals
