First Impression - Wound For Life

We love getting our hands on a new watch, as it’s really the only way to be sure about what you think and feel about it. But sometimes, it’s just not possible to see it In the Flesh without waiting for months on end. In those cases, pictures and specification lists have to suffice. Follow our First Impression series if you’re like us, and can’t wait another second to pass judgement on new watch releases.

The Perfect Panerai?

Panerai totally shocked us with their PAM676, a svelte 42mm Luminor with a killer dial with classic Panerai looks.
