The PAM372 in detail

When I took pictures of the new PAM372 at the SIHH in January, I didn't think that another opportunity to take more photos would come any time soon. But it did. Several watches from the new line up were in my hometown after a trade show, and I was given the opportunity to take more pictures of this new favorite of many. My initial post about the PAM372 - and how it compares to the PAM127 - can be found here.

I tried to focus on some of the interesting details this time. The case type number is engraved between the lugs at the 6 o'clock position (below). Also notice how the plexi sticks out.

The depth rating is engraved in the underside of one of the lugs.

And the bb number is engraved in one of the other lugs.

The model number (PAM00372) is engraved between the lugs at the 12 o'clock position.

The lugs are thinner than usual and the shape of the new 1950's case is also different in comparison to the regular 50's case as you can see in the two photos below. Also notice how the crown guard is brushed and how the rest of the case is polished.

The hands have the so-called "double pencil" shape, i.e. both the tip of the hands and the part were the hands connect to the center pin are pointed.

And the last two pictures are my personal favorites.
