Awaiting the mesh bracelet /white dial. New variety to my collection. Will publish review once received
hi Omar, you will definitely have better visibility with the gold model as the hands contrast better ie) gold hands on black dial instead of silver hands on white dial. cheers

Thanks.
Very nice watch. Been following Panzera for quite some time as their workshop is literally down the road from where I live in Pyrmont, Sydney!
I bought the rose gold model more than a year ago now. It is an excellent watch, build quality a lot better than I was expecting for the price, although I noticed the price is now lower than what I paid? The rose gold models defiantly have that classy dress watch feel IMO. I also would like to see the Panzera Swiss auto pilot range on Massdrop please.

May I ask if black dual was easy to look at. I mean is the light from ceiling always reflected in annoying way? I am already in and would like to have the golden one but my negative experience with Bambino brown dial made me select the white dial this time. I still have time to change my selection! Awaiting your input. Best regards Omar
I have 2 Watches from Panzera the pilots model, and this model for close to two years now and neither has missed a beat, they are really great timepieces. I wear them as my daily watches so they do get banged about a bit, but 2 years in they are accurate and I like the attention they get from people who think I paid a lot more than I did. I can highly recommend this model and the pilots model. Not sure about there other models, noticed they have a Swiss Made automatic range now, would be nice to see that on MD also.

Thanks. How about light reflection from the dial ; is it annoying?
OmarAl
I have noticed any probably because the glass has anti reflective coating that stops light reflection
I have had a horrible experience with this watch. Have owned it less than a year and had to have it shipped out twice for repair (crown and stem.) In addition the repair shop told me he has these in all the time for repairs due to their poor construction and aluminum movement. It has broken once again.... stay away.
$250 for a Miyota non-hacking and mineral glass?? Not me.

I have one of these, that I happen to love https://www.brathwait.com/mens/watches/automatic

Miyota 9 series, sapphire glass and 100m WR. A better watch for sure.
Just a warning: The instructions that came with mine were incorrect.
The booklet says to turn the crown clockwise to set the time, but this actually moves the hands backwards (which is probably bad for the watch). I confirmed with Panzera that you should turn the crown counterclockwise (to move the hands clockwise) when setting the time.
The instructions also describe a screw-down crown, which this watch does not have. Weird.
i Have one of these and love it, worth every penny IMO. Unlike a lot of garbage watches you can find online at this price these guys actually make superb quality attention to detail watches all the way down to the packaging.
That’s a great watch at about 150$.
Does anyone know if you are able to swap out the watch band on the Ascot Mesh model or is it fixed?
SweetJones
Are you asking if the band is removable? If so yes it is. If you just want another execution then try one of these. Same watch different straps:
  • B42-02N1 | Ascot Abyss (-$-25)
  • B42-02N2 | Ascot Admiral (-$-25)
  • B42-02 | Ascot Spirit (-$-15)
  • B42-02B | Ascot Gentry (-$-15)
  • B42-02R | Ascot Flame (-$-15)

  • If you plan to put a different band then buy the abyss since its a discounted price and toss the band when you get it.
Can't wait when watch will be in my hands, looks so nice.
I bought the gold case model a year ago, and quite how Panzera manage to make this watch at this price amazes me, the look, feel, and quality of this timepiece is up there with watches four times the price. highly recommended. interested in their swiss made model now, sure to be good also.
got this last time, very happy. Have 2 watches now from panzera
White Dial, Steel Mesh Bracelet, thank me later.
Did anyone get shipping confirmation for this watch yet as estimated shipment date was supposed to be April 30th.
tbhari
They sent a mail explaining the shipping has be deleyed. Dont know how long though and support does not respond when i ask when they expect to send it. Also found out shipping to norway takes 3-6 weeks(!). Was looking forward to this watch, but massdrop seems kinda unserious to me, so i cancelled my order
I like the the curved glass thin bezel combo, looks very smart... I got the Panzera pilot watch recently, so not sure I can convince/justify another watch purchase to the wife...... MD can you please call her and explain? :)
Ferrari77
buy the watch, ditch the wife?

Ha Ha... thanks for the advice... could be an option LOL
I purchased the gold version with black strap in a previous drop and it has become one of my favourite watches. the quality is way higher than what I was expecting for the price I paid around $280. one of the things I like about this Watch is its not another seiko or tissot. Not that there is anything wrong with those brands I just like to own something that not everyone else is wearing. The other thing I like about the watch is the curved hands and dial, not something you see too often and I didn’t even realise until I got the watch which is a nice feature
Don97
Thanks for the info. I like the domed crystal. I also enjoy wearing a watch that is not so ubiquitous.
Looks a lot like the Tissot Visodate... except the large size for a dress watch, lack of a hacking, Swiss movement, border around the date window, and the prestige of one of the oldest Swiss watch companies. Why is the price so high for a vastly inferior piece? The Visodate is only 375 brand new...
Treborresor
Hey where can I find the tissot visodate with day and date for 375? My searches come up with lowest price of $488 ex tax for new piece.
helo1
Jomashop - $375
I like the watch and am considering purchasing the black dial version with black leather strap. I'm torn between the stainless case (the Republic Spirit) and the gold tone case (the Regal Spirit). I've shied away from gold over the past few years (ok, maybe even a decade), but pictures of the gold version some have posted here have me reconsidering. Opinions???

Here is white dial version on wrist

Very classy!

If you're skeptical about the size, check this video out. It's not quite as big as I initally thought.
JacksonMZL
Very useful thanks
I was thinking this might be a nice option for business casual wear if the leather or stainless versions were selected. The almost 14MM thickness is kind of strange and a worry though, maybe too thick to fit cleanly under a dress shirt cuff. Can any current owners comment? Otherwise looks like a pretty nice deal at the lowest price.

Yep, kind of a whopper.
watchkook
At first glance, I also thought that's a sharp looking watch - but 14mm thickness?? It certainly doesn't look that thick in the photos, but maybe that's why they failed to include a side pic. Would also apperciate the profile view to get a feel for the domed crystal.
and.. i got it to day :D
Hope we get this drop again!

did not buy it last time but now i did ( to bad no B47-01 terros )
Hey MD, really enjoying my Breuer time-piece. Best features that I like are the curved dial and hands at the ends, and the curved glass..oh and the discounted price :) I couldn't find the same piece cheaper anywhere else online.

42 is way too big for a dress watch or non-sport, non-tool watch IMO. If this were b/w 38 and 40mm I'd consider it. Love the design of the watch but it's sized like a dinner plate and, given current trends (really a style-correction) oversized dress watches like these are just going to look silly in a year or two.

It's hard to disagree with that comment. If you like the watch, buy it and enjoy it.
NikoToscani
You might be surprised. I have skinny wrists and have avoided large watches forever but recently saw an ESQ watch which I thought was huge (at 44mm) on my wrist but have to say I fell in love with it and it is one of my favorites. Later I found the Sector at the same size and love that. Although I question making watch buying decisions based on perceived style trends versus your own personal tastes, if you're just looking for someone else's approval then perhaps better to be safe than sorry.
Looks like a nice watch. this is an aussie brand - they have been doing good things for our small watch industry here down under.
just checking is the lowest price unlocked now?
