    not the song, the dial type.
    i have had a hankering for a panda dial in the collection for a while and thought i cant be the only fan?
    so, get them out for the thread, it can be one you own, one you want, one you are currently saving for.
    im currently down to 2 preferred dials...

    or this reissue, love the dial but the tall tales about the movement and the case depth is steering me away...

    Hamilton Chrono-matic and intra-matic. Love the Proportion of the sub-dials.

      No longer in the fold but quite possibly one I regret letting go

        I really love the look of the Longines Heritage - pricey for a Longines though

        If I think of something witty, I'll be sure to write it here.

          I was actually looking at these last night and decided the white dial was my preferred option. pricing is steep new but they seem to be selling at reasonable 2nd hand rates. defo worth addition to the list.

        How about something along these lines... each has its merits... own both myself. Did have the Seiko Pandas as well but never really connected and moved them on when prices went silly. Still mulling over getting the other version of the Tudor, then again you could get the real deal

        Love the look of the panda Longines above

        I’m usually neutral on the panda and reverse-panda, so have not owned many. These two vintages came to my box via their other merits, and weren’t as costly as those above. First, the Seiko Automatic Chronograph 6138-8000 23j, though please don’t call it a Baby Panda—there’s nothing “baby” about being the flagship of the 6138 line









        The other a Reverse… I’m not a huge fan of modern Breitling, and one wouldn’t normally associate “best kept secret” with anything Breitling—it is usually the opposite that tends to be true, and anything Breitling normally commands many times the price of an equivalent-movement brand. However, these Windrider Chrono Callisto, produced 1988-1992, definitely fly under the radar.








        Tri-compax dial with no Date, and no “Automatic” designation—must be quartz? ...No, Breitling Cal 11 is actually a manual-winding Lemania 1873, the same as found in the Speedmaster Pro Moon Watch.

        A watch journey that also serves the betterment of others is one worth taking.

          I had a 6138 a few years ago and liked it, I think the case bothered me at the time? no doubt it would have been something trivial as an excuse to try the next shiny thing

        Love Panda dials. Have you had a look at the vintage Movado Datron watches John?
        Preparation and planning prevent piss poor performance

          was a ball hair away from making an offer on a HS360 then a VJ72 caught my eye, then i got all confused and had a wee nap the older Hamiltons seem to be the best priced of all the vintage mainstream. there are some v.nice Clebar out there, but even those are starting to climb! it seems everything is worth a small fortune at the moment

            Like the Heuer. But Omega all the way out of your original two. Like to see how the Longines wears, quite retro imo
