Well just got back from my Italy trip. It was fantastic! Got to go to the Panerai Stores in Florence and Portofino! The shop in Florence was great I got to try on the 2010 Regatta PAM343 and a few others that I wanted to see on the wrist before making a decision. The ladies were some of the most professional and knowledgeable women I have met in regards to time pieces. They told me that they PAM 339 would be at their store by October 29th with out any pending delays They were not sure of their allocations but their list was 200+ and they could not put me on. One of the girls that was assisting my fiance (I think she may have fell in love with her, we all had dinner and partied in Florence later that night....... ; ) Offered to call the store in Portofino said that she could get me on their list and I might have a better chance to get one Although she said it would be highly unlikely that I would get one she said at least its a start. :clap::clap::clap: She made the call and put me on the list and I even got to confirm I was on it when we visited the store in Portofino.
