So should I or shouldn’t I? PAM 98


The alarm sounds pretty creepy. What think you?

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.

  1. is that what the alarm is supposed to sound like?
    it sounds broken

    the only other (auto) watch with an alarm I’ve seen that I liked was a UN like this one:

    but maybe that’s not an alarm, I think you have to activate it (and it’s way too expensive 😉 )

    I’m not sure I like that PAM’s noise

  2. Do it! I can’t spring for one yet, allow me the vicarious pleasure.

    The alarm is pretty raucous, but vibrates enough a stone deaf guy would wake up for it. As my hearing slips away and more people mumble, I can appreciate this.


  3. Yep, that’s what the alarm is supposed to sound like, it’s a “cricket” style alarm.

    Before you pay the $6550-$8500 price tag these things usually go for, remember that it’s just a GP alarm/GMT movement in a Panerai case. There are a handful of alarm/GMT watches in the $3000 range.

    But, personally, I really, really like the PAM 98.

  4. I love all the strange and rare movements that you bring to us. But this is just a mechanical alarm. I have one on my Zeno Limited Edition Mechanical. It says it is a 2612.1 movement, I assume that is ETA.
