    Im in just about to buy my first Ferrari 360 (fingers crossed) But i feel I might be wearing the wrong watch to go with the car !

    You may laugh, but I would like to know what watches owners of 360's wear with there cars.

    I have...

    White gold/white dial/black croco Rolex Daytona
    Stainless steel/black dial Rolex Daytona
    44m Panerai GMT (various straps)
    Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chrono

    ... my next watch is probably a Girard Perregeux WWTC or an IWC Portugese Chrono.

    As for a recommendation - can't go wrong with a 44m Panerai with black dial and tan strap - pick up a nice one for £2400. A great Italian watch for a great Italian car!

    Good suggestion Noony - I love Daytonas, but they are pricey for what they are - £6k for a Stainless Steel (£3500 list price) and £11K for gold.

    Well I currently wear a Rolex Yachtmaster, I have bought and sold on a Rolex Daytona (black face)
    Went to try a Breitling Bentley, but it was way too bling for me. The Yachtmaster seems to be too 'old' old for the 360.

    Well ive got enough time before the right car turns up.

    Blancpain Flyback (stainless/stainless, black face), Zenith El Primero (stainless/brown leather, white face), Omega Seamaster Pro Chrono (stainless/stainless, blue face).

    Noony - funny you should say that as I've been tempted recently. Especially since they stopped badly implementing the Zenith movement :) But as LWR550 notes, they're 5.5-6k. And I'm not sure they're worth it (when the list price is 3.5k). Will have to see how weak I get in the coming months, but a Daytona would be cool :)

    There are some nice GP's around too. But I'm not wholly convinced about the ones carrying the Cavallino...can't make my mind up whether it's cheap, or cool...I'm on the former at present sadly.

    I'm with you on the Ferrari GP's. Panerai has just signed the deal to be the Ferrari official watch maker - I may feel differently when I see one of those...

    I hope Panerai manage to retain the style they have at the moment, some of the new Puma Ferrari merchandise is pretty tacky :(.

    I don't have a 360 but do have the 3 watches laying on my desk. Sorry about the repro quality but you might recognise them. One cost £38 and I only wear it on special occassions, another cost £140 and I wear it every day the last cost £2,800 and I never wear it. I guess its called value for money!
