I replaced it with a Panerai (Pam 0072) that is already worth more than I paid.

Monday, I think I'm going to pull the trigger on another Z series Submariner. My Panerai I'm wearing more as a dress/special occasion watch, and I need a nice daily wearer.
that's how i did it, my sodalite datejust was a few years old but unworn with all stickers. got a great deal, and it's appreciated nicely through the years.
