Pam422

What is everyone’s thoughts on the 422? It looks like the ultimate classic Panerai and I’m considering buying one and wanted to get everyone’s thoughts on the 422. Given the style/features on the 422, any others I should consider?

If my wrist was a little bigger that would be the one I get. I am actually in the market for my first PAM. Good luck with your decision.

You will be surprised how well the 422,372 fit nicely on a small wrist.

422 is a great watch. 372 is very similar but no seconds hand. Had both but sold them due to size.

I definitely need the seconds hand which is why I didn’t consider the 372.

For something more comfortable,go with titanium or composite,that’s why I have 368 and 375 along with 372...and they’re all N series which make them a bit more special

It strikes me that if you don't scratch the itch, it'll keep coming back...

I'm on another track right now (Equation of Time) otherwise the 422 would be in my sights. It's an itch that I've had for a few years but not yet satisfied. It's a class act.

IF you are concerned re size then a 233 would be a good call, but it's not a 47mm and is relatively understated compared to the 422.

Not sure if you've seen this post I did re Size: https://www.rolexforums.com/showthread.php?p=9869105

These are my personal take on 422

Plus
47mm case in SS and it fits small for that size
P3001 movement with rear PR (the only pam with this movt)
Engraved luminor marina on dial

Minus
Flat sapphire crystal
Missing 9 from the dial

It’s a ref that made “fiddy” more affordable to the masses

Personally I’d pass on 422 and went with another two refs with 4 cardinal numbers and small seconds

What is the ref for the Luminor on the left?

. I’ve been very happy with mine. Bought new from AD in Las Vegas. Big, but not too big on my 7.5 in wrist. I think the power reserve indicator is cool and that the lack of the “9” is a plus- I dig the asymmetry

The 422 is a classic and gorgeous watch. Hard to go wrong with that as your choice :)
