Choosing bw iwc panerai and tudor

I’m having problems choosing between the following preowned watches; panerai luminor marina Pam 003 and iwc Mark XVI ... I am leaning to the panerai as I like it the most.

Also have the choice of a brand new Tudor red bezel heritage.
Pan is $2800
Iwc is $3000
Tudor is $3100 in red or 2.5 in blue

I want the panerai as I think it looks different from others in my collection andhold value. Input please?

I own the following: 1 Rolex explorer ii White, black 1 omega seamaster pro chrono America’s cup, 1 omega seasmater professional blue, tag huer formula one black chronograph, tag form one blue and 1 black, 1 tag heuer carerra, 1 Jacob and co five times 40mm Mothr pearl w diamond bezel and inside, Jacob 5 times black w diamond bezel and 1 timex that I don’t have info on but really like and wear occasionally when dressed way way down or international

If you like the Panerai best, go with that, even though it looks a little rough.

If you like the Panerai you should to go with it.

Personally I have not been a fan of Panerai even when they were all the rage and I don't like Tudor very much either. I would get an IWC Pilot and have put my money where my mouth is. But I prefer the Mark XV (and to a lesser extent the XII) over the XVI (and even more so over the XVII) for three reasons - design (no retro), size (38mm), and heritage (pre-Richemont). Swapping between strap and bracelet adds versatility as well.

I assume you are looking at the picture of the back. Honestly it looks as though the plastic back protector was never removed. Look closely at the picture and I think you’ll see what I mean.

I would go with the Tudor or IWC. I happen to like both. I certainly don't like PAMs.

He said “they are scratches on the case. No plastic”

I’d take a hard pass if that’s the case (no pun intended).

That IWC is a lovely watch. That’s what I would be going for.
