352 or 312

Hi guys

Looking to swap the omegas for a panerai in the morning

Which would you pick? And why?

Any photos would be appreciated especially the 352 no good photos of that watch online

Thanks

Good move! Iíll go Pam 312, as the Panerai looks better on the strap. Good luck with your choice

x2

Straps are so much a part or Panerai.... pair the 312 with a bracelet watch, like a Submariner or an Explorer.

If I got the 352 I would buy straps also as an alternative - can't wait to see the tabacco dial and gold hands

Not the 352, but tobacco and gold

I would go 352, for me pros are:
+ titanium case and bracelet, steel is everywhere and it’s boring.
+ weight, this model is really light
+ dark grey hue of case and bracelet, thanks to titanium
+ bracelet, though I don’t like pam bracelets and prefer straps, but this option can add pinch of pepper to owner experience (and you need 60 sec to switch bracelet for a strap)
+ brown dial, it goes with titanium perfectly
+ golden contrast hands

How about the 351, then? Money saved on the bracelet can buy you more straps.

I would go 351 also. You get the case you want on a strap and can then knock yourself out on a strap frenzy. Strap swapping with monotonous regularity is part of being Paneristi

Congratulations. I am a little late but that is the one that I would have purchased and the bracelet adds other options.
