Not to worry, the best straps for Panerai are custom-made anyway. Contact any of the custom strap makers out there and they will be able to make one that will fit you.

(Any of the strap-hungry Paneristi here can recommend their favorites, mine is Mark Sanders at handmadewatchstrap.com)

Well like I figured the straps wouldnít fit me so I used one of my leathers from my Rolex rotation. Obviously not the right size but wanted to see how it wore since this is my first one. Iím definitely not use to the size. May take some time getting use to.

390 is an awesome piece. Limited edition and one of the few luminor with rose gold hands. It's beautiful !!!

My first was 422, thought that domed crystal, classic dial layout and manual wind with power reserve indicator was so cool.
