Which Panerai

Hello Everyone, I am looking for your help. I am looking to get a new Panerai. It would be my second ever. My first was a PAM590 which I sold about a year ago.

What I am looking for now is any current model that has somewhat of a domed glass.

Would anyone know which models have that, be it Luminor or Radiomir.

Thank you in advance.

So what you guys are saying is ....... 233?
lol. Thank you so much guys. I am looking into it now and I must say it looks amazing and at 44mm it isn't that big either.

If anyone else has other opinions please keep them coming.

I find it actually wears very comfortable for a 44mm. Just something about it. Other than slightly domed crystal, do you have any other preferences or limitations? Price, colour, etc.?

Other nice ones are the 995, 998 and 999. I still personally think 233 is the nicest pam out there, even if you weren't asking for a domed crystal haha.

I would not mind sticking with SS and really I would like to stay under 20K Canadian.

I do like the case shape of the Radiomir line as well.

Thank you

No problem at all. The radiomirs are also very nice and the green is different in a good way. All the recommendations are under 20k cad. Please keep us posted and send pics if you need help!

If you’re looking for “new” the 995 is nice.

I actually got to try the PAM 995 before all the closure and I loved it. Very nice watch, not thick at all and the green and brown look fantastic, far nicer than in pictures.

I have the 233 dot dial and to me is the pinnacle of Panerai. I also like the 422 but was just too big at 47mm but a great piece if you can pull it off.
