Which to choose

Hi all
Need a little input as to which of these models to choose (and yea I know one is double the price of the other two).

127, 422 or 372

I love the size, the 50's case and the simplicity. Am a bit nervous of the 372 plexi - but I think the dial is my favorite of the three.

I think the dial of the 3762 and the dome of the 127 for the price of the 422 would be ideal...

Any comments?

ps: I am also interested in the best places for replacement straps - any shops you would recommend?

372 with plexi. It's a stunner.

Always 127 unless the “1950” bothers you, then 372.

Those 3 are Panerai at their best in my opinion. I have owned all 3. 422 is okay but second hand made the dial busy to me. Although I still have the 372, the 127 fiddy is an absolute Panerai classic. If you can get a full set 127 that is the way to go. I traded mine for a 360. Best of lick with your decision.

127 for sure....but at the time, my budget was limited so I bought the 372. I had that for a few years and I sold it. Big booboo,. Love that watch. Its a stunner.

Without taking the money into account it would be the 127. A classic and one that I would like to own. The 422 is a less expensive version of the 127 visually, at least close. The 372 is a great looking watch and would work. I have owned both the 422 and the 372 and liked them. I prefer the second hand so I would go 422 if the budget was a concern and 127 if it was not. Good luck and let us know what you decide.

If your budget can stretch that far, 127 all day
If, like me, you cant stretch it that far, I'd go the 422
