587 or 622

Been drawn to these two models lately. Which would you choose? I've already had many other Panerai models but now only have the 372.

I wish I can try the 372 to see how it fits on my small wrist. I'm starting to get the Panerai bug lol

I have a 6.5" wrist and love the 47mm size.

You're right, looks great on you.
Actually I bought my first Panerai (44mm) thinking that it's too big but to my surprise I love it. I need to visit local AD and try on the 372👍🙏

587 is an MM and has more historically accurate features, but, for me, the 622 for the font, hands and rarity.

I'm not a fan of Radiomirs so I voted neither. However, if someone used very harsh language and made me wear one, it would be the 587. I would leave it behind in a zombie apocalypse though, harsh language or not.

Not crazy about Rads, but in this case I would go with the 587 (or the 662!)

if you can source a 622..I go that route...
yes MM is nice but its way nicer to get a Panerai Radiomir on the dial and more limited..this coming from a 339 owner

I am not a fan of painted dials so 662 is no go for me..

587's hands don't look proportional to me. If you are looking at no crown guard, why not look at Radiomirs???? 232/249 are TOPS!

I prefer the 1940s cast style over the cushion case. I also had a 183 and couldn't stand the wire lugs.

587 for me, I love the MM. I've never owned either of them though, so my opinion doesn't carry much weight.

Thanks for posting the pics of the 372 on your wrist. My wrist is the same size and I had always assumed that a 372 would be too big on me, but after seeing your pics I may have to go try one on myself. There is hope!

I voted 587. I haven't compared these two in real life, but from the pictures, it looks like the 587 will wear a little bit smaller (optically) due to the slightly different dial layout (number closer to the center).

I tried the 662 on the other day, and I think its gorgeous. Wish I had larger wrists.

Did you make a decision yet?

I like both, but In full honesty, I prefer my 232 to both of them, and now seems like a good time to buy a 232.
