Hey all! Happy St Patrick's Day! Quick question as I continue my Panerai strap research. Are there any benefits to sewn-in vs screw-in buckles? I've noticed some manufacturers offer both, and I'm just wondering if one is better to go with?
I realize sewn-in is true to the originals, and I don't really foresee myself buckle swapping, but I guess anything is possible.
if you like that strap and then buy a different finished watch (Ti or PVD) when the buckle is polished.
You wear as is.
With spring bar or screw designs. You can modify as needed to suite the watch.
I have loads of sewn in buckles, but rarely use them unless for my personnel use
