Do you have any other PAMs?

My vote would be 352, but only if it's not your first.

312 is more versatile. I just love all tobacco dials with gold hands so that seals it.

Bracelet is interesting. Could be more comfortable and practical for daily wear, but it's not in the DNA like a leather strap (or 20).

Still 352 wins for me in this case.

Ti gold and brown dial... can't go wrong; will also be lighter on the wrist!

Black dial will be more versatile though!

I have 368; so I went for that combo.

Good luck

Had a 312 for a year, I found it to be top heavy and uncomfortable after a few hours wear. 351/352 is perfect, very comfortable and the gold hands as already mentioned gives it the edge on looks as far as I'm concerned. So 352, absolutely no contest.

Have it, love it.

Yes it's heavy but in a solid, hefty, strongly built kinda way.

Also feel panerai are born to be on leather and I like the pin buckle over deployant clasp.

Fyi, it comes (or used to) with a 24 - 22 tattooed tapered strap, maybe ask to switch to 24-24 if you want to use the oem buckle on aftermarket straps which mostly don't taper.
