As others have said, they're both magical pieces! ...as is the 116. Rest assured you're in good shape with either.

I like the balance better of the wording and IMO which is the minority, I think the 390 is trying too hard to look like a vintage piece when its not. To me its kind of like a hot blonde with a real rack next to another hot one with a fake rack.

That's the problem with many Panerai pieces. 55 is a winner.

They are both really nice. But for me, gold hands belong in 47 case size watches, the thicker more pronounced hands need the room that a larger dial affords them to shine through. So between the 55 and 390, I find the 55 to be more balanced. I also think at its price point, the 55 is undervalued so is an arguably 'shrewder' buy now.
