Hello everyone, I have finally made a decision to join the magnificent Panerai group. However, making a decision to purchase wasn't the hard part but making the decision which to purchase. My preferences are always hard case and sausage dial. I came across a PAM000 at the beginning, and I was so sure about it but too stupid to make a reservation...somebody bought it hour ago before I arrive

So I left a PAM005 (from a local dealer) and a newly discovered PAM390 (sorry, i am total noob and i was not aware of it :P). I would really appreciate if you could share some of your opinions on whether the PAM390 is for a new guy or i should stick to the PAM005...Many thanks!

P/S: if you have any of these for sale, please do not hesitate to propose

I've been struggling about deciding...PAM390 indeed is a very nice watch, PAM005 will allow me everyday use in a rugged way....while PAM390 is more a collectible item...hhmmm.....
