Good day seniors,
I have just collected my first Pam early this month and have not look back since. At this moment, I am looking for a daily banger which looks good with both leather and rubber straps. I have since shortlisted the Pam 233K and Pam 372 which have very close price range. Both offers have dated warranty on Dec 2011 / Jan 2012.

My main concern will be scratching the sapphire / plexi glass. I have no experience with hand wind movement but fell in love with the multi-functions 233K yet love the simple base classic Pam372. As much as I love to, I have to force myself to choose just one as I wish to add a Pam 449 to my collection somewhere this year.

Kindly advice me which is a better choice for a daily Banger based on my collection.

1) GMT iic
2) Pam 382
3) Pam 448 / Pam 449 (wish list)

Much thanks in advance and all advice are appreciated.

then forget about adding a watch with a plexi to your collection.
So after reading what you wrote I'd get the 233, not the 372 if I were in your shoes.
Cheers,
Martin
