I'm thinking of adding one of my grail pieces to my collection.
It's between the 339 and a 9a / pre 9a.
Which one would you pick and why?
More desirable in the future?
Thanks for your answers.

The 9 is D league, and the 339 is WNBA. Not that there's anything wrong with D-leagues or WNBA, just the NBA is where the maja playas play but seriously if the price difference isn't a big factor t-Swiss-t, pvd, and fatty creamy numbers is where I'd go.

While the 339 is a great watch with 8 Giorni + MM, the composite case just isn't classic Panerai. On the other hand, a preA 9 is nothing but pure classic Panerai. No contest for me.

But only becasue the 9a would sit in my safe and not be worn. Anything that happens to the case can't be fixed, just remember that. Good luck Troy, beers this weekend? =)

if you can afford and $ isn't a problem, go or a preA. If $ is an issue - go for the one that you like the most! Can't really compare the models you have mentioned...

Best of luck.
