As most of you probably know by now, I've recently decided to make my first big watch purchase, I already have a savings model in place, and now the only question is which watch do I get?
On one side there's the Panerai PAM 177, and on the other theres the Omega Planet Ocean 45mm. If both watches were the same price, I wouldn't hesitate to buy the Panerai, however the PO can be had for about $3,500, Whereas the PAM is more like $6,000 (Both new. Want new for this one). The reason Im very interested in the PO, is because I really like the watch, and I could afford it much quicker. The Panerai would take twice the amount of time to save up for, but I'm not going to deny I like it more... The PO is also automatic, which is nice, but not a deal breaker at all. Another point is that its not about which I can afford, its just how long I have to save to be able to buy one.
So which do you guys thinks would be a better first watch? A Planet Ocean gives me a running start for future watches, and a part of me tells me it would be a better first purchase to start my collection, but I want the 177 more.
Thanks for your input,
So its this-
