    Panerai or JLC AMVOX2 Chrono

    I just bought my first Panerai PAM240 4 months ago and since then, i have gone crazy about this brand. My wish list just keep growing now. I have been looking for another PAM with the 1950 casing, tosing between PAM359, PAM253 or PAM386. But since the 386 will not be available for at least another few months, i decided to go with the PAM253

    While in the hunt of getting PAM253, on the other hand i keep telling myself to consider other brands such as JLC or AP just to get the different looks and style. Apparently, One of my good mate is selling his JLC AMVOX2 Chrono DBS and by looking at the watch, i was very impressed with unique chrono mechanism and also the famous JLC movements.

    I am now in a very deep dilemma which one should i get. Price wise, they are very similar.

    What do you guys think? Any input would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    Unless you intend to only collect panerai, I'd definitely go for the JLC. In-house movement, fabulous company, and very different look from your existing PAM ( very nice BTW). Of course both are fabulous watches and I don't think you'll go wrong with either. Great dilemma to have! Good luck in your choice!

    Panerai. Just my opinion on what I like though.

    The cheapest JLC is a far better watch than the most expensive Panerai.

    Since you already have a Panerai, I would undoubtedly go for the JLC- I'm jealous!

    This just came for me, so I might be biased.



    But I'd probably go for the JLC if I were you.

    Thanks for the input guys. I think i have made up my mind. After looking at the different pictures for a couple of hours, JLC would be the better choice. I need to diversify as dlittles said. Couldnt agree more than that.

    well anyway hopefully, it will be on my wrist by the end of next week.... Cheers.

    Will post pictures once i got it

    I would personally not get this particular JLC model. I find the dial a bit cheap looking, tasteless.

    Re: Panerai or JLC AMVOX2 Chrono

    Fundamentally different because one is a chrono while the other is essentially a car opener built into a watch with an oddly designed chrono dial. Are you looking for a chrono? If so look at other JLC or IWC models. note: edited to correct my characterization of the JLC as a day/date display.
