Have narrowed my next choice down to either a Zenith Chronomaser Open Grande Date or a PAM 347. Not usually a fan of Panerai, but this one is speaking to me.
Very nice, CSM.
It is a casual day for me today and I'm wearing a Panerai.
The PAM 347 is really the classic PAM 321 with a metal band. I'm a fan of the P 9000 movement ( in-house) and think you would enjoy the watch. That said, I do love Zenith as well ( excellent movements) and you cannot go wrong here. Does the Zenith have a metal strap? Not sure I have seen that watch with metal before.
The Zenith does have a metal strap yes. The face is just a lot busier than the Panerai so I'm concerned I'll not like it over the long run, which is why I'm leaning toward the Panerai, along with the in house movement.
Much busier for sure. The Panerai sandwich face is classic and clean for sure.
