Hey All,

I am new to the forum and a recently made the switch from Breitling over to Panerai. So the short story is that I bought my first watch, a Breitling B01 with the in house movement and all that jazz. Everything was fine for about 1 month until my Chronograph stopped working correctly and the watch was running about 15 seconds fast. I decided to send it in and get it repaired. Well 6 weeks later it came back "fixed". See during that time I lost confidence in my watch as did not want to use that chrono function anymore as risking another break would mean sending it back. Well I took it in to get appraised and the AD I took it to told me there is something wrong with the watch. When you wind it up it is very hard and offers a lot of resistance. Also the sound coming from it was not smooth it was almost like an old rotary phone. Needless to say I was able to get rid of that thing and get a Pam 320 pre-owned.

So on to the PAM 320. AWESOME watch so far. The features are amazing and I cant stop looking at the exhibition back. I chose Panerai because it hold its value ( i think ) and is overall just an awesome simple watch. It simple on the dial but pretty complex on the internals. Does this in house movement have problems that I should know about? Can anyone help out with setting the GMT hand? The straps/ease of changing them really appeals to me as well.


Thanks guys.

Ive owned a 351 for two years or so. I've had zero problems with it. The 320 is pretty much the same movement minus the power reserve, 12 hour GMT hand and I think the seconds reset on the 320. I ended up getting a base 112 as well. As for setting the GMT hand I would guess the first detent when pulling out the crown would adjust it.
