A few quick photos for you maybe take some more when I have the time. Love the watch, probably the best choice I could have made!

Very nice 8-)

Reading through your other thread I think you made the right decision. The Zero is a lovely classic watch (one of my favourites), but the 1950 style case and in-house movement of the 312 takes it up a level IMO.

Enjoy ;)

100% agreed with Toshi - the 312 is an outstanding choice!

Cheers guyz.

Have to say I absolutely love the 312. I've got it on the rubber today but I love the croc as well so I'm sure i'll be swapping between the two.

Talking about straps do Panerai do the rubber straps in different colours? I would definently buy another if they do. I've looked at a lot of the different straps on the net these last few weeks but I'm not a big fan of all those 'chunky' things, don't see the attraction myself.

Anyway really beautiful watch, so different compared to my B's, much plainer but I would definently say more elegant.

One thing that has dissapointed me when buying a £4500 watch, why don't they give you an extra buckle with the 2nd strap? Surely that wouldn't be too much to ask!! I found it a total pain in the arse trying to remove the screw which made the quick change system a bit slow! :x

Cheers

Andrew

Panerai charges around $200 for a buckle, so if they gave you a free buckle with the watches, they wouldn't be able to make a few extra bucks off ya ;) Unlike Breitling that charges only $25 a buckle!

Great choice indeed! ;)

Perhaps you should give one of the chunky aftermarket straps a try. It might look different to you in person compared to online pictures.

I would imagine thats probably true GX so i'll give it a go shortly. I would kinda like something sporty so anyone got any suggestions? ;)

The 312 was my first PAM and I love it. Like you, I am looking of other OEM straps. Got a brown OEM croc and am looking for other synthetic or rubber straps for water play. Let me know if you find anything.

Cheers

Great looking watch. My first was a 351M. I actually prefer the rubber strap in terms of comfort. I was surprised with the thickness of the 1950 case. I have not gone "strap shopping" yet but plan to.

Not all the 1950's case are that thick.. but the automatic winding 9000 series movements tend to be thicker. If you get one of the in-house manual winders they are MUCH thinner.

Did they include the rubber for you?

Most only include one strap, leather or rubber.
