Panerai BraceletsJanuary 24 2005 at 10:38 AM

I am considering a swap for a Panerai with a bracelet, and am thinking about it from a value proposition.
I really like the Panerai bracelet and the way that it feels on the wrist. I just can't help but think that a $2200 +/- premium for the bracelet itself isn't a bit steep considering that there are (apparently) aftermarket options that can be fit to a "strap" watch with the correct adapters.
Does anyone have any thoughts about the Panerai bracelet? Aesthetics?, Value? Historically have the models sold with bracelets held their value relative to those sold without?
As an aside, when did Panerai come out with the bracelet models, and does anyone have an insight on the reason considering that they do not fit the "historical" strap model?
A lot of questions, and I'll take any answers/thoughts/comments you all might have to offer.
