I wouldn't give up my 217 to buy a 368. But I love love love the 368. Remember, they're not really the same; Ti v. SS, Brown dial v. Black, 8 days v. 3 days, etc. Hard to debate that the MM dial is super classy and that the 217 oozes Panerai. But the 368 wears so comfortably and is so versatile... you really can't go wrong. I also would point out that you can get a 368 and a nice second watch for what you'll pay for a 217.
