I know I am on a Panerai forum, but there is no forum as good as this on watches!! And off course I am also the very proud owner of a Panerai 320! I am so content with having a high end watch that I am looking to add my second watch... and I need your help!
I know that a lot of my fellow Risties are also into different brands and I also like the idea of branching out; for me I already own the perfect Pam (I know; for now until the P-bug bites again
). So I have been looking at Hublot and IWC Big Pilot. I like the different style of Hublot a lot, but it is a pretty " in Your face" kind of watch. For my line of work it is ok to have a distinctive watch, but not to much. And I really love the classic look of the Big Pilot: I tried it on and it looks great on my wrist!
I made the comparrison between the BP 5002 and 5005 and i like the 5004 best (just a matter of taste). My question is; the Big Pilot 5009 is comming to the market now and looks the same as the 5004. I understand that the only difference is in the torque of the crown, movement and looks are the same. The difference in price is roughly 20% so what would you advice me; a new 2012 BP 5004 or 5009?
Any other tips are welcome!
