It is for the purest. I guess to me like the 372 it represents all that I associate with Panerai. I love the clean Tobacco dial. Not everyone gets Radiomir, but to me its a lot like the 1950 case on the 372, quiet, historical and elegant in the simplicity. I love the fact it has a solid case back too.
The 190 is gorgeous piece too, completely different watch. Quite dressy, with a great movement but not as central to the meaning of Panerai for me.
Just my two cents.
