Response to thoughts about the Bettarini case
Four out of the first five PAMs that passed trough my hands we Bettarini cases. 1 and 2 were Ti Bettarini cases, 4 was a PVD Bettarini and 5 a Steel Bettarini. I think for this reason alone when I think of Panerai it is always of the Bettarini case. The only PAM I hold today is also a Bettarini (PVD) and that's no surprise.
For me I just like the design, the lines, and the 44mm better than anything else in the line-up. I don't think I'd thought about it much before but I agree with you that the Ti in particular highlights the case lines a little more. For me, my preference towards Ti and PVD was wholely based on the dullness versus the Steel and the watches seeming a little less "blingy'".
