Response to 249 vs. 587
I've owned both Radiomir cases. Comparing just the two watches I'm a bigger fan of the Radiomir case (249) as oppose to the 1940 Radiomir (587) case.
The movement on the 249,in my opinion, is much nicer than the p.3000 in 587. However, if you are looking at a NOS 249, having the watch sit around for nearly a decade might not be good for the movement. Meaning expect to incur some servicing expenses. The 587s are relatively new.
Last but not least if you look at the 1940s Radiomir case, it's pretty much a luminor 1950s case less the crown protecting device. The lack of presence of the crown protecting device makes the 1940 Radiomir case a symmetrical case, which in my eyes looks a bit unconventional. Take it with a grain of salt. At the end of the day, get the one that sings to you the most.
If you like both equally, get them both. It's a buyers market for Paneristis.
