Thank you all for your opinions. I tend to agree with you all that stated stick to original.
Since I started collecting Panerai, in 1998, I never sold a piece so far. I tried but honestly, never gotten more than what i paid for, unless I want to get rid of the bronzos/bluzo i have.
I want to but the watch to wear it often and replace my DDS, which I would still wear from t2t.
i wonder if the emotional value of the "original" is just in my mind...as on my rest, i can't tell the different .
That would be similar to my 26k and 26b. no one can tell the difference, unless you flip the watches and look at the case number.
decisions, decisions, decision....
