What would you buy? 339 vs. 9a July 11 2012 at 4:03 AM Vinniebabarooch (Login vinniebabarooch) from IP address 184.108.40.206
I'm thinking of adding one of my grail pieces to my collection.
It's between the 339 and a 9a / pre 9a.
Which one would you pick and why?
More desirable in the future?
Thanks for your answers.

9A, better pre A 9 July 11 2012, 5:35 AM Farbod (Login Farbod007) 220.127.116.11
Pre A 9 is NBA July 11 2012, 5:43 AM
The 9 is D league, and the 339 is WNBA. Not that there's anything wrong with D-leagues or WNBA, just the NBA is where the maja playas play
but seriously if the price difference isn't a big factor t-Swiss-t, pvd, and fatty creamy numbers is where I'd go.

preA 9 all day long July 11 2012, 1:56 PM
While the 339 is a great watch with 8 Giorni + MM, the composite case just isn't classic Panerai. On the other hand, a preA 9 is nothing but pure classic Panerai. No contest for me.

339! =) July 11 2012, 3:10 PM
But only becasue the 9a would sit in my safe and not be worn. Anything that happens to the case can't be fixed, just remember that. Good luck Troy, beers this weekend? =)

I guess that can be said about the 339 as well...is this just old vs new school? July 11 2012, 5:47 PM
(Login tagrin) 184.108.40.206

Pardon me, seriously> July 11 2012, 6:21 PM
if you can afford and $ isn't a problem, go or a preA. If $ is an issue - go for the one that you like the most! Can't really compare the models you have mentioned...
Best of luck.

I probably should have left it at 339 vs. 9a.

a vote for Brownie July 12 2012, 2:04 AM
There are luminors, and pvd luminors, and t-dial luminors. They are lovely. But there are lots of them, and if you can't get the exact one you want, you can get an alternative.
There will never be another 339. Whether it's because there is no more "composite," or because there won't be anymore MMs (if that rumor is true), or whatever, the Brownie is unique. It is super light, it is a rad that wears like it's part of your wrist, and it's just plain hawt. The case color varies from dark brown, to black to almost purple hued. The dial is perfect, the faux patina complements the dial and case so well. :::swoon:::. That said, I wouldn't kick a 9 out of bed either. So, pick what you like.
