Panerai quick change system or screws

Which one do you prefer? I have one watch with screws and one with the push button system. I love how easy it is to change straps with the quick change system however, I always feel nervous that one of those little buttons is going to fall out. Is it just me or do others feel the same? I also wonder how many times you can change the straps before the system might fail. Maybe I'm just being paranoid after reading a few posts on this issue sad.gif

I prefer screws...

1. Historically relevant.
2. Less to go wrong as long as you are mindful not to strip your threads.

In fact, call me crazy, I believe I'd take springbars over the quick change system. Easy to operate and even less to go wrong.

While I do appreciate the ease of changing straps with the QC buttons, there have been more than a few stories of them failing with expensive consequences and/or having to send the watch to Switzerland for a repair.

If the repair could be carried out by any authorized Panerai service center at minimal cost, I'd be a much bigger fan of them.

The thought of springbars on a Panerai just feels wrong, but maybe I'll change my mind as a model that uses them is on the way. happy.gif

Yes I think the biggest issue is that the QC system cannot be fixed easly

I really like the quick change system. It made it much faster, easier and safer to>>

Change straps and much less likely to slip and damage the watch. Never had a single problem with the quick change system.

Paul, I'm just like you.

March 14 2017, 3:24 PM 

I have both systems and although I appreciate the quick change, I'm paranoid so I prefer the screws. Although the screws can fall out too, so nothing is foolproof.

3 screws and 1 quick change. Huge fan of my 233 quick change. To me that should be the standard.

Quick Change, but...

It's probably not a good design for salt water and I wish it were repairable.

You should be able to screw it out and replace it easily. Crazy bad design.

So nice changing a strap with it though - so nice!

What Craig said...

Quick Change is very nice and quick" albeit on watches that will not see saltwater. There has been some failures mentioned in the past that are not a cheap fix if the watch is out of warranty.


The screws are easy, tried and true. Really hard to "screw" happy.gif up.
