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
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.

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

Look forward to seeing a post on your new model when it arrives

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.
Thats reassuring to know Gary

Maybe I need to relax a little
Paul, I'm just like you.

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.
Thanks Troy good to know it's not just me

A thousand removals without a problem speaks for itself

3 screws and 1 quick change. Huge fan of my 233 quick change. To me that should be the standard.
I'm a huge fan of it to quick and easy but then there is always

the fear factor
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!

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"

MY 24 has the QC system however, it will not be seeing any

Interesting point about salt water Craig particularly
