and ended up with the 425.
I've had a PAM 24 for years and always wanted a Rad to help round out the collection. I was never in a position to buy any of the LE historical re-issues, but loved the look of the 249, 448/9 etc. Looking at pictures, I loved both the 424 & 425. I hemmed and hawed until I finally walked into an AD that had both. Seeing them both on the tray and on my wrist, the decision was clear. 1) the additional writing/lume/faux patina of the 424 made it, to me, more sporty and less refined 2) the 425 is a little dressier and I liked that, as I wear it regulatory with a collared shirt & sport-coat 3) no issue with the pig on the dial (or for that matter the non-LE status & details).
So that was my journey, but depending on what you like and how you'd wear them, you may end up with a different decision. But enjoy the trip. And congrats regardless of where you end up!
