Crown Issue? 438 vs 1392

Hi Everyone,

Still very new to Panerai but have been reading extensively on Paneristi.com for about a year now and love everyone's passion.

We got our first Pams in December last year.

I have a 438 and my wife-to-be has a 1392.

My 438 takes approx 3x more effort to pull the crown out for any time/date adjustments as compared to hers

Any 438/441 or gmt owners that have this similar issue especially if it is a R-Series like mine?

I just really want to know if this is normal.

That doesn't seem right, both are fairly similar movements P.90XX >>>

I would guess that something might be misaligned or binding on your 438.

Definitely worth taking both watches to an AD or boutique and see what they say. I wouldn't let it go too long as you may encounter unnecessary wear and tear if there is an issue.

Good Luck!

Thanks for this Jesse.

I walked into 3 different AD's over the last 3 days. Asking to hold all the ceramic Luminor 1950's.

They were all like "Do you want to know the price?" I said "No, I just want to touch the crowns".

Hahaha, sounds like a watch pervert.

I don't think it is the model, just the personality, L0L

Although I got my 438 when they first came out, mine is perfection personified. Effortless all around. And so damn accurate it drives me nuts. Now my 360 . . pfew, I've lost thumb and forefinger fingerprints.
