PAM 662 vs 685 vs 721 vs 931

Jun 23, 2020,08:17 AM

I am considering a 47mm Panerai. My biggest watch is the IWC big pilot that is almost 47mm.. so may be it can work out!

Different watches but all charming somehow! 
which do you like and why vs the others? 

You can pick only one smile

Thanks for your help smile

why? because of the dial ?

I do think so. [nt]

I echo this 100% [nt]

685 for me...

 By: sergio : June 23rd, 2020-08:34
for the hands and the fact that I don't like the ohters....much

grazie !

not entirely sure about the bezel but thanks for your feedback

The model is a perfect copy....

 By: sergio : June 23rd, 2020-08:47
from the original model produced in the 40ies..

LOL! [nt]

You have some nice choices there

 By: JohnFM : June 23rd, 2020-08:55
... all comparable, in that they are simple and large. My favorites are the 662 and 721. The 721 is my favorite design, but it does look very large on the wrist (large dial, smaller bezel). The 662 has great balance and a beautiful, rugged case and crown ... 

thank you John, this is really helpful.

 By: christianch : June 23rd, 2020-12:29
Also tend toward the 721. I thought the integrated lugs case would make it a bit more wearable than the 662 ?

I agree

 By: JohnFM : June 23rd, 2020-13:49
The 721 is a bit more comfortable with its smaller lugs. They’re all very big watches, but the 721 looks the biggest to my eye because the dial is so prominent. That said, it’s quite striking due to its simplicity and blue hands. It’s not big and bold lik... 

Between those...

I’d go for the 731 by a hair over the 662. My experience with my 720 tells me that it fits smaller even though the dial looks larger. It wears smaller for my wrist than the Big Pilot as well. No bad choices though. Kent

Agree that the 721 wears well

 By: JohnFM : June 23rd, 2020-10:04
It just looks big ;-)

good to know ! my biggest is the big pilot so if the 721 wears

 By: christianch : June 23rd, 2020-12:30
similarly it should be fine !

At least on my 7.25" wrist, the 721 is slightly more comfortable than the 5002

Both are great to wear.

I have the 662, the 721 and the 931

 By: India Whiskey Charlie : June 23rd, 2020-10:30
Love all three but the 721 would be my choice if I had to keep one.

wow great feedback

 By: christianch : June 23rd, 2020-15:55
since you have 3 of these interesting to see that the 721 is the favourite! thank you

Tough one

 By: Arronax : June 23rd, 2020-14:04
But most likely the 721. I love the 685 but it's the first to go due to 30m WR. Then the 931 too, I am not of fan of the color combo, unlike the 687. I tried the 662 many times but it's a very bulky watch and sits very tall on my wrist. 721 it is for me!

thanks for your input, I didn't notice the 30m on the 685

 By: christianch : June 23rd, 2020-15:59
that is indeed not a great feature for such a watch.

I cannot answer that 🤪...

You wear the 662 and 721 enough to probably be due for replacements ;-)

thank you for the photos ! wow and congratulations. From the pics

 By: christianch : June 23rd, 2020-15:59
the 721 seems to sit better on the wrist

685 or 721 because of the Black Sandwich Dial

 By: biw : June 23rd, 2020-19:16
This is my preference. I like the combo of gold colored hands on a black sandwich dial (685). The blue hands are also a great combo with a black sandwich dial (721). ...

The first photo is mine, the second photo is not. The 663 in the photos is IMO one if the most beautiful modern PAMs, and thus the 662 would also qualify as such. Good luck with your decision! ...  

Another convincing photo I found in my hard drive
