    Iím not quite sure what you think youíve gained from all these threads, OP, but for what itís worth I would go for the Omega out of these two. Better finished, better engineering imo, better size.

    A good question.

    I have a modern Navitimer World worn on either leather or sailcloth. I have always been conscious that it has no screw down crown and chronograph pushers, and so I would never...

    There are certain features I think are just unacceptable in a Panerai, and which I would avoid.

    If ISOfranes work well for you but you cannot stomach the cost, I would echo the recommendation by vortgern for the Borealis version. It is 90% of the strap for 25% of the cost.
