So I am down to two choices, the Rad 183 or the Luminor 177 which is a Titanium model. Anyone have a Ti model? Thoughts?"Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds." Albert Einstein

Had a 57 for years and loved it. In fact, I'm gonna try and buy that one back at some point.
Its got a great lightness to it. Very comfy. It can show dings and smudges a bit more, but I think that adds character to a Panerai.
As far as your two choices, they are very different, besides the material. Lum vs Rad; Dress vs casual...Un-Retired

I have a PAM176 and I love it. Nice size without the weight - Still has plenty of wrist presence. The darker color allows it to work with a ton of different strap choices and it's cool to not see them around as frequently as their SS counterparts.'12 JEEP SAHARA UNLIMITED - Current

My dad just picked up a Pam352. He loves it. He did swap the braclet out and added a rubber strap to mix it up.

Personally I find titanium pieces to be too light for my liking (though my latest Proteus is made of titanium it is still heavy enough for me to like)... though some may find light watches to be a pro, I tend to like some heft/weight on my watches. Good luck.
