Please forgive the poor quality photos, but I had not touched my camera in over six months and, during the interim, I forgot how to use it (I took these two photos in the completely wrong mode).

Here is a comparison of case finishes of the Panerai 317 Ceramic, 360 PVD and 172 Tantalium:



Interestingly, the case finish on the 360 PVD is closer to the color of the 172 than the 317. The 317 is a true black, whereas the other two are shades of grey.

360 alone:



Because I did not expect to receive a 360, I did not have a strap ready for it. I have two being made.

Craig, is the bezel on the tantalum SS?

Also, I think the JV strap would be hot on the 360.

And, as always, superb collection.

Dear god that 317 looks so good, and the blue accents on the 172 make that watch! Gorgeous collection, you've got really good taste.

Now, question is which one is your favorite???

Maybe I'm alone on this...but I like the 172 the most out of the three.

Ceramic is cool...but a bit too dark. PVD is awesome, but have seen too many of those, I mean look at how many PVD/DLC models Panerai has made. Now, the Tantalium has the very unique shade. Panerai should bring back the Tantalium case:wink:

Highly unlikely. The tantilum case is very hard to make and Panerai was burning through bits at a furious pace to make the 172 (and 192). I have been told that we will not see another tantilum case.
