    Posted this comparison of the old and new style OEM rubber straps in a few places, thought I'd share here as well for those that may not have seen it.

    Thanks for looking!

    Personally, I prefer the old-style PAM rubber strap (the one with "Officine" on one side and "Panerai" on the other)..

    Nice comparison. I think the model you buy will also dictate which strap you get as my 312 came with the older style rubber strap.
