These spring loaded lugs are the best.As with most polished PAMs, the crown protector is polished, but the lever is brushed. Im not sure why they do it this way, but thats the way they do it. As this is a newer model, the lever has the little wheel on it as well. All nice little refinements that Panerai has worked into the models.Funny that Ive had this watch for two years and still never got around to writing up about it. I really enjoyed my Corum 163-150-20-0F05FZ30R Men's watch two years with the PAM90, but I am even more happy with my 320, and expect to enjoy the 320 for another couple of years when Im sure another Panerai will probably draw my attention. If you are not hung up about getting an in-house caliber from Panerai, the PAM90 is a fantastic choice with the offset power reserve indicator and sub-seconds.
