I have the same watch, PAM 241 and I love it. I changed my strap to Panerai brown/cordovan croc strap, because I didn't like the grain of the black one up close. I was told you cannot buy it the way I wanted it so I had to buy the watch with the black strap and then buy the brown strap. Also, the straps are VERY easy to change for a deployment clasp. One more thing, the 241 is a 40mm watch, which I need because I have the wrists of a 10 year old girl, but it also is not as sought after currently as the 44mm models.
