More realistically, an Elliot Brown Tyneham is high on my list.

YMMV.

Interested to see you are looking at a Panerai Neil.

The Due range, the model on the left, I believe has been met with comments from Paneristi of not being a "proper" Panerai due to the fact it has only 30m WR, compared to the normal 300m of the Luminor Marina. I do agree aesthetically it has a nice and slim profile.

Despite having a smaller wrist myself, I went for a 44mm Luminor Marina (PAM 510). The handwound 8 day PR movement is much slimmer than the Luminor 1950 automatics and wears much better than those exceptionally high autos. I agree the 44mm is still a large watch, but to me it is part of the appeal and uniqueness of the Panerai that is has some wrist presence and heft (if I had an 8" wrist I wouId definitely be going for one of the 47mm models). Also I know that my 44mm PAM is marginally less lug to lug than a CW 42mm C11 Makaira. As you say, YMMW, we all have different preferences (thankfully :) ).

That Submersible looks very nice.

^^^^ Yep Patrick the Paneristi certainly have mixed views on the Due. :)

To be fair my preference would be for 100m WR, but realistically I would still stick to a Rolex for swimming, so it’s a mute point.

I have tried on about a dozen different PAM models over the past 5 years, but similar to my Bremont flirtation I have never got over the line! :problem:

Anyhow I will be sticking to a, rather small to some, 39mm BB58 for my next watch. :D

Window shopping, as I was on Saturday, I think it will have to be a Submersible if ever I got a Panerai.

You mean you didn’t take a pic yourself when we tried them on at SQP... :)

Also still on my maybe list and like you it would be a SubC that I would probably move on (or GS and BBN).

I do still have the pictures Neil and I am also struggling to get this to leave the 'want' list. Damn close to perfect for me. Size, thinness, gorgeous textured blue dial and avery nice bracelet. Useable WR as well. Anyone want a sub? :D

Neil, I thought you were avowed to hang onto the fairly rare ETA BBN?

Imo though, monetary reasons aside, if you get the BB58 (which I recall you are planning to), I see that as quite similar to, and a slightly shrunk version, of the BBN.

I guess they are still working down the waiting list, as I had a call from the London boutique earlier today. I've decided it's not a watch I would keep (although I like it, I'm not mad keen on the Ultraman connection), so I would only buy it as a way of making a bit of cash.

The list price is £4750. Watchfinder are advertising at £7k+, so probably buying at £5.5k. The fact that Omega are still trying to sell the originals suggests this will not be a long-term 'hot' watch. All in all, probably a bit of a risky buy, so I'm going to pass.

I think that's a decent decision. I'm not engaged with it (or the Ultraman connection) sufficiently to make me regret missing out on the purchase direct from Omega and I certainly wouldn't pay the £7k+ that Watchfinder and other re-sellers are hoping for. I'd rather pay for a discounted Speedmaster Racing with the orange accents. But the first Speedy Tuesday is a different matter - that's a much much nicer watch and I do regret not having one of those.

That was my thought process too. Looks like they're getting sent out quite a lot quicker than the ST1 so there's probably a bit less fanfare/excitement as they're popping up regularly.

Personally I think it's a brilliant looking watch, which without the Ultraman link and the LE price tag would be an incredibly successful model.
