Paul you could get away with wearing one of those.

Like all watch choices it’s a personal call.

The 512 is the closest I have come to buying a Panerai. Another near miss being a 42mm Submersible.

There are plenty with a wrist the same size or smaller who are happy to wear a 42mm or 44mm PAM.

Equally there are plenty with a slightly larger wrist, who still can’t get over the all dial style.

I know someone who used to view anything over 40mm as too big for his liking. IIRC he now has 3 or 4 Panerai, including the larger ones.

As to the 512, just imagine wearing a C11, with about 2mm off the lug to lug.

I'm not sure if you are referring to me in the quote above. However I can say that I sold my 39 Oyster Perpetual, my Omega Seamaster and my 6 digit Submariner because they were all too big.

Now I own 5 Panerai. 2 47mm, 1 45mm and 2 44mm. Love them all and love wearing them all. I find the 44mm Luminors a great size, the 45mm Radiomir feels almost like a dress watch being relatively thin and lightweight.

Thumbs up for Panerai from me :)

I was indeed Mark. :)

Although I haven’t looked on Instagram much lately and hadn’t realised you now have five.

I do like your pics. :thumbup:

This morning I was looking at pics and a video of a 687.Thinking could I?

I love that you sold a 40mm sub for being too large but now have a couple of 47mm PAMs!

You are a bona fide ‘risti 8)

It does sound a bit barmy but... it's not just the size. It's how it sits, how it feels on the wrist and how it makes you feel. I would classify myself as a 'risti 8)

I know what you mean. I dismissed the Luminor as too large and brash until I eventually tried one on and was hooked.

Might be worth starting a separate thread, Paul?

The Omega Skyfall is my "Grail" watch at the moment. I seem to always just miss them...

It's always a sapphire speedmaster for me, but 4000 plus is such a lot to spend.

That's indeed a looker - not sure about the style of the bracelet. On my quest for color(still looking for something with either a white, green or brown dial), I still have the 556 on my long list.

The Mocha dial 556i is stunning, I got one when they first came out. I've got the blue dial one now but I think the mocha was just a little bit nicer
