We are indeed talking about the Submersible. The 44mm one (pam24 if I remember correctly) is actually surprisingly wearable and not nearly as hefty as people think, because of the bezel. It would probably be a reasonable size, but I loved the 47mm big daddy (pam389)

Some of the 24mm straps were bloody big buggers though on the 47mm.

Good as the Pams are, the DSSD is far better suited to a "one watch that does it all" purchase and would certainly be the first one to buy. Then get the Pam 6months or so later! Image

How are you getting on with the PDSSD? Will be down your way in the next couple of weeks so you can compare.

I noticed Panzera watches whilst browsing internet sales the other day, not too up on them sorry but just remember my initial reaction being they seem Panerai inspired. The model was an aqua something if that helps.

I have a couple of C11's,

And a Extreme also, but for wrist presence they aren't in the same league, and shouldn't be based on price as my Pam 351.Image

If you do decide to go with a Panerai, I would stay with at least a 44mm or larger. They're supposed to be big and from what I've seen the 42mm command less in the resale market.
