I put this in the safe where it usually sleeps and put a white SS Daytona on for the rest of the day....much, much more comfortable. I am 6'1, 225 with 7.25-7.5" wrists, so not a little guy. My 43mm DSSD is as tall as the 44mm 312 but it wears a lot smaller. The back of the 312 just doesn't agree with my wrist at all. Sorry, i cant educate on the Pre-V etc as I dont know it well. I just asked Simona to send me 6 different straps and she made some nice ones and sent them over.
