Love the Speedy Pro, but we're talking a massive price difference (>$1200 for the cheapest, >$2000 for the others). And the Planet Ocean is too big, see below

Yes, the midsize, I have a very tiny wrist so anything above 38 or 39mm runs the chance of looking stupid. I do like the Aqua Terra. I'm leaning towards the Seamaster for the slightly sportier look.

I don't understand the concept of steel bracelet sport watches in any size under 40mm. It just looks wrong or some sort of children version of a sport watch. A 36-39mm dress watch makes sense to me, a 38mm steel diver, pilot or chrono doesn't. JMO of course.

I'm sure it would look odd on somebody like yourself, and up to this point I generally agree with you. But, what about on a wrist that is just over 5"? A 37mm sports watch doesn't look childish on my wrist, it looks more or less average. It's also for this same reason that I will never own a watch with a good number of complications (and believe me, I'd love to)

It is a lovely watch, I would be interested in knowing as well, but only so I can say to myself, "damn, I wish I had enough money to buy it."

Good decision on swapping the Panerai for the Deep Sea.

Holy mother of God, the Sea Dweller is water resistant to 3900m. Do you do much SCUBA diving at the bottom of the Atlantic?

All other merits of the Sea Dweller aside, I can't think of any reason why a watch would need to be water resistant up to 3900m, apart from being a non-functional gimmick. Just my opinion.

Yes it is. Its the Sarpaneva Korona K2 with some modifications that Stepan made for me.





A special modification that I requested was to have the Man on the Moon design added to the winding mass. This is in white gold. Stepan has one in rose gold to replace this so it better matches the rose gold movement plating. I am not sure if I should replace it.



I believe this is the only, if not the very first, K2 specimen with this winding mass.

One of the most pleasurable watches to photograph.



Bad pic comparison to a Panerai.

Actually I want it because I don't have to worry about it getting "wet" !!
Also, in my opinion, it is just the epitome of what "industrial grade" should look like!
