    Thanks. I've noticed that local jewelers don't have nearly the selection that online sites have... and I am particular about stuff like this. :eek:


    Well, I'm all ears. I was thinking Bund because it would give the watch some more "body" if you will. The lugs are 19mm.

    find a place that sells luxury watches. one of the places here has offered on a few occasions to hook me up with custom strap orders for a few of my watches. find the dude in charge of the watches and pick his brain a bit. person to person interaction is the way i like to go for these types of things. but hey, thats just me.

    either way, good luck. :fonz:

    It's great. I like the hands and dial of the 372 better than the 127. But I like the 127 case a lot more, particularly the shape and brushed finish

    The brushed finish case of the Fiddy is awesome and I wished Panerai had continued that with the 372. However, I love the base 47mm model and the gold hands.

    It doesn't feel as big as the Fiddy either.

    Sorry, I don't mean to offend, but that watch looks huge with dress clothing. I'd wear it with sport shirts and jeans and get a thinner more elegant watch to go with dress clothes. Just my humble opinion. What does the forum think about watch size? The trend is huge, not necessarily my taste. To each...

    There's no such thing as "what the forum thinks" , we all have different opinions. Mine is that it all depends on wrist/watch/cuff proportions but I'm not against a larger sport watch with a sport coat or suit.

    A topic that's as old as watch fora by the way - and probably discussed every single time someone posts a 42mm+ watch... yawn

    Moo that is a cool vintage piece... and some of my favorite pieces are those I got from my grandfather as well. Great vintage and a great story behind it but (please don't take offense here...) am I the only one who is reminded of the "watch scene" in Pulp Fiction with Christopher Walken? It even kinda looks like that watch. :lol:

    It looks much better than the one in Pulp Fiction. But I see what you mean.

    Moo, that's truly a great vintage watch. Dial is simply perfect

    I see no reasons to have a problem with the spacer. A larger case is necessary to make the 1/10 second display legible IMO. As for the 38mm, just buy a vintage A386.
