    Gorgeous watch. If I were to pick nits, I'm not in love with the 12 numerals - but overall, a great looking watch

    It's a bit of a controversial element, and I fully understand why it would not appeal to all. To my eye, the "Big 12" balances visually with the large script and oversize subsecond dial. They do make other models with simple baton markers and a central second hand for those looking for a more traditional dial:

    great 312 and strap! If I have to pick an auto Panerai, I would probably go with the 312 or 320.

    Thanks Warren and stitches. I dont like my 312 as its just not comfortable to wear, something you dont quickly appreciate at the AD, though it looks very nice no doubt.
    In fact i went home at lunch today to get this watch off and back into the safe, it is 17 months old and I think worn maybe 10 days total. Strap is an aftermarket version of the OEM JV strap.

    Regards.

    :( what did you swap it for?

    how many mm is it, and do you have a smaller size wrist?

    also, could someone give me the low down on the big deal between pre vendome straps/buckles and the current ones?

    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. :embar:
    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.
