First PAM incoming - 973 Submersible





Iíve always dug the aesthetic, but I tend to stay away from 44mm-plus these days, so I had never tried on any of the Panerai models until very recently. The 1950s case is definitely my speed.

I like the brushed stainless steel on the 973 and itís a relatively svelte 13.22mm thick. Extremely comfortable on the wrist.

Love the strap, but Iím looking forward to throwing it on some different NATOs and whatnot. Fun watch!

Love the new Submersibles. Seriously, I think it was great that Panerai broke it out of the Luminor line.

Congrats on the grab, and enjoy it in good health!!

Congrats!

I had a 682.
The 42 Subs are a great size.

Congratulations that's a great first Panerai.

My Pan is getting moe wrist time than any of my other watches at the moment.

Plus you're bang on the number; enjoy changing the straps around as it totally changes the dynamics of the watch. You cannot beat the Pan strap market. It's like getting a new watch every 6 months.

Enjoy and wear in good health.
