No 44mm ceramic bezel submersible?

Maybe I missed it? Thinking of adding a pam back to collection. I previously had the 312 and 233. I really like ceramic bezel on sub, but only saw available on 47 and 42mm? The 47 wears large on my 7 inch flat wrist, but I think the 42 may be a bit small for this type of watch. Any help would b greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I don't think there's a 44mm Sub with a ceramic bezel.

I had a 682, and it didn't wear that small, and perhaps it'll be OK on your wrist.
But seeing your collection (SkyD, DSSD, YM2), the 682 will be relatively smaller, though I didn't think it was too significant a difference in diameter between my D-Blue and the 682. The 682 lugs are fairly long for the case size, so perhaps that help bridged the gap.

The wide, flat bezel 682 can show some daily wear marks, so a ceramic bezel would be a good way to go.

Jean-Marc has said in a couple of interviews that there will be no other sizes of submersibles than 47mm and 42mm in the foreseeable future.

I would at least try on the 1389 before ruling out the 47.

I think instead of all the ridiculous variations and case materials that Panerai is offering for the Submersibles, it might be nice to offer at least another 44mm Submersible in addition to the 1024. I know a lot of people like the 682, but I see A LOT for sale. I think offering a dive watch in 44mm would have made more sense for a brand known for large cases. I think a 44mm Submersible in a Luminor 1950 case would make a lot of sense. I could go either way with a steel or ceramic bezel.
