DSSD owner considering a PAM 372 or 557

Hi all,

Hope everyone had a lovely holiday!

I'm JUST ABOUT to pull the trigger on a PAM557,
but can't find any comparison shots with a Rolex DSSD for size. Considering the PAM372 is so comparable to the PAM557, I was wondering if anyone had some side by side shots with the DSSD they could share to push me over the edge (or save me from making a mistake) ??

Thanks much,
Andrew

I just have the two models

If you can carry the DeepSea you can with the Left-Handed

Hi Pablo,
Thanks for sharing. Which one would you consider as more comfortable for every day ?
I have 2 44 mm Pams (000, 162) which despite size are very comfortable but still considering to add Dssd blue into collection.

Just to add I also have SubC date.

Thanks.

Will

Hi Will,
I do not see any inconvenience to use both watches for every day
The Rolex took it in the left hand and the Pam in the right
On more than one occasion I have used both at the same time

But I think the one I use the most is the DeepSea

Greetings from Spain

The Deepsea has been an excellent piece for me. I wear it frequently with a suit, and casually as well. Hoping to have the same versatility with the 557. If you have a photo, please share!

Best
Andrew

I have a DSSD and PAM389 (similar size to 557 you're considering) and really like them both.

They're dramatically different watches; both are comfortable to wear and have a nice spot in my rotation.

I have a D-Blue, Will. If you can rock a 44mm PAM, then the D-Blue will work fine on you. Just be sure to remove the diver's extension link for maximum comfort

Thanks Paul. This one is definitely on my list.

Sorry Andrew for hijacking your thread.
Have you pull the trigger yet.
If so please share some pics.
Cheers,

By the way. Do you own DSSD?
If so can you also post photos of both on wrist for comparison.
Thanks.

Yes, I do, as well as some other pieces that might be good comparison shots. Unfortunately I couldn't find any other such photos, so I guess I'll be the first to share!

Finally some comparison shots! I'd say that the 557 is closest in size to my Cartier Santos 100 XL Chrono, but that the SeaDweller Deep Sea is extremely comparable. Both pieces are much larger than the GMT Master. Hope this helps you all!

Thanks a lot and congratulations.

How's about thickness of Pam vs DSSD?

Could you share any photos?
