If you look at the right hand side of the watch leading to the crown guards, you must surely notice there is more metal and the right hand lugs are also wider and not tapered like the SS Daytona??

This is FACT not my opinion!
Yes, I have seen that for quite a long time and most yellow Gold Daytona's are the skinnier version. I would not buy a PM Daytona unless it was the thicker sexier model...

That's a great example of what I try to emphasize the difference between these two models. Contoured lugs definitely makes a huge impact on the quality. of craftsmanship too.

The Platona case is larger than the SS. There is a larger "gap" between the pusher and the dial.
