Submersible QuarantaQuattroESteel Blu Profondo. Should I Pull the Trigger?

My friends, I am at a dilemma. To buy or not to buy? Any feedback and/or opinion is appreciated. 
I had intention to add a PANERAI to my collection for some time. And I had visited the PANERAI boutique several times this year but never pulled any triggers. Got a call few days ago for a 2022 novelty piece. I just visited the boutique today to have a look at the piece - Submersible QuarantaQuattroESteel Blu Profondo.

  • 44mm
  • P900 Calibre 
  • sub second and date complication
  • brushed ESteel case
  • 300m water resistance
  • 3 Day power reserve
  • Limited edition 1200 pcs. (Single digit serial#) 
  • solid case back
  • USD 11K

It does come with additional blue rubber strap. I am a sucker for nice serial number and this piece is a single digit serial number. 
 

Should I pull the trigger? Or look at other alternatives?

Thanks bro for the comment. Actually I have the same wrist size. When I tried it on my wrist, it lugs are right at the edge. Hmmm, I’ll have to take this into consideration. Thanks!

That‘s the thing. There is a feeling but not strong enough, else I wouldn't post the question here...of course I‘ll still have to make the final call. Just gathering some thoughts here…🙏

Hmmmm...  well, for 11k USD, you could get one of these 2 instead, then!

That is just the sort of thing a hot watch chick would say.

Since, the OP asked for an opinion, I will say:  no, too big.

Thank you all @SimplyVintageWatches @HotWatchChick69 @Aurelian for all your comments and opinion. I think I was blindsided by the serial number of the watch. It is a beautiful piece but just too big for my wrist. Mainly because of the lug-to-lug width - it was right at the edge of my wrist and doesn’t tapper down as much when I wore the watch. I had replied to the salesperson that I would give it a miss and thanked him for his time for showing me the watch. And thank you again for taking time to comment and reply to my post. It is much appreciated! 🙏🙏🙏

Yes it does. Also the fact that it has 5-day power reserve.
