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.聽
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聽
  • sub second and date complication
  • brushed ESteel case
  • 300m water resistance
  • 3 Day power reserve
  • Limited edition 1200 pcs. (Single digit serial#)聽
  • 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.聽

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

Man, that's a Beauty 馃!

A bit of a tank for my 6 1/4 inch wrist but nevertheless a Beauty 馃ぉ.

If this is how it makes you feel when you see it, then do it!

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鈥檒l have to take this into consideration. Thanks!

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

Since, the OP asked for an opinion, I will say: 聽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鈥檛 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! 馃檹馃檹馃檹

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