    If bond can wear a thick diver watch with a Tom ford suit then I think it’s ok in 2020 to wear a PAM243 for business. The watch means business. I think it looks cool with a dress shirt or even a tux. Just my opinion.

      I say go for it, you won't have a problem reselling either if you decide it doesn't fit right.
      Trying new pieces and finding out what suits your style is half the fun.
      I find the thickness and weight of a watch more important than diameter, it has to sit and not be top heavy/uncomfortable.
      my wrist is 19cm and would love a 187 but at 220g (ish) I know its too heavy for myself.
      Those pieces you are looking at are probably 170g

        Both will look fine.The thick bezels make them look big but they won’t be far off from your 308. They will be a little thicker and sit higher off your wrist than the 308.

          I must be a muscular short man. I have smaller wrists than you.

            If anything, pam064 without a strap and screws 148 g, while the chrono pams 44mm in steel are all about 120-125 g, depending on the model. About 243 - I don’t know yet ...

              The PAM243 is 148 grams.

                Thank you for adding that, in general, the weight is the same (given the accuracy of the kitchen scale) and a different strap can minimize the difference between 1000m. panerai and chrono 44mm. So the weight in the wearing process will not play a decisive role.

                  I think you’re shaming me into buying another watch.
                  OK, fine I’ll do it, if I ever see another 187 I’m going to go for it. Not because I want to, just to prove I can handle that monster. ????

                    Damn, I missed that one. I normally make an effort to know the rules, but I failed on this one, so do apologize.

                      Well the scale I used at the time was one calibrated to traceable standards then I averaged 10 readings to reach the final result though a kitchen scale will probably do just fine (I was in the office, newly purchased weighing scales arrived, it was fate ).
