    They should do a new slogan: "Sottomarino, larger than Invicta!"



    EDIT: there are a couple designs they do, and did, that I like for the money but the only one I actually bought is that Strumento Gauge. It's such a hassle for European peeps to order there. I always liked this one too, the Siluro, with that funky sandwich dial:

    What have you done with the nylon strap? If you are selling it, I may be interested, if it is 24 mm wide at the lugs. Thanks!

    Total into the watch... $60.



    Did you read the instructions are you sure it was not meant as a wall mounted timepiece ;-0

    Now that's a real man's watch! I'd wear it in a heartbeat if it had a date complication, can't handle life without one.

    Perhaps match it with some long sleeves? Not dress shirt but like a bomber jacket?

    Pretty cool man! I feel like it should double as one of Batman's "toys."

    Both very nice looking. I'm sorry I didn't get the Strumento during the big Precision Time sale. It looks super big but also looks good.

    I have that scifi PAM homage, very nice watch. Paid $50 for it at the local PT outlet on clearance.

    Looks proper to me! "Too big" IMO is when the lug to lug measurement is greater than the width of your wrist.

    It looks perfect your wrist. The leather strap is a great add-on
