if you've got something to say please reserve it for the case back. The crystal is super cool, I wonder if this watch will even be sold to the public. What is strange to me is that they completely re made the original sea dweller into the deep sea and only a few years later made an even deeper sea, this seems a bit redundant. Why don't they just re-issue the original sea dweller 4000 and then off this as an instrument? The current deep sea just never did it for me, mainly because of the tapered bracelet and again the stupid ring around the dial....

to a model that they sent into the Mariannas Trench back in the 70s that is still today too large to sell to the general public. I think this version is an update, that they sent on James Camerons recent expedition in a nod to the past. Im sure that this was fun for their research and development teams to try out some new things that may be used in future models. Maybe if there is enough buzz about this model it will come out to the general public, I for one am not a huge fan of the crystal, but maybe seeing it in person would change my mind. IMHO-MIKE

The DEEPSEA Challenge watch is 28.5mm thick compared to the case on the standard DEEPSEA which is 17.7mm thick. Also, the synthetic sapphire crystal on the standard DEEPSEA is 5.5mm thick, whereas on the DEEPSEA Challenge it is a whopping 14.3mm thick!!! This Superdome gives this watch a very retro look!!!

In historical terms, it is the heir of the 1960 experimental DEEP SEA SPECIAL, which dived to the bottom of the Mariana Trench with the bathyscaphe Trieste to a depth of 10,916 meters (35,814 feet).

Just some info i found online for anyone interested-MIKE

I mean it has absolutely not function and if anything is distracting. I think its a cool idea, I mean I wouldn't buy one, I'd be more interested in an updated version of the SD 4000.

It is distracting, I sold my DSSD to put towards my 194 and couldn't be happier, although the DSSD is a great watch-MIKE

28.5mm thick. That is over an inch thick!

I don't think I've ever dived farther than a whopping 12 feet, but I really want a PAM 193 on a metal bracelet, although I guess I could settle on this instead.

They can strap the watch to the outside of the sub to see if it survives while wearing a Panerai on the inside :-D

Even my old Submariner bracelet is just a little bit too narrow for that case. "Rule of thirds" doesn't apply, that's for sure!

2013, to see what Panerai has to offer as far as Subs. But after looking at this, this will do. Very nice.
