some one whose opinion and
knowledge I respect mentioned
in a conversation we had that
he'd discourage some one to do it
if they were going to.

I love mine and its held up well
to all kinds of peripheral hits
due to kid play.

I'm not interested in beer dunking
but if some one tried that .....

explicitly not to put the 339 in salt water in order to prevent against possible discoloration. I probably wouldn't risk it and go with a G Shock instead.

What I know about metallurgy can be written on a mini-post it, but the little I've gleaned from internet engineering and investigating the ceramic or titanium coatings of aluminum has been very successful with the major manufacturers of marine out drives and engine parts ie Volvo and Merc, and pump housings made for salt water use.
Although I do not the know the exact process of the 339 cermamized aluminum, the process of a ceramic coating is widely used to prevent corrosion in salt water.
If anyone does the exact process, I would welcome the info.
The exact process used by Panerai will help us to better understand the durability of one very special watch..the 339MM

My understanding with salt water is that the issue is not structural with respect to the case coating but with the discoloration. I was warned not to submerge in salt water to avoid further discoloration and I wouldn't risk it if I didn't have to. I was also told that it's possible to re-dye the case if it gets really fugly.

Ammo straps work best. But the second keeper might get loose.

I know of a friend who owns a 339 and the caseback had discoloured due to sweating. So Im assuming that the sea water would even be worse?

Both in the ocean and the pool (which Nad can attest to as it was at the hotel at the Montreal GTG).
