    I always ditch the loose keeper as I don't need them either.

    Dave, thanks a lot. Totally inspired you and Heru's acquisitions :) You guys deserve some credit!

    I knew I should have started my own " got the panerai 312 " thread as Bo did. I guess I was being conservative haha.

    With my wrist size, I have the keeper in the third hole, too, and find the fit very comfortable..

    I did order extralong straps (rubber + the black croc w/ white stiching), but once I tried them out on the wrist, they were far too large (keeper in the second last hole)...

    I think that I will get a Ted Su Dive Strap for my PAM 312 later on..

    This strap has a buckle that lets you adjust the strap 100 % perfectly onto your wrist (comes in handy in the summer!) since the buckle simply locks the strap in any position once you press it onto the strap after having made the strap slide to a comfortable position... :thumbsup:

    That does look sleek and much more economical than a $3,000 SS bracelet.

    Yes, and it is water resistant! :thumbsup:

    AFAIK, there is an OEM Panerai dive strap availible, too, but it's grey and (as far as I recall) comes only with the PAM 243..

    Here are more pics...

    The buckle IS huge, though... :thinking:

    Yah the buckle is too huge.

    Why are you looking for a strap when it comes with a perfectly usable rubber (water proof not even water resistant strap).

    Bo, Saif,
    Strapitis is incurable (thankfully) but it can be sated by the occasional strap acquisition. Ted Su, Rob Montana, and Heroic 18 are some of the suppliers that can help lessen the cravings, temporarily of course. :rofl:

    For further resources see the list of a few of the strap makers in this forum.
    :lol:

    Looking at the sizes quoted with the Ted Su strap it looks to be the same size as the one you are on about Bo, I have just measured 32mm on my wrist and it is huge, too big for me Im afraid.
