The watch seems to be huge, I immediately had to measure its diameter with my plastic caliper, I remembered 42 mm ... but this watch seemed to be so big, I just had to measure again. And yes, the diameter without crown is 42 mm. I guess the lack of a thick bezel and the height of 14 mm plus the convex crystal plus the heavy weight give the impression of a much larger watch. I was immediately reminded of a Panerai. Meeting regularly with Jose ensures me to see all sorts of exclusive Panerai models. This Axis Limited Edition in reality exceeded my expectations by far. I know it might be hard for you to follow my enthusiasm, given the fact, that these pictures can really not even come close to doing the beauty of the watch justice.
