for comparison sake and to demonstrate the point, the Nixon here (old watch) is a 50mm, but because it is properly round, it wears about the same as the Panerai, maybe even slightly smaller looking in some ways.
And just for the sake of it. The omega is a 42mm, but with lugs that are a little closer together, resulting in them being pushed out a bit and making it wear bigger then a 42 with a thin case and wide lugs.
