PAM 392 - 42mm Luminor 1950 Case

Post by RALAustin » Thu Jan 19, 2012 3:51 pm

I had looked at the PAM models the day they came out and did not see anything that really moved me, but I now see there is a 42mm Luminor 1950 included, the PAM 392. This one really intrigues me. I have had three 40mm Luminors and could never quite get over the fact that they were almost as tall as they were wide, but 42mm sounds awesome on paper and I will definitely be looking for real world pics of this one. This should be a link to it.

The 312 wears very large for 44mm so this new size may solve that problem for lots of people. All the tiny Asian dudes will continue to buy the 47mm models.

Unfortunately for your patients, you have a good sized wrist Rahul.

IMO, the 312 wears nearly as tall as it is wide. The 372 on the other hand is very balanced, and the best watch P has ever created.

Oooo. This one passed me by - I completely missed it.

It's a bit boring, but the 42mm size is a huge plus for me. I'll keep my eye on that.

I am wondering if the lugs are 22mm or 24mm. Cannot tell from the pics. 22mm lugs would definitely be of interest to me.

Probably 24.
This needs a brown dial, though.

:1:

It looks more like a 24 based on the photos at least.

And I agree, Jay. It'd look great with a brown dial and gold hands, ala the 351. I'd be even happier if they took this case and did other things with it, like a 42mm 233 or 243. :excited:

not familiar with all the PAM numbers... is this just a smaller 312?

interesting that at the same time Rolex is moving up a few MM that Panerai is moving down a few MM...maybe the industry is evolving to a more homogenous size?!?

If anything Panerai is moving up (99% of releases at SIHH were 47mm). This one is an outlier.

true - should have clarified my thoughts that this is not across the board now, but may be a harginger of things to come?
or maybe I need to cut back on the coffee today

P.S. the 392 is gorgeous

If it's using the P.9000, it's gonna be a real hamburger on the wrist.
