Small wearing luminor

Thinking again about getting a luminor. I have gravitated to smaller watches and wondering if there are any refs out there that wear small. Sandwich w/ seconds preferred

PAM01033 imho. Clean sandwich dial, with seconds hand and the '9' as well. Visit an AD and try it on. The short lugs greatly benefit guys like myself with smaller 6.75" wrists. Another benefit is no 'wrist slop' as the band hugs the sides of my wrist and so stays flat and centered.

I've tried the 42 and liked it. The 38 looks great IMO, try it and see.

Just my opinion, but if you’re looking for a small watch, look elsewhere. The 38mm are honestly really strange looking; tiny and delicate. I finally took the plunge a few years ago and now have a 44mm 233, which feels just perfect. It’s all about trying them on.

I have a 6.75" wrist and own a PAM105...but don't do it! It wears huge and doesn't get a lot of wrist time for me. here's a pic. It doesn't look that big, but because of the thickness it really sticks out. When I first got it I banged it on a lot of doorframes. (positive side was that it helped teach me good wrist presence)

That said, a friend of mine picked up one of the Luminar Due models with a blue dial, and loves it immensely. I don't know the model number, but it looks perfect on his similarly sized wrist.

I recently purchased a PAM1392 Luminor. I tried on the Due. Felt way too light. I then tried the PAM1048 - was too shiny, too top heavy, quite thick.

The dealer then recommended the 1392 - 42mm, and fairly thin using the 9010 movement. Fit like a glove on my small wrists. I wanted something same size as my GMT Master II (Ceramic) - and it sits quite nicely. I bought it off Chrono24 and got almost 2k GBP off the RRP.

Now i'm struggling to choose wearing this, or the GMT Master II
