Panerai looks good on everyone even ladies with very slim wrists go for it

Yeah. It's arms length from where I'm taking it.

I like it. Big watches are supposed to look big.

Great watch!

As for fit, tough to tell in that pic with the sweater and arm angle. If the lugs overhang, I'd give it a good hard think before buying.

Hard to say from that pix but it looks too big for your wrist.

But its how you feel that matters.

I have learned with experience that if you have to ask, you know the answer. I have made several purchases after asking the same question and ended up flipping all of them. Even though the community says it fits and I even agree although it is on the borderline. After several months with it, I come to the conclusion that I want a good fitting watch, not an borderline fitting watch.

As others have said, really need to see it from a bit further away and with your sleeve rolled up.

Great looking watch though

It's probably not the answer you want to hear, but judging by those pics I would say no. It looks like there is significant lug overhang. Sorry man

A better way to judge via pictures is to:
- stand in front of a mirror,
- hold your arm parallel to your waist
- point the camera toward you, using the mirror to align it
This will give a truer picture of the fit on the wrist. Almost all shots pointing directly at the wrist exaggerate the size of the watch.

Or, just try a selfie.

E.G.,

Yup, agree with this. When I tried a 47mm PAM, it looked HUGE from the picture I took straight on my wrist. (6.25" wrists).

But now that I think back on it, when I tried on a SevenFriday (even more absurdly large due to case shape), the AD guided me to a full-size mirror which actually made the watch seem much more reasonable.

That said, the OP's PAM looks better on his wrist than it did on mine from the same picture and similar angle.

I like the watch but I don't like the branding.. I prefer something named 'Panerai' on the dial. This whole 'Marina Militare' trademark was done pretty recently and there are tons of homage watches out there with that name already!
