If you want a true DNA panerai, there can only be one, the PAM372 or 557 if you are a leftie.

111 or 005 (111 for sandwich dial) manual wound. 312 auto + date, 320 and 233 add GMT (these three have the '1950' case)

If you want 2 hands (Base) then 112 or 000

All of the above are 44mm

For 47mm, take a look at the 422 or 372

PAM 111...perfect size, I feel like the 47mm models are way too big.
