Pam 1392

Iím thinking of trading my 1312 for a 1392. After wearing my Rolexes for the last month or so straight, whenever I put on my Panerai, it just seems so big. Interested in your thoughts on this move. I realize itís not significantly smaller but it is 2mm thinner as well. Am I crazy?

I think if you wear the Pam for a couple of days straight it will begin to feel normal and the next time you put on your Rolex afterwards, it will feel small. It's just what you're used to wearing.

Only make the move to the 1392 if you truly like it better. Otherwise, give the 1312 a little more wrist time, it deserves it!

I agree about the Rolex vs Panerai. I wore my new 564 for a month but wore my sub today and it felt tiny. Itís all what youíre used to.

In my collection I go from 40 mm to 47 mm and when I transition over from on extreme to another I always notice the difference. In a few hours of wear it is better and a day later when I switch up I will feel just the opposite. Part of the fun of collecting.

Exactly the same here

OP, I enjoy the variety of wearing different sizes. The difference only lasts a short time for me and I adjust.

Here is what 47 and 40 look like on a flat 7" wrist.

I wouldn’t do it... 1950 Luminors look better at 44 than 42, IMHO. Enjoy the difference compared to your Rolexes: it’s good to have & enjoy choices.

Pam 1392

Ok so now I donít know what to do. How about a Manual wind 44, like this 590. Itís thinner than my 1312 and may lie flatter on my wrist. I do love the look of the 1392 better though, with the shiny hands and sandwich dial.

Ok I did it. Traded the 1313 for a 1329, and then also bought an older used 183. So I covered all bases. Iíll report back later if I end up liking the 42mm but for today I think itís going to work out well.

How do you like the new trade? Have you thought of PAM 233? - It sits quite low compared to the automatic movements.

Thanks for asking. Iím enjoying the 1392 a lot, I think itís going to work for me. Itís a good compliment to my Rolex GMT and after all, I also bought a used 183 the same time I got the 1392. So now I have a 42mm 1950s and a 45mm Radiomir, which is a manual wind, fairly thin case. Now I need to sell some 24mm straps. I have a bunch...
