Its 42mm size makes it more wearable, at least it would be for me.  However, I'm not a fan of the date.  I find it detracts from the dial and overall design.

For me, looking at PAMs is generally more enjoyable than trying them on.  I think they make some great looking sport watches, but I've never found them to be very comfortable, so its a bit of a let down for me.

Quite a common thing from Panerai followers (date gets in the way).

Thanks Dino - interesting observation.

Yup they're pretty comfortable for me too. Would love to own a Rad one day.

Alas, my OCD need to look at my watch for the date every hour prevents me from owning any watch without one. I prefer the non-cyclops dates on the newer PAMs for sure. I think they did a good job with the p9000 movements.

lol, my 112 is the first watch i have ever had without a date. even after almost 3 months i still glance at it numerous times during the day to check the date.

its always ffffuuuu.gif and then i check my cell phone. but i find the watch much more pleasing aesthetically without the date.

My brother has a 112 also and I definitely find it very awesome - a Luminor that is distinctly different from my 312. I can definitely understand why you think the dial is more balanced without the date

Cheers

But they have the 40mm out now; just for guys with smaller wrist! You gotta try one onfing02[1].gif

post #16737 of 35608

I've seen them in person yet, but never tried them on.

 

it's funny, just the other day after being inspired by dino I went to my AD to try on a RO. They didn't have them, their sister store does. So I will make a trip to try on panerai and AP RO in the coming weeks

Lol +1. Date is usually a basic requirement for me, but the Panerai dial is most aesthetically pleasing to me in its base form. The only thing I dislike about the 190 is that the small seconds dial replaces the "9."

They had a 40mm watch out years ago and I tried it.  I didn't notice a comfort improvement over the regular sized PAMs that were 42 & 44.  Also, I don't think I would purchase what might be considered a "Mid sized" PAM, as if I ever got tired of it and wanted to sell/trade it, its smaller size would probably reduce its resale value and/or reduce the ease of finding another buyer.  I really like the design of the Luminor but I think its just not a watch for me.
