Panerai SIHH 2013: PAM 512 Luminor 1940 42mm

For a person with a small wrist, a 44mm PAM is the most my wrist can take without looking completely silly.

The 512 at 42mm in the eyes of purists it should be its historic 47mm.  It utilises the 1940's style Panerai case.  I like it for its smaller size and will definitely consider adding it to my collection.
