Hello Ifraher: I understand your point. Though Panerai is historical caracterized by the big 47 mm size and Paneristi don´t see with satisfaction any variant smaller than that, but truth is that...
... there exist a large market of possible buyers who love their classic designs but don´t buy 47mm watches due to their personal tastes or small wrists.
To capture this segment of market Panerai has been launching their smaller sized lines some time ago, and I feel that sooner or later they will offer a watch like the one you are looking for. They already have the case and also have the manual movement: P-1000 hand winding.
I bought a Pam 933 a few years ago for my wife: an special Boutique edition with a gradient blue dial and an automatic movement and 42 mm case. Of course you want a manual winding movement and a black dial but I bring it here just to give you an idea that they already have the case and movement so they can make the watch of your dreams.
It just depends on the design department of the Brand. A 42 mm with Marina Militare or Radiomir dial markings would look very attractive and cool for sure.
Let´s cross fingers and stay alert to their announcements of new models.
Best cordial regards, Abel
