Where to go from here?

I’ve been wearing the Luminor Marina a lot lately. Kind of curious, what models retain the same classic panerai aesthetic and are worth exploring? Was thinking of a radiomir?

I can’t recommend radiomir’s enough. They wear much smaller than their case width. And the winding action is addictively-satisfying.

Here’s my 384, which is currently getting major orthopedic surgery 😔 By the way, I’m doing the exact opposite: looking to re-add a luminor to the collection. I had a 359 in the past, but thinking of a base model Awesome lume shot! ...  

Considering Radiomirs the most classic would be 232 and 249 in 47mm. If you want something smaller then 210 , 610 comes to my mind

There are several other choices, and remember, whatever floats your boat is great. There is no right and wrong if it comes to personal taste. For example, 610 due to English writing is maybe not the most sought-after model, but i love it as it has special...  

Since you're wearing a 40mm model....

I might suggest you have a look at the Panerai 2 - Radiomir offerings. I also think that a 45mm one would fit your wrist just nicely. In other words, a Radiomir it's worth considering. IMO ...  

You've mentioned a Radiomir....

and I thought you might enjoy the 40mm size. On the other hand, there are few 45mm Rariomir worth a look (with the 210 at the top of the list) As for 44mm Lumiors (Marina or otherwise) there are quite a few, NOS or perfectly kept 2nd hands, starting from ...

JLC movement, no date with a power reserve on the back in a SS case - what’s not to love

I tried the 45mm on today and it was actually not "huge" like I thought it would be. Wears like a 42mm and the 40mm one wore kind of small on my 7.25" wrist!

I'm not entirely sure but....

 By: sergio : June 28th, 2024-02:23
a 7.25" wrist should allow you to wear ANY 47mm, be it a Luminor or Radiomir. I've never measured mine (when it comes to Panerai I measure...attributes..) but a lot of Paneristi wear them, I swear Lolllllllllll

I believe that he’s looking for a radiomir.

That’s what the second part of the questions led me to believe

I stand corrected

Even the version with a less-bulbous sapphire crystal has 'correct' proportions.

662 and 587. ;)

You're perfectly right....

...Nico is so in love with the 372 that he must have forgotten the crown guard, entirely Lollllllllllllllllllllllll

Yes, Nico dear...

👍☺️ cool!

Since you think of radiomir, I would go for a classic that looks very different from your luminor, I would go with a California dial.

Now, they are lots of options, the new 8 days, smaller size, but they don't come out cheap, or the phased out limited editions such as the 249, 448, 47mm, or there is the 424 (with date or without). You can find those quiet easely and well priced If you a...
