But it's a lot of fun for us to see so thanks for sharing.

I am with you, 390 is better in a number of ways. First and foremost, it's more wearable in 44mm. It's more unique with the dial color. It's also more rare in production. In general I think the Bettarini case is more understated, which I am coming to appreciate more as well.

Nothing wrong with the 372 by any means, but to me the 390 is a better all around choice if you HAD to pick one.

now we're tracking daily wear patterns.

I LOVE THAT!

was going to remind you there were 365 days in a year and that your numbers were off - then i saw you cheated and threw on some rolexes, etc.

i question your loyalty!

great post.

I am also fortunate to have a 390 and a 372. The 372 is new for me (since April), so it is still in the honeymoon period. I think the 372 may be my favorite of my Panerai. The 372 is almost perfect (would prefer no fauxtina).

Not really sure what it is about the 390, but it doesn't call for me to wear it as much as my other Panerai. Maybe I need to try some new strap combos.

Here is that fact that the number of days you wore the 390 has been decreasing by year. I'll take it from you. 😂😂😂 Also it not nice to talk about how much you love a watch with out a wrist shot. Someone ban this guy 😜😜😜

I always suggest the 390 when someone wants a smaller 372. The 372 does have an engraved dial... that is cool. Brown dial and gold hands are a great panerai pairing; but typically with Ti; not Stainless. Great watch... should be sapphire case back... to minimize fakes.
