So, I've been thinking of the 372 for a while and figured it was too big for my 6.5 wrist. Figuring I'd have to try one on before seriously considering it. Let me first off say, I like big watches and always have. With my smallish wrists, I always thought the smaller 40mm and under look very feminine on me. Even my wife thinks so, even rolexes, my wife agrees. So, it's a matter of taste, I guess and what I think looks good on me. That said, I still thought perhaps the 372 would be just too big.

Now onto my LUCK yesterday -- I walk into my AD just to see what they had in 47mm so I can try on the size. A rad, a sub, whatever, just to give me an idea of how a 372 might look. I didn't mention the 372 to the sales lady whatsoever. I just was 'browsing' for fun. No intention of buying a watch at all.

The sales lady suddenly whispers to me, "I have a 372 in the BACK."

Whhhaaaaaat?


So she brought it out and I gave it a try. I could not believe how beautiful the watch was in person and on my wrist. Yes, it is big. But guess what? I don't care! I don't think it is too big. Or too big for me to pass off.


Long story short (too late) - I knew as soon as soon as it went on my wrist, l wasn't going to walk out without it. And I didn't I can't believe I now own a brand new 372!

SO - now I have to sell my 312! And a butt load of straps I've acquired!

Let me close by saying I don't think I'll be buying many straps for my 372. The two that come with it are gorgeous and soft, amazing quality. Maybe just a rubber strap and an ammo and I'll be all set. Anyway, thanks for reading this happy man's post. Now I'm off to take pictures of my 312!

Here are the obligatory wrist shots. I am not a great photographer (yet) as you can see. But you get the point!

...it fits you quite well.

The 372 is pretty much the best thing to come out of Panerai since 1950; wear it in good health!

Regards,
Adam

PS - Good luck limiting your strap purchases. You're gonna need it.

So, I've been thinking of the 372 for a while and figured it was too big for my 6.5 wrist. Figuring I'd have to try one on before seriously considering it. Let me first off say, I like big watches and always have. With my smallish wrists, I always thought the smaller 40mm and under look very feminine on me. Even my wife thinks so, even rolexes, my wife agrees. So, it's a matter of taste, I guess and what I think looks good on me. That said, I still thought perhaps the 372 would be just too big.

Now onto my LUCK yesterday -- I walk into my AD just to see what they had in 47mm so I can try on the size. A rad, a sub, whatever, just to give me an idea of how a 372 might look. I didn't mention the 372 to the sales lady whatsoever. I just was 'browsing' for fun. No intention of buying a watch at all.

The sales lady suddenly whispers to me, "I have a 372 in the BACK."

Whhhaaaaaat?


So she brought it out and I gave it a try. I could not believe how beautiful the watch was in person and on my wrist. Yes, it is big. But guess what? I don't care! I don't think it is too big. Or too big for me to pass off.


Long story short (too late) - I knew as soon as soon as it went on my wrist, l wasn't going to walk out without it. And I didn't I can't believe I now own a brand new 372!

SO - now I have to sell my 312! And a butt load of straps I've acquired!

Let me close by saying I don't think I'll be buying many straps for my 372. The two that come with it are gorgeous and soft, amazing quality. Maybe just a rubber strap and an ammo and I'll be all set. Anyway, thanks for reading this happy man's post. Now I'm off to take pictures of my 312!

Here are the obligatory wrist shots. I am not a great photographer (yet) as you can see. But you get the point!

It's very comfortable and I'm very happy with the straps that came with it. I already changed it to the 2nd strap, which is a little more caramel colored. It's very soft. I love the plexi shape and I really love the yellowish "Luminor Panerai" letters. The gold hands are bold. Their much thicker and larger than my 312. It's just perfect in every way I think! In heaven right now with this watch!

small. I have the same wrist size as you. I hope to one day get a 47mm, just as soon one catches my attention. That 372 47mm is a perfect fit for you. Very Cool!

...it fits you quite well.

The 372 is pretty much the best thing to come out of Panerai since 1950; wear it in good health!

Regards,
Adam

PS - Good luck limiting your strap purchases. You're gonna need it.
It's going to be a losing battle. I'm alreading looking at other peoples 372 strap choices...

I know what you mean. I like the big boldness of the 372.
