By most standards 44mm is still a big watch, and as a slim wristed guy, who started with a 40mm but now pulls off 44mm, but just barely, I'm suffering wrist envy and am slightly disenchanted to see so many of the most exciting and appealing new models in 47mm. The 390 is nice and all, but it's no 372, at least IMHO. So, OP, IF you're listening, please don't neglect the 44mm market with your most appealing new designs. I'm guessing I'm not alone. Am I??

...I think you need 47 to make these things look balanced.
372 lettering is big...and bold...

You might get rid off the lettering of course, but then its not a 372 kind of dial...

My 7.5" wrist pulls off the 372 just fine, but I can see how thinner wristed 'ristis wouldn't mind a 44mm variant. Yes, the dial font would have to be commensurately smaller, but it could work.

No, I don't see Panerai doing this, but that doesn't mean that I don't empathize with my pencil-wristed brethren.

Regards,
Adam

For us small wristed ones, upon whom the 372 looks ridiculous.
To not be able to wear this gem is too frustrating. Here's hoping!

Hello,

They have 14-15 years of production being focused towards 44mm --there are a multitude of 44mm's out there.....!!

Beginning about 8 years ago they started re-aligning their produced lines with 47mm sizes. Not too sure
but I think there is something like 25 to 30 models of 47mm watches now. That figure might be multiplied
by a factor of 5 or 6 regarding the possibilities for 44mm.

So to answer your question if they would consider a 44mm 372?? maybe...... But I would bet they would focus more
strongly on producing more 47mm's in the future. Of course they will have more 44mm's ((Thats their bread and butter.))

For the stand out models and for the vast percentage of the SE's .. I would say they are slanted towards 47mm stuff.
Try a 47...... they fit smaller wrists remarkably well.

Loved it, and the 372 does not fit my wrist. I believe that the number of 372's up for sale is due to the fact that the purchasers have come to their senses about how it looks on their narrow but manly wrists.
Glad as I am about the price drops for the 390, as time has passed my desire has cooled and I've alloted those funds for another watch! Maybe later in the year.

I'd be all over a 44mm version, provided it was exactly the same.. just a smaller case

I can't wear the 47mm it's just too big for me.

I personally love my 111. But I would love to see the 372 and the 422 in 44mm. I love the history and heritage, and I respect the decision from Panerai, but I would be all over exact copies of each in a scaled down 44mm piece. I have a 7.5"+ wrist, but I just can't hang with 47mm. My .02
