...and before I new it this was delivered.

I had put my name in for a 372 when I worked with the boutique on the 390. Sure enough I got the call and with all the talk about the 372 this week I couldn't resist. I'm a true rookie here but have to say the 372 is every bit as magical as it was described in the posts! It's a BEAST on me but I think I'll grit my teeth and get used to it. Is moving from 44mm to 47mm a big adjustment?

Sorry for the quick and dirty pic but it was getting dark this evening. ...ran out of light too fast to shoot anything fancy.

Thanks again to all of you who are helping me empty my wallet at an alarming rate. And thanks for letting me gush a little. I'm just loving the 372!

Never imagined wearing a 47mm watch either until I tried the 372 on at a GTG. Fit perfectly! Will have to get one one of these days, fer sure!

Wear yours in the best of health!

and everyone that sees it gets caught up in how big it is, but when I see it on my wrist I never think of it as a monster, it wears great and feels comfortable. To me it wears small compared to and IWC BP or even the 232, but clearly when you put them all side by side.... you know the rest. I think it is a real credit to OP and the design, a true work of art. Congrats and enjoy.

All the best

47mm hmm.. I might sell all my 44mms if I get this. Very dangerous acquisition.

372 is clearly a winner.
