There's so much to like about this watch, yet I'm a bit concerned about the 47mm size.

If you previously have bought and sold a 372, would you say why?

Thanks-

I'd thought about it, mainly due to the size. My wrist is slightly larger than 7", and sometime I feel 47mm Luminor is just a tad too big. But whenever I wear it, I just love it too much.

I just think those ones look better but the price of the in comparison makes the 372 a great value. I guess my issue is that it wears kind of square and the yellow text has always bothered me. It's still a great watch that I enjoy wearing and the p.3000 is s gorgeous movement.

As its readily available it has lost its must have luster. However, it is probably Panerais greatest gift to the community. It's just we never recognize a gift and only seek what we shouldn't be buying !

I have one, cannot stop looking at it , but there are a couple of things that might make me sell. Yes at times it can appear very large, but it is perfectly formed. The other reason is the good value angel on my shoulder keeps saying it is a hand wind movement with no date wheel, seconds hand or sapphire crystal. For not much more you could have a seconds hand power reserve and sapphire crystal in the 422. So I could sell if I had a deal for a 422.

Oh and I hate scratches so plexi not good for me but easily polished and cheap, ahh but its not good value ahhhhhh

If've tried it on with my smaller wrists, and IMO the 372 wears much smaller than other 47er PAMs due to its perfectly balanced look.

Great watch, I'd love to get it (if I only had the money)!

Cheers

... it's an amazing watch. But if you have just the slightest doubt - then don't get it.

It's easy to get blinded when browsing this forum where everyone pads your back, and tell you that it looks great on you.

But in reality, your wife, your boss and most importantly yourself might not think that a 47mm plexi scratchmagnet looks that cool outside the "Risti" world.

It's an great watch, but the hyoe is even greater. As yourself if you would have bought it, if you walked into a jeweler without ever having heard of Panerai or Paneristi before? Some would, and they are the correct owners, but a lot wold not - mainly due to the size. And that's the reason many gets flipped at the moment.

But hey, try it on.

3500 is more than enough

the 422 and 423 could have been great watches to replace the 372

the first months it was really hot and some flippers played with it. I think now most people who want one do have one or can buy one secondhand. It could have been ' a nice gift from Panerai' to give these 3500 something really special, which it would become in a heartbeat if they stopped production.

Not like every overhyped Limited Edition but regular production that becomes limited
Most people can't get a sought after LE, it would have been good if the people who got their 372 after 18 months would be 'rewarded' with something limited that wasn't anounced as a LE

the first watch which introduced a whole new line ( 422 - 423 - and these that will follow) + Only the 372 with plexi, the others with saphire ----> It should have been discontinued to keep it more special.

regular production. Only one I recall is the Pam 190--the 8 Day Radiomir with the JLC Movement---550, 1000, and 500 for a total of 2050. Watch was 45mm.

That's an interesting thought. It's certainly a piece that would do very well as an SE model; easily command double its price with a 1,000 release or maybe more with an 8-day movement. Don't think Panerai doesn't know that either. We will no doubt hear the opposite when the 399 hits the streets.

No worries about exclusivity! Any bud you have that can afford it can get one.

I like that!

Don't get me wrong, I like SE and LE too, a lot, but so many have been left out that it's just beautiful to know that everyone can have such a special piece.

Not enough wrist time because of the competition with the 368.
But no doubt; the 372 is a fantastic watch and I can understand everyone who keeps it.
In fact I'm thinking of buying it again, maybe next year, after the buzz.
Cheers,
C.
