ok, have had the zero, 212, 28, 25, 250...liked 'em all for a while...ended up trading them for various reasons...but, now I am getting more focused on my next model...after all of my back and forth on Panerai and Rolex, I have a '71 GMT master (pepsi), a '67 Omega Speedmaster, and realize that one of the main features which attracts me is the plexi...I just love the look...I am wondering what people think about the fit on the 47mm 372. It looks amazing in pictures, I have a 7.5 inch wrist, the 44mm fit me nicely...wondering if the 372 would be a good fit...does it sit lower than the 44mm 1950 cases? I don't have a dealer here, so it is a bummer that I have to order online and wait to get it before I can try anything on...thank you guys for any help that you can give me...

You should have no problems at all wearing a 372. It sits quite low and fits nicely on the wrist - looks smaller (meaning: good) than some of the other 47ers...

Cheers

I've worn my 372 daily since picking it up a month or so ago, can't bring myself to take it off. Very comfortable to wear... even more-so than my 312 which I also find comfortable. The 372 definitely sits lower than the 312 & the bump in diameter is barely noticeable IMHO.

I have 7.5" wrist and fits very nicely. The 44mm seems just a bit small on me as I'm also tall.

I had my doubts about the 372 at first but I've grown to love it more and more each time I wear it. Just something about it that I can't quite explain.

My wrist is 7.5 inches and I am rather tall and the 47mm is easily pulled off. Amazing how the 372 is so easy to pull off! Best of luck with your hunt. Though I would try one on first to make sure. Seems like many who sell it in the CM do so cause it is too big for them.

I had the same concerns about the 47mmØ but when you get that bad boy on your wrist, all those doubts will float away!
I now worry that my 176 is too small!
My wrist is 7.5" and 47's look awesome.
You won't regret the 372. Good luck.
