I believe Panerai will only make them in a run of 3500 pieces. Why? Because at first we were told it would be a regular run in 3000 pieces..so I would have expected a run of 3000 pieces to be distributed in 2-3 years. After that another run maybe wich IMO would be overkill as it is one of the best Panerai ever (together with PAM390) wich would kill any interest for other Panerai..I'd keep it for 1 run obviously.
Putting my opinion about overkill aside. If indeed they were planning to make it a regular production, why change the initial 3000 run into a 3500 run? They could have kept it to 3000. After distribution another 2000 etc, etc, but NO..they changed it allready from 3000 to 3500!!!!!!!!!!!
If we would have been in the Financial markets this would have been a serious hint not to expect any more after 3500 pieces.......YOU DIG?????

but still, it's an opinion and you know what they say about those - everybody has one.

The magic and allure of Panerai is in being unpredictable. Otherwise, where the fun?

annoucing a regular production for the 372 is just " politiquement correct " by the Officine.
OP do not want to see the price getting more and more higher in the 2nd hand market like the value of their LE.
Imagine if the 372 was a LE >> how would increase its value ( even before his production !! )

from the beginning I hoped it would be a LE

Just like the 232 / 249 / 217 / 127 .... the 372 is a watch which should be a LE

the 390 on the other hand should have been regular production. It is a nice watch but when I see the secondhand price, it is WAY overrated.
I would never pay more tha 4K. After all it's just a VERY simple entry piece.
3400 at list is a good price. 4K would still be acceptable but paying 5 or 6 K is insane

The 341 was originally slated as 300 pieces, this then rose to 500 before finally announcing 600.
I believe in the end it went back to 500??

Recently the very beautiful 373 platinum rad was slated as 199 pieces and is now in a run of 300.

Guess this part of Panerai's success story which I am genuinely happy about, however it does make collecting a more considered issue for me. Supply and demand I guess.

I believe the 372 will be 3500 in total over the next 2 years for the exact reasons you state.

New markets with voracious appeitites for product are the reason why production is increasing.

Time will tell! Let's enjoy the ride : ))

it's due to the overwhelming demand. I'm sure Panerai knew the 372 was going to be a hit, but nobody could expect the frenzy that the piece has unleashed. That and the chronic habit to "over produce" should represent explanation enough.
Cheers

I leave a small chance you are wrong...

When I have seen the 372 variation with the seconds (don't remember number) that it was shown by mistake I thought that maybe Panerai is trying to make a regular line aka 111/112 but in 47mm with inhouse movement??

We will have to wait and see, just like you said. Meanwhile I put my money on it being a one time 3500 production.

I feel the same way the moment they announced that they make 3500 pc of it.

What bothers me more is that they cheat on their customers this way, cfr. the 373 and 376, 341 and some others
on which they also changed the millisimation 'after' the release. I had plans to buy a 376 but now that they changed it from 299 to 501 pc I'm not sure anymore I will buy one. It's time they have to understand that this kind of game is not something you can do without consequences.

3500 ex is not a small run especialy for a 47 mm case.

Just my opinion

they had develop a new case for only 2 runs, one of 3500 "372" and one of "422"?
I don't believe it.

Something tells me we'll see this case again but perhaps you're right, not under the number 372.

Maybe us fans are interpreting too much into millesimation.
I am sure,today OP might not know for themselves if they do another and regular
run on the 372.
Therefore clever move to make it a non SE.
OP has time now to test the market. If the demand for this watch
is still there after the 3500 run, so why should they stop producing
this model? First goal of this company is to sell watches and not to
create hype. Although creating hype helps to sell watches
... and if not the 372, I am sure, we will see this new case in different variations in the future.

If you find the 372 in the AD´s & Boutiques shop windows
in late 2012 FOR SALE, it might get a SINGLE 3500 run
