I'm thinking my next Panerai will be the 372 but I have a question. As much as I liked the 194, I sold it because it was just too big on my wrist (my wrist is 8"). Will I have the same problem with the 372, or will it's relative flatness on my wrist solve my concerns?

Thanks to all who respond.

Richard as someone who had doubts about the 372 with a 7" wrist all I can say is once she is strapped on for the 1st time it's like magic - nothing else matters! Go for it, you won't regret it. Cheers ~ JY

but you may still not like the way it sits on your wrist.

i know many people who think 44mm is too big and hence won't consider panerais and other with smaller wrists than you who love the 372 on their wrist.

my wrist is smaller than yours buy i have no issue with 47mm.

I have two 47mms, the 372 and the 194, and they both fit well on my 7.25" wrist, which is about average.

Cheers,
Andy

You're the only person who will see the watch "on the wrist". Most people will see you wearing the watch in relation to your full body proportions. Since you have an 8 in wrist I doubt that you're a scrawny 50 kg man. Look at yourself wearing the watch in a full length mirror. I betcha it will look like a winner.

I took it to my watchmaker buddy and he thought it was huge side by side with my 232. But what makes it so interesting is, it doesn't wear big on the wrist and 9/10 people when it's on the wrist think the 232 is the bigger one. And compared to the IWC BP it wears small. You get yourself a vintage treated fr painted with knife's edge buckle and heaven isn't far away....

[/IMG]

I think my 372, 232 and IWC BP are watches all that are the one. Some days, I think the 232 is the only watch ever made for me. Then I wear the 372, and that's it. I'll never sell my Rolex and probably not my BP, but the 232 and 372 will have to be something they dispose of after me. They bespeak history and ooze DNA and something that can't be explained. Like I say to me both are Panerai and the 372 wears small.

All the best.....

Just get one and you will love it. I don't see a lot of difference in wearing 44 vs 47mm....they both wear very well!
Good luck!

I own a PAM 270 and PAM 183 and my primary fear about the 372 was that it would look too large - I don't get on with 47mm PAMs.

When it finally arrived at my dealer, I was pleasantly surprised. The shape of the case makes it look thinner and smaller than the usual 47mms and, having owned the PAM 372 for a month now, it's become my primary "go to" watch. Everyone agrees it looks better on the wrist than the PAM 270 or 183. Not a single person has mentioned it looks too large (which they did when I had a 47mm Fiddy, a few years ago).

As others described, magical...

Have so many gorgeous PAM beauties, yet, they all get no time because of this baby... Hopefully this pic wins you over
