why the hell do they call the 372 the Luminor 1950 3 days ?

This isn't a Luminor, and it's not a 1950. Take a Liminor 44mm and a 1950 like the 233, now tell me why the 372 is the Luminor 1950 ?
The case is something like a mix between a Luminor and a Radiomir. Anyway it's a totally different case so why didn't the give it an original name ?

The Luminor, the Radiomir, the Egiziano, the Mare Nostrum ... this 372 is imo something else so why doesn't it have a name ?

The modern Luminor case is based on the vintage 6152/1 but so is the '1950' case. I would say the 372 is closer to perhaps a 6154 or 6152 than to a Radiomir, but with a crown-guard. We must not forget that in the vintage world the names Luminor and Radiomir have nothing to do with the case, only with the luminescence material used on the dial. Radiomir meant Radium was used and Luminor meant Tritium (well, mostly,,,lol,,,but that's a separate post,,,).

"The new Luminor 1950 3 Days – 47mm offers for the first time a historic case which marks a transitional phase: while having the characteristic Luminor features, the new case has a rounded, cusp-shaped caseband, which was evidently derived from the cushion form of the Radiomir case. Other small details mark the faithful relationship of the new model to a few extremely rare historic examples: the slimmer lugs, the engraving of the reference details between the lugs, the Plexiglas® crystal instead of a sapphire one and the wide, flat back with the words “Officine Panerai” engraved upon it."

I know it doesn't answer your question, but it's interesting nonetheless.

Cheers,
Martin

It is a Luminor and not a Radiomir to Panerai's modern way of thinking, but agree with Asi, the dial lume material used to be the determiner

 

I think Panerai did a good job thinking outside of the box on this, they used the old 6154 case and lug profile and married it with a crown guard, giving collectors something a little sleeker, best of both worlds really. Now if they would have just gotten the hour hand right...............

...this one is very close to the case of 372...




...but it's a 6152...and so has a RADIOMIR dial.
