My 372 landed on Saturday and I've been eye balling it since.

Upon opening the box, when I first set eyes on it I thought it looked like a 'cleaner' version of my 127. Once you pick it up in your hand you realize this is not the case. In fact it's quite different to the 127.

I've since found JF's post comparing them both in detail and JF has done a much better job than I ever could with his comparison.

The 372's case seems to be pretty different than any 1950 cases that I've compared them too including my 44mm 270 and as you would expect very different the 305 and 285 which I also have here.

It's a beautiful looking watch and the polished case definitely lends itself to smart formal occasions as well as casual wearing with jeans etc (strap choice would obviously make this go one way or another). Speaking of which I love the second OEM strap that comes with the watch (vintage tan). Very soft and comfortable and looks great IMO.

Weirdly, in some ways the 372 has a similar clean look to a rad which I didn't expect. Call me crazy but in terms of sleekness of the case and the clean uncluttered look of the dial it really relates to the 232 in my view.

Being very lazy I've never been a fan of manual watches for every day use but the 372 can definitely be worn every day without problem. The 3 day movement has a lovely smooth, high quality feel when winding it up and seems to take very little time to wind to the max. It also seems to be very accurate in that it keeps very good time (my wife's 312 is always very fast by a crazy 4-5 minutes a week. Even after it just came back from an expensive service )

Lastly, I need to order a longer OEM tan strap for this, if anyone has the strap reference number I would greatly appreciate the info.

I agree. The 372 is the perfect watch

I can't wait for mine. To me, it is the way the world will see that: We are Paneristis!!

I think the similarity between the 232 is strong too, and not often mentioned. You have a wonderful collection;enjoy them all to the fullest!

Great Report Eric,

Having a question about the size compare with 270.
I have small wrist and also owned 270...that should be the max size I can wear, but really like 372.
Would that really not much bigger like other ppl said if compare with 270 44m case?

Thank you in advance
Bryan

Nice post and pics on the 372 - heartening to hear it shares some vibe with a Radiomir, I love the 47mm Radiomirs, but was worried the 372 "family" (yeah, there's three variants now might be too big for me.

On the 312, 5 minutes a week is way excessive, that much gain is often caused by getting magnetized (I had that happen to one of my Luminors and my wife's JLC Reverso suffered from it too). In both cases, it was a 2 second fix by our local AD, he just waved it over a demagnetizer and fixed it right away. (I think you can even buy a demagnetizer online, but since it happens so rarely, easier to hit the dealer). Be careful - I first went to one shop that claimed my watch needed a full overhaul and was not magnetized, but he was completely wrong - it seemed fishy, so I took the longer drive to the AD and yup... it was just magnetized.

Good luck, and enjoy the 372!

Hi Bryan,
If you can wear a 270 you can wear a 372. The 270 is quite a thick and chunky watch (thick because of the 10 day auto movement).
On the other hand the 372 is probably the smallest wearing 47" luminor out there.

All the best
Eric
