But only if that were the only way I could swing a 372.

For me 372 > 390 even with the 390 being LE etc.

But, since the 372 is regular production and there's LOTS of them around, before I sold the 390 I'd take a long hard look at finding another way to get the 372 so I could have both, they're both great pieces.

I personally wouldn't do it. The 390 is such an awesome watch, as is the 372 but the 390 takes the cake for me. If you prefer the 372 then its a no brainer but I personally think the 390 is one of the best watches Panerai has EVER made.

Good luck

I think the 390 vs. 372 debate is just a modern version of "Pre-V or vintage". Whichever side you come down on in that debate... you'll likely do the same with 390 vs 372.

seriously it's an extremely heavy piece IMO, the versatility and beauty are hard to beat.

The 372 is a great watch but seriousely is is not greatest Panerai ever produced as some try to describe it .... it's good to be realistic sometimes

All things being equal, I'd choose the 372. While I like it more than the 390, I'm not sure I like it $2,200 more. I'm speaking strictly from the perspective of someone who buys watches to keep, not flip. Although, if you paid retail for the 390, spending an extra $2,200 for the 372 makes financial sense. Tough call, and in the end you have to do what works for you.

Yep, that's it, I have paid the retail for the 390..

So, financially, it would be a great deal.

The movement could be also an important issue for me, although our community - against all other watchlovers from the World - don't mind, if a simple Unitas works on their watch.. See the Fiddy, 249, pre-V Models etc..

How reliable is the new handwound movement?

The size is also important. I have a rather strong wrist, I am eager, how would a 47mm size fit for my wrist..

Many thanks for your thoughts!

but because it's plexi, then it's not as good as an everyday watch for me.

if you are planning to wear the watch as a daily wearer, then i will NOT do it because plexi will attract scratches

if you are planning to wear it occasionally, then i will do it as 372 is that great. I was blown away by the design, the looks, everything, except the crystal

You can always get a 372 at some times in the future. But the 390 will not be so easy to reacquire should you regret the trade.

I would keep the LE 390 just based on rarity. You will be able to buy a 372 anytime you want. Who knows what will happen with the the 390.
Love the 372 though. So if it's solely an issue of preference to wear, go for it. Someone wants that 390!

If you have other 44mm Luminors Id be more open to trading for a 372 (assuming you're itching for it). If its the only Panerai you'll own or at least the only 44mm Luminor, I'd wear the 390 and someday down the line get the 372.
