I had worn this replica Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days PAM00372 for several days. The Panerai PAM 372 was just launched at SIHH 2011 and is shaping up to the one of the most sought after Panerai watches of the year. A faithful and authentic looking remake of a vintage Panerai, the PAM372 everything that a Paneristi desires.
The PAM 372 also has a 47mm 1950-style stainless steel case, but with subtle differences. For one, the case is entirely polished stainless steel instead of brushed. However, the trademark “device protecting the crown” retains its brushed finishing. Additionally, the case also has a slightly different shape. It’s less chunky and has a cushion-shape profile that is more similar to the Radiomir watches. It also has slimmer lugs.
Overall, it looks less bulky, and despite its massive size, I found that it fits better than the smaller 44mm Luminor 1950 watches. It’s less top heavy, and sits closer and more snugly to the wrist. I have smaller 6.5-inch wrists and I found the PAM 372 to be comfortable enough to wear the entire day. That said, the PAM 372 is by no means a small watch at 47mm wide.
