Both good choices. I went 422 because I prefer a sapphire Chrystal and I liked the power reserve indicator. If the 372 would have been a lil cheaper probably would have went that direction but for only $500 difference new ill take the 422

At this size, 372 for the simplicity and 3/6/9/12.

Personally I like the seconds hand- 422. But either would certainly do

I chose the 422 as I prefer the second hand and the sapphire crystal. It had been awhile since I owned a 47 mm watch and found it to be too large for my liking. Flipped it and did not look back. What ever you do, do not pay retail on the watch. The resale or flip will be brutal.

I heard the 372 is coming with a sapphire crystal now, so if plexi vs sapphire was the biggest concern, it's not any longer. I went with the 422.

Another vote for the 422. Absolutely love mine. To be fair though, I've never tried on a 372. I just liked the second hand and power reserve over a plain base.

That being said, I love my 000 and 232 just as much. If you can, try them both on.

No wrong choice here but if I were to choose between the two, it would be 372. It's been available with sapphire for a few months now, much to the disdain of the purists, but there's no way to visually tell the two versions apart (with the exception of serial numbers for pieces not made in 2016).

i would try to get a 372 with plastic crystal

if 422 comes with one, then it would have been a winner :)

I had the 372. An almost perfect watch if it weren't for the plexi...

372 with sapphire would be my choice. I've had both and if the 372 had a sapphire crystal it would never leave my arm.

372 was my choice, the simplicity and clean look with the different glow the plexi provided did me in.

Both are fantastic. I chose the 422 a few years back and really enjoyed it. I ended up selling it as I geared my collection to mainly Rolex but I have plans to add the 372 to be my only PAM. The clean dial is just too sexy. My favorite modern day offering from the brand.

I definitely "get it" with the 372. I can see why you chose it Mike.
