Some purist may choose PAM372 because of the base, and a vintage recreation done very well. However, they have concerns for the Plexiglass material which is not exactly scratch resistant. This can be solved by using PolyWatch to buff out scratch, or replacing with the spare Plexiglass. Some other comments is that the PAM372 dial is not as balance looking as compared to PAM422. When the hands are both at the upper half of the dial it looked unbalance; but when both hands are at the lower half, it looks perfect.
On the other hand, some the PAM422 may not satisfy everyone too. Base lovers will find 422 face too crowded. Luminor 422 has a heftier feel due to the sapphire crystal and the power reserve function.
