127, 217, 203, 267 are all special editions. Even they may be too big for someone, they are a lot more collectable.
I also own a 372 and love it. But it is also too big for me and I also considered selling it. I know if I sell it, I can always buy it back because it is a regular production. But for 127, 217, 203, or 267, once you sell it, it is not that easy to get it back.
There are a lot of risti out there and there are also a lot of regular people buying Panerai. For us, the 372 means a lot more and many see it as a must have watch. But every non risti I know think that my 372 is way overprice and too big, most would not consider it.
I believe the beginning demand on 372 are created by us. But the general market just don't have that high demand at this price range hence the flipper are forced to sell when the supply is higher than demand.
I do hope more 44mm base watch with dome crystal and 1950 case in the future. For now 390 is my alternate for my 372.
