    Holy !@#$% Batman.

    I gotta say, remarkable and disappointing at the same time.

    The words....fleece, rip off, pulling a fast one, con, been had come to mind. An offical from Richemont needs to step in here for comment, I'm amazed the Panerai would have such low grade movements in their inventory.

    Better. By far, but in a minimalistic way.

    How can I know for sure? With an solid case back, there's no way of telling for sure.

    I have to be honest, seeing this thread and the whole Amazon/Costco now selling Panerai, I'm starting to doubt Panerai's exclusiveness.

    Did anyone find it ironic that they chose the Brooklyn Bridge for this limited edition?

    You unscrew the case back

    Hold on. This was a run of 150 watches out of how many Panerai has made? And the Amazon/Costco issue applies to plenty of other luxury brands where some distributor has gotten hold of a limited supply of watches. They are not authorizing the sale of Panerai at Costco. So take a step back. It's all ok.

    Re: Someone opened up a 318 and found this:

    I am surprised and disappointed (if this is indeed true), but all of the reactionary responses I'm reading don't make any sense to me. People are assuming that OP's intention was to rip people off, scam them, whatever. Really? If a pretty decorated movement cost an extra $100 per watch, then OP perpetrated this wicked scam for a total of $15,000 extra? Really? I just find that tough to believe. I don't have any idea what the explanation might be, and it's disappointing whatever it is, but a sinister plot doesn't quite add up.
