    Is $6,500 a good price for a PAM 347?

    I can get one now for $6,500. It's 100% authentic of course, but comes with no box or papers.

    Where's the box and papers.....
    Makes me wonder.... Burn up in a fire, or the owner didn't have them that night in the alley?

    Check completed eBay auctions for a watch in similar condition from reputable sellers, and check out Chrono24 to see what they sell for there.

    Even if you're certain that it's authentic, you'll still need to bring it to a reputable watchmaker to make sure it's running properly, so factor that into your costs if you don't have a watch guy who will do it for free.

    Keep in mind that PAMs are extremely easy to fake, and the homage quality is miles ahead of what you get on the sub. Even the in-house movement is easy to replicate, along with the Panerai signature rotor, while Seagull makes a movement that allows the power reserve to be at that exact location.

    In summary, I wouldn't consider it unless I can see the watch in person and confirm all the correct details on the movement, mechanism, etc.

    OR... the seller is on WIS/Timezone and has a good rep.

    14060m, 16200, Pam48, AT8500, El Primero 1969, Speedy FOIS, Antea KS, Orion Minimatik, ST8000SA Tourbillon, Zeppelin 7618-1

    want: ALS Saxonia, PP Nautilus,

    Seems a tad too good to be true IMO .I think the list is somewhere around 10-11k. I would stay away unless you know the person and know for sure that its legit.

    I find that Watchuwant.com is a great place to compare prices and shop for great pre-owned and new Panerai watches. I bought mine from there for a great price and couldn't be happier after having it for two years plus!

    PAM reps are getting harder to identify everyday. I would tread with caution.

    Well. I will put this whole authentic topic aside, as even if you have a fake one in front of me, I won't be able to ID it...and you said it yourself that you think it's 100%

    Unless You plan to sell keep it for good, otherwise you should check how hard it is to sell it without box or paper...

    So why would they have an $11,000 watch without box and papers?

    That would be my first question.

    I won't touch a PAM without box and papers these days.
    An acquaintance recently showed me a fake PAM382 (yes with a Bronze case), it even came with a movement that could pass off as a P.9000 to anyone that was not that familiar with it.
