    please help! need advice on a rare Panerai watch without papers

    hey guys,

    I am new to this forum and Panerai...

    I would like to buy a Panerai Pam00362/Pam362...it's a limited piece...one of 500...

    the problem: no papers

    how much would you pay for that watch? or any other advice?

    appreciate your time!

    thanks

    Panerai next to Rolex has got to be one of the most faked watch brands on this planet. As a result no way would I buy a used Panerai with anything less than an absolute full kit and even then from an extremely trusted and established source.

    the words rare and without papers in the same sentence sparks maybe the biggest red flag in all of the watch world. along with echoing the comment before me that panerai is often replicated....i would steer clear. obviously there is no way for sure, but based off of the situation I would say well over 90% chance the watch is not legitimate. it is also extremely unlikely that papers would have somehow been lost by somebody watch savy enough to own a panerai limited to 500 pieces

    I would not consider such a watch without all of the documentation, it could be stolen.

    A limited edition without documentation is a red flag for me. Wouldn't everybody keep the documents to prove the limitation ?
    Kind regards

    Yup. Even if genuine watch. The provenance sounds dodgy. Ask the seller for the history and contact the previous owners until you find out where the kit is.

    In addition to papers an appraisal by an authorized dealer or repair shop familiar with the brand is needed to protect you. Many fakes of popular brands like this one are very good and difficult to recognize.
