    Exclamation About Marina Militare posts

    Hi all,

    Sorry to announce to you that we at Watchuseek no longer allow the use of "Marina Militare" other than related to the real Panerai product.

    Here's why: https://trademark.trademarkia.com/ma...-79011293.html

    Hope you will understand.

    I am wondering if the Forum got threatened.. A C and D letter??

    Since the Marin... Militar... is a trademark infringement are the sales of said watches restricted as well?

    I don't understand. So the term is UK trade mark. So are a bunch of other band names but their use is allowed here, is it not? I can understand not wanting them for sale here but what's the reasoning behind not evening typing the words? Should I not type Rolex, McDonalds, Toyota, or any other Trademarks?

    You can say Rolex as long as you are not talking about a fake. But if the word Marina Militare is trademarked by Panerai then it makes non-Panerai MM's kind of like replicas and hence we can't talk about them.

    That is the way I read it. I assume that would include the posting of pics then as well? If so, this section will have a LOT fewer posts....

    I could be wrong, but I don't think anyone is saying the words can't be typed. In fact Ernie says "other than related to the real Panerai product", meaning if you have a genuine MM, feel free to discuss it. He is saying don't come here to sell or seek advice/information a non-Panerai manufactured MM homage...any more than you should come here seeking advice on a $100 fake Rolex.

    What isn't mentioned though, are watches that mimic the crown guard system of the Panerai, as that design is also trademarked.
