Hi, I am trying to get a replacement for my rubber strap. The picture of the back shows "Panerai Italy". Is it suppose to say "Made In Austria"? Is this real? Thanks for any input.

Authentic Panerai rubber straps are made in Austria. This does not indicate that it is fake.

Watch out for that guy ABYSERVE.... he has been known to sell fakes! This despite his high rating.

Looks like a fake to me. Even the baggy looks suspect.

The Buckle definately looks wrong on that one. The edges are all rounded and stuff like cheaply made copies, not crisp like the real deal holyfield.
