Hi guys,
I am new to this forum, i was planning to buy PAM's for a long time. I am from Russia and i've found a nice watch near my city. The price is good (around 3000eur), but i have some doubts about this Panerai.
It is PAM00116, limited edition, one of 300 pieces.
The owner says that it was bought in Italy, but he have lost documents. It goes with not original leather strap and OEM rubber strap, with box.
What do you think? Are they real? Or i should find the other one?
Thanks!

Personally I wouldnt buy a watch of this calibre without papers. Watch looks good, but there is lots of fakes out there. Take it to a local dealer to authenticicate before handing over the cash. Job done.

Nickj,
Unfortunately there no any authorized dealer in my city, but i can do some tests at very good service center (but they don't usually work with panerai).
What should i check? Movement comparison (21600, isn't it?), weight? what else? How much does the real 116 weight?
Thx

Looks good from the pics, though its hard to say since this is a well-faked watch. The usual tell-tale signs of a fake on the dial and movement are not there which would lead me to believe it is a real PAM116.
