Hello All, long time Breitling owner looking at buying my first Panerai! (Thank you tax return!)

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Panerai-PAM111- ... 2c6bd92899

This is the watch I am considering, but I dont know what to look for, I notice the rubber strap has deployment clasp and I thought most Panerai's came with Tang. He claims it was bought it at Ultra Jewels in Mexico 10/3/05 according to the Warranty Card.

Can someone tell me how complete this set is? I am not a collector but like to have everything I should. I know it does not come with the brown leather strap which he said he wore out (this is ok with me because I dont like black dials with brown straps).

What is a good/normal selling price for one of these with this vintage?

Thanks to anyone for the help and look forward to being a Panerai owner!

I hope you didn't buy this? Based on the box being fake, my assumption would be the watch is too.

I did in fact purchase this for $3500, how would you tell the watch is fake?

The warranty card is stamped from Ultra Jewels in Mexico and all numbers match on boxes, etc.

It is on it's way to me and I completed the purchase outside of ebay so I probably have no recourse, the seller's feedback was pretty much all positive and he doesnt look to be a watch seller so the personal watch story seemed to fit.

Seller says he is including a copy of the sales receipt.

Thanks for the info.

The box and papers all looks fake to me the fonts are all wrong. Open up the case and check the number on the movement and compare it to the number on the cosc. The font on the dial looks a bit iffy too.
