Hello experts! Newb here.

I've seen a great PAM00104 for £3750 ish in the UK (independent jeweller) with box and papers. 2007 model and in great condition. I understand this is a modified ETA movement. My questions are:

1. Are these models well-regarded or should they be avoided? I'm guessing it would be due a service? How much is a service?
2. Should they come with a second strap? I'm not sure this one does. Were they doing this back in 2007?
3. This seems like a good price (maybe not if #2 above is true?) - is it? - And, do you think it might retain its value well?
4. If I go for it, are there any things I need to look out for before buying?

Many thanks in advance.

Gav

Actually it's a 48! No additional strap.

Questions still apply (apart from number 2 now obviously!)

Thanks

A PAM 48 is a fine watch and if you have smaller wrists then the 40mm case is an alternative. However most Panerai buyers favour the 44mm cases such as the 104. Just be aware that if ever you decided to sell it, 40mm models are not so sought after and are often harder to find a buyer for.

TBH, unless its a great (cheap) deal i would look at more iconic Panerai's such as the manual winding 000, 112 or with seconds an 005 or 111, all are 44mm. They better represent what Panerai is all about and winding them every couple of days is a pleasurable experience, imo at least.

Have to agree.. I would avoid 40mm models.
