Dear in Panerai Source,

First of all, it’s a pleasure to be among you where Panerai lovers can share their thoughts and experience.

I would like to share with you my experience with one of Panerai Boutiques.

It has been long time since I’m trying to get PAM507, and finally got the chance to see it in real and wear it.

At that moment I felt that I’m lucky to have it where others still waiting!

But the surprise is yet to come when the sales representative ask for triple the price of the watch and ask me buy with the triple price more watches in order to get the PAM507! Sounds ridiculous right! YES this is what happened and cannot understand what the point was!

Let's says they ask this ridiculous condition to prevent who plan buy PAM507and re-sell it in grey market! But still as a Boutique for respected brand name as Panerai, cannot assume every one is a dealer or reseller.

I do not know what to say more! But really I starts to re-consider buy that model!

What’s your thoughts or anyone have been in same experience?

Regards,


Paneraiholic

Welcome.

That is unfortunate.. if I understand correctly, are you saying that they priced the PAM507 at aftermarket inflated pricing and asked you to buy a bunch of other Panerai watches in order to be able to buy it?

This is not the first time I have heard something similar... Did not know that Panerai Boutiques were doing it also.

Thank you!

Yes, they asked me to buy a bunch of Panerai's ( non of them should be SE) in order to buy the PAM507 and it's should be on one deal! And that happened in Official Panerai Boutique.

It's very disappointing how Panerai assuming that customer is going to sell PAM507 in the grey market!

If it's Panerai's directives, for sure they will loose their loyal customers " paneristis "

I don't know if they will lose Paneristi's, because those guys have so much heart, soul and money invested. But it makes a lot of the casual buyers shake their heads.
