Replace T Dial - No Way

 By: Watches4ever : August 7th, 2015-20:57
With my recent purchase, Pam 225, noticed a slack in winding and decided to bring to Panerai Boutique (HK) for a service (lubrication or adjusting the crown). Immediately I was told, most likely the dial will be replaced with a L Dial, because its company...

And, by the way, the phenomenon is well known. I heard that some 7 or 8 years ago from Panerai. And the explanation you gave was exactly the same one. Best, Nicolas

Pam 225 completely serviced

 By: Watches4ever : August 14th, 2015-10:12
by an ex-richemont group servicing senior who gave my 10 years old Slytech a good service, done within days. He also understood about the T-dial recall by Panerai and 100% against their policy. The brand company doesn't care a cent about collectors who in...
