Holy cow, had no idea these have gotten so expensive. I think I paid something like $3,200 for mine new back in 2005.

But $6k+ for a basic steel Luminor? I'm glad I bought mine when they were in the $3-4k area...

I'd be happy to sell you my (much rarer and cooler) 115F (serial # 115) for the price of a pedestrian new 112... peepwall[1].gif

$6k for a basic Panny is nuts. They're getting into Hublot territory at this rate.

Buy a LNIB then. You can probably still find an okay deal for a few weeks until secondary market starts adjusting ask prices
post #14589 of 39127
yes, but from where?

Paneristi, Timezone, watchpro, etc...

that is crazy.

I mean to be fair, Patek, Rolex, and practically every other brands are increasing their prices as well.

In 2005, a Rolex Submariner date would run you at $4,500ish. Now the watch retails for $8,550. Man I was pretty happy to paid $6,700 for mines. I was also very lucky to score a very sweet deal on my GMT-c about 2 months ago.

You can probably buy a nice 112 for about $4,500-5,200ish.

thanks guys. question tho, is there any concern of people passing off fakes on those sites?

Check references, buy with a no-questions-asked 3 or 5-day return agreement so you can inspect it. Some guys selling watches there are grey market dealers who have been doing that for a decade, so they have a lot of references

the golden rule is to buy the seller and you should be fine.

On the rolex forums, DAVIDSW and Bodybump (Oscar) are my guys. They can probably get you a brand new Panerai with your name on it for a slight discount. Or they will have a LNIB for sale for a great price.
