And this is why Panerai never lose value, ladies and gentlemen... Secondary market prices follow OEM price increases -- that is as long as there's strong demand for the watches...

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

retail is now $6,300.

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

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

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.
