Hey guys. After years of wanting a Panerai, I just bought one. Been really enjoying reading all the great posts on this site. Though the 321 doesn't seem to get much love here, I really love it. I picked it up new from a well known, but non-AD dealer. Because I bought it from a non-AD, I was nervous about the authenticity, etc. From what I've read, and what I can tell, it's the real deal. But what do I know. Would appreciate it if you'd take a peek. Would give me some piece of mind. So far (3 days) it's been keeping to about +6/day. Hoping it settles in a bit. Call me a perfectionist, but one thing is bothering me. Take a look at the pictures. The date sits just a bit high in the window. Anyone know what would cause this? Dial or movement crooked in the case? Date wheel misaligned? Something that's easily tweeked by a watchsmith? Am I just being overly critical? Really appreciate it. Thank you.

Then those are pictures of the best fake I've ever seen, down to the in house movement and the quick release pins on the lugs...

Those counterfeiters are upping their game! Just kidding of course

Looks a-ok to me...

Enjoy it!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi and welcome! It is a stunning watch! I compared your pictures to my watch, I just bought a 320 so much similar but without the power reserve in the dial! As far as I know, it is the real deal!

Enjoy and about the alignment of the date; don't see something real strange but it is 3 o'clock here so it is hard for me to compare such a minor detail to my watch!

Hi,

I just created a new account and been following this forum for a while now. Looking forward to buying my first panerai soon and was very keen on this model. But as per the website and the one that I saw at my AD, this one has a small seconds hand which I do not see in your pic. Just thought I'd let you know.

Cheers

Kunal
