I tried searching, but the search function is...weak.

Apparently, I have a broken main spring on my 112. I purchased the watch used in 2011 or 2012 (I think--papers at home) and have never had it serviced. I tried winding it this morning, and winded it more and it never got going. Searched online and it is probably a broken main spring.

Given, I have never had this serviced, should I go to Panerai direct for full service or just have it repaired? Is there somewhere (cheaper) that services PAMs? Given, it is an ETA movement, so parts are somewhat available.

Thanks in advance.

They can also service it if you like.

When mine broke. I did it myself, but I have the tools.

Try International Watch Works if your in the US. They've worked on a number of Panerai models

Thanks. Yes, I am in NYC. I'm going through a list of options right now.
