I'm looking for some help from some of the experts in the forum.
I've recently purchased a pre-owned Panerai from a dealer that I have bought and sold a number of watches with over the years. This dealer does not "specialize" in Panerai so he was not sure of the actual model number. The trade he received did not include the box or papers.
This particular watch looks much like the PAM 36 (tobacco brown dial, Marina Militaire labelling and titanium case) however on the case it does not have the production numbers xxx/200 that I would have expected if it were in fact this watch.
My question out to the rest of you is - do any of you know of another Panerai that would have used the tobacco Marina Militaire dial or is it possible that this watch is in fact either a) a watch that has been serviced with this dial as a replacement or b) a fake.
I wouldn't normally purchase such a watch without papers or the box however I have done a number of deals with this dealer and have never had a problem.
Any help or insights would be greatly appreciated.
