Response to Rolex v Panerai - dealers and in the eyes of others!!!!
Sounds like you came across a dealer being a dealer.
I'm a vintage Rolex fan first and foremost, however, anyone with sense realizes Panerai is a ridiculously strong brand. The collectability will only continue IMHO (20% off...?).
I don't think dealer's specifically target Panerai. I've dealt with dealers who had the nerve to tell me vintage Subs were not as hot as they were last year and PN Daytona's aren't desired by many collectors. It's B.S--- It's the way dealers get vintage Subs & PNs for "Cheap" lol.
In any event. I'm in the market for Panerai (little tired of my current collecting trend) . That's not to say that Vintage Rolex is on a downtrend- it is not. Some models are demanding more than ever.
P.S Great forum!
