It is going back to panerai though. I'm not opening it, nor is someone local. That's what warranty service is for. I don't dare if it takes a few weeks, I have other watches. Knowing myself, if I open it up I will get fingerprints or dust inside. It's just not worth it to me. I learned my lesson about these things a long time ago. Now if it was a $200 watch, that would be a different story.
