I purchased as the seller claims the strap is oem.
Is this genuine? I noticed the level of gloss is not there.
The printing is different, the grain at the back looks different.

Vince as I told you as I am the seller
Mine is semi Matt yours is glossy
look at the stitching on mine the finish
It's better than your one if anything
And your calling me out on here about it

My apologies

Just to clear up.
I am no expert and in fact a noob when it comes to oem and who are the genuine sellers.
I post it up for opinions and I took care extra care not to name the seller.
No intention of pun at all.
You feel offended, my sincere apologies but as I mentioned, I do not know who are the famous sellers and so on.
Cheers!

Not an expert on OEM straps but it looks legit to me.

April 21 2017, 3:55 PM 

Construction quality and details all look like Panerai standards to me, usually fakes are pretty easy to spot, I don't see anything here that's suspect. But again, not an expert on OEM.

I have bought

April 21 2017, 5:06 PM 

2 OEM straps, an OEM buckle, a Panerai strap changing board and also a non OEM travel case from Dean and I have been very happy with all of the items. The straps I purchased were a black croc and an antique brown croc and there is no doubt in my mind that they are both genuine items. I have seen many fakes on ebay and in most cases you can tell. In my opinion and having dealt with Dean he is a first class seller.

Genuine OEM

I have bought and traded watches with Dean on numerous occasions and also straps on occasion.
He is a genuine seller and all his merchandise is 100% genuine.
I have utmost faith in Dean.

I have few OEM's and.....

April 21 2017, 5:25 PM 

Dean's is genuine one...
No worries that yours is more glossy, the crocodile staps they tend to get glossy with wear and develop a nice patina!
On the other hand, your strap holes seem to be a little off which is a. It unusual for an OEM...
I have several OEMin different colors,. The one you bought is a nice one!
Wear in good health....

My 2 cents...

April 21 2017, 6:28 PM 

When I looked this post initially I seriously thought the questionable one was the glossy one!

Enjoy them both!

My 'go to' source for genuine Panerai accessories.

I'd probably do a bit more research in future.
