Hour and minute hand not moving when adjusted.
Winding function is intact.
Local watchmaker or PASC?
Thanks,

Are you pulling the crown all the way out? >>>

Hands would not turn if the clutch wheel doesn't connect with the setting wheel when winding crown is pulled out

Something sticking?

Last time serviced?

If you know a qualified watchmaker. Should be an easy fix and cheaper than PASC

why?

Sorry to hear what happened to your Panerai.

I am starting to doubt the real toughness of the brand, you read more and more about movements stopping, starting to re-bank, running too fast, crowns coming loose., not waterproof, etc... Does QC of OP even care? I do hope they read the threads on the forum often enough and start acting a luxury watch brand should, taking care of things, doing active recalls, etc...

Panerai watches are as far as I am concerned when it comes design and history unique, but there is a lot to improve when it comes to reliability and toughness , it is a luxury tool watch after all.

I hope your watch will be in mint condition ASAP!

Do share with us what the watchmaker discovers.

Best regards,

It's a 2005 watch with an ETAish movement. A lot can happen in 12 years. nt

Crown guard was loose when you pulled out the crown and it came out further than needed.

Can't get all the way back into the watch?

Take it too a watchmaker that's competent or take it to PASC

I removed the crown guard to try to pull the crown out. It came out - crown and the "stem?"..

The experts will have to say for sure, ...

but I think the set screw came loose. Very common (not exclusive to Panerai before anyone panics) and very easy to fix. Have a local watchmaker take a look.

This is most likely ...

and a fix you can do yourself. Small screw near 3 oclock on the movement, it’s come lose. If you put the stem back in and turn the screw about half a turn you’ll be sorted. It’s a 2 minute job for a watchsmith, but as you’re opening the back up you’ll need to get the WR tested, possibly redone.

Had same thing happen with my 000 about a year ago. Took it to my local guy. 3 days and $140 later it was fixed, watch was pressure tested, and back at it.
