If your Panerai has polished hands...

...does it bother you if the polished hands are not perfect? Meaning they have some sort of flaw/imperfection on them. Either it be scratches or something else. Not like it’s very noticeable, but at certain angles and with the right lighting, I can see that the hands on my 233 are slightly scratched. And I recently had it serviced... though I can’t be positive that the hands were perfect before the service.

Are your polished hands perfect?
Is it too much to expect the hands to be perfect?

I’ve noticed this issue too on other brands/watches, so it’s probably more common than it should be.

Would bother me for sure...

But my OCD is strong!

If it helps, I have 3 different pieces w/ polished hands and all are perfect. At least as far as I know. Now I'm going to double-check and possibly anger myself in the process.

But I've never had this issue on non-Panerai watches.

I learnt ???

The moment you reach for a loupe to see your watch ? Run don’t walk 😱😱😱

M8 it’s so scary under say 2-5X Mag - but to specifically assess what is on the hands for under $15 u can buy like a 20/50 Time’s magnify then you can have a real idea on the exact issue - but take a BNIB and if you loupe it you will walk - just not run - I swear never loupe your Watches 😱😱 - unless for a specific reason like Brian’s !

Brian one thing to keep in mind when looking for a cheap loupe is the .?...??

Focal length - the crystal will be some mm’s away from the hands ? Make sure you don’t get a really high mag loupe or you will need to be like 1mm from the object matter to focus - basically - the higher the mag the less focal distance simply a 3 Times mag would work 👍🏻

Swing by any jeweler or Watch pop up and borrow a loupe so long as the matter or say debris isn’t corrosion it wouldn’t bother me unless it’s a dress Watch and I am soooooo OCD also - but can live with what it sounds like for Brian - for the hands to be repaired and or cleaned is not hard but also not easy - unless u have a mate who can do it for free or could cost a bunch for recasting kit and anyth8ng else they want to add - hey ?

Swing by my place I’ll do it for ya free and coffee ☕️ is waiting 👌👌
