Hey guys, got any good lobang for service and maintenance (maybe include polishing) of Panerai timepiece, apart from sending back to Richemont?

My Pam has some issues...it doesnt happen all the time, but the watch doesnt seem to "store power" even when i wind it manually or the rotor does it...

i initially thot it could be the mainspring malfunction, but realise that it is likely got to do with the crown...there are certain times the watch runs fine if i somehow manage to push in the crown firmly after say setting the time...but most of the time, it stops after i wind it up...

I'm not sure if anyone here has experience such issues before, but would be glad if anyone of you could share your experience, and how best to get this fixed....

TIA!

Sounds like the gears / parts are worn and need replacement. Problem is who else besides pam have parts for it.

I had this as well. Transitional model, A serial, year 2000 IIRC. My flat four was more pronounced than yours, so I am wondering if Rolex had different degrees of flat-fourness, just to troll people like us

Sorry for my ignorance, but this Barry is reputable? I did some checking - he has a shop at lobby of this VIP hotel?
