Thanks for the info. The reason I ask is because I saw some grey dealer selling the exact same watch at lower price. Hence Iím thinking whether can I get the same price match from AD.
its always at this cross road between grey and AD. so u got to weigh the pros and cons between them, both will get u the international warranty so that's no issues.

ask yourself, is the AD mineral water worth that 1k+ premium over the grey, or that usual sinkie piece of mind thingy worth that 1k premium etc.

but cons of getting grey is full cash, no cc points, no installment etc.

Gentle reminder to Panerai owners, especially for those having the calibre P9000.

Never change the date between 9pm-3am, this may cause the power disc to jam with the date dial causing it to stop the watch completely.

i tried hard many times and they can't even exceed 15% for now.

normal walk in they only start off with 8% standard, usual saying now controlled.

very hard to hit 20% already even if u purchase from them before.
Hmmm, questions is which outlet you went? I trust you tried, hour glass, cortina, watches of Switzerland, sincere and the tai hong hung ?

Also my mode of payment is always cash, yours is similar?

i tried a few you mentioned. so mode of payment makes a difference? or you are quite regular with them?

your mode of payment is always cash, thats very impressive. my mode of payment is half cash half card, one time experience only.

the rest of my watches are all via carousell, cash. i mean its just my own views, if i wanna do full cash, why still go ADs? unless its just for building relationship purposes, which comes at a premium, which makes me think if the premium is worth anot, cos i ain't rich.

if AD can price match grey, they all can go eat dust liao.

is like going to car AD and ask them price match PI

Hi all, would like to get some advise on this deal..

Seller back out from watch at AD but claims he paid in full.

I will go together and upon warranty in my name I'll complete the deal.

Is this normal practice? As long warranty in my name means watch is mine right? First time dealing like this.

Appreciate it!
