    Watch Authentication

    Hi Guys,

    quick question: if i was to buy a grey Panerai or pre-owned from direct sellers, when do i go to do a watch authentication or verification?

    thanks in advance

    Good luck
    That's why I mentioned to check with them.

    And why I thought they may be able to do it because I saw it personally that Henry (the boss) managed to identify a fake watch brought in by a watch dealer for cleaning/polishing, some years back, while I was inside the shop. He was very pro; experienced.

    Sounds like a plan. Seems then the only thing left is to confirm with seller. Only issue is how long is the wait before they say need servicing, etc? a few days or can get back same day?

    I guess they have changed their previous stance and make it a profitable business. a few years back if I recall correctly it was only $80....

    Not sure where you get this information. OP/Richemnont stopped providing authentication services about 2 years ago. You could send in the piece for servicing and if its a fake, they will tell you.
