You should do some research before commenting
Early Panerai Radiomir cases were designed by Rolex and the watches used Rolex movements. Panerai were military suppliers from 1930s - 1990s.

@OP - I would hang on to the 389 and maybe switch out the strap to freshen its appeal (one of the fun aspects of Panerai ownership). Taking a big hit and then buying another watch that will also depreciate (if not as much) makes no sense to me. Nice to have some contrast in a collection.

Keep the Panerai and just wear it. They're beautiful watches.

You have already taken the hit, you just have not realized it yet.

You are not wearing it, sell it and move on.

I don't have blnr but have coke gmtii and it's my most worn watch by far. I'm sure you'll love blnr. As for panerai, it's a shame about their depreciation. I get the crown and whole ugly aspect as some think, but still I personally like it for its uniqueness. As a matter of fact I was looking at submersible just recently while looking for divers watch. Hell id take it from your hands for 3k, but if I were you I'd keep it.

Panerai has been around since 1860, which is about 45 years longer than Rolex, so it's hardly a 'trendy' brand.

That's about the most favorable view of panerai you could have. How many of those years did they continuously make watches? Farm equipment and other stuff doesn't really count.

I have no idea what you're point is or what you're driving at here but as far as I'm aware, they've made timepieces continually from the beginning. I'm no authority on Panerai so I'm happy to be educated by someone with knowledge of the brand. I'm not interested in BS from haters and the ignorant.

I'm a fan of Panerai. I wear them out of love for the brand and the timepieces themselves. No one puts a gun to your head to make you buy them. Wear what you love and love what you wear

Yep. That's why I've stayed with Rolex. I don't ever plan to sell, but you never know. Buying right is also key. The only reason I have an AP is because it was an incredible deal. As long as I don't beat the crap out of it, I can flip it and get all my money back. However, it's my favorite SS watch and I have zero intentions of selling.

They manufactured depth gauges, compasses and other precision instruments for the navy.

Given the shared heritage of Rolex and Panerai, it's disappointing to read the inevitable negative comments in these types of threads. Doesn't happen on P.com (about Rolex).

Regarding value retention, Panerai does no worse than many other brands.

I agree with that but his question was simple for me. Should I sell a watch I don't like as much that may depreciate further to buy another watch I will like more that won't? Seems like a no brainer for me.

Sure - and that's ultimately up to the OP. The loss will only be realised when the watch is sold/traded. If he decides to proceed, then selling privately would be a better option than trading.

I was just responding to the negative and inaccurate comments made by one poster in particular.

Flip it and take the hit. It only hurts until you get a new watch.

I agree. Take the hit now - I decided to ''take the hit'' on 3 Breitlings under a year old and it was severe to say the least, but I bought 3 Rolex to replace them and I couldn't be happier.

Best wishes with your decision!

I agree too and also with the way you have phrased it. Why hang on to something if you're not enjoying it? It's the ignorant Panerai-bashing from people, one in particular who has no knowledge of the brand, that annoys me. I don't particularly like Omega and AP but I don't rubbish them. They make fine watches but they don't blow my skirt up, that's all (I love the look of the Omega Deep Black on paper but didn't like it in the flesh)

Spot on, Clive.

I would more than happily swap my BLNR for a 389, although I'd more likely go 1389 now

I am a big believer that anything I own should serve a purpose. If I have something that is not being used, I sell it and replace it with something that gets used or just keep the money. Now if money is no object, then keep the stuff you don't use... But I've always felt that someone else may get more enjoyment out of something I am not so might as well let it go.

3k on a watch worth what? 6-7k? Yeah that's rough. I don't know if I could stomach that. Maybe try to sell it on your own?

Have you considered selling it yourself? You can probably easily half that loss if you did it yourself.

I understand its a Rolex forum and I do own a rolex but people really bash panerai without the knowledge. Having said that they do depreciate faster and don't retain their value.

I definitely stirred up some feelings......

Maybe ill just get the BLNR and keep the Panerai.....what the hell lol

Try to minimize your hit. Sell the Panerai privetly if you can and buy the BLNR slightly pre owned. There are deals out there for $8000 on the BLNR pre owned.
