Are discounts available on new Panerai these days?

Obviously not at boutiques but how about at ADs? I'm looking at picking up an 01661.

My anecdote is "no." Bought a 1392 last month. Word from the AD was that "the last ten Panerai they've sold were sold without any discount, so no discounts would be given until sales slowed."

On a Carbotech model will be the hardest to get any discounts.

1392 is an old model, no discount? i really think you should change AD.

I haven't worked with an AD recently to purchase, but I was offered discounts on models that were similar to the ones I wanted and went through Boutiques. I would say 10-15% pretty standard. It does feel like Panerai is becoming more popular and selling fast again so it could decrease discounts.

I hope the OP gets a discount and if he does please report back.

All I can say is that in the UK, 1661's are selling used for around 12% off rrp in mint condition.

Thanks everybody; I was able to find an AD in NYC who offered 12% off however I went with a local AD who gave me 9% (couldn't wait for a wire to clear, shipping, etc).

Thats a great discount on a brand new item from an AD.

The 1661 is a great watch, do report back on your experience.

Yeah, most ADs didn't want to discount.

On Amazon there is a seller who has a lot of new ones and I see that they have a 10% discount on the list prices.
I can not give more data because I do not want to violate any pre-established rule of the Forum.

I do not think it is an old model as it is on the Panerai page available.

I bought a Speedmaster on Amazon once to spite the local AD whom I despise. This was well before the pandemic. I’d feel a little spookier about buying a Panerai on Amazon.
