OK I sent my 233 in around 3/15 as it was running fast and the warranty was about to run out. 3/30 I got a letter from Panerai saying they found a few issues they were not happy with & they would repair them all under warranty. I was told I would have my watch back "shortly" A few days later I got a "Delay Letter" stating my watch would not be back till 6/30. Now were at 7/10 and still no watch and no word from Panerai. The delay letter blamed the delay on certain parts not being available here in the US and them needing to be obtained overseas... I am VERY upset! I want to write them a letter. Anyone have any suggestion as to what I should say and who I should make it attention to? I own a 090, 233 & I just purchased a 26. I love how I can change the bands so easily and have fun with the watch BUT this is REALLY starting to leave a sour taste in my mouth for Panerai! I have their Dallas address as that is their US service center and where I was instructed to send my watch but I want to send a copy of my complaint to anyone at Panerai that may actually care.
