I bought the Pentax 8x42WP from Adorama about 2001 during a visit to New York. I no longer have the original proof of purchase, though I faintly recall posting a warranty card to Pentax from Canada where I was living then. I suppose this means the "worry-free warranty" from Pentax no longer applies.
I have just heard from Pentax USA who state that the binocular will be covered under their 'worry-free' warranty if I send it in with either the proof of purchase -which I do not have - or with a note stating that I am the original owner: which I am. This post is for those in a similar position to mine.
