The 42mm Panerai Submersible Replica steals its green hues from the strap of the Marina Militare Carbotech that launched earlier this year. Between this and previous releases, Panerai appears to be going all-in on green, but given the rugged aesthetic of their watches the color combo works quite well.
While Perfect Replica Panerai doesn’t make its case thickness spec available on this piece, I’ll say it’s easily north of 11 or 12mm, but given its casual aesthetics, there’s no considering tucking it under a dress shirt cuff anyway.
Powering the new release is once again Fake Panerai in-house manufacture caliber P.9000. Though basic in function, its specs are anything but. Using a pair of mainspring barrels, the P.9000 pushes a power reserve of 72 hours. It uses a Glucydur balance to improve overall running stability.
This detail paired with Incabloc shock protection and a hefty balance bridge ensure that its clockwork can handle the environments that come with its tool Replica watch status.
In the Chinese Zodiac, the Rat is the first in the 12-year cycle of animals to be featured. 2020 is the Year of the Rat and those born in this year are said to be extremely industrious, thrifty, diligent and positive.
The signature Sparsello style is achieved by first making grooves in the steel which are then inlaid with gold threads in multiple parallel layers.
Panerai Replica first began the Chinese Zodiac series in 2009 with the Year of the Ox, so the Year of the Rat produced for 2020 is the 12th and final animal in the Chinese Zodiac series to be produced using this unique floral style of engraved illustration.
The trusty base watch for all of this Chinese Zodiac magnificence is the Fake Panerai Luminor Sealand 44mm (PAM 00863) model made of brushed stainless steel. The engraved cover protects a grey dial with Arabic numerals at 12 and 6, as well as linear hour markers and luminous dots.
Water-resistant to 100 meters, the Perfect Panerai Replica watchcomes on a gold-colored semi-matt calf strap with beige stitching and features a trapezoid buckle clasp in brushed steel. Also available is a rubber strap in black along with a screwdriver and a special tool for changing the strap.
