Bestwatchuse.com is releasing two new gold watches this month as part of its Luminor Due – 42mm series, the PAM1041 and PAM1042.
The two new watches both use the Luminor Due Replica– 42mm case design, but are differentiated in their dial colors, with the option for either cream or black. The 42-mm cases are made of Panerai Goldtech™ — a proprietary gold-alloy case material— and are in the pillow-shaped Luminor stylw, with its distinguished crown guard and straight lugs.
The dial of the model should also be familiar to Perfect Replica Panerai fans, with the sunray black and cream-colored options featuring either applied or sandwich-style beige hour markers, with large Arabic numerals at the 12 and 6 o’clock positions and more basic bar indices at each other hour mark.
At 3 o’clock is a small date window, while a small seconds subdial appears at 9 o’clock. Sweeping over the Super-LumiNova-accented dial are two sword hands for the hour and minute.
On the surface, Perfect Replica Panerai has three main watch case shapes: Radiomir, Luminor, and Submersible. However, if we dig a little deeper, we’ll quickly see that there are variations of these main case styles that warrant their own sub-collections. For example, at a glance, the Panerai Luminor and the Luminor 1950 cases look identical.
Panerai Luminor Vs. Luminor 1950 Cases
If you look at the Fake Luminor and the Luminor 1950 from the front, they appear to have near-identical cases. However, when viewed from the side, the differences immediately reveal themselves. The Luminor cases have shorter lugs, a downward sloping case band, and a flatter crystal. The profile view of the Luminor is streamlined, following a simpler arch from the tip of one lug to the tip of the opposite lug.
On the other hand, a profile view of the Panerai Luminor 1950 Replica Watch case reveals longer lugs, a U-shaped case band, and a domed crystal to mimic the acrylic crystals used on vintage models. Thanks to the U-shaped middle section, the case structure of the Luminor 1950 is more elaborate than its “Bettarini” counterpart.
Overall, while both the Luxury Fake Panerai Luminor and the Luminor 1950 are based upon the Panerai 6152/1 watch from 1950, the former features a looser and more modern interpretation of the case while the latter adheres far more closely to the original.
