When you look at Panerai replica watches that have been modeled on their historical predecessors, and, like them, have stationary bezels and leather straps, do you ever wonder if frogmen really wore the original versions on their dives?
The Quality Fake watch served far more as a navigational instrument: for example, a diver could cover a partial stretch leading toward his ultimate destination by swimming along a preset compass course for a predetermined length of time. There was no practical way to measure the swimmer’s speed, so minutes markings weren’t very important.
Perfect Panerai Replica contributed greatly to improving nighttime legibility by developing its own light-emitting luminous substance for the Radiomir and later replacing it in the Luminor with a similarly bright but less strongly radioactive material.
The sandwich-style dial was equally important to increased legibility. The dial consists of a lower disk bearing the luminous substance and an upper disk from which the indexes and numerals have been cut out.
The Panerai Replica Watch sandwich-style dial is also the reason for the distinctive open shape of the numeral “6”: its inner part must be connected to its outer part. To make a virtue of this necessity, and to create a handsome dial despite functional restrictions, is a feat that could probably have been achieved only by Italian designers.
All three new Perfect Replica Watches use a 44-mm traditional Luminor case, thick on the wrist at 15.65 mm and featuring the series’ distinctive, patented crown guard. The cases available are one in sandblasted titanium, one in Carbotech, and one in the new Fibratech material, which is constructed from “natural and sustainable eco-fibers” and uses basalt rock as its base material.
The Panerai Replica titanium PAM01117 model opts for a blue sunray dial, while the two other references use a gray sunburst style; all the dial feature the brand’s distinctive sandwich construction, with Arabic numerals at three of the quarter hours broken up by tick markers and a 3 o’clock date window. Toward the 9 o’clock position is a subtle seconds counter, while passing over the dial are two long, sword-style hands.
Highlighting all three designs is the new array of luminous accents — with the crown guard and crown proper both featuring the glow-in-the-dark material, as well as the dial and its outer surrounding ring. Each of the models also features the unconventional detail of luminous threading on their blue-and-blackFake Panerai Sportech straps.
Each of the new watches is powered by the automatic, in-house P.9010 Calibre, capable of a 72-hour power reserve. The movement is protected by a solid caseback engraved with the words “70 Years Warranty,” which both honors the 70-year anniversary, and guarantees the working order of the Panerai Replicawatches for a quite literal, and impressive, seventy years. All of the models boast a 300-meter water resistance.
Together, the three new watches channel the technological forward thinking that Best Copy Panerai has taken on over the past several years. Opting for new and uncommon case materials, and further for ultra-bright lume on the dial, case, and strap, Panerai is obviously making a statement with its 2020 celebration of the Luminor, which first lit up wrists in the dark over half a century ago.
