The new Panerai Luminor Blu Mare 44 mm PAM01085 Replica – blu mare translate as “blue sea” – retains the traditional design codes of the Luminor plus a fashionable blue dial.
A colour that’s been in vogue for a couple of years, the Replica Watches blue dial gives the Luminor Blu Mare a slightly more elegant and contemporary feel than the typical Panerai, a useful quality for someone who likes the functional Panerai design but prefers lighter colour palette.
With the vintage originals designed as functional instruments for navy frogmen of the Second World War, the new Panerai Luminor Replica is expectedly utilitarian, with large, eminently simple hands and indices – very much the quintessential Panerai dial.
Similarly, the case is classic Luminor with the signature oversized crown-lock bridge. Large and squarish at 44 mm wide and 13.05 mm tall, it wears well thanks to its manageable case length and short, sloping lugs.
And as is traditional for Panerai, the lugs featured screw bars to hold the band, allowing for easy switching of straps. The Swiss Quality Fake Luminor Blu Mare is sold with two straps, blue calfskin and blue rubber.
