Panerai Replica was different. The watches were big, bold, and had an air of quality. Even the boxes, made of pear wood, looked incredible. Whether it was a Luminor or a Radiomir, those simpler models in steel were, ironically, like gold dust. I was so focused on the basic Luminor models that I overlooked the brand’s true diver, the Perfect Replica Submersible.
You see, models like the Radiomir, Luminor, and Luminor Marina picked up most of the love. Ok, the Fake Radiomir Watches not as much, but the other two defined the simple looks that most people wanted out of a Panerai.
One might say that the Best Replica Luminor Submersible was the brand’s first clean sheet design, but that’s not entirely accurate. I’m no Paneristi, but I can find two watches that could claim to have a twinkle in their eyes.
I like these early Subs because of their polished cases and bezels. But what I like most is the use of tritium. This must be one of the last years for the mildly radioactive substance, but it translates into some nice aging over time.
It’s missing a proper dive strap, but I’ve never really liked the OEM rubber or velcro bits. And no moaning about wearing leather on a diver. It’s a Fake Panerai after all!
May trends already emerge, blue is holding its ground as a popular dial color, classic designs get a boost, diameters tend to get a little bit smaller, yet will exist next to their larger sized siblings. Another trend that remains strong is that for complicated replica watches.
Panerai Replica joined forces again with explorer Mike Horn, and it resulted in what can be seen as the ultimate Submersible. It features a second time-zone, six-day power reserve, and a tourbillon, but these are not even its most exclusive features.
The case is made from the drive shaft of the Pangea, Mike Horn’s sailing ship, and each of the five owners of this exclusive limited edition will also get to join him on an arctic expedition. With a diameter of 50mm is it a very serious Perfect Replica Panerai watch, but also a rugged one, as it is water-resistant up to 300 meters.
Named EcoPangaea steel, the material is recycled from the discarded drive shaft of Pangaea, the Panerai Replica 35 m sailboat owned by South African conservationist and explorer Mike Horn.
The PAM 1108 is powered by the P.2005/T, a movement Perfect Panerai Replica has used on several other skeleton-tourbillon watches. Hand-wound with a six-day power reserve, the P.2005/T incorporates a second time zone function with a central GMT hand, as well as the novel tourbillon at 10 o’clock.
Unlike conventional tourbillons that rotate on the same plane as the dial, with the balance wheel oscillating the same axis of rotation, the Fake Paneraitourbillon rotates perpendicular to the dial, like a barbecue spit, and at high speed, making one revolution every 30 seconds.
