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.
Panerai Replica implementing the use of technical materials, among the first we find the PAM683 and PAM959, in a 42 mm steel case with ceramic bezel. The first sports black dial and rubber strap, while the second features the shark-gray dial whose granulate mimics the skin of the shark, and the same blue strap as the unidirectional rotating bezel ring.
The Panerai BMG-TECH Replica is the material chosen to build the 47 mm case of the PAM799, an extremely robust and resistant amorphous metallic crystal that is combined with a Carbotech bezel. Inside it beats the P.9010 caliber, a mechanism with two kites that give it an autonomy of 72 hours.
The Carbotech is also a leading actor in the PAM960 and PAM1616 Replica Watches thanks to its case and bezel. With the same design, the first measures 47 mm in diameter and implements the P.9010 caliber, while the second adopts a more contained measure of 42 mm and uses the more modest OPXXXIV caliber.
Already within the Submersible Marina Militare, Perfect Replica Panerai presented us with two models entirely manufactured in Carbotech: case, bezel and dial. The PAM961 and PAM979 measure 47 mm in diameter, and only differ in the color of the indexes, hands and strap: in the first they are military green, and in the second they are white and the black strap.
Presented with a 47mm AISI 316L polished steel case and bezel, this Perfect Replica Panerai features the new intense blue sun-brushed finish and sandwich structure dial with luminous Arabic numbers and large hour-markers, hour and minute hands, and small seconds dial at 9 o’clock.
Through the clear case back, we admire the rotor with “Officine Panerai” finely cut out along the edge. Beneath it we discover the skeleton work of the bridges and barrels with polished chamfered edges. This timepiece, water-resistant to 5 bar, Panerai Replica with dark blue alligator strap with a red gold buckle.
This versatile 42 mm polished stainless steel case and bezel with patented crown-protecting device in brushed steel and a see-through sapphire crystal on the back is fitted with the in-house P.9001 automatic caliber with a 3 day power reserve, indicated on the back.
Each Perfect Replica Watch in this special series is presented in a blue box that contains a second strap made of rubber, the tool for changing the strap, and a screwdriver.
