For the first time, most of us were introduced to Panerai’s Reference 389, his punching and kicking in “Thessaloniki 3” in 2014, which is generally based on unscrupulous Sylvester Stallone’s wrist on. In many ways this is a watch equipped for such a movie – equally striking, over-the-top, but a bit past, probably the best preserved for this type of longtime fan. The new Panerai Luminor submersible 1950 Replica non-magnetic 3-day automatic Titanio PAM01389 brings some tidy updates to the 389, without compromising the original overall execution or design intent. But unless you are crafty Stallone or Parnellisti, that might not be a good thing.
Technically, the 389 is not just the first time it debuted, but also because it shows the first ceramic bezel in the Luminor model. Cheap Panerai Replica production of the first anti-magnetic watch. This is a rather handsome appearance – introduced a modern, industrial diving watch atmosphere, rigorous, minimalist aesthetic definition of Panerai’s design language in the past 60 years or so.
Many of these features repeat in 1389, which can be largely referred to as updates to existing references rather than a whole new one. Like the original, the 1389 features a titanium case with an iron dial and a soft iron Faraday cage that moves below, keeping it from the many modern dangers of mechanical watches. Hell, it’s even the same strap as before – Panerai Replica Watches excellent 26 x 22 mm accordion rubber diving strap looks as if it was designed specifically for this reference.
Most notably, the new 1389 incorporates Panerai’s latest self-winding movement: the P.9010, which has an internally-manufactured predecessor with the same dual 3-day power reserve but now has an independently adjustable Hour hand – This feature is becoming more common in many modern Best Panerai Replica Review models and is a good helper for frequent flights.
What has not changed between 389 and 1389 is that this is a very large 47 mm watch. Yes, this is a lot lighter than the stainless steel 47mm PAM00372, but the weight reduction does not reduce the visual effect of the watch, which is likely to be overwhelming at most angles. Now, like most Best Panerai Replica Site models, the body size of the 1389 has been largely flipped down, leaving a more conservative gap between the front and the front.
This means that if you like the undeniably cool beauty of the 1389 then there will always be the more traditional 42mm PAM682, but you miss the antimagnetic function and the ceramic bezel as well as the doubling of the dial in the pinch. Jokingly, it is clear that other industries have been responding to smaller sizes – 43 mm seems to be the new 42, from 45 and 47 mm, once dominated Panerai Replica Swiss Movement collection of modern watches. That’s why another 47mm watch in 2017 actually felt a bit dated – despite its undeniable coolness and classic aesthetic. While this trend has changed, many stubborn Paneristi still will not have any other ways – which is perhaps why the brand continues to be the last of the biggest watch trends in a decade.
