We’ve already touched upon a couple of the new Radiomirs that Panerai has revealed for 2023, the Cheap Panerai Annual Calendar PAM01363 and PAM0432 Replica. However, we’ve yet to talk about our personal favourite, the Panerai Radiomir California PAM01349.
The watch continues Panerai’s trend of downsizing some of their classic design elements. This is the first time they’ve produced a California style dial at 45mm, having only done so at 47mm previously. Panerai Replica Watches “California dial” is one where the numerals of the hour track are given in a combination of Roman and Arabic numerals split along a horizontal axis. For clarity, the 3, 6, and 9 indexes are typically dashes.
California dials were first popularised by Rolex and Panerai during World War Two, created in order to prevent coordination errors between military elements. The idea being that it’s easy to read on the go because it can be read from any angle as the display itself provides orientation.
For the Best Replica Panerai Radiomir California PAM01349 Watches, they’ve paired the display with a deep olive green base and an eSteel cushion case with their new Brunito finishing. The finish gives it a distressed aesthetic like a well-worn vintage timepiece with dark weathering and faux scratches. It suits the PAM01349 incredibly well as it all comes together to create the aesthetic of a genuine heritage military timepiece.
Housed inside is the Panerai Replica Review P.5000 calibre with astonishing 8-day power reserve. It’s the same one as used in the Otto Giorni and we see that ultimately, the California and the Otto Giorni (which we’ll be covering in more detail soon) are the same watch with different dials. Honestly, that’s no bad thing as they’re great watches and each version offer something different.
The Panerai Radiomir Otto Giorni Replica is one of the new watches that Panerai launched at the start of the month alongside a suite of other Radiomirs like the California, Quaranta and Annual Calendar. Of the four new pieces, it was the one I most wanted to try out because it features several new elements alongside some quintessential Panerai characteristics.
By ‘quintessential Cheap Panerai Replica characteristic’ I’m obviously talking about its size – 45mm in diameter. On paper that looks like a large number, a number large enough to make most collectors think twice. But on the wrist, I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to wear. That’s thanks in a large part to the wire lugs and cushion case shape, both of which mean it sits incredibly flat against my wrist.
Unlike an integrated strap where the shape of the case and lugs essentially force the strap to flair out from the body of the watch, the Panerai Radiomir Replica Watches allows the strap to be virtually perpendicular to the case immediately, so that it fits securely on even slim arms.It helps that the case features Panerai’s new Brunito finishing and the presence that the watch naturally has really shows it off.
Brunito finishing is the term Panerai have given to the faux weathering on the case. It’s achieved through a process of giving the eSteel case a dark PVD coating that’s then hand-worn away to give it a weathered, vintage appearance.The Best Replica Panerai Watches doesn’t just look weathered, it is genuinely weathered, the look just wasn’t achieved through the natural processes of time. The vintage look is enhanced by the gradient blue dial that fades towards the edges, matching the darkness of the case.
I’m actually a fan of the concept, it means you can get the vintage aesthetic without the troubles of finding an actual vintage piece in good condition for a reasonable price – although I appreciate that there will be diehard Paneristi who don’t believe there’s any substitute for the original article. The other reason I’m a fan is it allows you to have the vintage look while also having Panerai Replica Review seminal P.5000 calibre.
The P.5000 has a frankly astonishing 8-day power reserve, which is what the name Otto Giorni stands for. It means that once wound, I could’ve taken it off and left it in its case and it would still have been ticking by the time I needed to send it back to Panerai.It’s also incredibly satisfying to wind with its fluted, oversize crown.
Ultimately, I learned that I shouldn’t be as afraid of large watches as I previously was. If they’re well executed and carefully designed as the Perfect Radiomir Otto Giorni Replica Watchesso clearly is, then they can be just as comfortable and look just as good as a much smaller timepiece.
There are five timepieces in the collection including a time and date model, a GMT, a chronograph and a his & her pair of Panerai Luminor Dues Replica. Since there’s a lot to discuss, let’s trim the sails and get under way.
Panerai Luminor Quaranta Steel DLC Luna Rossa PAM01408
As part of the Luminor Quaranta Replica Watches China sub-collection, this Luna Rossa model has a 40mm diameter case, putting it solidly in the small to mid-size end of the spectrum. It has the characteristic cushion shape that will be familiar to anyone who’s ever looked at a Panerai before with its circular bezel and the Luminor’s signature crown guard. As the name suggests, it’s made from steel with a DLC coating that makes it super tough and gives it a black colouration.
The Panerai Replica Buy Now dial is relatively understated with a classy sunray finishing in a dark aquatic blue. It follows the navy and red colour scheme of the Luna Rossa by pairing that blue dial with a red small seconds hand at 9 o’clock, which is structurally mirrored at 3 by the date aperture. It’s also a sandwich dial, which means there are two layers with the bottom layer coated in lume and the top layer featuring cut-out markers to reveal the lume below. That’s how the recessed look of the indexes is achieved.
Panerai Luminor Quaranta BiTempo Luna Rossa PAM01404
Second in the Luna Rossa 2023 collection is the Best Panerai Replica Review. Once again, it’s a Quaranta, which means it’s got a 40mm cushion case in steel this. However, this time the grey colour of the steel is left visible with a combination of polished and brushed finishes. The contrast between the bare steel and DLC version is interesting because the finishing on the exposed metal gives it a more luxurious appearance without giving up too much in terms of durability.
BiTempo roughly means ‘two time’ and in wristwatch terms that equates to a dual time zone function, evidenced by the presence of two hour hands on the central hand stack. It’s a useful complication for regular travellers who need to keep track of the time in multiple places around the world. For sailors travelling the globe, its application is obvious.
Powering this edition is the Fake Panerai Watches P.900/GMT calibre, a modified version of the P.900 with that additional GMT module. GMT is another name for dual time zone functions except that GMT watches traditionally use a 24-hour scale for their secondary zone while the BiTempo uses a 12-hour system. Beyond that, it has the same specs as the standard P.900, including crucially the 3-day power reserve.
Panerai Luminor Chrono Carbotech™ Luna Rossa PAM01519
The Panerai Luminor Chrono Carbotech Replica is one of Panerai’s Experience editions, which means that purchasing the watch gives the owner access to an exclusive event designed to highlight the strengths of the watch.I don’t think it will be any surprise that this Experience edition involves meeting the Luna Rossa team for some sailing-related activities.
The watch itself is 44mm in diameter with a Carbotech case. Carbotech is Panerai’s proprietary material made from a composite of carbon fibre and PEEK, giving it supremely lightweight and durable qualities as well as a uniform, layered appearance. It’s a chronograph model so the internal bezel is adorned with a tachymeter for measuring speed and distance.
Moving on to the dial, it features the same sunray brushed blue design as the other Panerai Luna Rossa Replica watches we’ve looked at so far. Interrupting the blue is a pair of black bicompax subdials with snailed finishing. At 9 o’clock is the usual small seconds indicator while at 3 o’clock is a 30-minute chronograph counter. The central hand stack is also in stealthy black, featuring hours, minutes and chronograph seconds. It’s powered by the P.9200 calibre with 42-hour power reserve.
Panerai Luminor Due Luna Rossa PAM01378/81
The only differences between them are the fact that one is 42mm while the other is 38mm and they have different straps. At those sizes they make for a good his & hers set but to be honest, they’re perfectly unisex and I find myself looking at the 38mm as one of the few Panerais that wouldn’t dwarf me.
As for the top quality fake watches dials, they’ve deviated away from aquatic blue for a neutral white, although the team colours are still represented via the red seconds hands. It’s surprising how much a simple colour swap can change the character of a watch. The blue feels active and ready to jump on board and set sail, the white is more ready to pop open a bottle of fizz in the boat clubhouse.
All five watches here except the 38mm Luxury Fake Panerai Watches For Sale are presented on bi-material straps consisting of rubber and textiles for a flexible, durable and water-resistant design in blue and red. The 38mm is instead on a Saffiano calf leather strap in white with a red stripe, hammering home that it’s for admiring the water, not jumping in it.
