The use of novel and space-age materials in high-end Perfect Panerai Replica Watches is always fun to follow as a spectator, but it’s far more appreciated when their practical benefits might sometime soon be used in watches that a broader segment can enjoy. That’s rarely the case, but one watch that piqued my interest in this way was the Fake Panerai LAB-ID Luminor 1950 Carbotech 3 Days PAM 700.
There are four innovations Panerai utilized in developing its caliber P.3001/C, starting with a set of mainplates and bridges constructed entirely out of tantalum-based ceramic, removing the need for any kind of lubrication. This oil-free concept also moves into the DLC-coated silicon escapement, which is second in the list of innovations. Thirdly, with the kind of ceramic and DLC use we see here, Panerai Replica Watches has eliminated the need for traditional jewels. Therefore, the movement uses a set of just four DLC-coated jewels that remove the need to lubricate the Incabloc shock system.
On the dial, Panerai uses carbon nanotubes meant to absorb any trace of light that hits it, resulting in a deep, deep black. The blue Super-LumiNova used throughout the numerals and markers on the “sandwich-style” dial pops against the Swiss Panerai Watches black tone and is also incorporated into the hands. It almost reminds me of single beams of light piercing through miles of deep oceanic abyss. Overall, I find the dial to be as legible as it gets considering its high contrast and massive size.
Taking a look at the case back, we find the caliber P.3001/C in all its deep, dark glory. One of my favorite features is the power reserve indicator that uses the same blue accents found on the dial. Power reserve is three days and the movement operates at 21,600vph. For convenience while time setting, Panerai Replica included a seconds reset function that returns the seconds hand to the 12 o’clock position. It’s a feature that seems to grow increasingly popular and is definitely something I can appreciate.
Despite the fact that bronze seemed to be one of the watchfam’s favorite subjects on social media in 2016, the rise of the “modern bronze age” of watches dates back much earlier to 2011 when Panerai acknowledged a small, but growing demand in the micro community for rugged divers cased in bronze. Panerai appears to be looking to replicate that success with the newly announced Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Bronzo PAM 671 Replica, or “Blue Bronzo” – a beautiful and worthy successor to the watch that put bronze into the luxury spotlight and ultimately helped make patina great again.
One detail that we appreciate with the new Best Panerai Replica Review is how all the luminous plots use a creamy “aged” Super-LumiNova – a slight mismatch against the brushed bronze case in its current virgin state, but a pairing that we think will look pretty amazing after a few months of continuous wear. All of the dial text, and even the date window– utilize the same beige Pantone as the indices, yielding much more cohesive visual than the original Bronzo which used green SuperLuminova and gray text.
While we’re on the subject, Panerai’s choice to bring the PAM 671 to market with a blue dial is likely to invite comparison to the Carl Brashear Bronze from Oris, but can you really blame ’em? Blue and bronze look amazing together, and this Panerai Replica Swiss Movement is no exception. Its matte hue springs to life under the bright show lights, but is considerably more subdued in glances from indirect light – again, a dynamic contrasting effect that should look excellent once the case starts to develop some warmer brown tones.
Several key details persist from the original Bronzo – including the 47mm case dimensions, and the Panerai Swiss Replica-manufactured 9000-series automatic caliber which is visible beneath the titanium caseback’s sapphire window. This time around, though, the PAM 671 gets the 9010 Caliber, which is a slightly thinner movement with three more jewels than the 9000 Caliber found in the original PAM 382. Timekeeping-wise, the same 4Hz amplitude and generous 3-day power reserve can be expected. I believe that this newer 9010 Caliber loses the bi-directional winding capability of the 9000, but gains the benefit of an independently adjustable hour hand. Not a bad trade-off when it comes to real-world practicality demanded by frequent travelers.
The Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Acciaio 42mm, takes all of the burly appeal of the 47mm Submersible Fake Watches and trims off a whopping 5mm. For me, and I think for many others who may be “benched” Panerai fans, that 5mm makes a world of difference. This is not the first 42mm Panerai, but it is the first 42mm Submersible, and it opens up the line to a wider audience. The Submersible is not Panerai’s bread and butter, but rather their more niche dive watch, making the choice to go 42mm even more interesting.
Available in steel or rose gold, the steel version has a brushed steel bezel while the Oro Rosso features a black ceramic insert. The usual Best Panerai Luminor Watches crown guard is in place, water resistance is 300m for the steel and 100m for the rose gold, and either model comes fitted to a 22mm black Caoutchouc rubber strap.
Safely housed inside its chunky case, we find Panerai Replica Watches P.9010 movement. This automatic 4Hz movement sports twin barrels to provide 72 hours of power reserve. Being a base Submersible, the P.9010 needs only offer hours, minutes, sub-seconds at nine, and a date display at three. The case back is of the display variety, allowing a view of the manufacture movement within.
On my seven-inch wrist, the 42mm Panerai Luminor Submersible Replica 1950 3 Days Automatic feels great. It’s fun, special, and a dead-on translation of the form into a smaller footprint. The rubber strap is excellent and legibility is, obviously, very good. I especially enjoy the small pop of blue provided by the sub-seconds hand on the steel Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic PAM682. If gold is more your thing, it’s hard to beat the contrast of the gold case alongside the combo of the black dial and ceramic bezel. The lugs are drilled and use screws to mount the strap, so leather or a NATO should be of little difficulty.
