Having come off a decade when it was one of the hottest brands in the world, Panerai has now returned to the trenches with simpler, more affordable replica watches. That direction is exemplified by its two latest launches, which package Panerai’s signature style with an in-house movement and accessible price.
In contrast, the Panerai Replica P.6000 is in-house, and though also loosely derived from the same Unitas, has upgraded functionality and construction, most notably with a longer, 72-hour power reserve.
The Perfect Fake Panerai Radiomir Logo 3 Days Acciaio is steel, 45mm in diameter and rated to 100m. It’s hand-wound with a solid, screw-down back.
Replica Panerai Radiomir 8 Days 45mm-It has a vintage-esque style – not really a one for one remake – combined with an in-house, eight-day movement. Most unusually, the steel case has a faux aged finish that Panerai is trying for the first time.
The new Radiomir is not a remake of a vintage Fake Panerai, but rather it’s a mix-and-match of various elements, including the engraved logo and “8 Giorni” emblem at three. Traditionalists might find it impure, but that was essentially the founding formula for the modern Panerai company.
The result is a good-looking watch that approximates the look of a vintage Perfect Panerai Replica while offering modern conveniences like a long power reserve.
The coolest detail of all – but arguably the most out of place since it wasn’t found on any vintage originals remotely resembling this watch- is the emblem at three o’clock. Translating as “8 Days Patented”, the logo boosts the retro feel of the watch, while also giving the dial a bit of symmetry.
And vintage vibes are completed by the highly domed sapphire crystal that mimics the PlexiGlas found on vintage Panerai Replica. Importantly, the sapphire crystal passes the test: it is sufficiently domed that is slightly distorts the edge of the dial when viewed from an angle.
Panerai decided to start making 42mm versions of the Perfect Replica Luminor Submersible, variants of the model were effectively considered the biggest and most indestructible among the brand’s extensive lineup.It measures 47mm across and is powered by the brand’s P.9000 automatic movement.

While most Radiomir models tap out at 45mm, their flat cushion cases and wire lugs make these pieces feel quite substantial when strapped on the wrist.As its name suggests, the manually wound model boasts an 8-day power reserve, delivered by its P.2002/9 caliber. It uses the classic ‘sandwich dial’ configuration often seen from Panerai Replica Watch, with a subtle cream faux patina color for the luminous material on its hands and indices.
