PAM00682, aka the Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Acciaio 42mm Replica Watches, takes all of the burly appeal of the 47mm Submersible 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.
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 Perfect Panerai Replica 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 Fake Panerai Watches 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 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 Copy Watches. 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.
The Perfect Panerai Mare Nostrum Chronograph PAM716 Replica Watches measures just 42mm wide. This is not a new-found thing either. There were some limited editions produced in Panerai’s pre-Vendome era. This, by the way, essentially means pre-Richemont.Panerai introduced the reference 5218-301/A, a 42mm-wide piece that is remarkably close in its appearance to this new Panerai Mare Nostrum PAM716.
This neatly leads us to the new-ish Panerai Mare Nostrum Chronograph PAM716, which is equipped with a 42mm-wide, 50 meter water resistant case in stainless steel, a blue dial with tan colored luminescent indices and main hands, a km/h bezel, and a weird and unusual OP XXXIII movement which is actually an ETA 2801 with a Dubois-Depraz module for the chronograph. It has an expectedly measly 42-hour power reserve – no fancy Panerai Replica Watches in-house movement here, arguably because it would not have made much sense for Panerai to expensively develop an in-house chronograph movement that fits into a 42mm case.
The km/h bezel is, to put it kindly, a mysterious addition on a watch supposedly designed for ship commanders. Add to this the fact that this being a regular tachymeter scale, any other unit of speed would work just the same. Take this as a hint on how many people actually use the tachymeter scales on their Panerai luxury watches.
On a positive note, the Mare Nostrum Chronograph is one exceedingly unusual Panerai. The traditional, piston-style chronograph pushers, the tachymeter bezel, the small case size, the nicely curved, long lugs, and the blue-tan color combination individually would make any Fake Panerai Watches the odd one out. This could fire back though – the Mare Nostrum has a patchy history, with hardly any documentation or actual pieces remaining from whichever era it actually belongs – and this will raise a few flags for the cautious, super-nerdy collector who this is pretty much exclusively aimed for.
All this noted, it is good to see Panerai do something out of the ordinary, leaving the Luminors and Radiomirs on the side for a moment and presenting a look so scarcely encountered from them – I wouldn’t be surprised that Swiss Panerai Watches is actually testing the waters here, as I would love to see more unusual and refreshing designs.
