At that point, I had never owned a watch from Panerai Replica. However, I really liked the PAM00113’s large case, big numerals, and, at that time, uncommon white dial. I had seen and tried on the Panerai Luminor and Luminor Base models with black dials, but never in white.
A Panerai with a white dial
When the watch arrived, the big wooden box made an instant and lasting impression on me. Inside was the watch, an additional rubber strap, and a screwdriver to change the strap yourself.
I never ended up wearing it on the included rubber strap. I did, however, get my fair share of other straps suitable for the immense 24mm The Best Panerai Replica lugs. Alligator, denim, calf, and even beaver tail — I had them all. Swapping straps always resulted in a new look for your watch. There was seemingly no need — at least for a while — to buy another watch to scratch that ever-present itch watch enthusiasts have.
But, as always, new things arrive on the horizon. Eventually,this Panerai PAM00113 had to make way for something new.
Enter the Submersible QuarantaQuattro Bianco PAM01226
Panerai surprised me with another white-dialed creation — the PAM01226. It is the Submersible QuarantaQuattro Bianco Replica Review, also known as the 44mm Submersible with a white dial.
Panerai scaled back the more typical 47mm Submersible case and introduced a 42mm version in 2016. Now Panerai offers something in the middle, introducing the 44mm Submersible case.
In fact, this case size is not totally new for the Luxury Panerai Submersible Replica Watches . The first ones from 1998 also came in 44mm cases. In the past, however, I completely ignored the Panerai Submersible, as the design was just not for me. When I look back now on the PAM00087, or even the fairly basic PAM00024, I think that they’re pretty cool and handsome watches in hindsight.
On the wrist
Strapping on the Panerai Submersible QuarantaQuattro Bianco PAM01226 Perfect Replica had an effect I didn’t expect.But the combination of the steel bezel, the green strap, and the white dial simply works for me. It would probably have been different if the bezel were black ceramic or another contrasting color.
The Submersible, however, looks good and robust, and frankly, the history of Panerai is so “all over the place”, that my purist’s view on this brand has faded a bit.
Super Clone Panerai’s PAM01226 comes on a green rubber strap, which is easy to swap for a different-colored rubber strap or a 24mm leather strap of choice. You don’t need screwdrivers anymore, risking scratches on the case. Just use the quick-release button under the lug to take off the strap.
Inside the PAM01226 is Panerai for sale near me caliber P.900. This is not an in-house-developed movement, but rather a Richemont Group movement found in other watches from the group’s brands. At this price point, a true in-house movement would have been nice, but I am also of the opinion that the whole “in-house” thing is rather overrated.
