Panerai has created a unique version of its Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic watch. As the name suggests, the iconic, Fake 47mm Luminor Submersible case has been made in bronze and paired with a brown dial, for a very distinctive, vintage look.
Swiss Panerai Replica association with the Royal Italian Navy is already well-documented, so I won’t bother going into detail about it again here but the connection with the sea and diving is self-evident. Not surprisingly, the watch is rated water resistant to 300m.
The watch is of course based on the Special Top SwissLuminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Bronzo – 47mm. Inside is the in-house P.9010 calibre, an automatic mechanical movement beating at 28,800 v/ph and offering a max power-reserve of 3 days thanks to a double barrel system. Completing the look is a brown leather strap, which will age nicely with the bronze case and a titanium buckle.
Replica Panerai is synonymous with large, robust, instrument dive watches. After all, that’s how the brand was conceived back in the 1930s. The brand wasn’t shy about making a 45mm watch its standard offer, and even to introduce 50mm pieces.Today, downsizing goes a few steps further, with the introduction of thePanerai Luminor Due 38mm Replica Watches.
Panerai now offers watches under 40mm! And no, they aren’t, as such, made for ladies – even if, of course, some of our female readers will spot an opportunity to finally wear a Best Panerai Replica. Because Panerai is first and foremost a brand for men, these new Panerai Luminor Due 3 Days Automatic Acciaio 38mm PAM00755 and PAM00903 are made first and foremost for them.
A diameter of 44mm or more is just too large on my wrist – or I should have played the game of “voluntarily oversized”. When Panerai introduced the 42mm Panerai Replica Watches Luminor Due collection in 2016, with their thinner cases, I should have been happy… but not entirely.
The new diameter of 38mm entirely alters the perception of the Panerai Luminor Due on the wrist… and it’s not just about the area covered by the Panerai Replicawatch. Of course, this results in a watch that finally sits on the wrist and not over the wrist.
Like the Panerai Replica Watches non-limited version, the case – including the specially engraved caseback – is made from lightweight titanium. This special edition, however, receives a black DLC coating all over, giving it a very stealthy appearance. The unidirectional rotating bezel used for tracking elapsed time is also in black DLC-coated titanium and features a matte black ceramic insert with a luminous graduated scale.
On the right-hand side of the case, Panerai’s trademark crown guard ensures the crown can’t be accidentally accessed during a dive. On the Luxury Panerai Replica opposite side are the two screw-in pushers at 8 and 10 o’clock for controlling the flyback chronograph. Engraved on the solid screw caseback is a rendering of Guillaume Néry free-diving, along with his signature and the depth of his final record dive: 126 metres, achieved with a single breath.
According to Panerai, the colour scheme was inspired by the seas of Polynesia, hence the use of this unusual turquoise blue for the chapter ring, chronograph seconds hand and some of the text on the Swiss Panerai Replica Watches dial. What makes it for me though is the stark contrast against the blackness of the case. This just makes the dial really pop in my opinion.
Hours and minutes are displayed centrally, as are the chronograph seconds and minutes. Running seconds are shown on the sub-dial at 9 o’clock Panerai Replica UK and elapsed chronograph hours are counted at 3 o’clock. All the hands have lume, and legibility is further improved in low-light conditions thanks to applied luminous white dots and indexes.
The new PAM00983 comes on a Panerai Replica Watchpersonalized black rubber strap with a trapezoidal titanium buckle. Designed to be worn in the water for long periods of time, it’s comfortable on the wrist. The strap is probably not really suited for office attire, but then again neither is this watch.
