Last year’s standout special edition pieces were arguably the series of Radiomir 1940 chronographs rendered in various precious metals, featuring a handwound movement based on the venerable Minerva caliber 13-22; also, the Panerai Replica Radiomir 1940 3 Days Marina Militare Acciaio, which is a homage to the vintage Reference 6152 from the 1940s.
The equation of time complication is rarely seen on Panerai watches, and I believe the last Panerai watch to feature it was the Panerai Replica Watches. For those unfamiliar with this complication, it shows the difference between “true” or “apparent” solar time and “mean” solar time. This is because the length of a day is only exactly 24 hours on four days of the year, the rest of the time it varies between plus and minus 16 and 14 minutes, respectively.
Both Panerai Replica watches have Panerai’s signature sandwich-style dial, gold hands, and ecru lume, giving it a warm and vintage look, not unlike the Luminor 1950 3 Days. At nine o’clock, you have the running seconds with a reset function, and at three o’clock, you have the date window and a circular indicator for the months. The equation of time indicator is displayed using a linear indicator at six o’clock. A power reserve indicator is located on the back of the movement and can be viewed through the Cheap Replica Watches sapphire display case back.
Elsewhere, the Panerai Radiomir 1940 Equation of Time 8 Days Acciaio Replica comes in a 48mm polished case with polished bezel. And because it is done in the 1940s style, it does not have the wire lugs of the regular Radiomir models. It has a screw down crown and a rated water resistance of 100m.
The Panerai Luminar 1950 Equation of Time 3 Days Acciaio comes in the company’s familiar 47mm 1950-style Luminor case with a polished case and bezel.
For many people, the quintessential modern Panerai Replica Watch is the Luminor 1950. This 44mm-wide case is what most people picture when they think of Panerai with is distinctive locking crown-guard system and chunky style.
The clean elegance of the Luminor Marina 1950 dial is difficult to dispute. The dial features the time with subsidiary seconds dial at 9 o’clock and the date at 3 o’clock. The Panerai Replica sandwich-style dial puts a layer of Super-LumiNova underneath the main dial which is seen through the cut-aways at the hour markers. The hands, of course, have additional luminant on them. Darkness viewing is typically really good with a Panerai.
Over the dial is a thick AR-coated sapphire crystal, and the case is water resistant to 300 meters, like any serious dive Cheap Panerai Replica should be. Of course, you also have the trademarked crown guard system which is simple to use. You can wind the crown with the “lock” engaged, and when you unlock it you can then pull out the crown to adjust the time.
Inside the Panerai Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days Automatic PAM328 Fack Watch is Panerai’s in-house made P.9000 automatic movement. It features 72 hours of power reserve operating at a modern 4Hz.
Like the idea of a Panerai Luminor Marina 1950 watch on this bracelet but want a slightly fancier model? Panerai currently offers a few other timepieces in the same family with this bracelet style that might be more up your alley. The first place people go is to the Panerai Replica Watches Review Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days Automatic Titanio PAM342. This is essentially the same watch with a slightly brown dial and titanium case – which means it is going to be lighter and more comfortable.
Brands like Cheap Replica Watches are actually only relatively recently adopting more exotic metals such as bronze, as well as ceramic – owing credit for some of the more assertive and bold experimentation to brands like Richard Mille.
At 47mm wide, the base Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 Replica Watches case wears better than you’d expect with its short, stubby lugs which prevent it from extending too far past your wrist. I like the style of the rotating diver’s bezel, and the case is water resistant to 300 meters. The rear of the watch is in black-colored titanium, and compared to most other materials, such as steel, Carbotech is much lighter in weight – adding to the Panerai Replica Watches wearability.It’s got a cool blue-colored Panerai logo on it, and is the diver’s strap you always wished Seiko made.
Inside the Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 Carbotech 3 Days Automatic PAM616 is the Panerai Replica in-house made Calibre P.9000 automatic movement with three days of power reserve operating at 4Hz. On the dial, you have the time with subsidiary seconds dial and the date. In addition to the aged lume color on the hands and hour markers, you get a new blue color on the dial meant to highlight the “modern” look of the Luminor Submersible Carbotech – and in a lot of ways, it succeeds.
