The new Panerai Luminor submersible 1950 non-magnetic 3-day automatic Replica Watch Titanio PAM01389 brings some neat updates 389, without compromising the original overall execution or design intent. But unless you are crafty Stallone or Parnellisti, that might not be a good thing.
Technically speaking, the 389 is not just the first time it debuted, but also because it shows the first magnetometer from Cheap Panerai Replica, the first ceramic bezel in the Luminor model. This is a rather handsome appearance – introduced a modern, industrial diving watch atmosphere, rigorous, minimalist aesthetic definition of Panerai’s design language in the past 60 years or so.
Many of these features repeat in 1389, which can be largely referred to as updates to existing references rather than a whole new one. Like the original, the 1389 features a titanium case with an iron dial and a soft iron Faraday cage that moves below, keeping it from the many modern dangers of mechanical watches. Hell, it’s even the same strap as before – Panerai Replica Watches excellent 26 x 22 mm accordion rubber diving strap looks as if it was designed specifically for this reference.
Otherwise, nothing has changed since 2014. Now that the hourly index should be more razor-edged, the small second at 9 o’clock is now a cheerful blue, the bright application of the hand and index is now bidirectional, the hue – minute hand blue is the same as the bezel, and all other markers Green.
Most notably, the new 1389 incorporates Panerai Replica latest self-winding movement: the P.9010, which has an internally-manufactured predecessor with the same dual 3-day power reserve but now has an independently adjustable Hour hand – This feature is becoming more common in many modern Panerai models and is a good helper for frequent flights.
What has not changed between 389 and 1389 is that this is a very large 47 mm watch. Yes, it’s a lot lighter than the stainless steel 47mm Best Panerai Replica Review PAM00372, but the weight reduction does not reduce the watch’s visual appeal, which can be overwhelming at many angles. Now, like most Panerai models, the body size of the 1389 has been largely flipped down, leaving a more conservative gap between the front and the front. However, none of these amendments suffices to overcome the wear and tear limit of all except those who have never skipped the Arm Day.
This means that if you like the undeniably cool beauty of the 1389 then there will always be the more traditional 42mm PAM682 Panerai Replica Swiss Movement, but you miss the antimagnetic function and the ceramic bezel as well as the doubling of the dial in the pinch. Jokingly, it is clear that other industries have been responding to smaller sizes – 43 mm seems to be the new 42, from 45 and 47 mm, once dominated Panerai’s collection of modern watches. That’s why another 47mm watch in 2017 actually felt a bit dated – despite its undeniable coolness and classic aesthetic. Although the trend has changed, many stubborn Paneristi still have no other way – which is perhaps why the brand continues to be one of the last acts of this decade’s largest watch movement.
