Panerai replica vs original has used the colors and text on the dial in this Submersible Carbotech collection, including the same watch with the label “Marina Militare”, with green or off-white accents. It wouldn’t be Panerai if they didn’t release some stylistic experiments and variations on similar themes.
Coming back to diver-style watches, the most modern Submersible Carbotech model is this version with a blue dial and updated hands that still looks good after it came out a few years ago. Note that Panerai swiss grade 1 reproductions produces this watch as the 47mm wide PAM01616 and the 42mm wide PAM960.
This larger model features an in-house Panerai movement, while the smaller 42mm-wide version features a Swiss-made automatic movement. Otherwise, differences in product case sizes will only provide more variety for a market that doesn’t all wear the same size watch.
Panerai high quality copy watches black Carbotech material is hard, lightweight and capable of precision machining. What’s more, Carbotech has an attractive grain when cut, giving it a Damascus metal “wood grain” feel. It does look neat and is said to be a combination of carbon and PEEK polymer.
The dive case features 300m water resistance, a unidirectional rotating bezel and a domed sapphire crystal above the dial. Panerai replica watches swiss movement are notoriously difficult to photograph with dial glare due to the curvature of the sapphire crystal. This isn’t a huge deal when looking at the time on a dial in real life, but these aren’t anti-glare crystals either.
The reason why Panerai doesn’t use AR coating on top of the crystal is because it can be scratched off. I get that, but the benefit of more anti-reflective coatings could be an upgrade to an already great wearing experience, and I think it’s worth more experimentation.
The PAM1616 (PAM01616) submersible usa clone watches enclosure is 47mm wide and 16.8mm thick. The shoulder straps are fairly wide at 26mm, but the whole pack fits so comfortably on the wrist that you don’t mind. Like I said, the 42mm wide version of this watch is also for those who like the look but don’t like the size.
The dial is a highlight, and I really like how the classic Submersible dial has been enhanced with updated hands and hour markers made of pure blue luminescent material. The dial features a small seconds subdial and a date window (with a matching black date dial) for the time.
Inside the PAM1616 is the calibre P.9010 automatic movement made by Panerai. Running at 4Hz, it has a three-day power reserve and is designed to be a workhorse for a Panerai knockoff watch for men of this size and nothing else. The smaller 42mm wide Submersible Carbotech uses a different movement, but they are said to have the exact same performance and power reserve.
Speaking of style, the rubber strap that comes with the PAM1616 is pretty neat. It’s got a cool hybrid feel, like something from a professional diver’s watch and something you see in modern video games being worn by characters. All in all, if you want something a little different, this is a very stylish piece, and there are a lot of similar cousin models at Panerai super clone quality watches.
