Panerai introduced the Luminor Base Logo 3 Days, a new take on a quintessential Replica model, now equipped with an in-house calibre instead of the OP 1 Calibre and priced below 5K.Even though its case is DLC-coated titanium and inside is an 8-day movement.

With this pair of new watches, PAM00753 and PAM00754, Panerai reissues the classical and simpler versions of the Panerai Radiomir Replica in a basic, tool-ish and no-frills package. Both watches are modern reinterpretations of older models that used to be in the collection, at that time powered by the externally-sourced OP 1 Calibre.
Design-wise, both models rely on the iconic and well-known cushion-shaped case with wired lugs, Panerai Replica water-resistant to 100m and, in this case, measuring 45mm in diameter and crafted in polished stainless steel. No additional features, no decoration, no innovative materials, just a simple and functional Radiomir watch.
As for the dials, neither of the Replica watches with“sandwich dial” but standard matte black dials with painted numerals and indices – those are however lightly engraved on the dial to better hold the luminous material. Panerai has chosen a light cream colour for the indices and hands, giving a subtle vintage feel to these watches.
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 Watcheswearability.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.
Almost all adornments on the Panerai Radiomir Firenze 3 Days Replica Watches are dedicated to Firenze: the dial, the case profile, the largest movement plate, and even the straps feature the Florentine Lily, which has been present on Florence’s coat of arms for almost a thousand years – worry not, I don’t just know these kinds of things.
The 316L stainless steel Radiomir case is a hefty 47 millimeters wide and is spec’d to have 100 meters of water resistance – I’m looking at you and your measly 30 meters, Luminor Due! The engraving is performed by the same engraver all over the case and takes the master craftsman one week to complete the decoration of a single Cheap Panerai Replica.
Anyhow, the satiné soleil finished sandwich dial boasts gold-filled engravings of Radiomir Panerai at 12 and the lily as well as the word “Firenze” above the 6 o’clock position. Here, the lily is a new addition over the previous version.
So what’s actually really new, aesthetically at least, is the decorated Panerai Replica Watchescaliber – and we must say it does look rather amazing. The bridges and cocks feature a heavily decorated ring on their outer edges, while the inner segment of the movement tries to keep aesthetic balance with geometric lines and a large lily symbol in relief. Contrary to the case, the movement’s parts were engraved not by hand but by laser.
The result is an interesting contrast between the visual effects achieved by hand and by modern technology. The overall design of the movement’s decoration appears to nicely complement that of the case, with alternating brighter, brushed upper surfaces and darker, frosted recessed surfaces. It probably goes without saying that the performance of the Panerai Replica hand-wound movement remains unaffected: it still runs at 3 Hertz or 21,600 semi-oscillations per hour and offers 3 days of power reserve thanks to the combination of two mainspring barrels.
The Panerai Replica Swiss Movement appears to be a great follow-up piece for the PAM604, the engraved movement really completes this stunning and intricate look. The apparently unmodified patterns on the case still work beautifully with the classic lines of the Radiomir case, but not offering something new may come across as a missed opportunity for some – and perhaps as welcome consistency for others.
