Panerai contributed greatly to improving nighttime legibility by developing its own light-emitting luminous substance for the Panerai Radiomir Replica and later replacing it in the Luminor with a similarly bright but less strongly radioactive material. The sandwich-style dial was equally important to increased legibility.
The dial consists of a lower disk bearing the luminous substance and an upper disk from which the indexes and numerals have been cut out. This enables Panerai Replica to use more luminous material than would be possible if the numerals were simply printed or painted onto the dial.
The Best Panerai Replica sandwich-style dial is also the reason for the distinctive open shape of the numeral “6”: its inner part must be connected to its outer part. To make a virtue of this necessity, and to create a handsome dial despite functional restrictions.
It’s surprising but true that Panerai’s leather straps are as suitable as ever for immersion in water because the leather is nearly untreated. When the diver returns to terra firma, it takes a while for the strap to dry fully, but afterward it looks exactly as it did before its submersion.
The movement’s decorations match theCheap Panerai Luminor Replicacharacter. The most eye-catching embellishment is a rather technical-looking striped pattern, which runs in precisely the same direction along all three bridges. This goes well with the unconventional blue engravings.
Panerai Replica all three new watches use a 44-mm traditional Luminor case, thick on the wrist at 15.65 mm and featuring the series’ distinctive, patented crown guard. The cases available are one in sandblasted titanium, one in Carbotech, and one in the new Fibratech material, which is constructed from “natural and sustainable eco-fibers” and uses basalt rock as its base material.
The titanium Panerai PAM01117 Replica opts for a blue sunray dial, while the two other references use a gray sunburst style; all the dial feature the brand’s distinctive sandwich construction, with Arabic numerals at three of the quarter hours broken up by tick markers and a 3 o’clock date window. Toward the 9 o’clock position is a subtle seconds counter, while passing over the dial are two long, sword-style hands.
Highlighting all three designs is the new array of luminous accents — with the crown guard and crown proper both featuring the glow-in-the-dark material, as well as the dial and its outer surrounding ring. Each of the models also features the unconventional detail of luminous threading on their blue-and-black Panerai Sportech straps.
Each of the new Panerai Replica Watch is powered by the automatic, in-house P.9010 Calibre, capable of a 72-hour power reserve. The movement is protected by a solid caseback engraved with the words “70 Years Warranty,” which both honors the 70-year anniversary, and guarantees the working order of the watches for a quite literal, and impressive, seventy years. All of the models boast a 300-meter water resistance.
Another new material ushered into the world of high horology by Officine Panerai Replica, the Florentine maestros of rugged, sporty luxury.
Used in the aerospace industry, Fibratech has a homogenous matte gray appearance that differs slightly in each finished piece depending on the cut of the material. That means that each 44-mm barrel-shaped case of this new timepiece is subtly unique from all others. Fibratech makes up the Panerai Replica Watch case middle, including the patented crown protecting bridge, while Carbotech is used for the crown itself, the crown-locking lever, and the bezel.
The Replica Luminor Marina Fibratech – 44MM, one of a handful of special editions released this year in commemoration of the Luminor model’s 70th anniversary, features all of the familiar aesthetic hallmarks — the aforementioned crown guard device that sets the Luminor series apart from its predecessor, the Radiomir; the “sandwich” style dial, here in an ultra-modern blue-to-black gradation; the stencil-type hour numerals with green-glowing white Super-LumiNova; and the 9 o’clock small seconds subdial balanced out by the 3 o’clock date window. Covering the dial is a robust sapphire crystal made from corundum.
The Panerai Luminor Marina Fibratech Replicacomes on a blue strap made of Panerai Sportech, a proprietary woven material with a waterproof, rubberized texture, and fastens to the wrist with a trapezoidal titanium buckle with DLC coating.
