At SIHH 2017, Panerai cheap fake watches UK surprised us with the reveal of five watches in honor of its new partnership with the 35th America’s Cup.
Most brands celebrate or commemorate a partnership like this with one watch, but Panerai presented an incredible number of five watches: one is in honor of one the 35th America’s Cup, which is, by the way, the oldest sporting trophy in the world.
Three are official watches of Oracle Team USA, and one is the official watch of SoftBank Team Japan; both of these teams are also sponsored by Panerai. Oracle Team USA, as the “defender” – meaning the winner of the last America’s Cup – is also the team that puts on this race, which is why the official watch/timing partner is so closely linked to the team.
The Luminor Marina 1950 America’s Cup 3 Days Automatic Acciaio 44 mm (PAM00727) is the official watch of the 35th America’s Cup.
The Luminor 1950 Oracle Team USA 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Ceramica 44 mm (PAM00725) is the official watch of Oracle Team USA.
The Luminor 1950 Regatta Oracle Team USA 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Titanio 47 mm (PAM00726) is another official watch of Oracle Team USA.
The replica Luminor Marina Oracle Team USA 8 Days Acciaio 44 mm (PAM00724) watches are third official watch of Oracle Team USA.The Luminor Marina 1950 SoftBank Team Japan 3 Days Automatic Acciaio 44 mm (PAM00732) is the official watch of SoftBank Team Japan.
The America’s Cup has to be the most exciting and challenging nautical event. This year it celebrates its 35th anniversary and does so with Panerai. This year’s event also means the introduction of the new America’s Cup Class foiling catamarans, which will reach speeds over 90 km/h, making this the Formula 1 of the seas. Only the world’s best sailors participate, and for this, they need a rugged watch to withstand this highly demanding and competitive environment.
The Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days Automatic certainly fits the bill. For this special occasion, Panerai fitted the 300 pieces limited edition of this model with a red seconds hand, as well as a strap with blue and red stitching, the official colors of the America’s Cup. The watch is still powered by Panerai’s manufacture caliber P9000, but this is now hiding behind a solid steel caseback engraved with the logo of the famous cup.
Next, to being the official partner of the America’s Cup does Panerai also sponsor two contestants. The first is ORACLE TEAM USA, the two-time winners of the cup, for which Panerai made three limited editions. The first is based on the Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic in black ceramic, now adorned in official America’s Cup colors and with a special engraving of the ORACLE TEAM USA boat on the back. Most interesting is that Panerai also equipped the watch with a nautical Tachymeter scale, allowing you to measure your speed on the water.
The next watch Panerai replica watches UK made for ORACLE TEAM USA features a very nautical complication, that of the regatta timer. This allows team members to keep track of the countdown to the start of the race, which is crucial because they pass the starting line at speed, but can only do so without being penalized after the start signal has been given. Time is therefore of the essence, making the Luminor 1950 Regatta 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic a great companion for the race, especially when crafted from titanium, as Panerai did for this limited edition.
Last of the limited editions for ORACLE TEAM USA Panerai watches are the Luminor Marina ORACLE TEAM USA 8 Days in steel, which also features color details referring to the cup colors, as well as an engraved case back. Just as the other two watches, it also has a strap with the Cup’s logo in it, as well as matching stitching.
Panerai also sponsors the SoftBank Team Japan. A memorable occasion, because Japan is competing once again in the America’s Cup for the first time in 15 years. This team’s watch is the same as the official watch of the America’s Cup, yet with a strap in different colors and an engraving of the competing boat on the case back. With these limited editions, Panerai sets the stage of what is most likely going to be a very exciting edition of the America’s Cup.
This week at Watches & Wonders, Panerai replica watches have announced a considerable update to their Radiomir 1940 line-up. Alongside new 42 mm models featuring 3 Day movements, the brand has also launched the brand new Panerai 1940 10 Days GMT Automatic Oro Rosso. Featuring a sort of greatest hits of Panerai styling, this new 1940 offers the classy appeal of a Radiomir mixed with the confident presence of the Luminor and a healthy injection of useful complications.
With a 45 mm red gold case and your choice of either a brown (PAM624) or black (PAM625) “sun brushed” dial, the 1940 10 Days GMT looks stunning. The 1940 case is really a mix of the Radiomir and Luminor cases and it offers a masculine, but classic, appeal that works well even in larger proportions and various case metals.
As lovely as new Panerai GMT fake watches may look, the real magic is in the movement. The P.2003/10 calibre ticks at 4Hz, uses 25 jewels and thanks to three barrels, can offer a power reserve of 10 days (240 hours). The movement, which is essentially a fully skeletonized version of Panerai’s P.2003, can be viewed via the display case back. Indeed, while the P.2003 has been seen in similar pieces like the 44 mm Luminor 1950 10 Days GMT Automatic, the additional effort of skeletonization seems fitting for a somewhat more dressy piece like this Radiomir.
This feature-packed movement offers not only time, date, a second timezone, a 24 hour indication, linear power reserve and date display, but also manages a rather elegant interface. In the format of a true GMT, the local hour hand can be jump set independently, forward and backward, from the standard timekeeping and the date will also update to reflect the progression or regression of local time.
Additionally, the seconds display is automatically set to 0 when hacking the movement, allowing for a simple method of syncing the watch with an accurate reference time.
As with other Panerai GMT models, the GMT hand can be neatly tucked behind the local hours hand for a simplified look when the feature is not needed. Despite its rather complex nature, Panerai manages to integrate all of these complications into a legible and compelling package.
Love them or hate them, one thing that you cannot do with Panerai is ignore them. Panerai has once again made waves at Watches & Wonders 2015 with their latest special edition watches. I’m of course referring to the new Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Titanio DLC PAM629 “California dial” replica watches, and also its twisted sister, the PAM617.
But we thought that it would be useful to expand on these watches now that we have had some hands-on time and also a couple of days to ruminate on them. Today, we shall begin with what is probably the more controversial of the two, the Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Titanio DLC PAM629.
The PAM629 uses Panerai’s tried and tested Luminor 1950 case which is 47mm wide. This makes the Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Titanio DLC PAM629 a large watch. While it may large, the lugs do curve quite pronouncedly, so it’s not uncomfortable to wear even if you have smaller wrists. And because it is rendered in titanium, the Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Titanio DLC PAM629 also feels remarkably light. The sheer weight of this watch messes with your mind.
You are expecting a hefty piece, and yet when you pick it up and put it on, it feels like a much smaller watch. The DLC coating helps make the case more resistant to scratches and wear, and it is a first for Panerai in the sense that their DLC pieces have traditionally used steel cases.
Moving on, what’s really controversial about the Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Titanio DLC PAM629 is its dial. Yes, it has what is known as a California dial. This dial design, which consists of half Roman numerals and half Arabic numerals, is special to Panerai because it was used on the Panerai reference 3646, one of the very first Rolex-made Panerais. It is a very unique design to be sure, and up until the Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Titanio DLC PAM629, the California dial has only appeared on Panerai’s cushion case Radiomir watches. And it is for this reason that Panerai traditionalists are crying foul.
But these curmudgeons aside, the neutrals will once again point towards Panerai’s relunctance to adapt and conjure up something that is truly new. The new Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Titanio DLC PAM629 is surely iterative rather than revolutionary, but that’s what Panerai does best. Besides, I thought last year’s Radiomir 1940 chronographs were pretty refreshing. I digress… so back to the PAM627. Well, the fact that it is the first Luminor watch to wear a California dial should surely mean something in the annals of Panerai’s history and will thusly ensure this model’s success. Furthermore, the Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Titanio DLC PAM629 is limited to just 300 pieces and its intended target audience will certainly not mind that the PAM629 is not historically correct.
In fact, the Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Titanio DLC PAM629 is dripping with cool. The dark, black case coupled with the equally black dial contrasts perfectly with the faux vintage markings and gold hands. The case is rendered in typical Panerai quality, which is to say it’s really good. The lines are sharp and the uniform matte finish seems to almost suck up light, which makes the gold hands stand out even more sharply. The supplied Ponte Vecchio calf strap also screams quality, though I suspect some users would be miffed that it tapers down to just 22mm. I personally prefer a uniform 26mm strap on my 47mm Luminor 1950 copy watches.
In the span of just two decades, Panerai has risen to become one of the most popular watch brands in the world and also a bona fide manufacture. Today, we are going to take a look at one of their more unconventional watches, the Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Acciaio watch. The Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Acciaio replica watches, also known more simply as the PAM 524, is a great choice for lovers of Panerai’s iconic Luminor case that want something a little more special to stand out. As its name clearly states, the PAM 524 is a chronograph with a flyback complication, and I love how Panerai has integrated these functions into the watch.
For readers not familiar with a flyback function, it lets the wearer reset and start the chronograph mechanism without first stopping and then reseting and then starting it again. Pushing the flyback button is enough to reset the chronograph to zero and after which the chronograph seconds hand will immediately resume timing without any interruption. This is especially useful for timing quick continuous events like lap times.
First things first, the case is based on Panerai’s very popular 44mm 1950 Luminor case. Thanks to its bold cushion shape design and its instantly recognizable crown-protecting device, the Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Acciaio PAM 524 is big, chunky, brash, and has tremendous wrist presence. If you’re looking for a discreet timepiece, best look elsewhere.
Despite its chunkiness, the PAM 524 actually wears quite well on the wrist, thanks to the long, curved lugs and comfortable strap. That said, it’s a bit top-heavy, and the thickness is something that owners will need to get used to, otherwise they will be banging the watch into all sorts of things. The case is also well constructed with sharp lines and different finishing on the surfaces. The bezel is mirror-polished, while other parts of the case are brushed.
The first thing that strikes you is the bright blue chronograph seconds hand Panerai replica watches. It also lets other Paneristis know immediately that your Panerai is a little special. And unlike other Panerai watches, the Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Acciaio PAM 524 has markers for the individual minutes, which is necessary for the chronograph function. The individual minute markers, as well as the larger hour markers, and hours, minutes and running seconds hands are all rendered in matching ecru, which gives the dial a warm and vintage look and feel. Even the date is printed in the same ecru color, which is a nice and thoughtful touch.
We are just two months ahead of the luxury Panerai replica watches fair SIHH 2017, so it was about time for a head-turner pre-event teaser, which in this case is the – you guessed it, vintage-inspired – Panerai Radiomir 3 Days Acciaio Brevettato PAM685 and PAM687 watches. Some cool details here, so let’s take a look, before we go hands-on with it in 8 weeks time.
As far as dive watch lore is concerned, Panerai has been there since the beginning of man’s mid-century race to the bottom of the sea, and has a number of extremely rare vintage editions provided to the Royal Italian Navy to prove it. One such example was the original Radiomir, whose unique, 12-sided bezel was proudly engraved with the proclamation of its patented (“Brevettato”) design – you know, just in case navy divers wanted to copy it, or something. Since Panerai surfaced as a commercially available brand, it has been dipping into its archives to recreate this super cool blend of military-grade ruggedness and sleek Italian design, and the Panerai Radiomir 3 Days Acciaio Brevettato PAM685/PAM687 fake watches fit into that larger picture beautifully.
While most watch brands are content to drop in a date aperture, increase the case size by a few millimeters, and finish things off with a generous dose of beige Super-LumiNova, Panerai is trying to preserve the exact dimensions and aged character of the original with this new Panerai Radiomir 3 Days Acciaio Brevettato… they do go so far as to offer the watch in two dial variants: the PAM685, as seen above, comes with a standard black dial and the aforementioned beige luminous cutouts…
…While the PAM687 takes the faux-patina adoption to new heights with a brown “tropical” dial designed to mimic the discoloration that occurs over time on lacquered dials (enamel, by contrast, will never fade, but these having been military spec watches, there of course was no demand for fancy enameled dials). It’s the first time Panerai has ever introduced an offering quite like this, so love it or hate it, the significance is still certainly notable.
The rest of the watch mirrors other aspects of the original Radiomir, including the swarthy 47mm case diameter Panerai copy watches, Plexiglass crystal, wire lugs, time-only indication without even running seconds, and of course, an oversized onion crown – a necessity carried over from military watches of the era that had to be wound while wearing gloves. Unlike the originals, though, Panerai is including a spare crystal in the package – Plexiglass does scratch considerably more easily than sapphire – for those who prefer their watch to not accumulate the same levels of character that the vintage editions might now be found in.
For 2016, there’s an emphasis from Panerai on growing its popular Radiomir 1940 collection replica watches. There are 4 new GMT models and, as is expected with Panerai, they all retain the classic and bold look from the brand. The 1940 line is essentially a hybrid combination of the Radiomir and Luminor watches, and is popular amongst Paneristi for this reason. New this year are four models featuring the GMT complication. These would also be the first Radiomir 1940 models to feature the GMT complication that aren’t Special Edition pieces – Panerai-speak for limited edition watches. Let’s take a look at the Panerai Radiomir 1940 3 Days GMT Automatic Acciaio and the Panerai Radiomir 1940 3 Days GMT Power Reserve Automatic Acciaio watches.
To break things down, there are two distinct versions and each will be available with two different types of dial. The two models in question are the aforementioned Panerai Radiomir 1940 3 Days GMT Automatic Acciaio and the Panerai Radiomir 1940 3 Days GMT Power Reserve Automatic Acciaio fake watches (by the way, acciaio is just Italian for “steel”). Essentially, the difference between the two is that one has a power reserve display on the dial while the other doesn’t. Price difference between the power reserve and non-power reserve models is only $200 so it’s really about the aesthetics for most buyers. Either way, it’s hard to really go wrong.
All four models will feature 45mm steel Radiomir 1940 style cases Panerai replica watches. Each model also comes in two dial variants, one with what Panerai calls “Paris hobnails” and the other with vertical stripes in relief. The two Panerai Radiomir 1940 3 Days GMT Automatic Acciaio models are the PAM 627 (with Paris hobnail) and the PAM 657 (with vertical stripes). While the other two Panerai Radiomir 1940 3 Days GMT Power Reserve Automatic Acciaio models are the PAM 628 (with Paris hobnail) and the PAM 658 (with vertical stripes). Personally, I think both add a textural pop to the dial that is brilliant in its simplicity and effective in its execution. Really one of my favorite visual touches from the brand.
Panerai cheap replica watches can often get some flack for producing watches that are a bit too similar looking through their model lines, which can often make it hard for a “non-Paneristi” to actually distinguish between many of them. This year at SIHH, Panerai debuted four new Radiomir 1940 GMT watches, but they also released another Radiomir 1940 watch that is actually a “first” for the brand.The first white dial Radiomir 1940 watch. It’s a great-looking piece that will have appeal to the Paneristi who wants something a little different in their collection, fans of white-dial watches, or people who just appreciate great design.
Personally, I find the size of 42mm watchcase Panaerai fake watches to be a sweet spot, and I’m really glad Panerai chose to bring the white dial to a watch as broadly appealing and wearable as this Radiomir 1940 3 Days Automatic Acciaio. I also appreciate that it’s just under 11mm high on the wrist, giving it presence without being blocky.
The familiar cushion-shaped case is complete with off-center small seconds dial at 9 o’clock and numeric indicators for the hours. Something I really love about some of their white-dialed watches is Panerai’s decision to use dots and numerical indicators for the 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, and 10 o’clock positions. Scanning the circumference of the dial almost makes it look like the 12, 3, and 6 o’clock indicators are popping out as if viewing from a magnifying glass. Fortunately, legibility on the dial is not affected by using the white dial and it’s easy to read.
Through the sapphire case back you’ll get a view of the in-house P.4000 movement, which operates at 28,800 vph (4 Hz). As the name suggests, the Panerai Radiomir 1940 3 Days Automatic Acciaio has a three-day power reserve, which will be the minimum power reserve on all forthcoming in-house movements by Panerai. As David noted when the watch was announced, this is a great minimum power reserve because you can leave your watch off for a weekend and come back with it still ticking. It’s an actual practical benefit to have this, so it would be sagacious for other brands to follow suit.
One reason why fans of Panerai high quality radiomir 1940 replica watches get hooked on the brand is due to the distinctive and unmistakable styling that’s shared by the Luminor and Radiomir lines, as well as the Luminor 1950 and Radiomir 1940 lines. The dark dial is definitely a part of the “Panerai look” and, as I mentioned before, I find it unlikely that someone will get this as their first Panerai. Rather, it’ll probably add to a collection. Then again, it could draw in buyers who were on the fence but prefer the white dial a lot more. This is when you know the design is successful; it’s familiar, yet unique to the brand’s aesthetic, but still has a wide appeal to the larger watch buying community.
First of all, a Happy Chinese New Year to all our readers! Panerai limited edition replica watches enjoys a strong following in Asia and for the past seven years have released special edition watches to commemorate the Chinese Zodiac. The Chinese Zodiac is made up of 12 animals, corresponding to a 12-year cycle. Chinese New Year began yesterday on February 8, 2016, and it marks the start of the Year of the Monkey. So, in keeping with tradition, Panerai has released the new Panerai Luminor 1950 Sealand 3 Days Automatic Acciaio (PAM 850) which pays tribute to this new year and this special animal.
According to Chinese tradition, the Monkey symbolizes intelligence, optimism, and confidence, and the first thing that will strike readers about the new Panerai Luminor 1950 Sealand 3 Days Automatic fake watch is the instantly recognizable hunter-style case which is used on many Panerai Sealand watches. On this watch, the flip cover has been elaborately decorated with an exquisite engraving of the Monkey.
Each cover is entirely hand-engraved by skilled Italian craftsmen, who have to lay numerous thin threads of gold in the engraved steel to embellish the image of the monkey and the accompanying flora. You can imagine how laborious this task is. The flip cover opens upwards with the hinge at 12 o’clock, and opening it reveals a sapphire crystal and a grey dial that is unlike what you see on most other Panerai watches. We don’t have an exact image of the dial, but the above image from the PAM849 matches the same description. There’s a running seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock and a date window at 3 o’clock. The rest of the case is a 44mm Luminor 1950 case made out of stainless steel and water-resistant to 100 meters.
Inside the Panerai Luminor 1950 Sealand 3 Days Automatic Acciaio beats Panerai’s P.9000 calibre, an automatic movement that is widely used in many other automatic Panerai watches. It features bi-directional winding rotor, operating 28,800bph, and a power reserve of 3 days.
Panerai has just announced the release of their most highly complicated diving Panerai replica watches UK featuring two of their brand new minute repeaters (to chime in two time zones, naturally) and a price tag starting at $400,000 and going up with customizations.
Panerai wants to pay tribute to their naval history and this piece is an homage to the significance of bell-tones aboard a vessel out at sea. The Panerai Radiomir 1940 Minute Repeater Carillon Tourbillon GMT copy watches also has the distinction of being the first-ever watch with two minute repeaters, and also features a tourbillon and a brand new new movement. They must also be keenly aware that it is a future-grail piece for Paneristis and collectors, and as a result they’re offering something unusual in haute horlogerie: flexibility. The watch is made to order and buyers will be able to customize things not only like the strap but hands and even the material the case is made of.
Breaking the mold by incorporating two minute repeaters for local time and a second time zone, the Panerai Radiomir 1940 Minute Repeater Carillon Tourbillon GMT employs three hammers to achieve a melody. Initiated via a push-piece at 8 o’clock, the repeater here packs three hammers rather than the traditional two, to allow a combination of tones with the lowest timbre indicating the hour while the highest and latter tones indicate the minutes. In traditional repeaters a triple chime usually indicates a fifteen minute passage but the Carillon utilizes a decimal repeater which chimes 10 minute increments. So, for example a traditional minute repeater would chime 10:28 as ten chimes for the hour, followed by one chime for 15 minutes, followed by 13 chimes for individual minutes. Here, 10:28 is 10 chimes for the hour, two triple chimes, and 8 individual chimes. Note that they decided to use “triple chimes” for the second chime indicating 10-minute sets.
Hilariously, Panerai cheap fake watches say this use of a decimal repeater “corresponds to customary ways in which time is now indicated by digital watches.” That’s right, Panerai just cited digital watches as, at least partly, being behind behind their logic in the making of a minute repeater watch.
