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.
“What’s next?” is the question that’s been on the lips of the nation – or at least those concerned Panerai replica watches fans, who thus far had to wonder what the next frontier may be for their beloved brand. The Luminor undoubtedly is the more popular and successful among Panerai collections – arguably paling the Radiomir in comparison – and while the brand has not shied away from releasing myriads of different iterations, the time has come for them today to release Luminor’s chapter due. Enter the Panerai Luminor Due 3 Days, with the new and in fact thinnest Luminors ever, the PAM676 and PAM677 pieces. Let’s dig in and see if the due name is justified.
Due (pronounced “doo-eh”) stands for to “two” in Italian, and that quite clearly marks how Panerai Luminor series fake watch is launching the second chapter Luminor case. Wow. The name of the game is thickness – or rather the very lack of it. The Panerai Luminor Due case, in some instances, is up to 40% thinner than the comparable Luminor Uno (no, they have not started calling them that).
Panerai is quick to stress, though, that “the ingredients for the new case are the ones well known to every connoisseur: the robust cushion case, large dial surrounded by the leather strap Panerai fake watches (arguably not the most novel feature of all time), strong integrated lugs and the bridge-shaped device which seals the crown.” You need not be the most eagle-eyed of Paneristi either to see that the Luminor Due is heavily based on the Luminor 1950 case: it has what appears to be an extremely similar case and lug profile, albeit the aforementioned diet has of course taken effect.
The Panerai Luminor Due line will be debuted by four models, a steel and gold version in both 42- and 45-millimeter sizes. Let’s see them one-by-one.
Among Panerai’s sudden heap of new models today, the Panerai Luminor Marina 1950 Carbotech 3 Days Automatic PAM661 stands out for its carbon case. One good thing about Panerai and their naming conventions is that you can at least get a broad sense of a watch from its model name, especially if you are already familiar with the brand. Of course, Panerai replica watches fans know that the myriad PAM references often differ very subtly with an option here and an option there. This new release is immediately and obviously distinguished from the rest, though, by its black carbon case with a wooden grain-like pattern – oh, and there’s an updated movement and some interesting details to note as well.
Panerai cheap fake watches released their first Carbotech-cased watch last year in 2015, the Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 Carbotech 3 Days Automatic PAM616 . Now, the Submersible was a sensible choice to debut this rather novel looking material – although we never had a doubt that pieces from other collections made of this high-tech composite will be released soon.
While the aesthetic differences between the Luminor Marina and the Submersible are rather obvious (different case shape and size, lack of rotating bezel on the Marina), this new model actually shares more in common with the Submersible than just the carbon case. For starters, there’s the faux-aged lume and the round hour markers that are typically found mostly on Submersible models. Also carried over is the bright blue, but here it is only on the small-seconds hand at 9 o’clock, complementing the modern vibe established by the avant-garde use of carbon for the case.
The Panerai Luminor Marina 1950 Carbotech 3 Days Automatic replica watch case measures 44mm wide and is water-resistant to 300m, and aesthetics aside, the carbon material promises a lightweight wearing experience (to which our hands-on experience with the PAM616 testifies). Inside the Panerai Luminor Marina 1950 Carbotech 3 Days Automatic PAM661 is the “new” Panerai P.9010 automatic movement that debuted in several of today’s releases.
