This new model is available in two subtly different references: an unlimited run with green Super-LumiNova (PAM00984), or a 19-piece limited run with blue Super-LumiNova (PAM00985). Made for the Panerai Replica Watches explorer and brand ambassador Mike Horn, both feature an in-house movement with a decent 72-hour power reserve, and enough design tweaks to keep things interesting.
Its 47mm case diameter is perfectly on brand; its highly legible, superbly executed sandwich dial is one of the best in the business; the Panerai Replica story behind the model and the pains taken to implement eco-strategies into the manufacturing process is inspired; and the redesign of the unidirectional bezel appeals to my anti-chromatic tastes.
As for those exceptions: screen printing on the underside of the sapphire crystal is a personal pet peeve because it messes with my focus when I glance at the dial. I’m also not a huge fan of the style of the main strap, although do respect Panerai Replica Watches China for trying something new with an eco-friendly material. The spare rubber strap would be the one for me, though.
Crucially, both iterations of the Cheap Copy WatchesPanerai Submerisble Mike Horn edition have character. It’s clearly Panerai, but it’s also clearly different. I much prefer the PAM00985 with the blue lume, because I feel it has a more modern look, which, in my opinion, suits the case dimensions much better.
Panerai Luna Rossa Challenger Submersible PAM 1039
Frankly, given the storied history of the brand and their ties to the Italian Navy, a watch from them headed for the water should work, right? I mean, it’s got Submersible right in the name! The Panerai Replica Watches Luna Rossa Challenger Submersible PAM 1039 should hold up just fine.
It’s light, it’s tough, and it won’t corrode in salt water. Good start, right? Add in a dial that’s made up of bits of the sail on the Cheap Copy Watches Luna Rossa AC75, and you’ve got something that thematically fits right in with the boat – literally.
While large, carbon fiber does lighten things up, and makes for a unique feel on the wrist. The sail treatment on the Panerai Replica dial also lightens things up a bit – sort of how some brands will “age” a dial – while giving some interesting texture. There’s also no denying how the hands and indices pop out against the dial.
Three new Panerai Submersibles Replica Watches join the line this year: PAM 683 (black ceramic bezel), PAM 959 (gray dial and blue ceramic bezel), and PAM 960 (Carbotech case), bringing the total number of 42mm Subs to five, with the original 682 with the stainless steel bezel and 684 in rose gold being the other two.
Not only is it big and burly, but the polished elements set into the black dial and raised minute demarcations on the bezel are both complemented perfectly by a ceramic bezel. The end result is modern, masculine, and undeniably awesome. But at 47mm Panerai Replica, it’s also borderline unwearable for most.
The Replica Watches China 42mm Luminor case rectifies this. It still measures a few hairs over 50mm lug-to-lug, but it sits low against the wrist, further restrained in its perceived size due to all the brushed surfaces on the case itself. A closer examination reveals a few other subtle differences between the 683 and the 682, like the re-ordering of the dial wordmarks, which now read “Panerai, Submersible, Automatic,” along with the new addition of the water resistance indicator at 6 o’clock.
On the flip side of the color spectrum lies the new black-on-black 42mm PAM 960 Carbotech, the smaller companion to the 47mm PAM 1616Panerai Replica Watches China. Like the new 2019 Marina Militare Carbotech watches, the 960 reference also uses Panerai’s new Submersible dial, which substitutes the traditional applied silver markers and cut out hands for thick cylindrical blocks of Super-LumiNova and a brand new handset that adds two thin strips of the material around each of the cutouts for greater low-light legibility.
