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.
Panerai redesigned the handset and running seconds counter at 9:00, then stripped away the primary text on the dial, leaving only the deep, luminous cutouts to stand in stark relief. The Panerai Submersible Replica Watches China wordmark and depth rating have been printed on the underside of the crystal, which, love it or hate it, is a pretty neat detail when viewed at an angle.
The diving scale on the Submersible bezel is also fully engraved now with brushed surfaces and blasted texture within, hearkening the earliest watch Panerai created for Horn: the Panerai Replica Watches PAM186 Luminor Submersible Arktos GMT, with its raised compass relief.
Despite its broad 47mm dimensions, PAM961 felt the most wearable of the three, thanks in part to its super-matte aesthetic and feathery-light presence on the wrist. It deploys the new Submersible handset found on the Mike Horn, but utilizes a brand new luminous applicant for Panerai Copy Watches: three-dimensional Super-LumiNova blocks, cut into the circular and hyphen-shaped hour markers that characterize a Submersible dial.
But physically speaking, the new reference utilizes the same 47mm titanium Panerai Replica Submersible case, the same ceramic rotating bezel, and the same P.9100 flyback chronograph movement with the same dial layout.This version gets a matte black DLC coating, a textured blue degradé dial, and seafoam green colored accents and hands — a color scheme said to be inspired by the ocean around French Polynesia, where Néry now calls home much of the year.
