Limited to just five pieces, the Panerai Replica Submersible EcoPangaea Tourbillon GMT PAM01108 is equipped with a skeletonised movement featuring a second time zone and tourbillon. More unusually, the massive, 50 mm case of the PAM 1108 is fabricated from recycled steel.
The perpendicular tourbillon
The Panerai PAM 1108 Replica is powered by the P.2005/T, a movement Panerai has used on several other skeleton-tourbillon watches. Hand-wound with a six-day power reserve, the P.2005/T incorporates a second time zone function with a central GMT hand, as well as the novel tourbillon at 10 o’clock.
Unlike conventional tourbillons that rotate on the same plane as the dial, with the balance wheel oscillating the same axis of rotation, the Copy Panerai tourbillon rotates perpendicular to the dial, like a barbecue spit, and at high speed, making one revolution every 30 seconds.
May trends already emerge, blue is holding its ground as a popular dial color, classic designs get a boost, diameters tend to get a little bit smaller, yet will exist next to their larger sized siblings. Another trend that remains strong is that for complicated watches. Many brands use these replica watches as their calling card, and to delight their most demanding and affluential clients.
Panerai Submersible Ecopangaea Tourbillon GMT 50mm Mike Horn Edition
It features a second time-zone, six-day power reserve, and a tourbillon, but these are not even its most exclusive features. The Panerai Replica case is made from the drive shaft of the Pangea, Mike Horn’s sailing ship, and each of the five owners of this exclusive limited edition will also get to join him on an arctic expedition. With a diameter of 50mm is it a very serious watch, but also a rugged one, as it is water-resistant up to 300 meters.

Unlike many other minute repeaters are the gongs tuned to C and G flat, which gives the Copy Watches a distinctly different sound. While the minute repeater plays, a small transparent disc with the words hours, quarters and minutes spins, indicate what you are hearing.
Such an incredible minute repeater deserves an exceptional case, and Replica Watches China got that covered as well. Sintered into a solid form from a powder is CCMTM, CarTech Micro-Melt BioDur, a metal that is far more resistant to wear and will remain shiny even when scratched.
Dials, have been black, blue, white or tobacco. The first, of course, is the colour found on all of the true military issue models, for the obvious reason that they were worn by sabotage teams not interested in being detected and betrayed by theirPanerai Replica watches.
The last of the four colours pays homage to those early dials which have aged in the euphemistically named manner we now call “tropical”, Copy Panerai cannily reissuing historically important models with a pre-aged look.
Once the brand’s revival was fully under way, blue was also applied to the more macho variants, such as the big Panerai Luminor GMT Replica, while the last couple of years have seen a plethora of blue-dialled models across the range.
What it does, even more so than the stark white dials is to lighten the look. Colour aside, it’s pure Panerai Replica, and a bare bones description doesn’t quite convey the transition that the new dial hue imparts to the watch.
