This is an entirely newPanerai Replica Watches reference that borrows the minimalist dial architecture of the PAM 1389 dive watch and marries it to the titanium case and movement of the 47mm PAM 615 Flyback Chronograph, while mixing in two brand new elements: a matte blue ceramic bezel, and a mottled “shark grey” dial. The case’s reverse is etched with a silhouette of a diver, a small school of fish, along with Nery’s signature and personal best of 126 meters.
The only real oddity with the watch itself is the movement, which doesn’t seem to have any real benefit to a freediver – or a regular diver for that matter, despite being water resistant to 300 meters. Just like the Panerai Luminor Submersible Replica PAM 615, this new reference uses Panerai’s in-house developed cal. P.9100, which is a column-wheel flyback chronograph movement with three days of power reserve.
Perhaps the flyback’s signature quick reset could be an advantage when performed immediately before descending, enabling the diver to easily calculate dive times, ascent times, and then surface recovery intervals, but all of this would need to be done with a Replica Watches Chinawhose pushers could be activated underwater. Plus, the pushers have screw-down collars, which suggests that full water-tightness is likely only achieved when screwed down.
Panerai is putting its fancy Carbotech material to work in two new watches. Carbotech is a special composite developed by Panerai that is lighter than titanium and stronger than stainless steel. This makes it an excellent material for Panerai large replica watches.
The PAM 979 is the regular production version, while the PAM 961 is the limited edition version. The differences are subtle. The Panerai Submersible Marina Militare Carbotech PAM 979 Copy Watch has white markers and a black rubber strap, while the PAM 961 has green accents and a green rubber strap.
These two new Submersible Marina Militaire Carbotech 47mm watches are clearly based on the Luminor Submersible 1950 Carbotech from four years ago. The basic ingredients are the same: Panerai Replica 47mm wide Carbotech case, 300 meters water resistance, small seconds at 9 o’clock, large markers, and self-winding movement.
The dials of these new Submersibles are carbon. Also, gone is the faux vintage lume seen in the earlier model and in its place is solid color lume. These two changes have a profound effect on the way the watch looks and feels.
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.
