Panerai Introduces the Submersible EcoPangaea Tourbillon GMT PAM01108

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.

Panerai Submersible Marina Militare Carbotech – 47MM

The Replica Submersible Marina Militare Carbotech is at the technical vanguard of Panerai’s re-branded Submersible collection. We found this rugged timepiece, engineered for combat diving, makes a sharp statement on dry land as well.

Released as one of the flagships of the revamped Submersible collection, which are distinguished on their dials by the use of “Replica Panerai Submersible” at 12 o’clock rather than the previous “Luminor Submersible Panerai,” is the latest model with its bezel, case middle, lugs and even the patented crown-protecting bridge made of Carbotech, a material that Panerai introduced to the watch world in 2015.

The bezel’s design is one of the most defining elements that separate it from other dive watches. The Panerai Replica studded relief dots that rise from its slightly curved surface are punctuated by a luminous-filled dot at 12 o’clock, tiny numbered dots at the 15-, 30- and 45-minute markers, and blank dots at the other 5-minute points.

It’s held in place securely by that patented protection device, also made of Carbotech, whose hinged locking mechanism extracts easily but firmly from its locked position to allow winding of the watch. After the Copy Panerai watch is wound, simply push the lever back into place to firmly anchor the crown and thus secure the Submersible’s water resistance of 300 meters.

Panerai Submersible Verde Militare 42mm Green-Dial Super Copy Watch

Copy Panerai has had a handful of green-dial models released this year, though this is the first Submersible done in this colorway.

The Submersible is a pretty niche product, by design, and a lot of Paneristi will never be pleased with the downsized Panerai Submersible Replica Watches. That said, there are probably as many, or more, Panerai enthusiasts who are thrilled to have more Submersibles that they can actually, you know, wear.

Speaking of green, yes, it’s very trendy right now.It looks so good, and the tone of green is spot on. Legibility is great, as is to be expected. And, as with other Panerai, the date window actually matches the dial.

Water resistant to 300M, the Copy Watches China has an enclosed steel caseback and sports that signature Panerai crown guard. The case is done in brushed steel throughout, as well as on the unidirectional rotating bezel. The 42mm-wide case is 14.37mm-thick and has a lug-to-lug measurement that’s just a tiny bit more than 50mm.

The Copy Watches matching green rubber strap is comfortable and looks good, though it does veer on being a little matchy-matchy.Panerai also includes a black, water resistant fabric strap with the Verde Militare. Still, I’d probably buy myself a black rubber strap, as well, as it would make the piece a lot more versatile.
