The new-for-2023 Panerai Radiomir California PAM01349 Replica watch with its ex-works scratched-up Brunito eSteel™ case is something that would very much belong in that imaginary utopian world of Panerai.Panerai steered away from its history-inspired core in an effort to cater to an ever greater audience, there would be no shame in producing just a few references with iconic status and immediate recognizability.
The Panerai Radiomir California PAM01349 Replica Watches Online, a striking-looking watch with a powerful dial that has its own fascinating history.The history of this dial, where the upper half features Roman and the lower half Arabic numerals, is intertwined with the history of not just Panerai but also the world, making it all the more special for those willing to do some research.
The PAM01349 is a bit of a beast, as befits a Radiomir, even if this is the first time a California dial is available in not a 47mm but “only” 45mm guise. Still, at 45mm-wide, not even the skinny lugs can take away from the bulk of this expansive cushion case. The Cheap Panerai Replica corners reach wide before they are pinched together, and yet the proportions are bang on, so long as you manage to exclude a narrow wrist from the equation.
After modulating the watch in hand for a while, an angle that supports closer inspection of the dial can be found. This reveals metallic blue hands that range from bright blue to almost purple depending on the angle and lighting conditions. The base of the dial is dark green with a vignette effect painting the periphery dark and unsaturated.
“eSteel™ is a next-generation metal obtained from pre-consumer recycled steel scraps (up to 95%) coming from different industries. This metal is PVD coated and then given a “burnished” finish where polishing and Panerai Replica Watches black coating processes are followed by a tumble-polish to create this aged aesthetic.
The Panerai Radiomir California Dial PAM01349 comes with a calf leather raw-cut strap with three seams of contrast stitching. Exclusive to just the PAM01349 is a hot-printed “G. Panerai e Figlio” inscription, the exact same phrase found on the signage of the original Panerai workshop in Florence.This is to say that a brutish green leather strap would probably be a better match, or perhaps one without the signature.
The Best Panerai Super Clone is powered by the P.5000 caliber, a hand-wound movement with 8 days of power reserve — an impressive feat, although it is achieved in part through a lowered operating frequency that is 3 instead of 4Hz. The caseback is etched with the Panerai and Radiomir phrases in vintage-cool typography, a great match to the Radiomir that dates back almost 90 years. Water resistance is 100 meters, which is as it should be.
Given the utility of an eight-day power reserve, 100-meter water resistance, great legibility, and timeless style, this could be a very serious contender if priced lower. Still, Panerai seems confident in its product.
