Panerai Replica made its first prototype dive watches for Italian military divers in 1936. The watches, which became known as Radiomirs, went into production two years later. In the mid-1950s, Panerai introduced a new version with a curved, crown protection bridge. It became known as the Luminor Replica Watches China.
Panerai replaced the Copy watch’s Rolex hand-wound movement, which had no seconds hand and a 36-hour power reserve, with an Angelus caliber that had a small-seconds display and an eight-day power reserve.
Although our test watch has a power reserve of three days, we feel that it’s more than sufficient for a hand-wound watch.
The diver who accompanied us on our dive, Jens Höner, is a trained frogman and mine clearance diver who has set depth records both with Replica Watches and without equipment, including a scuba dive to a depth of 240 meters.
