The Submersible has only been available in 42mm and 47mm case sizes, and this year, Panerai will fill that case-sized hole in the middle with seven new 44mm Panerai Submersible Replica references called QuarantaQuattro.The new references come in a variety of case materials, bezel, dial and strap colors, and are meant to round out the existing Submersible lineup with some overlap in configurations.
Stainless Steel and Carbotech
With an all-stainless-steel case and caseback, polished steel hour and minute hands and hour indexes on a matte black dial with blue accents, the Submersible QuarantaQuattro Replica Watches China slots right in between the PAM00973 (42mm) and PAM01305 (47mm) in the current collection. All three references use a fetching blue running seconds hand. The PAM01229 has a choice of two straps, in either black rubber or dark gray fabric with the rubber composed of 30 percent recycled materials and the fabric strap at a higher 68 percent. All other straps used in the QuarantaQuattro collection have similar material compositions.
The Cheap Panerai Submersible QuarantaQuattro Replica comes in a full stainless steel case and caseback as well, but with all three hands and hour indexes in matte black on a matte white dial. The running seconds subdial has white oval markers at the quarters and round black dots at the remaining five-second intervals. The PAM01226 will be an addition to the existing 42mm PAM01223 with a new military green rubber strap, giving it a fresh alpine-inspired aesthetic. There is currently no white dial Submersible in 47mm.
Carbotech plates are made from thin sheets of long carbon fibers compressed at high pressure and under controlled temperature with a binding agent called Polyether Ether Ketone. The resulting material is lighter than both ceramic and titanium, and yet resistant to corrosion, shocks and scratches. The Panerai Replica cutting of the Carbotech plates creates a unique variegated pattern that resembles the grain of wood, and no two cases are the same.
White dial accents, including a contrasting white running seconds hand, improve legibility of the dial, with the Carbotech label replacing the “Automatic” designation. To complete the deep ocean theme, the Replica Panerai Submersible PAM01232 comes with a recycled rubber strap in the exact same shade of blue as the dial. Despite the somber color palette, the PAM01232 makes for a slightly more colorful addition to the current five Carbotech Submersibles that have either black or gray dials.
Each color option is expressed by having a matching dial, bezel, crown knurling and two straps in the same hue. The dials are glossy with a gradient effect that transitions from light to dark, from top to bottom, like the fading of sunlight if you plunged from ocean surface to floor. The Panerai Replica Watches Swiss Made bezels themselves are made of eSteel with a highly polished colored ceramic insert, and definitely an interesting choice on a tool watch with muted colors such as the Submersible.
For the dial and bezel, and a faded tone of the color for the strap that recalls the fade on well-worn military jackets. The polished steel hands and white dial furniture help break up the moody palette on all three versions. The straps are made from either recycled rubber or recycled PET plastic woven into fabric.
The colors for this marine-inspired release are a more vibrant blue, white and red, unlike the sober black and gray of the original 2020 release. We start with an all-stainless-steel case with a brushed sunray, deep-blue dial and a crown with rubberized knurling in the same shade of blue. The Luxury Panerai Replica Watch hour and minute hands are polished steel with the running seconds hand in red to represent the colors of the Luna Rossa team. White Super-LumiNova in the hands and applied hour indexes gives legibility in the dark and the team name is also represented on the dial in white.
The P.900 beats at 28,800vph and can still boast of a three-day power reserve from a single barrel. Another highlight, although literally small in size, worth mentioning is the redesigned date window for the Swiss Panerai Submersible Replica. The date window used to be a simple rectangular cutout on the dial that didn’t seem to do much for the date, but it served its purpose. Panerai have now introduced a border to frame the window that is curved at the four corners and concave in profile. A minor design update that is more likely to draw the eye toward the date.
