As far as dive watch lore is concerned, Luxury Panerai Replica has been there since the beginning of man’s mid-century race to the bottom of the sea, and has a number of extremely rare vintage editions provided to the Royal Italian Navy to prove it. One such example was the original Radiomir, whose unique, 12-sided bezel was proudly engraved with the proclamation of its patented design – you know, just in case navy divers wanted to copy it, or something.
While most Panerai Replica Watches brands are content to drop in a date aperture, increase the case size by a few millimeters, and finish things off with a generous dose of beige Super-LumiNova, Panerai is trying to preserve the exact dimensions and aged character of the original with this new Panerai Radiomir 3 Days Acciaio Brevettato… they do go so far as to offer the watch in two dial variants: the PAM685, as seen above, comes with a standard black dial and the aforementioned beige luminous cutouts…
…While the PAM687 takes the faux-patina adoption to new heights with a brown “tropical” dial designed to mimic the discoloration that occurs over time on lacquered dials. It’s the first time Swiss Fake Panerai Watches has ever introduced an offering quite like this, so love it or hate it, the significance is still certainly notable.
The rest of the watch mirrors other aspects of the original Radiomir, including the swarthy 47mm case diameter, Plexiglass crystal, wire lugs, time-only indication without even running seconds, and of course, an oversized onion crown – a necessity carried over from military Cheap Panerai Replica of the era that had to be wound while wearing gloves. Unlike the originals, though, Panerai is including a spare crystal in the package – Plexiglass does scratch considerably more easily than sapphire – for those who prefer their watch to not accumulate the same levels of character that the vintage editions might now be found in.
While it isn’t new to these pieces, a cool detail that I personally like a lot is how the modern Radiomir is fitted with removable wire lugs to facilitate changing of the included stitched leather strap. Granted, these lugs aren’t simply welded on to the case like the original examples, but the fact that Panerai Replica Watches eschewed spring or screw bars in the name of strap-changing convenience and opted for full wire lugs is a testament to their dedication to the source material.
