Classic in its execution with a steel case and blue dial, it mostly marked the comeback of the Panerai Luminor Marina Replica collection, with a new direction for this emblematic model. No vintage accents, no complex movement, just a simplified and essential design focussed on functions and modern style.
Next to this blue model, there was a second watch launched, and surprisingly we’re talking about the first-ever “white sandwich” Luminor copy watch…
The elegant Due, the vintage Radiomir, the robust Submersible and the essential Luminor. Along with this segmentation, the brand has also started to clean up the collections and will continue in this path to bring more visibility and harmony inside the sub-collections.
More focused, simpler, functional, and modernly designed, what you see here is the new style for the Cheap Panerai Luminor Marina Replica. The idea is to bring a more accessible model with functionality, essential design and straightforward colours – black, blue or white.
The case of this Luminor Marina PAM01314 is everything you’d expect from a Panerai. At 44mm, it is large but this “oversized” concept is somehow part of Panerai. And with a height of 15.65mm, don’t expect this to slide under a cuff.
The Perfect Panerai Replica Watches cushion-shaped case is the modern version of this emblematic design, with sharper angles and while the centre case is brushed, the bezel is polished. On the right side is the signature Safety Lock device protecting the crown, which together with the screwed caseback guarantees a 300m water-resistance.
The overall execution of the PAM01314 is solid and clean, as you’d expect from a watch in this price range. It is here worn on a dark brown, casual-looking Scamosciato leather strap with white stitchings, closed by a brushed pin buckle.
The most noticeable aspect of this edition of the High Quality Panerai Luminor Marina 44mm Replica is its dial. At first, you’d think it looks pretty familiar but, in fact, this is the first white sandwich dial ever done by Panerai.
The display remains, however, classic with central hours and minutes – with polished baton hands – and a small seconds positioned at 9 o’clock. While I certainly understand its use here, the integration itself could have been refined.
It’s a bit too rough, not enough “integrated” within the rest of the dial. However, the Exact Panerai Replica use of a white dial is rather pleasing and adds a new dimension to the classic dark look of Panerai watches. It’s lighter, fresher and less instrumental.
