From the 47mm Destros and Bronzos to the monstrous 60mm Egiziano, Swiss made fake Panerai has never shied away from large diameters, nor should they, for that matter. The first watches Panerai made were modified pocket watches – the 1936 ref. 2533 measured in at 47mm. Today, however, is about the more wearable spectrum of Panerai’s catalogue. The 40mm cheap replica Panerai Luminor Quaranta combines the surface-dwelling Luminor Due’s compact dimensions with water resistance more fitting of a PAM. Andrew and I had a chat about all things Quaranta, which you can see in the video below.
Clearly the most important thing here is the combination of approachable size, without departing from that classic UK 1:1 fake Panerai look. At 40mm x 48.9mm, the Luminor Quaranta wears phenomenally well. The cushion-shaped case sits atop lugs that curve sharply downwards, so even those with wrists smaller than mine should be able to enjoy it.
All the other recognisable features are there. The REG. T.M. text that appeared with the first Richemont-era Luminors still features on the signature crown guard, locking the crown into place when not in use. I appreciate that AAA replica Panerai chose the matte finish of strong directional brushing, a superior choice when compared to the highly-polished surfaces of the other 40mm best quality replica Panerai, the PAM01048. The Luminor Quaranta has a 22mm lug width, with all models mounted on quick-release alligator straps that taper to 20mm at the stainless-steel pin buckle.
The Swiss movement replica Panerai Luminor design is one of the few in the watch industry deserving of the iconic moniker. Now accessible in a smaller size, with specifications that match the style, this may be the watch that draws in the small-wristed crowd. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with the it, and found it difficult to send back when the time came. The top fake Panerai Luminor Quaranta is a true PAM and a great one at that, though at $10,800 AUD and with the P.900 movement, it’s certainly not a value proposition.
