In the span of just two decades, Panerai has risen to become one of the most popular watch brands in the world and also a bona fide manufacture. Today, we are going to take a look at one of their more unconventional watches, the Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Acciaio watch. The Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Acciaio replica watches, also known more simply as the PAM 524, is a great choice for lovers of Panerai’s iconic Luminor case that want something a little more special to stand out. As its name clearly states, the PAM 524 is a chronograph with a flyback complication, and I love how Panerai has integrated these functions into the watch.
For readers not familiar with a flyback function, it lets the wearer reset and start the chronograph mechanism without first stopping and then reseting and then starting it again. Pushing the flyback button is enough to reset the chronograph to zero and after which the chronograph seconds hand will immediately resume timing without any interruption. This is especially useful for timing quick continuous events like lap times.
First things first, the case is based on Panerai’s very popular 44mm 1950 Luminor case. Thanks to its bold cushion shape design and its instantly recognizable crown-protecting device, the Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Acciaio PAM 524 is big, chunky, brash, and has tremendous wrist presence. If you’re looking for a discreet timepiece, best look elsewhere.
Despite its chunkiness, the PAM 524 actually wears quite well on the wrist, thanks to the long, curved lugs and comfortable strap. That said, it’s a bit top-heavy, and the thickness is something that owners will need to get used to, otherwise they will be banging the watch into all sorts of things. The case is also well constructed with sharp lines and different finishing on the surfaces. The bezel is mirror-polished, while other parts of the case are brushed.
The first thing that strikes you is the bright blue chronograph seconds hand Panerai replica watches. It also lets other Paneristis know immediately that your Panerai is a little special. And unlike other Panerai watches, the Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Acciaio PAM 524 has markers for the individual minutes, which is necessary for the chronograph function. The individual minute markers, as well as the larger hour markers, and hours, minutes and running seconds hands are all rendered in matching ecru, which gives the dial a warm and vintage look and feel. Even the date is printed in the same ecru color, which is a nice and thoughtful touch.
