An Assertive Design
The perfect fake Panerai PAM00024 echoes and updates — or more accurately, imposes — the style used for the Luminor. This timepiece is unashamedly modern and assertive, with a bold and confident diameter of 44 millimetres and a thickness of 15.3 millimetres. Officine Panerai replica for men came up with an angular, no-nonsense, and characterful case — much more so than those of the 1950s Luminor models — featuring the widely spaced yet very short lugs that have become its hallmark. The rotating bezel and crown protection bridge are directly inspired by the Egiziano model created in 1956, known to collectors as GPF 2/56.
The luxury replica Panerai Submersible PAM00024 has several distinguishing features. It’s one of the first to be fitted with an easily adjustable and secure folding clasp. The bezel’s markers literally emerge out of the steel rather than being integrated in a smooth surface as previously. The PAM00024 dial doesn’t have AAA quality fake Panerai’s characteristic sandwich structure, either: it’s flat with applique and printed indicators; and to meet ISO requirements, the Submersible concept makes use of a clearer display of the first quarter-hour on the bezel.
Indeed, this particular Swiss made copy Panerai PAM complies with ISO 6425 standards. To achieve this, it has traded in its fixed bezel for a unidirectional one. It also has an independent small seconds hand at 9 o’clock, while hours and minutes hands are skeletonised in such a way as to ensure optimum readability at all times. The magnificently polished case is certified water-resistant to a depth of 300 metres.
While these features were new at the time, marking the evolution of high quality replica Panerai towards the contemporary world of dive watches, a number of other characteristics ensure the PAM24 also remains a Panerai through and through. They include the crown protection system (mounted on a ball bearing for a softer feel), typical of top super clone Panerais since 1956, the Egiziano, and later Reference 6152/1, better known as the Luminor. This feature prevents any unwanted movement of the crown. Panerai fake for sale has added a clever touch on the PAM00024: the crown automatically releases when the pressure on the protection system is released. In other words, the crown is activated as soon as it’s released, with no need to unscrew it.
For the movement, UK Swiss movement fake Panerai used a Valjoux 7750-P1 base movement known as the OP III: a COSC-certified unidirectional automatic winding caliber beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour with a 42-hour power reserve. This best quality copy Panerai was followed by the PAM00025, featuring a titanium case. More recently, the OP III has been replaced by the celebrated P9010, a 100% in-house movement with a three-day power reserve. First developed in 2015, this is now fitted in all Panerai Submersibles replica online.
