Enter the Submersible QuarantaQuattro Bianco PAM01226
However, during Watches And Wonders this year, Swiss replica Panerai UK surprised me with another white-dialed creation — the PAM01226. It is the Submersible QuarantaQuattro Bianco, also known as the 44mm Submersible with a white dial. AAA fake Panerai scaled back the more typical 47mm Submersible case and introduced a 42mm version in 2016. Now Panerai offers something in the middle, (re)introducing the 44mm Submersible case.
In fact, this case size is not totally new for the Submersible. The first ones from 1998 also came in 44mm cases. In the past, however, I completely ignored the cheap fake Panerai Submersible, as the design was just not for me. At least, not at the time. When I look back now on the PAM00087, or even the fairly basic PAM00024, I think that they’re pretty cool and handsome replica watches online in hindsight.
On the wrist
Strapping on the perfect replica Panerai Submersible QuarantaQuattro Bianco PAM01226 had an effect I didn’t expect. From the get-go, I liked it a lot. And it’s funny because, normally, I tend to stay away from white dials (with some exceptions, of course). But the combination of the steel bezel, the green strap, and the white dial of the high quality copy Panerai’s simply works for me. It would probably have been different if the bezel were black ceramic or another contrasting color.
The size works perfectly on my 19cm wrist, and I can’t understand why I didn’t try the Submersible watches before. In the past, I would have always picked the Luminor or Luminor Marina, as those models are so tied to the brand’s history. The luxury fake Panerai Submersible, however, looks good and robust, and frankly, the history of super clone Panerai is so “all over the place”, that my purist’s view on this brand has faded a bit.
UK 1:1 replica Panerai’s PAM01226 comes on a green rubber strap, which is easy to swap for a different-colored rubber strap or a 24mm leather strap of choice. You don’t need screwdrivers anymore, risking scratches on the case. Just use the quick-release button under the lug to take off the strap.
Inside the PAM01226 is Swiss movement fake Panerai’s caliber P.900. This is not an in-house-developed movement, but rather a Richemont Group movement found in other watches from the group’s brands. At this price point, a true in-house movement would have been nice, but I am also of the opinion that the whole “in-house” thing is rather overrated. During the introduction of this model (but this also applies to some other Panerai replica watches online), the biggest complaint was that top copy Panerai is using the P.900 in a watch with this price tag.
It’s mainly the clean white dial in combination with the large case and bezel in 316L steel that makes me want to wear the Panerai PAM01226 fake for sale. The green rubber strap adds a bit of that military or utilitarian flavor. The only thing I am not sure about is the date aperture. There’s a little beveled step around the date window, probably because the date disc sits deeper than on other super clone watches UK. I could have done without a date altogether, but to me, it’s a minor thing and definitely not a dealbreaker in this case.
Just as the white-dialed best quality fake Panerai Submersible PAM00113 pulled me in nearly 20 years ago, this white-dialed PAM01226 might be my re-entry into the Panerai brand. As always, we’d be interested to hear what you think of this model. Feel free to drop your thoughts in the comments below.
