Today’s model is a luxury fake Panerai Submersible. The German brand Brabus is best know as a high-performance aftermarket tuning company, dedicated to luxury cars. If you need your new Mercedes SL-Class or Maybach 57 souped-up with carbon fibre splitters and multi-piece alloy wheels – but done in, you know, a classy way – they’re the guys to call.
Brabus also does a line in ultra-modern speedboats, too. Its Shadow range comfortably places it in the top tier of luxury boating, with enough trendy design know-how that it has won the prestigious Red Dot Award in the ‘Product Design’ category.
Last September it announced a partnership with perfect replica Panerai UK, the Swiss-Italian brand known for its outsized dive watches and an enthusiasm for experiments with cutting-edge materials.
Its limited-run cheap fake Panerai Submersible S Brabus Black Ops Edition paired a skeletonised movement with a bunch of complications and looked as badass as its Jason Statham-y name suggested.
Today it has announced its second launch, the 1:1 fake Panerai Submersible S Brabus Blue Shadow Edition, a model that coincides with the announcement of the brand’s latest luxury day-boat, the Shadow 900 Deep Blue.
The super clone watch’s case is made using a form of 3D printing called Direct Metal Laser Slintering (DMLS) where a high-power laser melts and fuses together layers of metallic powder, while the bezel and the crown protector lever are made of Carbotech, a favoured AAA replica Panerai carbon fibre compound.
The extravagant material science extends to the tungsten micro-rotor in the movement, used to wind its twin barrels and giving this watch a 72-hour power reserve.
There’s also a GMT function on the high quality fake Panerai, an AM/PM indicator, a seconds reset and a polarised date display which seems to hover at 3 o’clock, without obscuring any of the skeletons workings.
