The combination of diving and gold is difficult to justify if we only insist on the suitability of this delicate precious metal for diving replica watch cases. But it is clear that the vast majority of divers will never be used as a tool watch other than to suffer a “immersion” of a few meters deep, so this exchange is increasingly taking place in the watchmaking world.
Most Successful Panerai Replica offers us its latest version of the submersible, which for the first time brings together two opposing concepts, the malleability of Goldtech gold and the extreme hardness of Carbotech. Named after the controversial Orocarbo name, this 44mm reference made in Goldetch is combined with a Carbotech ring that forms part of the bezel.
Despite its larger diameter, the PAM01070 follows in the aesthetic footsteps of last year’s Swiss 42mm Goldtech Submersible Replica, albeit with a more discreet ceramic bezel compared to Carbotech’s slats. On the other hand, I prefer the satin finish of the 44mm model to the polished finish of the 42mm model, as it is more in line with the theoretical sportsmanship of the submarine.
One detail to keep in mind is that instead of a sapphire crystal, its screw-in back is blind, made of titanium with a black DLC coating. Personally, I would choose sapphire crystal, not just because of the beauty of its mechanism, but because it is the most elegant choice for finishing a gold case.
For the first time in the Cheap Panerai Replica collection, the dial has a satin sun finish. This decoration is typical of the elegant Luminor Due, although in this case it is more subtle. The remaining elements are the usual elements, namely the hour-marked clock and date consisting of eight circular and two double-bar applied indexes (at 12 and 6 o’clock), skeletonized hour and minute hands and small seconds at 9 o’clock in 3. Its nighttime readability is guaranteed by the extensive application of white Super-LumiNova with green and blue glow.
Inside it houses the Panerai Replica Watch Caliber P.900, a self-winding movement that provides a three-day power reserve. The name hides the OPXXXIV, the mechanism based on the ValFleurier ebauche (owned by the same Richemont group), which also animate the watch, is as aesthetically pleasing as some of the 38 and 42mm Luminor Due references.
Panerai Replica Water-resistant to 300 meters, it comes with a black rubber strap, black DLC-coated titanium trapezoidal clasp and black Panerai Sportech with beige stitching.
