The Complete Panerai Buying Guide

Panerai’s Vast and Diverse Catalog

Through four collections, Panerai Swiss Replica offers over 20 in-house movements as well a slew of movements built on third-party bases, and these calibers are found in well over 200 individual watch models available in steel, bronze, titanium, gold, platinum and proprietary case materials such as BMG-TECH (bulk metallic glass), Carbotech (polyether ether ketone) and Panerai Composite (synthetic ceramic using micro arc oxidation).

Sometimes the distinction between models is merely a matter of case material or dial color, but it’s common to grow frustrated shopping for a Panerai Replica Watches Online because one’s preferred look and fit don’t always come equipped with the movement/functions one prefers — or vice-versa. We aim to make navigating this dense catalog as easy as possible.

Panerai Numbers

Each watch is assigned an individual reference or PAM number: PAMxxxxx. Colloquially, the reference numbers are often referred to without the zeros between the PAM and the numbers at the end.

Panerai’s Four Model Categories

There might be many dozens of models in the Cheap Panerai Replica family, but if you know that 44mm is the size for you, that handily narrows it down to about 12. Then, you’ve just got dial colors, complications and price to consider.

However, much of the variety in Panerai comes from its movements and complications. The quintessential Panerai experience is quite possibly a Luminor at 44mm, but you can also narrow down your choices by the likes of case material.Below we’ve selected models within each of the Panerai Replica Watches four collections (Luminor, Luminor Due, Radiomir and Submersible) that best represent the brand and the respective collection.

Panerai Luminor

Beginning in the late 1940s, Panerai First Copy Watches moved away from Radiomir lume to the tritium-based mixture patented as Luminor. In 1950 Panerai introduced its signature crown lock. The Luminor line features this crown lock, integrated lugs, and a cushion case shape that has its roots in the past but was also modernized a bit for 1993’s first civilian collection. This is easily the most recognizable Panerai look today.

Panerai Luminor Base Logo PAM01086

The Base Logo is the brand’s most basic, with several options in the Luminor and Radiomir collections. You get two-hand time telling via a simple manually wound movement — and a painted dial rather than the brand’s signature “sandwich dial.” Newer models have in-house movements but older ones were sourced.

Panerai Luminor Marina PAM02392

The headline here is 42mm. A lot of people find the bulk of the Panerai Replica Watches For Discount catalog at 44mm, 45mm and 47mm simply unwieldy despite loving everything else about the watches. So many rejoiced when this new version was introduced, offering the complete package — only in a smaller and more wearable one. Note that it’s water-resistant to 100m, rather than a traditional dive watch’s 300m, but that’s more than sufficient for most needs.

Panerai Luminor Power Reserve PAM00423

The PAM 432 is a good representative of the brand’s big-boy 47mm watches, as well as an example of complications. Here we have a power reserve indicator, as you’ll find on many other models, particularly useful since the movement here is manually wound. Other complications you’ll find are the likes of GMTs and flyback chronographs, often in combination.

Panerai Luminor Due

Though generally smaller, thinner, and feeling a bit “fancier,” the Fake Iced Out Due Replica Watches feels like a sub-collection of the Luminor line and features the familiar design and crown guard locking mechanism. It’s understandable that the brand wanted to separate it from the famously rugged Luminor with its dive watch origins, though, as the Due has only a dress-watch-level of water resistance at 30m and a slimmer profile. The Due line premiered in 2018 and is Panerai’s answer to demands for both smaller and more feminine models.

Panerai Luminor Due PAM00927

Offering a similar look and size to 42mm Luminor models, it might at first be hard to tell what makes this a Due. It’s got less water resistance and a thinner case, and this particular model features brushed titanium, an automatic movement with 3 days of power reserve and an overall elegant execution based on vintage models.

Panerai Piccolo Due PAM01029

These petite Panerais at only 38mm in the Newest Top Quality Luminor Due Replica collection are called Piccolo Due. The smallest Panerai you’re going to find, it still has the captivating look (minus the presence) and shows that the brand’s charisma doesn’t rely on its size. This one is fancied up in the brand’s Goldtech gold alloy, but there are more affordable versions in steel as well.
