Panerai Luminor Marina Quaranta
When you think of unadorned watches tucked quietly under their cuffs, you probably don’t think of Panerai. It’s just not in the DNA of the Florentine-born brand, but exudes a Mediterranean confidence that can be summed up in one word…sprezzatura. This year, however, Panerai launched the Cheap Replica Luminor Marina Quaranta collection, offering a 40mm case size for the first time.
Just like the fashion world, styles and tastes in the watch world change over time. In the early 2000s, when it came to choosing a timepiece on the wrist, bigger was better. Today, however, preferences have slowly shifted towards smaller Luxury Panerai Replica Watch, in part due to the enthusiasm for retro-inspired sports watches.
This incremental shift has not gone unnoticed at Panerai, with the design team carefully shrinking one of their most enduring designs to an almost universally wearable diameter. Changing the proportions of the iconic Luminor shape is no mean feat, but Panerai has done so without sacrificing too much of its iconic Italian flair.
The result is a polished bezel that stands out more than the brushed cushion covers, lugs that appear slightly wider in proportion, and an oversized crown guard that you absolutely can’t miss. The new Best Replica Panerai Watches 40mm stainless steel case is now more suitable for more people, especially with the three dial options that Panerai offers in the new collection.
The Panerai Luminor Marina Quaranta is available with a choice of blue, black or white dials – each with a slightly different impression on the wrist. Both the black and white options feature a matte finish, and both come with a comfortable black alligator strap, making it a little conservative in style.
By contrast, the Luxury Panerai Replica Watches blue dial has a vibrant sunburst finish that plays with the light almost enthusiastically, emitting slightly different colors depending on whether you’re in direct sunlight or indoors. The blue dial is also paired with a matching navy blue alligator leather strap to give the watch a sportier, more casual look.
All three dials have a sandwich structure, contrasting with the skeletonized luminous hour markers. In keeping with the strong Italian design flair, all three models feature a running seconds subdial at 9 o’clock, which has the effect of balancing the date window and the large crown guard on the right side of the watch.
Below the dial of the Top Swiss Replica Luminor Marina Quaranta collection is the in-house P.900 automatic movement. Beating at 28,800vph with a thoroughly modern power reserve of 72 hours, it’s a solid workhorse in Panerai’s stables. While you can’t see the movement through the solid steel caseback, the caseback ensures that the collection is guaranteed to be water resistant to 100m.
The new Cheap Luminor Marina Quaranta Replica collection represents a slight shift in the spirit of Panerai, opening the watch to a wider audience with its approachable case size.
While Panerai is known and loved for the oversized wrists of its watches, offering a larger size range is only a good thing for the brand. If you’ve considered Panerai in the past but were hesitant because of its size, this new trio is sure to dissuade you.
