Recently,High Quality Panerai Replica extended their range of chronographs to include the Panerai Luminor Chrono collection, boasting a fresh automatic movement and a suite of dial colours.
The first chronograph to feature the Panerai name on its dial was a massive, 52mm prototype that was produced for the Italian Navy in 1943. Known as the Mare Nostrum, it never went into production, but it offered a template for future two-register chronographs to be made in the decades that followed it.
Now, sitting within the enormously popular Luxury Panerai Luminor Replica collection, Panerai is offering a contemporary chronograph collection that has something for everyone. The collection is comprised of four references, three of which are cased in steel with a single model available in Panerai’s proprietary Goldtech.
The Best Panerai Replica Watches features cases that measure 44mm in diameter, with a sizable lug-to-lug measurement of 53.8mm and a thickness of 15.6mm in steel and 15.1mm in Goldtech. Now, these aren’t exactly petite numbers, but then again, you’re unlikely to walk into a Panerai boutique if you’re after a 34mm timepiece.
The cases also feature the iconic Panerai crown protector on the right-hand side of the case, which secures the Exact Panerai Replica Watches to 50m of water resistance and the steel references to 100m of water resistance. In a thoughtful design nod, Panerai has situated the chronograph pushers on the left-hand side of the case, in a break from the norm that adds balance to the overall visual impression.
Blue and gold almost always look great together, and that’s certainly the case here. The trio of steel models arrive with your choice of either a black or white dial on a leather strap, or if you want a steel bracelet instead, there’s another stunning blue dial option.
All four of the dials feature the same twin subdial layout, perhaps in reference to the original Mare Nostrum, with a tachymeter scale that makes its way around the circumference of the Panerai Replica Watches China dial. The subdials step down ever so slightly from the rest of the dial, in line with the cut-out, sandwich-style hour markers filled with lashings of luminous paint.
Powering the new collection is the P.9200 movement, which is freshly developed and a slight departure from the fly-back chronograph offerings that Panerai AAA Replica Watch has focused its efforts on in recent years. As a result, the P.9200 movement is likely to feature more consistently in Panerai chronograph offerings in the near future. It features a highly reliable Glucydur balance wheel, ticks away at 28,800vph and offers 42 hours of power reserve.
As mentioned earlier, the collection will typically arrive on a luxurious alligator leather strap, secured with a boldly shaped pin buckle. The reference in steel with a blue dial arrives on a matching steel bracelet, featuring links inspired by the Luminor crown protector, and offering a slightly more hard-wearing option.
All considered the Panerai Luminor Chrono Replica collection is compelling, not just as a new member of the Luminor family, but as a stand-alone luxury chronograph. It’s got a whole heap of wrist presence, attractive finishing to the case, dial and movement, and an enticing symmetry thanks to the pushers opposite the crown.
