This year Panerai attaches much more importance to the diving watches. Remaining the consistent style of Panerai, these new robust fake watches are with military style and they will be best choices for strong men
The Panerai Luminor Submersible copy with black camouflage dial is durable and robust and the material of the dial is also the Carbotech. So what is the Carbotech ? In fact, It is actually a proprietary carbon composite that results in an uneven matte black appearance, producing a distinctive visual effect of Damascus steel or marble, meanwhile, Carbotech is more durable than most carbon fibers.
The military green elements add the strong style to the Panerai knockoff watch with Carbotech case and the green rubber strap reinforces it perfectly. By the way, it is a regret that the timepiece is limited to only 33 pieces.
When the new year is coming closer people tend to look back at what the current year has brought them. During the course of the year, the tide turned, and many brands enjoyed, once more, increased sales. This was in part due to some incredible new models that were introduced, which worked up an appetite with Panerai replica watches collectors and connoisseurs. At Haute Time we also look back, with our favorite watches of 2017!
Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Bronzo
Panerai added this year six(!) new models to their Luminor Submersible collection fake watches. While they are all bold and beautiful, it was the 1950 3 Days Automatic Bronzo that we liked the best. Why? Because a 47mm case is going to look awesome when it is getting some of that patina that bronze is so well-known for!
The Sky-Dweller was not all new in 2017, but Rolex did introduce the most complicated watch in their current collection now in all steel. This makes this great watch even more desirable, and more affordable. Combined with a blue dial, it is perfect for the world traveler who likes a robust, practical, luxury watch to match his lifestyle. For those who cannot choose between steel or gold, did Rolex also introduce a two-tone version of the Sky-Dweller, giving you the best of both worlds!
Breguet Marine Equation Marchante 5887
Breguet copy watches are known for its complicated watches, but the Marine Equation Marchante 5887 is in a realm of their own. Next to a tourbillon, the watch is fitted with a running equation of time, perpetual calendar, and a power reserve indicator. The automatic movement is equipped with a silicon balance spring, a peripheral rotor, and supplies you with a power reserve of a generous 80-hours. You want more? How about the back of the movement engraved with a Royal Louis vessel of the French Royal Navy, showing all its details in full glory?
The first time most of us were introduced to the Panerai reference 389 replica watches, it was on the wrist of Sylvester Stallone as he punched, kicked, and generally just recklessly blasted his way through The Expendables 3 in 2014. In many ways, it’s sort of a fitting watch for such a film – equally eye-catching and over-the-top, but a bit past its prime, and probably best reserved for longtime fans of the genre. The new Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 Amagnetic 3 Days Automatic Titanio PAM01389 brings a few neat updates to the 389, without compromising the overall execution or design intent of the original. But unless you’re Sly Stallone or a Paneristi die-hard, that might not exactly be a good thing.
Technically speaking, the 389 was significant not just for debut screen time fake Panerai watches, but for its build, as it exhibited the brand’s first ceramic bezel in a Luminor model (note how the cool hourly markers are inset into the ceramic itself), and it was the first anti-magnetic watch produced by Panerai. It’s quite a handsome look – introducing a modern, industrial dive watch vibe to the the austere, minimalist aesthetic that’s defined the Panerai design language for the last 60 years or so.
Many of those characteristics repeat in the 1389, which could largely be called an update to an existing reference, rather than an entirely new one. Like the original, the 1389 is built with a titanium case and fitted with an iron dial, and a soft iron Faraday cage encasing its movement beneath, rendering it impervious to the many modern dangers to mechanical watches. Hell, it even comes on the same strap as before – Panerai’s excellent 26 x 22mm accordion rubber dive strap that looks as though it was designed specifically for this reference all along.
Otherwise, little else has changed since 2014. The applied hourly indices are now a razor’s edge thicker, the running small seconds hand at 9:00 is now a cheerful shade of blue, and the luminous application to the hands and indices is now two-tone – the minute hand glows blue to match the bezel pip, while all other markings glow green.
The one thing that hasn’t changed between the 389 and the 1389, is that this is still, very big copy watches at 47mm. Yes, it’s considerably lighter than a comparable 47mm PAM00372 in stainless steel, but the weight savings do little to reduce the watch’s visual presence, which threatens to overwhelm at most angles. Now, like most Panerai models, the 1389 does have generously downward-turned lugs, and a relatively (for its overall size) conservative lug-to-lug measurement. But neither of those amends are quite enough to overcome the wearability limitations for all but those who’ve never skipped ‘arm day.’
It may be the rare luxury Panerai watches nerd (that happens to also be a materials science nerd) who will be able to fully appreciate why Panerai decided it was a good idea to note “BMG-TECH” on the dial of a Luminor Submersible as a way of telling you about the watch case materials. Panerai themselves refer to the value of the PAM 692 as being an “invisible innovation.” In a sense that is a good thing when it comes to the appeal of bulk metallic glass. What is hidden in the Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 BMG-TECH 3-Days Automatic PAM 692 is a hint at what future materials will be increasingly used in watches.
The popularity of ceramic, for example, demonstrates a real need for watchmakers to move beyond traditional metals. The decision to work with non-metallic case materials isn’t just about being trendy and fashionable, but is often related to real value for the consumer. While we are on the topic of ceramic, indeed it was a material that allowed you to have a permanently white case. It also allowed for high levels of scratch resistance as well as resistance to various chemicals.
Panerai likes to experiment with new case materials fake Panerai – so the fact that they would take a product and make it out of bulk metallic glass isn’t particularly novel. With that said, if BMG-TECH proves cost-effective to produce and popular with customers, I think it has big potential. In short, bulk metallic glass is a metal alloy with an amorphous structure versus a crystalline structure. This allows for fewer surface imperfections in the base material, that translates into a number of benefits for the consumer.

In short, bulk metallic glass is a metal alloy with an amorphous structure versus a crystalline structure. This allows for fewer surface imperfections in the base material, that translates into a number of benefits for the consumer.
Unlike steel, bulk metallic glass has a lot more zirconium in it (which is why it has “glass” in the name), and it also happens to be non-ferrous (not magnetic). Panerai says that their particular bulk metallic glass alloy blend consists of zirconium, copper, aluminum, titanium, and nickel. What matters is that BMG-TECH looks a lot like steel, and can be decorated like steel – but it isn’t steel. Other alternative materials to metals sadly don’t look like metals – even if they are preferred by consumers and offer manufacturing benefits. Bulk metallic glass is essentially a metal alloy, so it can be polished like metal, and is tough like metal in that a fall on a hard surface would never shatter it (a possibility with ceramic). So the goal here is to find materials that offer the same aesthetic appeal as a metal, but that are easier to produce into finely-finished parts, and that offer consumers clear durability benefits.
Other brands use various types of alloys such as this for watch cases. I recall that Audemars Piguet sometimes use a material they call “Cermet” (ceramic metal) for bezels and perhaps as an entire case material. The benefit of cermet was similar to BMG-TECH in that it was tough like ceramic but had the visual appearance of metal. Cermet was a bit darker in shade, so it leads me to believe that bulk metallic glass might be a bit of a different formulation for this Panerai PAM 692. The caseback is titanium, which also happens to be the part of the case with the most detail. My instincts tell me that while bulk metallic glass is a compelling material, it is harder (and thus more expensive) to machine than most metals.
Smaller and thinner watches seem to be the trend again lately, but sometimes you just need a larger watch. Not only because you enjoy wearing something substantial on your wrist, but also because this provides the room to fit it with the most extraordinary complications!
Jacob & Co Twin Turbo
With a diameter of 57.30 mm the Twin Turbo by Jacob & Co is a behemoth of a watch. And rightfully so because it puts all that space to good use, not only by giving you an incredible view at those two triple axis tourbillons, but also to house the minute repeater. This watch is the very first that combines these two complications. Like many oversized watches is also this Jacob & Co shaped in such a way that it is still very comfortable to wear. This is a must for a watch like this, because it is so spectacular that you simply don’t want to take it off.
A.Lange & Söhne Zeitwerk Minute Repeater
While with some brands a diameter of 44.2 mm is not that large, we are talking here about an A. Lange & Söhne. Yet, also this watch shows that space can be put to good use. In fact, it is still amazing that the brand only needs this amount of space to not only fit the 771 part movement, but also to house enough energy to not only power the jumping hours and minutes, but the minute repeater as well. Its very balanced design also works with the space, as opposed to against it, making it look elegant despite its large diameter.
With a diameter of 49mm is this replica Panerai Radiomir 1940 large, even for a brand that started the trend of larger watches. It has, however, a great excuse, as it is also the most complicated Panerai ever made. It combines a tourbillon with a minute repeater and a second time zone. Unique is that the minute repeater can chime the time for both the home time as well as the other time zone that is set. That makes this Panerai a precious, yet perfect, travel companion.
In recent times, haute horology brands have been paring down on their offerings by producing simpler watches. Greubel Forsey, famous for its tourbillon watches, released the Signature 1 last year – a time-only, non-tourbillon watch that is the brand’s simplest yet. Likewise, Romain Gauthier fake watches announced its new time-only Insight Micro-Rotor watch earlier this year at Baselworld 2017. Like the Signature One, the Romain Gauthier Insight Micro-Rotor only tells the time. But even though it may look simple, the amount of work that goes into the Insight Micro-Rotor and its level of craftsmanship is still very high.
Let’s cover the basics first. The Insight Micro-Rotor is available in a red gold or platinum case, and with a white, blue, or black enamel dial. Each model is limited to just 10 pieces, which means that there will only be 60 Insight Micro-Rotor watches in total. The diameter of the case measures a very reasonable 39.5mm and thickness is 12.9mm. On the wrist, the Insight Micro-Rotor wears a tad larger than what its dimensions would suggest. This is likely due to the slightly long lugs.
The case has alternate finishes. The bezel and case sides are mirror polished while the tops of the lugs are satin finished. The crown is positioned at 2 o’clock and is a little hard to operate because it is so thin and hard to grip. Water resistance is 50m, which is commendable given that most haute horology watches usually come with pitiful water resistance. At 50m, this means you can wash your hands comfortably without worrying about a little water getting on the watch.
The magic, however, is all on the dial. The name Insight comes from Gauthier’s desire to give owners full view of the mechanics and finishing of the copy watches for men. He has certainly succeeded. At 12 o’clock, you have a large enamel dial and skeletonized hands that show the hours and minutes. Just below it, you have a smaller enamel dial that shows the running seconds. The dials overlap slightly, but legibility is never an issue. One thing that I would like to point out, however, is that the hour and minute dial has Roman numerals for the hour makers, whereas the sub seconds dial uses Arabic numerals to mark out every five seconds. This inconsistency might irk some readers, but at least the dial is expertly printed and the numerals, even under a macro camera lens, are razor sharp.
Right below the subsidiary seconds is the balance wheel, which is held in place by an attractively shaped balance bridge. The balance uses eccentric weights for adjustments and the balance bridge is incredibly finished with sharply beveled edges. Note also the screws that hold it in place. The Romain Gauthier Insight Micro-Rotor uses these unique screws with “S” shaped grooves, which is a clear sign of the lengths that Gauthier goes to ensure that his movements are one-of-a-kind and inimitable. It also means that servicing in the future will likely have to go through Romain Gauthier as I don’t think third-party watchmakers will have the appropriate tools to remove the screws.
Yes, smart watches seem to have almost completely taken over the task for which we once trusted out mechanical watch: telling time. The reason for this is that they do so much more, so easily (as they are computers and not mechanical master pieces) and also for far less money (being constructed by robots and not replica master watch makers – Panerai).
That makes it that the watch has been switching over its territory: from reliable timekeeper to an expression of one’s personal taste, preferences, and yes, social standing. But that doesn’t mean that the watch has become obsolete in what it does best, telling time! The living, beating heart of a mechanical watch, can still offer a lot of added pleasure to its owner, and makes it, in fact, a very cool tool!
The coolness is not found in novelty, but in tradition. The fact that this type of timekeepers has been made for centuries migrated from the pocket to the wrist, and can indeed easily outlive your Apple Watch by a generation of four. And I am not speaking here of generations of Apple Watches, which would be about eight years in total, but generations of humans.
How cool is it that something mechanical, will still tick and function just as well hundred years from now, as it does today? Powered by the motion of your wrist, or perhaps even better because of more personal, by your own fingers as you go through the motions of winding your watch. Why do you think that even avant-garde watchmakers like Hublot and Richard Mille are still making mechanical watches, with not a smart watch in sight? Because they know that a mechanical movement made with high-tech materials and cutting edge technology is the bridge to the future, and makes by far the coolest tools!
The new Panerai Mare Nostrum PAM 716 replica are almost a like-for-like remake of the “Pre-Vendôme” ref. 5218-301/A that was introduced in 1993 and produced until 1997 or so, in a production run of 990 watches including several dozen for Sylvester Stallone, according to fan-site Paneristi. Introduced before Richemont acquired Panerai in 1997 – the Swiss luxury group was known as Vendôme back then – the ref. 5218-301/A was notable for being the first Panerai without a black dial.
Based on the oversized, 52mm Mare Nostrum prototypes of 1943, the ref. 5218-301/A had a 42mm steel case and a basic modular movement. It was a handsome, fuss-free watch – which is exactly what the new Mare Nostrum is.
The special case
The steel case is 42mm with a circular brushed top and polished sides. Though it feels smallish compared to the typical Panerai, which now averages 47mm, the Mare Nostrum is a sizeable. Both the bezel and the straight ends of the case where it meets the lugs gives it a bigger footprint than comparably sized watches.
Necessarily it is almost identical to the 1993 original, a good thing since the remake retains the uncomplicated feel of the original. Differences between this and the original are minuscule, but they included the added lettering on crown and the depth of the screw bars for the lugs (the screw heads appear deeper on the originals).
Dark blue with a fine grained surface fake Panerai watches, the dial is appealingly functional. Like the original it has slightly recessed sub-dials, and appears identical at first glance, though minor differences reveal themselves up close. Those include the serif font currently used, as well as the the thinner rings on the chronograph sub-dials.
Notably, the new Mare Nostrum is a remake of how the 1990s watch looks today, and not how it appeared when it was first launched. That explains the ivory-tone Super-Luminova on the dial and hands, which approximates the tritium paint on the originals that has darkened over time.
Panerai also stuck to the same movement as found in the original, which is a basic and economical ETA 2801 topped by a Dubois-Depraz chronograph module Panerai fake watches. Christened the cal. OP XXXIII, it is hand-wound with a 42-hour power reserve. While it may be concealed underneath the solid back, the ETA 2801 is not much to behold. What the movement lacks in beauty it makes up for in reliability and cost.
Officine Panerai has launched a Special Edition Luminor 1950 Sealand 3 Days Automatic Acciaio – 44mm timepiece with retailer and long-term partner Ali bin Ali, to be sold exclusively at Panerai boutiques in Doha, Riyadh and Jeddah.
The new Luminor 1950 Sealand (PAM00849) replica watches are personalised with a beautifully hand-engraved cover for the dial featuring white Arabian horses riding in the desert with palm trees and the sea in the background. Arabian horses are a true source of pride for the region – one of the oldest breeds in the world, reputed for their beauty, good nature, high-spirit and ability to learn quickly.
Finely engraved, yet robust and masculine, the Panerai 44mm Luminor fake watches case of this Special Edition is made of brushed steel, and features the patented iconic device that protects the crown. The gold calf strap with BA brushed steel buckle adds to the overall sturdy appearance of this work of art for the wrist that is water resistant to 100 metres.
Under the lid, surrounded by the polished steel bezel, we see the luminous hour and minute hands centred on a large grey dial, with date at 3 o’clock and seconds at 9 o’clock. Black indices and large Arabic numbers of 12 and 6 and are surrounded by luminous dot markers for easy reading at night. The inside of the decorated lid has a polished mirror effect for extra viewing pleasure.
Powered by the automatic mechanical Panerai P 9000 calibre that is entirely designed and crafted by the Panerai manufacture in Neuchâtel, this timepiece is sure to please connoisseurs and collectors. The watch is part of a series of Special Editions created by Officine Panerai for clients of Panerai boutiques throughout the world.
In limited edition of 60 units Panerai replica watches, with a retail price of AED 85,000 (approx. $23,150 USD) it is sold exclusively at Officine Panerai Boutiques at the Doha Villaggio Mall in Qatar, and in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia at Al Tahlia in Riyadh and Jameel Square in Jeddah.
With the new Luminor 1950 3 Days Automatic PAM 722 fake watches and PAM 723, Panerai returns to the design of its very first steel bracelet that debuted in 1999, featuring links that trace the semicircular form of the Luminor crown bridge.
Like the watch case the new bracelet is made of 316L stainless steel, the most common steel alloy in watchmaking. While the design evokes the first generation bracelet, it’s been significantly simplified (eliminating the screws on the back required to hold the links together), while becoming slimmer to fit the thinner watch case. Each link of the new bracelet is made up of three pieces, held together by a single lateral screw.
While the restyled bracelet is being introduced on the two new models – PAM 722 and PAM 723 – it is available separately and will fit any Luminor 1950 watch equipped with the P.9010 movement.
The Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days Automatic (PAM00722) is the smaller of the pair, with a 42mm steel case. The dial adopts the colours recently favoured by Panerai – namely faux vintage, ecru-tone Super-Luminova on the dial and hands with a pale blue accent in the form of the sub-seconds hand.
Inside is the P.9010, the second generation of Panerai’s basic in-house automatic that was unveiled last year. It’s a thin movement 6mm high, with a three-day power reserve and an independently adjustable hour hand for easy setting when travelling.
