Replica Clearance Introducing the Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days “Marina Militare” PAM673

Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days PAM673 5

Each of the finishing appears to be machine-produced, but the edges of these plates and the countersinks are well beveled and polished nevertheless — adding a little flair to an otherwise very technical looking movement. Texts are in blue and are very beautifully done in relatively small, discreet letters — and this still contrasts well against the subtle, horizontal brushed finishing of this plates.Overall, the P.5000 is a developed taste in the meaning that it doesn’t at all want to be the prettiest, most shockingly good-looking motion out there — but, on a personal note, part of me is happy about that and I appreciate that Panerai seems to have thought this through and proceeded with something which matches their army styling and heritage more. The P.5000 additionally contains an impressively low number of elements at only 127 in total.A power reserve indicator arguably could have been a wonderful component but would certainly have pushed up the cost and added sophistication. So, in this instance and paired with the 192-hour power reserve, I didn’t miss it that much.Price for the the Panerai Luminor Base 8 Days Acciaio PAM561 is CHF 5,700, which is CHF 1,200 dearer than the PAM630, that has essentially the same dial (different lume color and base emblem at 6) but the OP I (ETA 6497) hand-wound motion instead of the P.5000. In other words, the P.5000 using its 8-day power book will run you an additional CHF 1,200 that, for anyone comfortable with all Swiss luxury watch pricing practices, really isn’t that big of a jump.Sticking with all the P.5000, Panerai has a wide assortment of alternatives to the PAM561 including the exact same watch with a black dial (PAM560) as well as a titanium-clad version (PAM562) for CHF 600 more.

Panerai returns to its roots with the pleasingly traditional Luminor 1950 3 Days PAM00673, a limited edition of 1000 watches modelled on the ref. 6152/1, complete with retro-style gilded pencil hands.

It’s been a hyperactive year for Panerai, having introduced new models at SIHH 2016, followed by a half dozen more just a few months later, plus a quartet of blue dial Special Editions, and the whopper of a watch, the Radiomir 1940 minute repeater. Many of the new releases diversify away from Panerai’s usual style, but in a smart manner, as with the slim Luminor Due for example.

The newest from Panerai, however, is eminently traditional. While it is more of the same, the classic Panerai Watches Edmonton Replica aesthetic is timeless and compelling. The Luminor 1950 3 Days PAM673 ticks all the boxes for the vintage feel: a 47mm Luminor case in stainless steel, matte sandwich dial, engraved “Marine Militare”, and gold-plated pencil hands. In fact, the new PAM673 is essentially the Radiomir 1940 “Marina Militare” PAM587 with a crown locking mechanism.

Inside is the hand-wound P.3000 movement, a calibre with three days’ power reserve that is found in most hand-wind 47mm Panerai watches. The P.3000 inside is the second generation variant, with separate bridges for the gear train, but functionally identical to the first generation.
