As 47mm behemoths go, there aren’t many that are green. This one, however, the perfect replica Panerai Luminor Submersible, very much is. And that’s not the only color you’re getting either, thanks to the marine-grade bronze used to fashion the case. You may think that this pairing is arbitrary — and maybe it is — but I think there’s something more to it, even if it is by accident.
Before hipster 1:1 fake Panerai UK, there was military Panerai, an outfit that supplied the Italian Navy with watches and other instruments in order for special forces divers to do their secret, underwater jobs. That’s why everything about luxury copy Panerai looks overbuilt — because it is. Never mind knocking your watch on a doorframe; these high quality replica watches were constructed to take a ride on a manned torpedo through enemy minefields. The watches needed to be as tough as the people wearing them.
The watch this draws inspiration from, the “Egiziano,” built in 1956 for the Egyptian Navy, was the toughest of them all. At 60mm, it made this AAA replica Panerai Submersible seem like a discreet wear, featuring a studded bezel with its bulbous luminous pip at 12, designed to deflect whatever the enemy could throw at it.
The theme of nautical warfare is in the blood of Swiss made fake Panerai, and so the pairing of drab olive and nautical bronze begins to make sense. This murky shade of indecipherable green is, of course, a favorite of the armed forces, used in disruptive patterns to blend into all manners of water, mud and vegetation a soldier might find themselves taking refuge in.
Of course, bronze was and still is a mainstay of the nautical industry, its surface shielded by the same metamorphosing oxidization patterns that make it so unique. Twinned in the same Panerai replica for sale, the result is something that looks like it could belong to the kind of person who knows where to buy grenades.
But it’s not all boat hulls and camouflage; the cheap fake Panerai PAM00507 is a watch crafted to the standards expected of a modern, high-end timepiece, packing a precision- built caliber P.9002, a three-day movement with a power reserve and independent hour adjustment. Think of it like a mortar that fires Fabergé eggs.
