What We Know
If you’re not a fan of Panerai replica watches for sale, you can probably go ahead and read something else, because Panerai is doing what Panerai does with the new Radiomir Otto Giorni. If you are a fan, then this release will be catnip.
Here we have a steel Radiomir case, eight-day hand-wound movement, with a few new tweaks to keep the vintage vibe strong – Panerai’s gonna Panerai.
The new luxury UK fake Panerai Radiomir Otto Giorni watches (that’s “eight days” in Italian) PAM 01347 and PAM 01348 are about what you’d expect from a modern Panerai Radiomir, with a few aesthetic flourishes. The 45mm case of each is made of Panerai’s eSteel, which Panerai says is produced from recycled steel. But the case is treated to give it a weathered, vintage feel, created using PVD.
Both dials feature a gradient that transitions from light at the center to darker at the edges – brown in the case of the PAM 01347 and blue in the PAM 01348. The rest of the dial is familiar: small seconds at 9 o’clock, with the text “8 Giorni Brevettato” (“8 days patented”) counterbalancing that subdial at 3 o’clock. The sandwich dial uses Super-Luminova, with large Arabic numerals at 12 and 6 o’clock.
The Panerai caliber P.5000 is visible through a sapphire caseback. As we’ve written about the movement before, it’s an impressive, sturdy caliber with a free-sprung, adjustable balance mass. No, it doesn’t have the spectacular cosmetics of other in-house calibers, but that’s not why you come to top Panerai replica watches. You come for the robust, hand-wound, eight-day power reserve, an homage to the Panerai of old, which used eight-day movements from Angelus among others.
These two new AAA copy watches offer variations on the existing eight-day Radiomirs in the catalog, but unlike some of the others, it’ll only be available at Panerai boutiques around the world.
What We Think
Panerai is at its best when it leans into being Panerai for all the Paneraistis still out there (to be clear, there are many). The new PAM 01347 and PAM 01348 are worthy tributes to the nearly 90-year legacy of the Swiss movements replica Panerai Radiomir watches.
Panerai’s recycled eSteel is a cool initiative, something I’d like to see from more brands. Treating the cases with PVD to give this pair of Radiomirs a vintage, distressed look is also cool, giving a new Panerai the beat-up look that it feels like every Panerai should have. But, not all of us have been wearing Panerai since 1992 like Sly Stallone, when the brand first started making commercial cheap super clone watches. And that’s not to mention Radiomirs from the pre-commercial years, when these beasts were only made for the military. But hey, we’re also not all John Goldberger.
The gradient dials look well executed too; the brown dial, in particular, seems to fit with 2023 Panerai replica watches’ retro motif (squint and it even feels a bit like the Radiomir from Goldberger’s Talking Watches 2). Pair each with their matching calf-skin strap and contrasting stitching, and it seems we’ve got a hit on our hands that at least a few Panerai lovers will be heading out to their local boutique to check out in person, and I can’t blame them. There’s a reason the Italian Navy ordered the first Radiomir prototype in 1935 and enthusiasts everywhere continue to wear it today. There’s nothing like 1:1 Panerai fake watches online.
