Swiss Grade Panerai Launches E-Commerce with Limited-Edition Luminor Submersible Japanese Movement Replica

In the event that you still count yourself among the faithful, you may add the PAM01389 for your own collection for the purchase price of $11,000. Just don’t forget, cool guys don’t look back in the explosion.Special edition watches which are only sold in boutiques or made in limited numbers are a good way for watch brands to get lovers and watch fans excited. Exclusivity is often a large deciding factor when it comes to a watch buy, and there is no better method of producing exclusivity than by publishing a wristwatch in restricted numbers and especially at a colorway or layout that collectors yearn for. Few watch brands are as proficient at this game asPanerai Watches Australia Prices Replica is, having had a series of hits with previous special edition watches. There’s the mythical Luminor 1950 PAM 127 “Fiddy” out of 2002; and more lately, the Radiomir 1940 Marina Militare or PAM 587 from 2014. Rather, they are different variations of current models. But what makes them notable is their profound green dials. This isn’t the first time that Panerai obtained collectors excited with a simple color change. This past year, they did exactly the same with four special edition watches which came with metallic blue dials. Now, let us get in these new watches.We begin with this PAM 735 Panerai Radiomir 8 Days Titanio, which relies on the PAM 346. This comes in the classic 45mm-wide Radiomir cushion case with distinctive wire lugs, and as its name clearly states, it’s made from titanium.

OfficinePanerai Watch 000 Replica may trace its roots way back to the 1860s — and its modern collection, to the iconic pieces it developed for the Italian Navy in the 1930s — but the Florence-based, Swiss-made watch brand has officially embraced the digital age, announcing this week its first “e-commerce first” watch — the new Panerai Luminor Submersible Automatic Acciaio – 44mm, limited to 100 pieces and offered to online customers in Panerai’s e-boutique.

The new Luminor Submersible Automatic Acciaio is limited to 100 pieces, with the first 30 sold online.

The last watch of the trio, is the PAM 737Panerai Watches Vintage Replica Luminor 1950 Chrono Monopulsante 8 Days GMT Titanio, that relies on the PAM 311. This particular version has Panerai’s exceptional 44mm broad Luminor 1950 case with the iconic bridge lever apparatus and it’s made out of titanium. The PAM 737 also has a deep matte sandwich dial, and it is easily the most adorable looking of this trio because of its numerous complications.To start, it’s a mono-pusher chronograph. The small pusher on the situation in 8 o’clock activates, stops, and resets the chronograph. There’s a whole lot to see on the dial, but fortunately the indications have practical functions, so there is absolutely no superfluousness here.The movement inside the PAM 737 is the Calibre P.2004, an in house, hand-wound motion that’s 1 Panerai’s more complicated calibers. Visible through a sapphire display caseback, the motion is completed in Panerai’s specific industrial fashion and owners can definitely see the column wheel mechanism. The P.2004 also features a zero-reset platform for easy and precise setting of this time.As a lover of Panerai, I’ve mixed feelings about these 3 new pieces. I really do believe the matte green dials are extremely appealing, but I am somewhat disappointed that these watches are essentially green dial versions of existing pieces. I believe it’s a missed opportunity for Panerai to create more significant changes. As an instance, the PAM 736 Radiomir 1940 3 Days Acciaio could really do without a date screen to make it stand out more from the PAM 514 where it is based. Still, contemplating Panerai’s sizable base of dedicated devotees, I am sure these watches will have their fans.Apart from being made in limited amounts, another thing to notice about these new pieces is that they are exclusive to Panerai boutiques. The PAM 735 Panerai Radiomir 8 Days Titanio is priced at $12,100 and is limited to 250 units. The PAM 736 Panerai Radiomir 1940 3 Days Acciaio is priced at $9,200 and is limited to 300 pieces.

Manufactured at Panerai’s manufacture in Neuchâtel, the Luminor Submersible is the company’s most professional-grade divers’ watch — water-resistant to a depth of 300 meters, with a unidirectional rotating bezel for calculating dive times. (Panerai’s other main collections, the Luminor and Radiomir, while replicating the design of watches made of Italian navy frogmen of the 1930s and ’40s, are not equipped with the latter feature, regarded as a requirement on modern watches for diving.) The watch’s 44-mm case is made of AISI 316L stainless steel and features the patented, lever-like crown-locking device that secures the screw-down crown and ensures the case’s water-resistance.

The P.4000 caliber runs in a modern 4Hz and still provides 3 days of power reserve — striking specs out of a movement that’s just 3.95mm thick. It includes 203 parts and 31 jewels, but most of these are hidden by the massive plate that covers a lot of the motion. The balance wheel and escapement are stored securely by their bridge and penis, and also the micro-rotor has the Officine Panerai text and logo on it — but this is about all the eye-candy you’ll receive in the P.4000. The reddish gold variant has a gold micro-rotor and text — as it ought to, thinking about the hefty cost premium.Accuracy has been good, only a few seconds too quickly and the micro-rotor did a fine job at maintaining the movement wound. But if you wear the watch just a couple of hours per day, sooner or later, it will run out of juice and you are better off rewinding it via the crown daily. This is easy to do, since the crown is not a screw-down kind, you can wind it in any moment.One aspect of the micro-rotor — and this is something that has applied to each micro-rotor watch I’ve handled so far, irrespective of price or manufacturer point — is the noticeable noise it makes. To Panerai’s charge, it has to be stated I have heard much louder full-rotor automatics, so the P.4000 really isn’t that loud, but it’s audible in a quieter area or in a silent car stopped at a set of lights. The ticking of this movement can also be heard in case a hearing is really great — but then again, the PAM674 is far from being the loudest mechanical luxury view I have heard. It’s on the more perceptible side; though it’s the case that unnecessary and repeating noises do make me angry very quickly (confession time).

The crown-locking lever device helps ensure the Luminor Submersible’s 300-meter water resistance.

The watch’s dial is a deep blue color, with applied hour markers (including applied Arabic numerals at “12” and “6”) and hands treated with a bright green Super-LumiNova for maximum low-light (or deep underwater) legibility. Above the dial is a domed sapphire crystal that features a magnifying lens over the date window at 3 o’clock. Directly across from the date display at 9 o’clock is a small seconds subdial, also with green Super-LumiNova accents, that lets the wearer know at a quick and easy glance, even in darkness, if the watch is functioning. Inside the case is Panerai’s self-winding OP XXX caliber, providing a 50-hour power reserve after being fully wound. A set of blocky, curved lugs attach the watch to its black rubber strap, which is designed to be easily swapped out with the additional strap provided with each watch.

For the same time, more than whatever minor design tweak has spawned a newPanerai Watch 441 Replica reference, it is how the watch has been sold which is quite notable. The Panerai Luminor Submersible Automatic Acciaio PAM731, with its limited-edition blue dial, is most certainly a handsome and competent dive watch. But, as the first Panerai to be provided exclusively online, it’s representative of several pressing current issues and how the watch sector is, quite slowly, adapting to change.Panerai already sells watches on line, but the Panerai Luminor Submersible Automatic Acciaio PAM731 “E-Commerce Micro-Edition,” limited to 100 pieces, cannot be bought in shops – and that is a first for Panerai. Time and again, we have discussed the systemic issues of the watch business here on aBlogtoWatch, particularly in connection with distribution and sales, along with the watch industry’s failure to take, utilize, and adapt to the contemporary reality of internet buying. This means in relation to advertising and media as well as moving toward direct online sales rather than relying solely on third party retailers. You may find a number of articles on these and related subjects on our Watch Business subject page here.So, although the Panerai Luminor Submersible Automatic Acciaio PAM731 “E-Commerce Micro-Edition” watch may look like a single degree from the 90-degree flip that is crucial for the industry, it’s at least at the right direction. And it’s in the company of different signs that more brands are finally waking up. Examples like the Omega Speedmaster “Speedy Tuesday” limited-edition watch made for Fratellowatches.com and their #speedytuesday Instagram hashtag having sold out in four hours must at least capture the brands’ interest. The convenience, competitiveness, and comfort of the online purchasing experience for customers makes the transition into a proper online presence necessary for any watch brand that wants to survive.

The watch comes with an additional strap and a strap-changing tool.

The employed hourly indices are presently a razor’s edge thicker, the running small seconds hand at 9:00 is now a cheerful shade of blue, and the luminous application into the hands and indices is currently two-tone — the minute hand glows blue to match the bezel pip, while the rest of the markings glow green.Most especially though, the new 1389 was upgraded with Panerai’s latest automatic caliber: the P.9010, which carries the same double-barreled, 3-day power reserve as its in-house fabricated predecessor (the P.9000), but now adds an independently flexible hand hand — a feature that is becoming more and more common on many modern Panerai versions, and a boon for regular fliers.The one thing which has not changed between the 389 and the 1389, is that this is still, a very major watch at 47mm. Yes, it is much lighter than a comparable 47mm PAM00372 in stainless steel, however, the weight savings do little to decrease the view’s visual existence, which threatens to conquer at most angles. Now, like most Panerai models, the 1389 does have generously downward-turned lugs, and also a relatively (for its general size) conservative lug-to-lug dimension. But neither of those amends are quite enough to overcome the wearability constraints for all but people who’ve never skipped ‘arm day.’ That said, if you adore the undeniably cool aesthetic of the 1389, there’s always the more traditionally-sized 42mm PAM682, but you lose out on the anti-magnetic capabilities and ceramic bezel, together with the capability for the dial to double as a serving plate at a pinch. Kidding aside, it is apparent that the remainder of the sector has been reacting to a return to smaller dimensions — 43mm seems to be the newest 42, down from the 45 and 47mm watches that once dominated Panerai’s modern collection. That’s why the other 47mm watch in 2017 actually feels a little dated right from the gate — despite its undeniably trendy, and timeless aesthetic. Trends-be-damned though, many diehard Paneristi still would not have it any other way — which is likely why the brand continues to fly the flag as one of the last holdouts of the decade’s big watch tendency.

Available online now at www.panerai.com, the Panerai Luminor Submersible Acciaio – 44 mm (Ref. PAM00731) is priced at $7,200. After the first 30 pieces are sold online, Panerai says, remaining orders will be taken over the phone at 877-726-3724.
