Panerai on growing its popular Radiomir 1940 collection. There are 4 new GMT models and, as is expected with Panerai, they all retain the classic and bold look from the brand. The 1940 line is essentially a hybrid combination of the Radiomir and Luminor watches, and is popular amongst Paneristi for this reason. New this year are four models featuring the GMT complication. These would also be the first Panerai Replica Watches Radiomir 1940 models to feature the GMT complication that aren’t Special Edition pieces – Panerai-speak for limited edition watches.
All four Panerai Radiomir 1940 3 Days GMT Automatic Acciaio and Radiomir 1940 3 Days GMT Power Reserve Automatic Acciaio watches have a 72-hour power reserve and are water resistant to 100 meters. The water resistance should certainly at least be that high, since the 1940 line was actually named after the Italian Navy commandos around the year 1940. Another Panerai Replica tradition the brand stuck to was focusing on legibility, as the GMT hand is nice and lumed. I like how they provided a GMT hand option that is completely lumed and one that has all but the arrow in black.
The fit and finish on all four of the Best Panerai Replica Review is exactly what you would expect from Panerai, and the steel pieces kind of hit the sweet spot from the brand at 45mm. A lot of people say 42mm is too small and 47mm is just too large – again, Panerai seems to have gotten it just right with the sizing. The leather straps in black or brown both are high-quality and are in line with what you would expect when paying this kind of money. On the wrist, the watches feel comfortable and have a real presence, like most Panerai watches.
Personally, I find the size of 42mm watches to be a sweet spot, and I’m really glad Best Panerai Replica Review chose to bring the white dial to a watch as broadly appealing and wearable as this Radiomir 1940 3 Days Automatic Acciaio. I also appreciate that it’s just under 11mm high on the wrist, giving it presence without being blocky. The familiar cushion-shaped case is complete with off-center small seconds dial at 9 o’clock and numeric indicators for the hours.Scanning the circumference of the dial almost makes it look like the 12, 3, and 6 o’clock indicators are popping out as if viewing from a magnifying glass. Fortunately, legibility on the dial is not affected by using the white dial and it’s easy to read.
One reason why fans of Panerai get hooked on the brand is due to the distinctive and unmistakable styling that’s shared by the Luminor and Radiomir lines, as well as the Luminor 1950 and Radiomir 1940 lines. The dark dial is definitely a part of the “Panerai look” and, as I mentioned before, I find it unlikely that someone will get this as their first Panerai Replica Swiss Movement. Rather, it’ll probably add to a collection. Then again, it could draw in buyers who were on the fence but prefer the white dial a lot more. This is when you know the design is successful; it’s familiar, yet unique to the brand’s aesthetic, but still has a wide appeal to the larger watch buying community.
The watch comes on an untreated leather strap with contrast stitching, which looks great and has a handsome quality to it. I really like that the stitching just about matches the brown/beige color of the hands and hour dots. Moving on to the case, the word acciaio is Italian for “steel,” which the watch case looks great in. On the crown you’ll find the signature “OP” logo which will be familiar to anyone who has a seen a Panerai. And, naturally, as Fake Panerai Watches used to make dive watches made for the Italian Navy, water resistance is a respectable 100 meters.
The Panerai Radiomir 1940 3 Days Automatic Acciaio is a great-looking white-dial watch that will likely please fans of the brand, and maybe even lure in a few new people to the brand.
