To the casual observer, the addition of Cheap Panerai Replica “Marina Militare” wordmark to a dial might not carry much significance – but to Paneristi die-hards, it’s a significant hat tip to the brand’s origins with Italian Navy commandos, and a subtle detail that references some of the most iconic dive watches ever made.
Technically speaking, a shot-for-shot remake of the original Marina Militare-issued Panerai Replica Watches would be rendered in Panerai’s Radiomir case, but this treatment already exists in the PAM587. However, apparently the detail was too good for just the Radiomir, as Panerai continues to ride the nü-vintage tide by replicating the 587 dial and dropping the same P.3000 manual-winding movement in a fully modernized 47mm stainless steel Luminor case that’s water resistant to 100 meters.
But all of these signatures remain an homage to the mid-century Marina Militare editions, right down to the generous 47mm case proportions and Plexiglas crystal. Obviously, Panerai Replica wasn’t unable to use sapphire – considering the exhibition caseback is fitted with sapphire – it just serves to prove that the Panerai Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days PAM673 is staying faithful, even to a fault, recognizing acrylic’s tendency to accumulate scuffs and scratches through normal wear.
But you’ve got to hand it to Best Fake Panerai Watches for fully acknowledging this by including a spare crystal that any Panerai dealer should readily be able to swap out. It’s an odd inclusion to the package, particularly when a simpler after-sales solution would be to just warranty the crystal for the life of the watch, but maybe Panerai prefers the foreshadowing?
