As long as I still watch my watch, I like Panerai’s aesthetics. From Radiomir’s svelte series to Luminor’s boyish charm and theme-themed submersibles, I have a Panerai Replica Watches vibe soft spot that can be instantly identified. Unfortunately, the Panerai watch is, in general, quite large. Regardless of form or heritage, many Panerai’s most interesting designs are 44mm or larger, which is too much for my watch.
For example, Luminor submersibles are easy to find in 44mm and 47mm sizes, and although I think they are very cool watches, I have tried and found them too big for my taste and wrist. Earlier this year, in an unexpected shift in the SIHH, Cheap Panerai Replica Watches announced a new 42mm submersible that provides the same cuddly and thick shape but with a smaller wrist. Its full name is the Luminor submersible, which was automatically Acciaio 42mm (PAM00682), a 42mm submersible, three days in 1950. Dude, 2mm is really bad.
As a former enthusiast of diving design, the appeal of a small version is undeniable. I still remember when I picked it up on the table in Geneva, my face was smiling – it was a submersible. And it fits well! Diehard Panerai’s fans may not care much about this casual expression of their beloved rough and rolling submersible, but from the moment I tried it I was on board.
Simply put, the PAM 682 is an easier to understand expression of the Swiss Panerai Watches For Sale diving watch design, and the main selling point here is the smaller size. In brushed steel and 42mm wide (without crown and protection), 14.5mm thick, and 51mm lug to lug, PAM 682 will fit a wide range of wrists. For reference, it is not the same as Seiko SRP777 (a wider but shorter lug to lug, sharing a similar overall footprint). Comfort also benefits from Panerai’s 1950s-style lug design, which has a downwardly sloping lug and exits from a lower position (close to the wrist).
In my opinion, the proportion of PAM 682 is very good. The dialing is balanced, not too busy, there is a large glow tag, a good integration and matching date is shown at 3, and a bright blue pointer at the seconds at 9 o’clock. Dialing texts are always kept within reasonable use, and everything is combined to make a very clear and obvious Best Panerai Replica Watches time display. Although the hands may mix with the dial, this is mainly a by-product effect of reducing photo reflex. In daily use, the bristles of the hands form a sharp contrast with the flat black dial.
Like most Panerai models without timekeeping, the 42mm submersible does not have a full minute track, relying only on the main time stamp as a reference. My hypothesis is that this is a design element. If you are proficient in Fake Panerai Watches, it will feel normal, but it may confuse people who are attracted to smaller sizes. In setting the time, I really just missed the time mark, after which I barely noticed their omission. In general, it gave me a bolder and more powerful look. I am grateful. This is a watch that doesn’t require any fuss. The dial will definitely leave a deep impression.
What I noticed during the production of these photos is that the border of this example is not perfectly aligned with the dial. In normal use, I didn’t notice the alignment, but once I saw it in the photo it was hard to be wrong. The general position of the border mark appears to be at the point, but the border mark may only have a third of the distance between the click points. Matching the situation in the photos I took in SIHH, it is clear that this particular PAM 682 is a pre-production prototype rather than the final retail product. To be sure, I compared it to the model of my local fashion store. The watch was correct.
In addition to alignment, the border is excellent in use. Provides 60 clicks and a very compact mechanical action, well weighted and sounds great. As a 60-click mechanism, perfect alignment is difficult, but at this price point, it does not have much demand.
Despite the initial problems, PAM 682 did get the details from Panerai’s quality and interesting niche model. In front and behind there is sapphire crystal, 3 meters waterproof, and Luminor’s iconic lever crown protection, 42mm submersible covers all Panerai base. An interesting element that may not be known outside the Panerai community is the rapid change of the watchband. Panerai, including those that used the 1950 situation, PAM 682 has a small button at the bottom of each crown-side lug.
When replacing a new belt, you can use a pusher tool to press this button, and the other pusher applies light pressure to the lever through the protruding hole in the drill hole, easily releasing the lever with minimal force. The rod itself has a small indentation on the locking side, which is protected by the lug mechanism. This system is smart, easy to use, and can prevent serious scratches caused by digging holes around the lugs with traditional spring tools. Panerai fans like to change the belt. This system makes it simple and easy, and has the added benefit of using any conventional belt.
Regarding the subject of the belt, the 42mm submersible is good in any respect. Its total weight is 132 grams, including a 22 mm black rubber band (natural rubber), suitable for diving, looks great, and matches the random versatility of the diving shape. If you’re bored, the 682 works well on vintage leather, embellished on a crocodile leather strap (the classic Panerai look), and actually dressed and looks great on NATO (especially gray).
The 682 uses Panarei’s p9010 caliber, which is common in many models, including the similarly-sized PAM 1523 and 47mm dive models (to name just a few). The p9010 is an internal design that is consistent with Panerai’s production status after the introduction of p2002 in 2005.
My favorite feature of the p9010 is that time is a jump, so whether you are traveling or just want to take a quick photo on Instagram, you can easily adjust your time without stopping the move. This seems to be a trivial feature, but every time I have a table with a jump, I really appreciate its practicality and flexibility. Just like the protection of the border and the crown, the Crown’s function feels good, it has a huge wheel-shaped crown, provides a powerful time setting interface and convenient manual winding.
All the cards on the table, I like this watch. For me, it’s the same size. Although the small version of the watch is known for its large size, it is somewhat bizarre in its appeal, of course, I think it is very good on the watch. In addition, I think that the small submersible is Panerai’s smart move because the audience is most likely to find the attractiveness of PAM 682, the same situation as me; this is a fan of Panerai aesthetics, but not the size.
This is far from Panerai’s first 42mm model, but it is the first 42mm Luminor 1950 submersible, almost like a defender 90. Its size is an asset that will not diminish or erode the effects of larger models and Attractive. People tend to like to choose. This is a choice that may give Panerai some new perspectives.
Like most modern Panerai watches, the PAM 682 is definitely not cheap. This watch is priced at $ 8,700, is definitely a luxury, but it is an undeniably expensive watch. Any watch that is around $9000 must be ready to compete with the Rolex Submariner’s “Rolex Submariner Date”. Worthy of praise, I think PAM 682 is equally attractive, assuming you tap Panerai’s aesthetics. If this is the case, the 42mm submersible’s niche look and easier-to-follow size will allow you to easily and comfortably wear the classic Panerai fare and enjoy it.
