The Italian frogmen of the 1940s with their bold, time-only diving tool watches strapped securely to the wrist. Recently, Panerai has expanded its chronograph range to include the Popular Panerai Luminor Chrono Replica collection, with a new automatic movement and a range of dial colors.
Now, in the wildly popular Luminor replica collection, Panerai has a modern chronograph collection for everyone. The collection consists of four watches, three of which have stainless steel cases, while Panerai’s proprietary Goldtech offers a single model.
The series has a case diameter of 44 mm and lug-to-lug dimensions of 53.8 mm, with a stainless steel case thickness of 15.6 mm and a Goldtech case thickness of 15.1 mm.
The right side of the case also features the iconic Cheap Panerai Replica crown protector, which ensures that the Goldtech model is water-resistant to 50m, while the steel model is water-resistant to 100m. Panerai’s thoughtful design places the chronograph buttons on the left side of the case, breaking the norm and adding a sense of balance to the overall visual impression.
Blue and gold almost always look great together, and that’s certainly the case here. The three stainless steel models are available in your choice of a black or white dial with a leather strap, or if you want a stainless steel bracelet, there is another stunning blue dial option.
All four dials feature the same double-sub-dial layout, possibly a reference to the original Mare Nostrum, with a tachymeter scale that moves around the circumference of the High Quality Panerai Replica Watch dial. The subdials drop slightly from the rest of the dial, in line with the skeletonised sandwich hour markers filled with luminous paint.
Powering the new collection is the Cheap Panerai Replica P.9200 calibre, newly developed and slightly different from the flyback chronograph offerings that Panerai has focused on in recent years. It features a highly reliable Glucydur balance wheel that operates at 28,800vph and offers a 42-hour power reserve.
As mentioned earlier, the collection is usually paired with a luxurious alligator strap secured with a bold pin buckle. The Replica Watches China stainless steel reference with the blue dial is paired with a matching stainless steel bracelet with links inspired by the Luminor crown protector and offers a more wear-resistant option.
It has a whole lot of wrist presence, attractive finishes to the case, dial and movement, and it has an enticing symmetry thanks to the pushers opposite the crown.
Of course, it’s unlikely to slip off the cuff of a dress shirt, but if you’re adding a best replica watch in the world to your collection, that’s probably not how you wear your Luminor Chrono.
