You might think that all the Panerais are exactly the same. Well, they all share several common features and design codes. However, inside the catalog of the Italian Officine, we have to differentiate 4 collections: the Radiomir with its wired-loop attachments, the Radiomir 1940 with its lugs integrated to the case, the classical Luminor known as the modern interpretation and the Luminor 1950 replica watch, the vintage-inspired editions of the Luminor.
Typical characteristics of this Swiss-made, Italian-designed brand include a satin-finished and pillow-shaped case with a polished bezel, a protective stirrup with a lever used to press the crown firmly into the case, and a distinctively styled dial with large Arabic numerals and hour indices. The Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days GMT replica pam00321 watch is a faithful interpretation of the original Panerai Luminor model, which debuted in 1950 as a watch for Italian Navy divers. but it isn’t essentially different from other Panerai replica watches.
Furthermore, the Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days GMT Power Reserve replica pam00321 watch does boast several details that distinguish it from other Panerai watches. The color of the lettering on the date disk isn’t pure white, but slightly beige. Also, we were pleased to note that the 3 Days replica watch makes do without the magnifying lens found above the date displays of some other Panerai watches. Though this model has a variety of functions, its dial doesn’t look cluttered: the hand for the second time zone can be concealed under the hour hand for the local time, and the power-reserve display is positioned out of sight on the back. The crystals above the dials in other members of this collection are highly domed, but this one is only slightly curved, a difference that we appreciated.
The sandwich-style dial of the pam00321 Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Power Reserve Replica GMT watch, another Panerai trademark, is as beautiful as ever, with an underlying layer of glow-in-the-dark Super-LumiNova topped by an opaque dial pierced with apertures for the numerals and indices that mark the hours. This gives the Panerai Luminor 1950 replica watch greater depth, keeps it faithful to its historic predecessors, and also explains the open, “stencil” design of the digits 6 and 9. This type of architecture guarantees that the numerals and indices glow uncommonly bright, which makes this watch very legible in the dark.
In all other respects, however, the case is excellently crafted. It also scores points for its quick-change system for the strap lugs. A special tool, delivered with the Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days GMT replica watch,can be used to press a button on the underside of each lug, making it easy to push out the crosspiece, remove the leather strap and install the alternate rubber one that is also included.
