The military looking large case, the large and luminous hour markers and the specific crown lock system were the most important ingredients for me to buy one myself. Looking at this Panerai Luminor Marina 8 Days replica 44 mm watch,I wondered what exactly changed over the years. The watch has the same appeal to me except now it has an in-house developed movement and the dial has this extra ‘notification’ on the dial.
Turning the Panerai Luminor 8 Days replica 44 mm watch around, I started to look for a power reserve indicator, but did not find it. I guess that the power reserve is 8 days and you just have to keep hold of when it is about to run out of energy. However – and to be honest – I have the habit of winding a watch every day before putting it on my wrist, so I am sure that the watch is wound properly when wearing it. When you don’t do this every day or every other day, there is nothing to worry about with this replica watch as it two barrels to make sure it will have a full 8 days of energy.
The Panerai Luminor Marina 8 Days 44 mm replica watch comes on a thick leather strap with a beautiful polished large buckle, also known as the Pre-Vendome buckle. Between the re-birth of this brand in 1993 and 1997, so before Panerai was owned by the Vendome Group. In that period of time, Panerai replica watches were delivered with this large buckle similar to the one on our photos. After 1997, there was a long period in which Panerai watches had a more ‘modest’ buckle on their straps.
The strap and buckle of the Panerai Luminor Marina 8 Days 44 mm replica watch are using screws to be kept in place. With the small screw driver that comes with each Panerai replica watches you are perfectly able to change the straps yourself. If you want to make sure not to damage either the case or buckle when changing it, make sure to use a bit of Scotch tape to protect the case around the hole. This way, if you lose control over the small screw driver and accidentally hit a part of the case, the tape will be there to protect it from getting scratched. A polished surface like the side of the case will show scratches in a pretty bad way.
Actually,the Panerai Luminor Marina 8 Days 44 mm replica watch is one of the nicest straps I have worn in a long time on a watch. The softness of the strap is unbelievable and doesn’t feel at all as a thick and inflexible strap. You have to love the cracked leather look on this strap otherwise you will bothered by it. I loved wearing this soft strap Panerai Luminor Marina 8-Days replica watch.I am a fairly tall guy so this watch really suits me quite well with its thick case that measures 44mm in diameter.
