The popular fake Panerai watches created for the Italian Navy were made of austenitic stainless steel, a reliable material that was also resistant to the extreme environmental conditions in which the commandos operated. AISI 316L, a specification of the American Iron and Steel Institute, is an austenitic stainless steel alloy with a chromium content of 16–18%, 11–14% nickel and 2–3% molybdenum.
Officine Panerai uses the low-carbon variant of this alloy: the lower carbon content of the steel improves its welding qualities where the metal’s thickness is 6mm or less. The excellent technical qualities of this material make it an essential element of every new replica Officine Panerai collection.
The P.9000 calibre, created entirely by Officine Panerai and used in a series of charming copy Panerai Luminor 1950 and Radiomir models, is fitted with various functions: it is an automatic calibre with a 3-day power reserve and a unique technical design which makes these movements immediately recognizable.
The calibre has a diameter of 13 3/4 lignes and numerous features: two barrels which guarantee 72 hours of power reserve; a single piece rotor which winds by moving in both directions thanks to an automatic ratchet device; a balance wheel with adjusting screws, oscillating at a frequency of 4 Hz. To house this movement, a specially made version of the Luminor 1950 case has been designed, keeping the proportions of the original but featuring a slightly less convex sapphire crystal which only barely protrudes from the bezel.
IN 2010, OFFICINE PANERAI INTRODUCED PANERAI COMPOSITE, a synthetic ceramic created by the electrochemical process of ceramization of aluminium. Highly resistant and extremely light, Panerai Composite combines optimal technical characteristics and a sporty elegance. This material is the result of research in the field of innovative materials and represents the forefront of a technical evolution that is of fundamental importance for the best replica Panerai.
The high-quality copy Panerai Radiomir Composite 3 Days – 47 mm has a cushion-shaped, brown, Panerai Composite case that houses a dial of the same colour enhanced by the small seconds dial at 9 o’clock and the engraving ‘Radiomir Panerai’. The in-house P.3000 hand-wound calibre can be admired through the large burnished sapphire case-back of the Radiomir Composite 3 Days.
This calibre has a 3-day power reserve thanks to two barrels connected in series. It has a 16½ lignes diameter, large brush-finished bridges with anglage (chamfering) and a variable inertia 13.2 mm balance wheel, which oscillates at a frequency of 3 Hz. The P.3000 calibre also has a device enabling the hour hand to be set in jumps of one hour, so that adjustment does not interfere with the movement of the minute hand or the running of the watch.
Swiss fake Panerai watches are produced to very high standards of quality. It is worth remembering that the mechanical parts run 24 hours a day when used, so the watch must undergo regular maintenance to ensure long life and good operation.
The perfect copy Panerai Radiomir 1940 3 Days Ceramica – 48mm has a strongly technical appearance of great aesthetic impact, thanks to the use of a matt black ceramic, synthesised from Zirconium Oxide.The fascination of the watch is enhanced by its black dial with its sandwich structure. The dot and bar hour markers contribute to its minimalist design of great simplicity and clarity. The overall modernism of the dial design is elegantly set off by the ecru colour of the Super-LumiNova® used to make the markers luminous, and by the image in relief of the Siluro a Lenta Corsa.The P.3000 hand-wound movement, entirely created in the Panerai manufacture in Neuchâtel, can be admired through a large polished sapphire crystal window in the back of the case.
The newly Panerai fake watches Radiomir 1940 3 Days Ceramica (PAM00577) are water-resistant to 10 bar (a depth of about 100 metres) and it is supplied with a strap of brown untreated leather, with contrasting hand-sewing, and closed by a trapezoidal buckle. Like the case back, the buckle is made of titanium for its non-allergenic properties and it has a DLC (diamond-like carbon) coating matching the colour of the case.
