Let’s get straight to the point: the all-new Panerai Luminor California 8 Days DLC 44mm PAM00779 packaged everything that Panerai could possibly do in a watch, almost gimmicky level… But honestly, it just works! It has a strong, unique and masculine appearance, making a perfect fusion of classic Panerai replica watches. This PAM00779 is MONOCHROME to us, the brand’s most interesting new watch of late – and even its prices are quite competitive. Overview.
For its latest version, Panerai is in some ways for a simple recipe. The new Panerai Luminor California 8 Days DLC 44mm PAM00779 is really the focus of Panerai’s signature product: 44mm Luminor case, bridge bar device on the crown, DLC coated titanium case, California dial with time display, blue pointer, power reserve movement for 8 Days… They even added a cool new bund cuff. It can be a total mess, it can be a proper gimmick, but in the end, the new PAM00779 is clearly very enjoyable. The base of this PAM00779 is the practical Luminor housing, which measures 44mm (middle, almost wearable) in cheap Panerai replica watches, a lightweight, wear-resistant titanium alloy. To give the watch a more modern and precious feel, the watch case is painted with DLC, with uniform carbon base, making the metal appearance uniform, lustrous and anthracite finish, higher hardness, scratch resistance and corrosion resistance.
As part of the Luminor series, the California 8 Days DLC 44mm PAM00779 uses the iconic bridge rod device to protect the upper chain crown. The part is also coated with DLC, which helps the watch’s waterproof performance of 300 meters. Panerai Replica Swiss Movement moves to the band, bringing something new that doesn’t help the watch feel smaller on the wrist, but actually fits right into the military inspiration: the so-called “bund” band. While the classic style of the watch uses a two-piece strap, is made of raw brown leather and paired with beige stitching (the Panerai classic), you can also use the included cuff attachment – originally designed for military use to protect the back watch from contact with the skin. There is also a black rubber band in the box.
The dial at PAM00779 is also very traditional for the best fake Panerai watch, based on the iconic “California” design. These dials were originally used by Panerai for its earliest military creations, combining the baton timing with Roman and Arabic numerals. All have a tritium color SuperLuminova to enhance the retro/military look of the watch. PAM00779 is a watch with simple hands (hours and minutes), usually used to dial in California – such as PAM00629 – and both hands are hot blue.
The PAM00779 titanium case has an 8 day power storage movement built in and an internal movement P.5000. Again, the choice has to do with the brand’s military past, when Italian frogmen’s swiss Panerai replica watch were outfitted with large Angelus eight-day movements. The p.5000 movement is a modern engine with two main spring boxes and a reliable (fairly simple) concept. The movement hidden under the ordinary base cover is not visible.
