Replica Submersible, which is a proper dive watch with a proper rotating bezel, the Radiomir, which has a smooth bezel and no crown guard, and the emblematic Luminor, which also has a smooth bezel but is fitted with Panerai’s distinctive crown guard locking system.
It’s an excellent option for those who love Panerai Replica classic minimalist dial aesthetic but have perhaps been turned off by the weight and wrist presence of the brand’s more traditional steel offerings.
Better still, is that this is the only Luminor outside the Lab ID that offers this cool Tron-like aesthetic in the blue lume. Absent the luminous perimeter around the subsidiary seconds, skeletonized handset, and the visually striking movement architecture, this Carbotech is otherwise very similar to the Lab ID at a glance.
In keeping step with Panerai Replica Watch new strategy, it appears that the black-on-blue look is now reserved for the Carbotech watches, giving the subset of high-tech offerings their own striking visual identifier.
Panerai PAM 1661 Replica bears a slightly more standard set of chronometric expectations — hidden behind the titanium caseback is an automatic calibre with a three day power reserve, hacking seconds, and a quick-adjust hour hand, making this a great watch for anyone who regularly hops between time zones.
It’s a distinctive look, albeit one that I still really enjoy — especially given the lightweight and easy wearability.
