In 1940, Panerai Replica presents a new version of the Radiomir, with reinforced lugs and a cushion-shaped case made with edges that are more pronounced on the side – a shape that will later become the brand’s hallmark. Today’s four new watches are deeply inspired by this 1940 model, its typical shape and the military roots that created the legend behind Panerai.
These new green Panerai Radiomir Replica Watches are based on the 1940 model, not the inaugural watch with wired lugs. It thus features a more solid cushion-shaped case with integrated lugs – but not the trademarked crown protection device, which is the apanage of the Luminor models.
The first model in this 2019 green-themed sub-collection is a classic time-only stainless steel High Quality Panerai Replica watch, based on the 45mm Radiomir 1940 model. The PAM00995 has the typical 1940 case with fully polished steel surfaces and a 100m water resistance. It is complemented by a “Ponte Vecchio” calf leather strap in dark brown – additional canvas strap in beige included.
The dial is treated in matte military green with sandwich construction, with hands gold plated and beige luminous material. The display is quite simple, with hours-minutes in the centre and a small seconds at 9 o’clock. Powering the Best Panerai Radiomir 45mm PAM00995 Replica is the automatic in-house P.4000 calibre, a relatively thin movement with micro-rotor visible through the sapphire caseback, and providing 3 days of power reserve.
