The design story of the Panerai PAM01616 watches made in China price actually dates back to 2017, when Panerai released the luxury concept watch. You can see the interesting use of carbon case material, as well as the introduction of more electric colors on the dial, including a version of this electric blue. Panerai has also used the colors and text on the dial in this Submersible Carbotech collection, including the same watch with the label “Marina Militare”, with green or off-white accents.
This larger model features an in-house Panerai movement, while the smaller 42mm-wide version features a Swiss-made automatic movement. Otherwise, differences in product case sizes will only provide more variety for a market that doesn’t all wear the same size watch.
Carbon is one of the most popular “new” case materials today, and it’s interesting that the Panerai super clone watches various carbon cases have very little in common. Perhaps, for this reason, brands like to name their carbon fiber cases – Panerai chose “Carbotech”. The interesting thing about carbon is that it’s not just a material for expensive watches.
The key to carbon is how it’s produced, how it’s mixed, and how it’s cut and finished. Panerai first copy watches black Carbotech material is hard, lightweight and capable of precision machining. What’s more, Carbotech has an attractive grain when cut, giving it a Damascus metal “wood grain” feel. It does look neat and is said to be a combination of carbon and PEEK polymer.
The dive case features 300m water resistance, a unidirectional rotating bezel and a domed sapphire crystal above the dial. Gents Panerai watches for sale are notoriously difficult to photograph with dial glare due to the curvature of the sapphire crystal.
The reason why Panerai doesn’t use AR coating on top of the crystal is because it can be scratched off. I get that, but the benefit of more anti-reflective coatings could be an upgrade to an already great wearing experience, and I think it’s worth more experimentation.
The PAM1616 (PAM01616) submersible replica watches for sale eBay enclosure is 47mm wide and 16.8mm thick. The shoulder straps are fairly wide at 26mm, but the whole pack fits so comfortably on the wrist that you don’t mind. Like I said, the 42mm wide version of this watch is also for those who like the look but don’t like the size. The dial is a highlight, how the classic Submersible dial is enhanced with updated hands and hour markers made of pure blue luminescent material. Dial time with small seconds and date window.
Inside the PAM1616 is the calibre P.9010 automatic movement made by Panerai. Running at 4Hz, it has a three-day power reserve and is designed to be a workhorse for a watch of this size and nothing else. The smaller 42mm wide Submersible Carbotech 1:1 replica watches swiss uses a different movement, but they are said to have the exact same performance and power reserve.
The rubber strap that comes with the PAM1616 (and apparently a Velcro and canvas strap also comes with the Submersible Carbotech replica watch) is pretty neat. It’s got a cool hybrid feel, like something from a professional diver’s watch and something you see in modern video games being worn by characters. All in all, this is a very funky piece if you want something a little different.
