HIGH QUALITY REPLICA PANERAI – LUMINOR DUE 3 DAYS (PAM00676 & PAM00677) REVIEW
Officine Panerai brings Italian style and Swiss expertise together. Panerai’s Luminor Due 3 Days collection treats its fans to a new take on its signature Luminor, which has remained true to the original model’s design but given it modern functions with a slimmer case.
Inspired by the 1950s and a model made for the Italian Navy between the 1930s and 50s, the replica Luminor Due 3 Days has all the Luminor’s signature features such as the reliable cushion-shape case, large dial rimmed by a slim bezel, integrated lugs and the bridge system that keeps the crown waterproof with a lever protecting it from shocks.
The 42mm fake Luminor Due 3 Days case is just 10.5mm thick making it the slimmest Luminor case ever which comes in stainless steel (PAM00676) or stylish polished rose gold (PAM00677).
Sapphire crystal protects the traditional low-key Panerai dial adorned with baton-shaped markers and a small seconds counter at 9. The dial’s sandwich structure (black on steel and anthracite grey on gold) makes the time easy to read and highlighted by the sunburst satin finish.
You can watch the manual wind P.1000 calibre through the fake Luminor Due 3 Days’s transparent case back. This is the first time the large satin-finish bridge protecting half the calibre’s surface has been openworked to reveal the movement’s parts and two barrels fuelling the 3-day power reserve.
The balance wheel in both pieces (28,800 vph) is held in place by a double-support bridge providing improved safety and stability. The movement also features a system which stops the balance wheel and resets the seconds hand when setting the time so the watch is perfectly in sync with a reference signal.
The steel (PAM00676) Luminor Due 3 Days comes with a black alligator strap and the rose gold version (PAM00677) comes with a pale blue alligator strap. Both are waterproof to depths of 30m.
