We have not discussed Panerai replica watches for a long time, because the factory that made the best Panerai replicas before is closed now, you know the factory I am talking about, yes, it is VS. Since the close of VS, no other factories have made replicas of Panerai watches, this is a very bad thing.
We have waited for so long, the good news is that a factory can make some Panerai replica watches with manual winding movement, that is HW factory. This factory now only makes several Panerai watches, and all of them are with manual winding movement, hope they can make more Panerai replica watches in future.
Today, I want to talk about the PAM 111 replica from HW factory. About the replica of Panerai PAM 111, the best one was made by Noob before, its version came to be V12, unfortunately Noob was closed, we also do not know if they can come back to this business. So if you want a replica of PAM 111, the only option is to buy this one from HW factory. But how is its quality?
HW factory sells PAM 111 at the same price as that of Noob V12, but I can not compare the quality between them, because there is nowhere to get a V12 edition of Noob PAM 111. However, from previous pictures of Noob, I found the movement is different, I mean, absolutely Noob PAM 111 uses better movement. Perhaps the power reserve of PAM 111 from HW factory has the same power reserve capacity as Noob V12 PAM 111, but if you check the decoration on movement plate and the jewels color, you will find the clone ETA 6497 on Noob version is much better, and is absolutely closer to genuine.
I do not know why HW factory did not make the movement decoration more beautiful, because you already made a lot of clone ETA 6497 movements and are ready to install in your Panerai PAM 111, you only need to do a little extra work to make this watch more perfect, but you did not do it, so many customers choose to wait until HW factory is willing to improve the movement decoration next time.
Actually other details on dial and case finish, they are very close to the quality level of Noob PAM 111, and HW uses a brown leather strap on the PAM 111, not rubber band, I love it with a leather strap more. In a word, this is a very good PAM 111, if there are 10 points, I will give it a 7.
By the way, PAM 915, PAM 005, PAM 1084, PAM 000, PAM 1085, PAM 416M, PAM 417M, PAM 634, PAM 774, PAM 777 from HW factory are in stock.
Always as popular as Rolex, Panerai is a brand that is loved by more and more young people. In recent two years, it seems like Panerai slightly changed their watch style and unveiled some models that are in smaller dimension, to accept more customers in different ages and wrist size. I believe their strategy has succeeded, you can also get this conclusion from the sales of Panerai replica watches in our market, in the following top ten list, a lot of them were just released within two years, and I hope you can find your ideal Panerai replica watch from this list.
1.VSF PAM 441
I introduced this Panerai watch in another top ten list before, while after two years, PAM 441 is still one of the best-selling replica Panerai watches. If you are looking for a ceramic Panerai, I recommend PAM 441 and PAM 438, both are made by VS factory. In December, 2020, XF also released PAM 441, but they finally decided to sell it at a big discount, I think the main reason is that they are not able to compete with VSF. PAM 441 has a see-through crystal back, so it is very important to make the movement look nice, while this Super Clone P.9001 from VS factory is the best clone P.9001 movement in the market, you don’t even have to worry that your friends see the movement and find it is a replica, it won’t happen.
2.VSF PAM 1441
Very similar to PAM 441, a brother model, while you can notice there are several difference on the dial, case back and movement. Although PAM 1441 replica was released by VS factory in December, it was sold very well, just like its brother PAM 441. Many people bought PAM 1441 because the solid case back seems to be more acceptable to them, well, that does not mean the movement inside PAM 1441 replica is not good, the watch is equipped with VSF’s Super Clone P.9010, you can not find big flaws even you open the back to check.
3.VSF PAM 1312
It is the first Panerai replica watch I recommend if you are looking for a stainless steel model. PAM 1312 has a really nice outlook, stainless steel case, black dial and black leather strap, this combination makes the watch fulfill most people’s aesthetic principles. PAM 1312 is a brother model of PAM 312, both are good replicas from VS factory and are sold very well in our market. PAM 1312 features a solid case back, with a Super Clone P.9010 movement inside, VS factory can ship a free white rubber band with this watch.
4.VSF Submersible Carbotech PAM 1616
PAM 1616 deserves this position, it is from Panerai’s 47m Submersible line, although in big size, but VS factory makes the replica with real forged carbon material, the watch feels very light even the case thickness is up to 17mm. Dial is attractive, it uses fresh blue color on hands and hour markers, coupled with the new-style hour and minute hands, the entire watch looks younger than previous Submersible watches. The replica is equipped with VSF’s iconic Super Clone P.9000 movement, which is considered to be the best clone P series movement with absolutely high stability.
5.VSF Submersible Carbotech PAM 960
In outlook, it is very similar to PAM 1616, PAM 960 is another Submersible replica watch that is sold well in 2020. Compared with PAM 1616, PAM 960 is only 42mm in case diameter, and 14.5 mm in thickness, much smaller now, it seems to be more acceptable to most people, after all they do not have such a big wrist.
6.VSF PAM 1661
It is a Panerai watch that looks very cool. The replica is also made with sold forged carbon by VS factory, so are the crown bridge and lugs. PAM 1661 is one of Luminor models that have a forged carbon case, it has a 44mm case diameter and is measured to be 18.5mm in thickness, which is much thicker than some Submersible watches, I do not know why VS factory has to build it so thick, it may affect the comfort of wearing. However, the color usage on dial and nylon strap strikes my eyes, which also makes this Luminor carbon watch looks more modern. There are four selling points on this replica, forged carbon case, strong lume light on dial, top quality movement and interchangable strap.
7.XF PAM 127
One or two years ago, this Panerai watch should rank top five, there were also a lot of factories that have produced replica PAM 127, including Noob, ZF and XF, however, in 2020, you can not get a PAM 127 replica from these factories above, it was out of stock. In the second half year of 2020, XF brought it back to us, we are very happy, because PAM 127 really has a big amount of need in our market.
8.VSF Submersible Bronzo PAM 968
Compared with PAM 382, this bronze Panerai PAM 968 looks more uniform in style, bronze case to match brown ceramic bezel and brown dial with brown leather strap, it looks perfect in color combination. The replica watch features a see-through crystal back, with a Super Clone P.9010 automatic movement inside, VS factory also offers one free pair of green rubber straps for this watch.
9.Noob PAM 111 V11
You can not even imagine how popular this watch is when it was just released in our market, and now the latest version comes to V11, we can see there are still a big amount of need for this replica watch. When Noob firstly launched this replica several years ago, it really shocked us and was a star product at that time. If you are still looking for a handwound Panerai replica watch, I think PAM 111 is still the best choice, seeing from the crystal back, the ETA 6497 movement looks really nice, having been updated for years, it is the best clone ETA 6497.
10.VSF PAM 688
It is a replica Panerai watch which VS factory published in 2017, however, it is still one of the best sellers. From Luminor GMT line, PAM 688 is 42mm in case diameter, this size is acceptable to more people. Different from other PAMs that are usually with black dial and black leather strap, PAM 688 is entirely in blue color, with hands in rose gold tone. The polishing on round bezel is highly contrast with the brushing on crown bridge. The most important is the GMT hand works the same ways as genuine watch. Now, the latest version of this PAM 688 replica comes to V2.
Besides these watches above, I think there will be a top ten list in the heart of every one, a lot of other Panerai replica watches are also sold very well, but we need to admit that the best ones are almost produced by VS factory. If you are interested in any PAM above, please contact me, I can also send you all Panerai models that are currently available in our market.
Now, Chinese New Year holiday is over, every watch factory has already back to work, maybe there are too many orders waiting to be processed by the factory, they released their stocks very slow, and some special models like tourbillon watches from JB and ZF V3 forged carbon Richard Mille, I am not sure for how long to wait, maybe one or two months. But for most popular models like Submariner from Noob and VS, Nautilus from PPF, Panerai from VS, Datejust from GM, I can get them for you within two days. Now, the Covid-19 is still very bad in the United States and most European countries, I hope you guys can stay safe at home, health is the most important thing, hope you are doing fine every day.
Today, the replica watch I am going to introduce is a Panerai from VS factory. PAM 1025, it is a new replica that was just published in December 2020. PAM 1025 is a stainless steel Panerai watch, I like Panerai, it is one of my favorite watches, among all PAMs, I think the stainless steel models are most classic, for example, PAM 312, PAM 1312, they look elegant. While for this PAM 1025, the band is different, it is not leather on the outside but nylon, I do not like this style.
44mm case is brushed, which is in high contrast with the round and smooth bezel that is polished. Case thickness is 16mm, I do not know how thick the genuine is, maybe the replica is a little thicker, but it does not matter, it is still a top quality watch that is 1:1 replicated.
About the movement, it is VS factory’s Super Clone P.9010. I think this movement is one of the best movements which VS factory has developed. There are many super clone movements in our market, for example, Super Clone P.9000 from VS, Super Clone 3135 from Noob, Super Clone 4130 from Noob. Do you really know the meaning of the two words “Super Clone”? I think it has two meanings, first, it says that the watch is a super clone. Seconds, it means the movement is best ever made, independently developed by the factory, every component of is replicated according to real movement and then assembled separately by watch master, not based on any Chinese or Japanese movement. So, about this movement used in PAM 1025, it is really a super power, the part that greatly adds points to this replica watch.
Like I said before, I do not like the band, its outside nylon may look cool to some people, but it is not my style, and Panerai really liked to use such band design on their latest watches, I saw many already. It is acceptable to me if the watch is forged carbon, but I think a black leather band will be better to fit this stainless steel watch. What do you think?
There are a lot of popular models in Panerai collection, PAM 441 is one of them, if you want to buy one Panerai watch with ceramic case, the first model I recommend is PAM 441, actually it is also one of the few Panerai watches that feature ceramic case. About this PAM 1441, it is very similar to PAM 441, the watch caught a lot of attention from Panerai fans once being launched, it looks like a brother model of PAM 441. Actually you will find the difference between them easily if you hold them together in hands.
In our watch market, VS factory has the most complete collection of replica Panerai watches, it also makes the best replica Panerai watches, this PAM 1441 replica is also made by VS factory, although was produced by VS in December, 2020, it immediately became one of the best sellers of Panerai, many readers here asked me about PAM 1441 before, now it is finally available.
About PAM 1441, the biggest difference between it and PAM 441 maybe lies in the movement. PAM 441 uses P.9001 movement, while PAM 1441 is equipped with P.9010 movement. On both replicas of PAM 441 and PAM 1441, the movement is independently developed by VS factory themselves, both super clones, while PAM 1441 is much thinner because of the P.9010 movement. By the way, on outside, the biggest difference you can see is that PAM 1441 now has a solid case back.
The case is black ceramic, 44mm in diameter, while it is measured to be 16mm in thickness, much thinner than PAM 441, you know, PAM 441 replica from VS factory is up to 18mm, very thick. The solid case back hides the movement, so you can not appreciate the beauty of P.9010 movement, however, many people prefer the replicas to be with a solid case back, so that the movement can not be seen by other people who may think it is a replica. It sounds reasonable, this may be the reason why much more people ask for PAM 1441 now.
Black dial has a sandwiched construction, Arabic numeral hour markers are skeletonized, the small seconds hand is in blue, which highlights the entire black dial. GMT hand on the center is functional. Date window is positioned at 3 o’clock, it is very small, the date font has the same color as the luminous material applied on the hands, the entire dial has a very delicate matte texture.
Brown leather strap is a perfect match for PAM 1441, the band has a pre-v buckle in black ceramic, by the way, VS factory offers one pair of free black nylon straps for this watch, the nylon band has blue stitching that exactly echoes with the small seconds hand in blue on the dial. I like PAM 1441, if you are looking for a replica watch with ceramic case, then it is the first watch I recommend.
Like PAM 127, PAM 217 is also very popular, both are classic Panerai watches that still keep some features of old PAMs. 127 and 217 were discontinued in production before, now they are available again. PAM 127 and 217 now are produced by XF factory, before, many watch factories manufactured PAM 127 replica, including ZF, XF and Noob, PAM 217 was only made by Noob before, but it has been not available for years, now XF makes it, it is a good news for our watch fans who want one lefty PAM.
There are two big features of PAM 217, the biggest feature is its crown bridge that is positioned on the left side of the case, so, it is very suitable for people who want to wear the watch on their right hand, another iconic feature lies in its bubble crystal face that is domed, yes, it is also the feature of PAM 127. It is a real domed sapphire crystal.
PAM 217 is a big Panerai watch that is 47mm in case diameter, like most Panerai Submersible watches, PAM 217 is also very thick, I think it is because of its movement, the case thickness is up to 17.5mm, even thicker than most replicas of Panerai Submersible made by VS factory.
Black dial is covered by domed sapphire crystal, the entire dial adopts sandwiched structure, small seconds subdial is positioned at 3 o’clock, hour markers are skeletonized, big Arabic numbers 3-6-9-12 are very classic.Under dark conditions, you can see strong green lume light emitting from hands and hollow hour markers. See-through crystal back allows you to appreciate the beauty of the best manual-winding 6497 movement, which is correctly decorated.
By the way, the replica PAM 217 from XF is equipped with a black leather band, if you want to change another pair of straps, it is very easy to change the band, you know, many people bought Panerai watches just because it can bring fun to then when changing the band.
Another Panerai watch made of bronze material, last time, it is PAM 382, which is still selling very well in our market, in the past, PAM 382 bronzo is one of the top ten best-selling replica Panerai watches. PAM 968 is the newest bronzo model which Panerai published, compared with PAM 382, PAM 968 is thinner. Once being released, many people bought PAM 382, not only because Panerai used bronze material on this watch, but also its green dial is very attractive. The new PAM 968 uses a brown color, which may be more acceptable by some people, however, others think that green is the best match for bronze, check the photos below and tell me your opinion.
Like most Panerai, the new replica Panerai PAM 968 is also made by VS factory. There are many famous factories that make Rolex replicas, seems to be more and more in future, but about the production of Panerai replicas, only VS factory is doing this work, so I am wondering why no other factories join this field, I know they want to, but can not compete with VS factory, because VS factory is always the leader in manufacturing Panerai replica watches.
PAM 968 replica from VS factory is made with solid bronze material, some people who wanted to buy a PAM 382 replica before asked me if it is made with real solid bronze, I said yes, they do not believe, I asked why, because they do not believe in the rapid progress replica watch industry has made in recent years. But after receiving their watches, they all said the watches are amazing and great. PAM 968 has a case diameter of 47mm, the case is 15.5mm in thickness, actually such a big case is still too thick for a lot of people, but for many big tool watches with automatic movement and have a case up to 18mm, this is a big improvement for replica PAM 968.
The bezel, dial and band are in brown color, which exactly matches the bronzo tone of the case. Compared with PAM 382, maybe PAM 968 has a more uniform style, however, for me, PAM 382 is more attractive due to its green dial. With the brown color on bezel, dial and strap, the bronzo case looks like rose gold. The brown bezel has an insert made with real ceramic, brown dial has hour markers and hands filled with good quality luminous material.
VS factory offers one extra pair of green rubber straps for this watch, now if you buy this watch, you will get the green rubber straps for free. The specification of the watch is shared below:
Movement: Asia Clone P.9010, Hour Hand Adjustable Independently, Decorated to Genuine P.9010 Case: 47mm*15.5mm, Solid Bronzo Bezel: Brown Ceramic Crystal: Sapphire with Colorless AR Coating Dial: Brown with Superlumed Hour Markers and
Having not published reviews about Panerai replica watches for a long time, actually there are not new models coming from the market, all new replicas of Panerai have been reviewed on my blog, including PAM 961, PAM 985, PAM 960, PAM 1616, etc. It seems like all these new replica Panerai watches published in recent months are coming from Luminor Submersible collection, and most of them are made with forged carbon material, today, I would like to introduce another new Panerai replica watch that is also made with forged carbon material, but is is from Luminor Marina series, its reference number is PAM 1661.
Before giving a detailed introduction of PAM 1661, I want to know if the Basel event of this year has been cancelled, I did not see any new models coming from Rolex, if being cancelled, when will it be opened again? The cancel of Basel event in 2020 also affected the business of fake watch industry.
PAM 1661 is made by VS factory, now, almost all good quality replicas of Panerai are made by VS factory, you can not find any other factories that make better Panerai replicas than VSF, that’s the truth. There are also some exceptions, such as Noob PAM 111, ZF PAM 127. About this replica PAM 1661, it has a large case diameter of 44mm like other Luminor Marina models, the case is measured to be 18.5mm thick, I think it is too thick, even those replicas with Asia 7750 movement are not that thick, maybe this is the common issues of all replica watches, some factory claimed that their replicas have the same thickness as genuine, that’s impossible, I do not think they are, possibly they are already very close to.
PAM 1661 is made with forged carbon, in the past new models that were just published within months, most are made with forged carbon, some are made with Titanium, Panerai has seldom published new models that are made with stainless steel in recent years, looks like they are addicted to using new materials in their watch making, sometimes they did it and the result is really great, but do not forget your tradition, actually I do not like the design of PAM 1661, it looks like a cheap fashion watch, it is lack of Panerai’s classic.
The movement inside the replica is perfect, it is developed by VS factory themselves, Super Clone P.9010, which features balance wheel at 7 o’clock, is considered to be a perfect derived movement from P.9000. The movement is very reliable, but replica is a replica, if your contact did not test the movement for you before shipping, you still have a chance to get a “bad” one from VS factory. Now, buy this replica can get one extra pair of black rubber straps for free.
As a Luminor Submersible which Panerai published for people with thin wrist, PAM 683 was out of stock for some days before, now, just received the news from VS factory, saying that this replica watch is in stock again, with limited quantity this time.
PAM 683 belongs to Luminor Submersible series of Panerai, but it is 5mm smaller than traditional Submersible, and is also much thinner that is only 14.5mm. Maybe Panerai took the consideration of their Asia consumer groups when making this PAM 683, while a lot of my clients coming from USA and European countries asked me about this watch, now it is time to put your trigger.
PAM 683 from VS factory is made with 316F stainless steel, the bezel, dial and band all use same color, black, like the style of previous Submersible models published by Panerai before. The case is entirely brushed, including the bezel, lugs and crown bridge. Black bezel has a ceramic insert with silver studs, the pearl dot filled with luminous material and surrounded with silver edge, in dark place, you will see the pearl emitting a strong blue light. About crown bridge, it has a lever that presses down the crown, not like the screw-down system on most watches, but that does not affect its water resistance, claimed by VS factory, each Panerai replica watch coming from their factory is tested to be at least 30m waterproof.
Specification of the watch:
Movement: Super Clone OP XXXIV, Correct Position of Balance Wheel at 7 o’clock
Case: 42mm*14.5mm, 316F Stainless Steel
Bezel: Black Ceramic
Dial: Black with Superlumed Hour Markers
Band: Black Rubber Strap with Pre-V Buckle
Water Resistant: 30m
Maybe this is the last Panerai watch coming from VS factory before 2020, we have seen several new models of Panerai VS factory published in 2019, most of them are Submersible, today, before the end of 2019, I’d like to introduce one Luminor Marina Panerai, whose reference is PAM 661, like most other Submersible VS made in 2019, this PAM 661 also used the so-called Carbotech material, and is equipped with VS factory’s iconic Super Clone P.9010 movement. PAM 661 is not the Panerai watch with a classic outlook, maybe the special textures on the case can not be accepted by some people who only want a PAM with regular appearance, however, PAM 616 will be a necessary model for Panerai fans to know what changes have been made on the modern Panerai models.
First, VS factory used solid forged carbon material on the case, which is 44mm in diameter and 18.5mm in thickness. However, genuine watch is only 14.5mm thick, so the replica is up to 4mm thicker than genuine, you will have a more obvious feeling when you wear it on your wrist, 18.5mm will stand very high on your wrist, to reduce the case thickness, the most important thing is how to slim down the movement, let’s see what VS factory will do on their clone P series movements in future, because the movements installed by VS factory in their Panerai replica watches are thicker than original, many customers also said that the Panerai replica watches they bought are heavier and thicker than genuine.
Second, in modern Panerai watches, like PAM 661 and most Submersible published in this year, one big change is Panerai is more willing to use multi colors on the dial. Take this Luminor Marina PAM 661 for example, the blue small seconds hand is an eye catcher on the black dial, however, I do not like the blue, I would rather it uses the same color as the central hands. Hour markers are dotted except Arabic numerals at 6, 9 and 12. The luminous brightness of Superluminova C3 applied on hour markers and hands is as strong as genuine, but not as durable as the lume material used on original Panerai.
PAM 661 uses a brown leather band that features white hand stitching, the leather strap has a very soft texture and feels very comfortable to wear, if you do not like the brown color, you can order one extra pair of straps in other color from VS factory, we can send you one screwdriver to replace the band by yourself, it is very easy to replace the band on Panerai.
Again, in the coming Chinese New Year holiday, all watch factories are going to be off work soon, if you need watches, be better to place your order now, so we can ship them before our holiday.
Whether PAM 979, PAM 1616, PAM 616 or PAM 799, these Panerai replica watches which VS factory has published in recent two months all belong to Submersible models, today, I want to introduce another Panerai Submersible replica watch, it is a special edition for Mike Horn, the genuine watch has a reference PAM 984.
Now back to this PAM 984 replica watch, it is an art work from VS factory. The watch is fully made of solid Titanium material, like other Luminor Submersible models, this special edition uses a 47mm case that is fully brushed, while the case is not too thick, it is only 15mm, not 17mm thick. The bezel is uni-directional rotating, it has engraved markers that are brushed in sand-finished bezel background, this looks amazing and gives a strong visual effect.
The dial is black, it is sandwiched, the upper plate has skeletonized hour markers, the plate at bottom is painted with Swiss Grade SuperLume. Please notice, this PAM 984 is different from other Submersible models, it is like Omega Planet Ocean, the dial has two different lume light color, when you check the watch in dark condition, the minute hand looks blue, other hands and all hour markers look green. The subdial does not look like the one of traditional Luminor Submersible models, it looks more technological. This is a Mike Horn special edition, I think Panerai just let it looks unique.
The case back is solid and has detailed engravings, there is a big shark logo and Mike Horn signature, it looks so special. Open the back, the movement inside is a super clone P.9010, VS factory claimed that they made this movement according to genuine Panerai P.9010, we believed it is a custom-made, but it absolutely can not be compared with genuine Panerai P.9010. Somebody said it does not have difference, but I must say that the power reserve of this clone P.9010 is not that long like genuine. So, I suppose this clone P.9010 is also based on a Chinese automatic movement, just with decorated plates and auto rotor, and also the balance wheel is changed to correct position. So, never think that a replica watch can have the same movement as original watch.
At last, about the water resistance you guys mostly concern, you can wear the replica watch while washing your hands and swimming, but do not go to a deep diving with it. By the way, not all replica watches can accompany you to swim, this is true. Sometimes your dealer can pick up a good replica with perfect water resistant performance, sometimes if the watch is not sealed well, the water can easily penetrate the case.
