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.
