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.
Nowadays in this field, if you are new and want to buy a good one among so many replica watches coming from various manufacturers, I must say it is very hard, especially there are no purchase suggestion in this area on the internet. If you ask for advice in forums like repgeek, replica-watch or rwg, those people will only recommend you to buy the most expensive watches, they will not give you an honest advice. If you just entered this industry, I do not suggest you buy an expensive watch that is more than $400 usd, that’s too much money. So today, I picked up ten watches for you, each of them is uder $400 usd, they are also in good quality, I think they are the best choices for beginners.OM Factory Royal Oak 15400
1.OM Factory Royal Oak 15400
In many articles, I said J12 makes the best Royal Oak 15400 replica, especially the V5 edition they just published, it is perfect. But why I recommend the 15400 from OM factory to beginners, because it is almost $100 USD cheaper than J12 15400. Plus shipping fee, you need to spend almost $500 USD on a JF Royal Oak 15400 V5 Edition. The quality of replica 15400 from OM factory is also good, its dial has black, white, blue and grey color options. OM was good at making Omega Speedmaster Chrono before, now it has expanded its watch business, I trust their watch-making technology and service.DJ Factory Datejust 41mm 126334 with Jubilee Bracelet
2. DJ Factory Datejust 41mm 126334 with Jubilee Bracelet
From its name, you will know that DJ factory makes good quality replica Rolex Datejust watches. In our market, too many factories make Rolex watches, among them, the most famous are Noob, BP, AR, EW and DJ. However, for most Datejust watches, Noob does not have stocks, if you want to order a Datejust watch from Noob, you need to wait for more than one month or two. About this Datejust II 126334, AR, EW and DJ make it. While I only recommend beginners to buy the one from DJ. Why? Because I think DJ has two advantages, first, compared with AR factory, it is nearly $120 usd cheaper, second, compared with EW factory, DJ makes this Datejust with 904L stainless steeel, while EW only makes it with 316L stainless steel. This Datejust 41mm features a Jubilee bracelet, its dial has black, white, grey and blue options, I think the grey dial version is better. By the way, this Datejust is equipped with a golden Asia ETA 2824 automatic movement.
3. Noob V8 Submariner 116610LN
Submariner must be recommended. The latest version of Noob Submariner is V9. While V9 is sold at much more expensive than V8 edition because V9 uses 904L stainless steel. About other details, Noob claims that they are the same. So, I think it is no need for you to spend extra $100 USD to buy Noob V9 116610LN. About the movement, I suggest you choose Asia ETA 2836 movement, one of my client bought Noob V8 Submariner 116610LN with Asia 2836 movement, and he has been wearing the watch for almost three years, it is really stable and has few repairing rate. This watch is highly recommended for beginners.
4. JH Daytona Stainless Steel
Daytona is also a good choice, while too many factories are making replica Daytona, prices are different, quality also varies. If you have a big budget, I suggest you buy the latest version from Noob factory. If not, purchasing from JH factory is also a good idea, because whether the Daytona from Noob or AR factory is too expensive. The Daytona watch from JH factory is not only cheap, but also has a fully functional chronograph, the movement is 7750, whose stability has been tested for years.
5. F16 Factory Classic Fusion 42mm
Now, I confirm that JJ factory has been closed. So, the factories that make Hublot Classic Fusion replica watches are F16 and WWF. Both make good quality Hublot Classic Fusion watches, only different in case diameter. F16 makes 42mm Classic Fusion, while WWF makes 45mm Classic Fusion, here I recommend the 42mm Classic Fusion to beginners. The dial color varies, but the most classic is black or grey dial, here I show you the photos of the grey dial version.
6. ZF V5 Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve
About eight years ago, IWC Portuguese 7 Days Power Reserve was the best seller, nowadays, this watch is still selling very well. The best version, also the latest edition is V5, from Z factory(ZF). About the power reserve indicator, it is working like genuine, in movement outlook, the clone IWC 52010 movement is unbeatable, the movement also has a long power reserve that is up to 3 days, I have tested it. The white dial matches with black leather strap, looking so classic, it is must have dress watch.
7. Noob PAM 111
It is the first high end 1:1 replica Panerai, in the past, it is also the most iconic model of Noob factory. There are many other Panerai watches that are sold much better than PAM 111, but I think PAM 111 should have a position in this list. For daily wearing, I think stainless steel PAM 111 is more suitable than ceramic PAM 441 and PAM 438.
8. Noob PAM 127
Like PAM 111, PAM 127 also has become the iconic model of Noob factory, it is even more popular than PAM 111. With Unitas 6497 movement, Noob installs Y-Incabloc Shock Protection System on this movement, to enhance the stability of the movement. Actually all PAMs with such Unitas 6497 movement have few technical issues, almost no. So,if you are going to buy your first Panerai and want to wear it for years, please choose the one with Unitas 6497 movement, it is even more stable than the Panerai with automatic movement. By the way, in September, Noob gives special price for PAM 127.
9. V6 Ballon Bleu 42mm
The stainless steel model with white dial and blue hands is very classic, it is also a good gift in the coming Christmas Day, be prepare now. V6 is the first factory in our market to make replicas of Cartier Ballon Bleu, all sizes they make, including 28mm, 33mm and 42mm. I think this 42mm is more suitable for men. There are also other factories that make Ballon Bleu watches, but please purchase from V6, their quality is guaranteed. The movement inside this Ballon Bleu 42mm shown below is a clone Cartier 1847 MC, which is modified on basis of Japanese Miyota 9015. The factory also offers Asia 2824 movement option, both are in high quality.
10. VS Factory Seamaster Aqua Terra 150m
VS makes a lot of good quality Omega Seamaster replica watches, including the famous Planet Ocean, Seamaster Diver and 007 Special Editions, while considering daily wear for beginners who are going to buy their first replica watch, I think this Seamaster Aqua Terra 150m is the best choice. First, it is fully made of 316L stainless steel, not like most Planet Ocean with ceramic that is sold more than $400 usd, while this Seamaster Aqua terra 150m is under $350 usd. Second, through the crystal back, the self developed Super Clone 8500 by VS factory is flawless in appearance.
Now, all watches in this top ten list have been introduced, they represent the best quality at this price range from $300 usd to $360 usd. Some are even sold at about $250 usd. These watches have necessary functions for daily use, please consider.
Both Noob and V6 factory made this watch, Noob is the earliest factory that researched Asia ETA 6497 movement in our market, and PAM 127 made by Noob is indeed has the Asia 6497 movement that is closest to genuine. Why didn’t I put PAM 111 first? Because the domed sapphire crystal adds points to this watch. Many people are willing to choose PAM 127 as their first Panerai watch also due to its domed crystal face. The watch has a see-through crystal back, but do not worry, this won’t be a big tell for the replica, because the movement has a very close decoration to genuine ETA 6497. Fitted with a brown leather strap, which feels very soft to wear. PAM 127 is absolutely a good combination of classic and vintage.
2. VSF PAM 438
The most popular ceramic Panerai watch in our market. The latest version is the one made by VS factory, with super clone P.9001 automatic movement. Please notice, be sure to choose the one with super clone P.9001 movement, VS factory just developed this movement, it was independently researched by VSF, the movement has the correct balance wheel position at 7 o’clock, so check the movement through crystal back, you won’t find any flaws. PAM 438 is an entire ceramic watch, from case and bracelet, the watch is made of real black ceramic, in brushed finish. Super texture and wearing comfort, the watch will never be out of date.
3. VSF PAM 441
Yes, VS factory almost replicated each Panerai model. They have the most complete collection of replica Panerai watches. PAM 441 is another hot selling ceramic PAM from VSF. Like PAM 438, PAM 441 from VSF is also made of real black ceramic on case, the watch is equipped with super clone P.9001 movement that is independently developed by VSF. It is a real GMT watch, the GMT hand on the dial can work the same way as genuine. By the way, the dial features a Flush Cannon Pinion like genuine. Brown ASSO leather band is distressed and is a perfect match for this brushed black ceramic watch.
4. VSF PAM 382
Is PAM 382 the first Panerai watch made with Bronze material? I think it is. And the replica version from VS factory now is upgraded to V2 edition. ZF factory also made this watch, but because VSF has their own super clone P.9000 installed in this watch, so I think the best PAM 382 is made by VSF. Bronze case and green dial perfectly match with each other, both are the biggest selling points of this watch. When PAM 382 was firstly introduced in our market, it soon became the best-selling diver’s watch at that time. With a distressed brown leather strap, PAM 382 brings a lot of wearing fun for our Panerai fans.
5. Noob PAM 111
The latest PAM 111 from Noob is V5 edition. Some people think that PAM 111 should rank first place in this list, it deserves if it was five years ago. However, PAM 111 is still the first choice for many beginners, due to its simple dial design and functions, the replica watch could be made to be 99% the same as genuine, besides, PAM 111 from Noob factory also has a less repairing rate than other PAMs.
6. VSF PAM 688
PAM 688, also coming from VS factory. The latest version is V2. Upgraded from V1, now the watch has been equipped with a super clone P.9001 movement. Based on V1, PAM 688 V2 has the movement greatly improved. Now you can adjust the date through hour hand only, GMT is 12-hour, not 24. The movement is slimmer, so the whole case looks thinner, more close to genuine case. PAM 688 is also the first Panerai watch I saw, blue dial and blue leather strap, making the watch look fresh among so many black PAMs.
D-Blue and Black Submariner all belong to top replicas. There are two movement options, Hangzhou 6300 and Shanghai 3135. The size is 44mm and 40mm. In my opinion, if you want a comfortable winding experience, choose 3135 movement, if you have a limited budget, then choose the cheaper 6300.
IWC371446, case diameter is 41mm. It uses the most stable Dandong chronograph movement. This Portuguese replica is made by GP, ZF or 3A factory. The version from GP factory is the best.
PAM 111, the must-have Panerai watch, because it is in high quality and with a cheap price. The replica is equipped with a Sea-Gull ST3600 manual winding movement, which is very stable.
Ballon Blue, the classic of V6 factory, and also the best in the market. V6 factory makes three versions for Ballon Blue, one is with Sea-Gull 2824, one is with ETA 2892, the last uses Sea-Gull 2892. The one with genuine ETA 2892 movement is the best Ballon Bleu, and absolutely sold at a high price. Rhodium plated dial has a strong three-dimensional feeling.
Steelfish from H factory is very cost-efficient, it has a considerable finishing and weight. The dial has black and blue options.
AP 15703 is an important milestone in replica watch world. I recommend the 15703 replica made by JF. If you want a better price, choose V7 with 2824 movement, considering a more stable movement, you can choose V8 with Miyota 9015.
Now black Sub comes. This replica has already been manufactured well. About movement, I prefer 3135, the winding direction is correct and winding feel is very good. Highly recommended.
Santos, the one above is equipped with a genuine ETA 2892 movement. However, I recommend the replica Santos with a Sea-gull 2892 movement, because it has a good case, dial, the movement is also quality, but the price is much cheaper.
Portofino, this watch has the best version from MK factory. Perfect replica level, 2892 movement.
The last one is a Jaeger-LeCoultre. It is the latest good replica in the market. The crystal has a green AR Coating, very unique. Movement uses Tianjin ST17 automatic.
PAM 111 is the oldest Panerai that was replicated by Noob factory, it is also the first batch of 1:1 Panerai replicas in the market. At that time, PAM 005 and PAM 111 were mainly manufactured by two factories, Noob and H. Absolutely the best one is made by Noob. PAM 111 replica hs been improved several times, now the versions we call is V4. Among all those versions published before, although the appearance is more and more closer to genuine watch, their movement still used a clone ETA 6497, which is actually based on Sea-Gull 6497. However, it is very fortunate for us that Noob factory ordered hundreds of genuine ETA 6497 movements from abroad, and they installed in their legendary PAM 111. So, the PAM 111 I am going to introduce today has a big difference with its previous versions, that is this one is equipped with a genuine Swiss ETA movement. So, from outer to inner side, the watch can be said is a completely 1:1 replica.
Fake watches business has been developped for many years, so for PAM 111 with such a simple appearance design, it is not difficult for the factory to replicate it to be 100% the same as genuine, after all, the replica has been modified several times, each modification was made on the basis of customers’ reviews, so for PAM 111, I can say it is the replica that is closest to genuine watch. This also has confirmed the truth, which is more simple the watch is, the less difficult the replication will be.
How simple PAM 111 is? The dial tells you everyting. Two hands in the center, a small second hand is running on the subdial at 9, the dial is a classic sandwiched structure, with 3, 6 and 12 Arabic hour markers, besides time displaying, you can not find any other functions on the dial. The dial does not have too many complicated details, so the factory could focus on every detail and make them the best. In addition, the replica has applied original Super-LumiNova material on hands and markers, so you will find the light emitting from the dial is strong and long lasting.
The movement is genuine ETA 6497, you can find genuine movement photos and put them together to compare. The jewels color, swan neck shape and shock absorber are all the same as genuine 6497. The case back is see-through crystal, the movement is under your eyes, so I won’t use a false 6497 to deceive you guys.
About the Panerai Luminor Marina 111 replica, besides the genuine leather brown leather strap that uses imported Italian calf skin, it also has a black rubber band option. If you do not like its transparent case back, you can choose PAM 005, the quality is the same, I mean both are in top grade.
