VS Factory V2 Edition Replica Panerai PAM 616 Luminor Submersible Forged Carbon Watch with Super Clone P.9000

Replica Panerai PAM 616

In recent weeks, I have introduced several Panerai watches that are made of forged carbon, they are PAM 979 and PAM 1616, both have received a lot of attention due to their forged carbon material and unique prints on the case. Panerai has published a lot of Luminor Submersible models, the most popular one should be PAM 382 that is made with bronze material. However, in all new models Panerai published in 2019, the most are those made of forged carbon. It seems like the hot period of Panerai has passed away, now people’s attention was attracted by other brands such as Hublot, Richard Mille and IWC.

In our market, the replica PAM 616 was published by KW factory two years ago, today, this watch I am going to review is the V2 edition VS factory just released several days ago, now VS factory made some improvement on its previous version. The biggest updation on this latest PAM 616 lies in its movement, which has set the balance wheel in right 7:00 position, like PAM 441 and PAM 438, these hot PAMS made by VS factory are now all equipped with this Super Clone P.9000 movement.

Like PAM 1616 I just reviewed, PAM 616 is also made of forged carbon, the case and bezel look really big but they do not have a heavy weight like those stainless steel or ceramic PAMs, actually compared with Rolex Submariner or those full stainless steel models, I more like to choose a forged carbon Panerai as my diver’s watch, because it will have a more comfortable wearing feeling, especially when you in deep sea.

Different from PAM 1616, PAM 616 has a black dial with white dotted markers, there are a small second hand running at 9:00 subdial, the small hand works very smoothly, no ticking or jumping issues. Look at the last photo in the article, the dial lume light is very strong. The bezel pearl, hour markers and hands will emit the same green lume light in dark conditions.

This watch uses a black rubber band with classic Panerai OP Logo signature. In my memory, Panerai has used three types of bands in their Luminor Submersible models, brown leather straps for PAM 382, green nylon and this black rubber strap. The wide and thick brown leather strap is specially designed for PAM 382 Bronzo, while the black rubber strap is also a very ideal choice for PAM 616. This type of rubber band uses the natural rubber material imported from Malaysia, it is soft and has a strong stretching.

PAM 382 is one of the best-selling Panerai watches, I think PAM 616 is also pursued by a lot of watch fans, if not, VS factory would not continuously improve it and publish its V2 edition.

This is the second Carbotech watch I have seen in this month. The first is PAM 979, this watch has a reference PAM 1616. Both are the latest Submersible models Panerai published in 2019 SIHH. Now you can find good quality replicas of both in our market, it is really lucky for us. VS is always the first factory to make the replicas once there are new Panerai watches published each year, yes, I admit that VS factory, whose previous name is KW, has a long history in making replicas of Panerai and can always bring us surprise in this field.

Like Submariner 116610LN and Daytona Super Clone 4130 for Noob factory, VS factory also has their own iconic models, such as PAM 441, PAM 438, PAM 382, etc. I think this PAM 1616 will also be on this list.

This replica uses real Carbotech material like genuine PAM 1616. The case is big in 47mm and 17mm thick, but the whole watch does not feel heavy just because it uses this lightweight carbon material. The case, bezel and lugs all have unique prints. The bezel has blue pearl and blue markings between 0 and 15.

Compared with the blue color usage on this PAM 1616, I prefer the white and black on PAM 979. Actually I do not like this style, the blue applied on lume bezel pearl and hour markers and hands makes the watch a bot show off.

On black dial, the hour hand and minute hand are skeleton, there is blue lume coating on the tip. The blue lume coating applied on hour markers and hands is thick and can make them have a long-lasting superlume in the dark. Like genuine PAM 1616, the replica has two different lume light on the dial.

About the movement, it is super clone 4130, I can say it is completely custom made by VS factory, this movement has become the pround of VS factory, with it, all PAMs replicas can completely achieve the full functions of genuine Panerai, including GMT, which works as accurate as genuine, also adjusted like genuine, this is unbelievable.
