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.
