Let’s start this list with the luxury fake Panerai model that we used to see a lot on people’s wrists during the 2000s. It has become a true Panerai classic. The cheap relica Panerai Luminor Marina PAM00111 was introduced in 2002 and quickly became a hit. The watch was also available with a white dial (PAM00113) that graced the wrist of our Robert-Jan back in the day. But I have always preferred the classic aesthetic of a black dial with a nice leather strap over the white-dial version. While I would always pick the Luminor Base over the Marina because of its even more minimalist looks, the addition of the small seconds at 9 o’clock does bring a spark of life to the Swiss made fake watch because you can see it running.
The perfect replica Panerai UK features a 44mm stainless steel case that is roughly 14.5mm thick and has a lug width of 24mm. It comes with a nicely domed crystal, and it is also water-resistant to 300 meters. I remember quite vividly that the watch wears quite comfortably on my wrist despite its substantial size. As I am a big guy, the size has never been an issue for me. As most of you know, the Panerai Luminor fake for men is a true strap monster. There used to be a ton of different straps available for Panerai watches, and owners would switch things up regularly. I have always loved the look of black-dial Panerai copy watches online with a light brown/sand-colored suede or nubuck strap. There is something iconic and authentic about those looks.
The most popular Panerai
AAA fake Panerai equipped the watch with the COSC-certified Panerai caliber OP XI inside the stainless steel case. This manual-winding movement is based on the Unitas 6497-2. It operates at 21,600vph, has 17 jewels, and has a power reserve of 56 hours. But Swiss mvoement replicva Panerai made several modifications to the standard movement. These included the addition of a swan-neck regulator and Côtes de Genève decoration on the plates and redesigned bridges. The early replica watches for sale of the PAM00111 from 2002 to 2005 (E, F, and G-series) feature “Panerai” repeatedly engraved across the bridges. The movement is robust, reliable, and very easy to service. As you can see in the pictures, it is also visible through the sapphire display case back. There is something reassuring about the robust looks that I feel fits the overall design really well.
There is also a difference in the dials of the different generations of the high quality replica Panerai. Besides the slightly different finish of the movement, the earlier models from 2002 to 2005 also came with a traditional black dial with painted numerals and hash marks. All the models after the G-series (from 2006 on) have a sandwich dial. I would suggest chasing a version with a sandwich dial as it is a thing of beauty. The black dial with the cut-out numbers, hash marks, and small seconds indicator is placed on top of a disk with Super-LumiNova that looks amazing. The layered construction adds great depth to a simple dial design, and those intricate details make it such a nice timepiece. Finding a cheap fake Panerai Luminor Marina PAM00111 is not that hard. Expect to see prices in the ballpark of €3.5K to €5.5K for one. Considering its iconic status, that’s a bargain.
