The new panerai submersible replica watches QuarantaQuattro Bianco PAM01226 reminds me of the first Panerai replica watch that brought me to the brand. It must have been sometime in the summer of 2004 when my then girlfriend (now my wife) and I went to Antwerp. As I often do when traveling, I also went to several jewelry stores nearby to check some watches. One of them is Panerai dealer. I noticed a model in the window, which immediately aroused my interest. This is a white dial Panerai PAM00113 replica watch with brown leather strap.
At that moment, I never owned Panerai’s replica watch. However, I really like PAM00113’s big case, big numbers and the unusual white dial at that time. I have seen and tried black dials on Panerai Luminor and Luminor Base replica models, but never used white dials. Usually, I’m not a big fan of white dials, because I think they are too hard for my eyes. Especially my pale complexion, they don’t look very good. However, I chose it because wearing PAM00113 on the tan leather strap will soften the white dial slightly. I didn’t buy it on the spot, but ordered it through the regular watch dealer at that time.

When the replica watch arrived, the big wooden box left an instant and lasting impression on me. Inside is a watch, an additional rubber strap, and a screwdriver for changing the strap. This is a dangerous thing; Alas, the fast changing system we see today is not common at the beginning of the 21st century. With a little 3M tape, you can at least protect the lug from scratches to some extent when replacing the belt.
I never wore it on the attached rubber belt. However, I did get other straps that fit the huge 24mm Panerai lug. Crocodiles, cowboys, calves, even beaver tails – I have them all. Swapping watchbands always gives your watch a new (or at least different) look. It doesn’t seem necessary – at least for a while – to buy another replica panerai watch to scratch the hands of the tickle watchers who have always been there.
But, as always, something new is coming. Finally, Replica Panerai PAM00113 had to make way for new products. I don’t even remember what the watch is. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if we talked about some kind of speed master here (nor would you be surprised). In other words, my focus at that time was on watches with this small crown on the dial.
A few years later, a black dialed Copy Panerai watch base sign followed (PAM00000, if memory allows), but it was a short adventure. From the collector’s point of view, I lost interest in Panerai, but in the next few years, I have been following the Florence brand. Although I don’t always like the products copy Panerai made or displayed for us during the SIHH exhibition (now watches and miracles), this also applies to many brands. First of all, I am an observer. I write watches that I find interesting. Whether they will appear in my personal collection is not important.
Submersible QuarantaQuattro Bianco PAM01226 replica watches
The Panerai replica submersible QuarantaQuattro Bianco PAM01226 was strapped to produce an effect I did not expect. From the beginning, I liked it very much. This is interesting because, in general, I tend to stay away from white dials (with some exceptions, of course). However, the combination of steel bezel, green strap and white dial is suitable for me. If the bezel is black ceramic or other contrasting colors, it may be different.
PAM01226 is P. of Panerai replica 900 movement. This is not the movement developed internally, but the movement of other brands of watches under Richemont Group. At this price point, a real internal movement will be very good, but I also think the whole “internal” thing is overestimated. In the process of launching this watch (but this also applies to some other Panerai watches), the biggest complaint is that Panerai uses P.900 in a watch with this price tag.
But apart from the movement, as far as Panerai copy is concerned, P The 900 movement is not what I really worry about. I just like the look of this watch. I really think the price of 9200 euros is a little high, but it is purely based on aesthetics, which is a surprise from the Florence brand for me. During the “Watches and Miracles” period, we (our team) joked that almost everything has at least a five digit price tag. Suddenly, 9200 euros sounded like a deal.
It is mainly the combination of clean white dial, 316L steel large case and watch ring that makes me want to wear PAM01226. Green rubber strap adds a little military or practical flavor. The only thing I’m not sure about is the date aperture. There is a small bevel step around the date window, possibly because the date disk is deeper than other models. I could have never dated at all, but for me, this is a small matter. In this case, it is definitely not a deal breaker.
