Panerai is one of the most iconic luxury watches brand. Loved by some, hated by few, it certainly makes a big impact when you see one. If you ask me, they are very east to recognize. The big, bulky case and the several dial models make it obvious that we’re talking about a Panerai timepiece.
The watch was released 2005, which means about 11 years ago, so naturally you’d assume that would give replica manufacturers plenty of time to start reproducing this beautiful watch. But sadly, this hasn’t happened on a large scale.
These watches were the first to glow in the dark of the depth of the seas. Panerai was actually the supplier for the Royal Italian Navy. This is how their history begun. I’ve always been fascinated by Panerai’s beginnings.
About the Radiomir, if you were curious about where does its name come from, I will tell you. Radiomir comes from radium, an element used in the making of these watches. The PAM isn’t an exact replica.
It’s a larger size, an oversize vintage watch that looks just remade for the current trends if you’d like. I like wearing this kind or Panerai replica because they’re rarely seen as fake watches and they come in so many variations that I’m having a hart time believing that someone has such an extensive knowledge to spot this one out for a fake straight-up. And the chances of meeting that person that just might do it are so very slim.
