PAM 690, which is published by Panerai in 2016, is an extremely harmonious watch, if you have noticed its dial, the metallic blue texture is the biggest feature of PAM 690. The watch belongs to Radiomir 1940 series of Panerai, so it has the most authentic features of Radiomir. Unlike modern Radiomir case, I see the case of Radiomir 1940 is very similar to Luminor’s. Actually, the design of Luminor case is exactly derived from Radiomir watch. Besides the lack of crown bridge, the case of PAM 690 is very close to Luminor case.
The replica is made by S factory, which has made several pieces of high quality Panerai replica watches with clone P.3000 movement that features 72-hour power reserve. The case is very large, its diameter is 47mm, which is bigger than most Rolex Submariner watches but much thinner than them. The case and bezel are polished, the PAM reference and OP number are engraved on the case between lugs. Case back is see-through that is displaying the mechanism of the replica PAM 690.
Metallic blue dial gives a hit to the appearance of the whole watch. The dial is sandwiched, the disc below is applied with luminescence that has the same tone as leather strap, the top disc is in blue color, it is like a mirror. The tone of hands is also the same as that of leather band. The dial is perfectly in line with the leather strap color. By the way, the small second hand is running on the subdial at 9 o’clock.
About its band, I more think it is a leather strap in grey color although many people think it is in brown. The strap color is perfectly in line with the color of luminescence applied on hands and markers. The strap will feel a little harder when wearing it for the first time, but it is durable and will become softer after being worn for several times.
The replica watch is equipped with the most powerful manual winding movement, which is installed with two barrels that could offer 72-hour power reserve for the replica. The power reserve capacity is real and not fault. However, you have to wind the watch every day, maybe two times each day to ensure enough power for the replica.
