When I saw this PAM for the first time, it reminds me of PAM 360, two watches are famous models in Panerai world. In my experience in replica watch world for several years, the manual winding models are not popular as automatic PAMs, certainly except PAM 005 and 111, which are made by Noob factory and got a great success, they are the watches that are replicated to be closest to genuine. PAM 786 is a destro model, which means left handed. You have to admit the Luminor case of Panerai is very classic, not only meets current big watch size trend, but also has a perfect water resistance performance. Like PAM 111, PAM 786 is also a very simple Panerai watch. This is the first time for V6 factory to replicate PAM 786, so this is the first version, I do not know if they will improve it and produce a better one, but this watch has already been one perfect 1:1 replica. This has also proven one truth that more simple the watch is, easier for the factory to manufacture one high quality replica.
The case is measured to be 44mm in diameter, 15mm thick. The black case is not made with ceramic, but solid 316L stainless steel with DLC coating. The iconic crown bridge is positioned on left case at 9 o’clock, case is brushed evenly and lugs have perfect arc so that the whole watch can fit your wrist in a comfortable way. Solid case back is made of 316L stainless steel, there is a big OP Logo engraving on the center of the back, like genuine PAM 786, the replica has OP reference and other information engraved on the back correctly.
On black dial, there are no complex elements or decorations, just sandwiched structure with simple things. “PANERAI” lettering in white and “LUMINOR BLACK SEAL” under big 12 marker. The disc on bottom is filled with white luminour material, the disc above has skeletonized hour markers so that the luminescence can display through the disc above. All hour markers and hands will emit strong green light. By the way, the leaf-shaped small second hand is running on subdial at 3 o’clock.
I like the brown leather strap, exactly its old feeling makes me love the replica PAM 786 watch more. The strap is equipped with a Pre-V buckle, which has DLC coating and engraved with “PANERAI” and OP Logo. Please see the pin buckle, it looks very elegant.
