In recent months, it is the world of replica Rolex watches, and few PAMs were published during this period. Today, there is one replica Panerai finally unveiled in our market, it is Luminor Marina PAM 1523. It is a white model, yes, we seldom saw white PAMs in the past, but the first white model Panerai published was a Luminor Marina, it was a Daylight model specially designed for Sylvester Stallone. PAM 1523 is the latest Luminor Marina watch, now ZF factory published its replica, it is a great benefit for people who want such an anniversary model.
The case is made of solid 316L stainless steel, its diameter is up to 42mm, but only 15.8mm in thickness. Thanks to the action which ZF factory has made on the movement, so the case is slimmed down. The case is fully polished, except the brushed crown bridge positioned on the right side. Check the watch from sides, its cushion shape is more obvious.
About crystal, the replica uses a domed sapphire crystal, which has colorless ar coating. It is very difficult to make such a thick sapphire crystal in dome shape, the cost is also very high. And the sapphire crystal must perfectly fit the bezel, no gap is allowed otherwise the water will penetrate into, the factory claims that the replica is 30m water resistant, it needs skilled and experienced watch masters to achieve such a high level.
The dial is white, it has black Arabic numeral hour markers with small round dots that are filled with brown luminescence, so are the central hour and minute hands. The small seconds subdial positioned at 9 o’clock has a small blue hand, which looks very obvious on this white dial. The brown luminescence applied on hour markers and hands is very close to the brown color of the ASSO leather band.
PAM 1523 replica is equipped with a clone P.9010 movement, which is based on an Asia 7750. ZF factory has cut several extra components on the 7750 movement, so it is thin and look closer to genuine Panerai P.9010 Caliber. By the way, compared with genuine P.9010, the replica has a balance wheel that is positioned in a right position. By the way, every movement plate has been plated with Rhodium.
The replica is fitted with a brown ASSO leather band that has a suede face. To give the user a more comfortable wearing, the side that contacts your skin uses genuine calf skin leather. The ASSO leather band is specially processed, so it is long lasting. The buckle on the strap is Pre-V type, which is brushed. The Pre-V is my most favorite buckle.
Overreview, PAM 1523 is a great replica made by ZF factory, it is well configured and has a very reasonable price. Very worth to spend less than $350 USD on such a high quality replica.
