Panerai has always been known for making big watches, all PAMs I have seen have big and robust case design, they not only have a large case diameter, but also are very thick, so, this is the impression which Panerai has left in my brain, I am a fan of Panerai, I want to wear them every day, but I can’t because of my small wrist. A good news for me is that Panerai has published several models with smaller size, in their new Luminor due collection, the watches are 42mm and have a thinner case, so they are really good choices for people with small wrist but also want to own a Panerai.
Just two days ago, VS factory brought us a very good watch, I will buy one as a Christmas gift for myself, it is PAM 906, with a case that is much thinner than other Panerai watches. It is first time for me to see such a thin Panerai, nice watch I must say.
VS makes the replica with 316L stainless steel, both case and bezel are polished, to control the thickness of the entire watch, VS factory also needs to install the sapphire crystal in a proper place, so it won’t increase the thickness. PAM 906 has a very clean and fresh blue outlook, with a thin case, I think it is not only suitable for men, but can also fit women very well. Some readers of my blog asked me if there are good quality PAMs they could buy for their wife, I think PAM 906 is a good choice, beside, there are also other good timepieces for ladies in Luminor due collection.
I like the dial, those blue Arabic numeral hour markers strike your eyes on the ivory white dial. Central hands and the small seconds hand have blue edge, while their center is coated with yellowish luminous material. The dotted markers next to each Arabic number is plump, in dark conditions, you will see a strong lume light emitting from the dial.
The PAM 906 replica is equipped with a Super Clone OP XXXIV movement developed by VS factory. You can not see the movement due to the solid case back, maybe PAM 906 will be accepted by more people if it has a see-through crystal back, not a solid one. By the way, I love that blue leather band, it not only matches the blue color on the dial, but also has a high quality texture, which will feel very soft and offers comfortable wear, buckle attached with the band is polished, with “PANERAI” engravings. Extra original Panerai box now has a discounted price.
