Now, the virus situation is very serious, maybe the confirmed cases will be up to one million in next month. Hope you guys stay safe and healthy. We still do not know the source of this virus, at the beginning, some experts said it came from the bat, but I do not think so, because these experts did not talk about bat any more. During this special time, every one is suggested to stay home, what I can do is to post some useful watch reviews for you to read, and if you guys need masks, I can also get for you, there are many masks here in China, KN95 Masks, Medical Surgical Masks are all in stock.
Today, the replica watch I am going to review is a Panerai, whose reference is PAM 692. The watch is a big Luminor Submersible, it is the latest work from Panerai, named “BMG-Tech” model. Like previous Luminor Submersible model, PAM 692 BMT-Tech also has a big case diameter that is up to 47mm, however, different from PAM 984, PAM 985 and other Submersible models that were published by Panerai in last year, PAM 692 seems to use more characteristics of traditional Luminor Submersible, that’s what I like, personally, I do not like those Submersible watches with more modern elements like sharp small seconds hand.
The replica is made with Titanium, which is real, not like the latest Seamaster 007 No Time to Die, although the factory claimed that it is Titanium, it is not real, that’s shame. We do not know when they will fix this issue and release the right version. The case has a thickness of 16.5mm, it is fully brushed either on case or bezel, the 0-15 minute markers on the bezel are engraved and have black fill. The luminous material filled in the bezel pearl is pure and full, which makes the pearl lume light strong and long-lasting.
The dial has lettering “BMG-TECH” printed in blue that just matches with the blue seconds hand in subdial at 9 o’clock. Case back is solid, there is a torpedo engraved on the center. The replica Panerai uses VS factory’s in-house Super Clone P.9000 automatic movement that features a balance wheel at correct 7 o’clock. Genuine watch is 300m waterproof, while the replica has been tested to be 30m water resistant.
