In recent weeks, many new models were published in our market, from VS factory, there are PAM 1056 and PAM 1118, for Rolex, Noob just unveiled their V11 Submariner and V4 Daytona, I am so excited, especially hearing that some factories released the updated versions of their star products, like Noob. For those new Panerai watches, I do not like them all, they are all too big for me, and most of them are made of forged carbon, I do not like, the Panerai I most want is stainless steel model, which looks more classic and more suitable for daily wearing.
PAM 1039, the new Panerai Submersible, comes from VS factory, like other Luminor Submersible, PAM 1039 is also very big, it is 47mm in case diameter, the case thickness is up to 16mm. Fortunately, the watch is made of forged carbon material, so it has a light weight, not heavy like some Submersible watches that are made with ceramic or Titanium. Both case and bezel are forged carbon made, with unique carbon textures.
The dial is unique, I do not know what material the dial is made of, it looks like a cloth and very dirty, I do not like it. Both hour and minute hands are skeletonized and have white lume coating on the tip. The central GMT hand has a bright arange end, which matches the orange small seconds hand at 9 o’clock. Like hands, the hour markers are surrounded with black frame and have white luminous coating in the middle.
Behind the solid case back, it is VS factory’s Super Clone P.9011 movement, whose plates and auto rotor have been decorated to outlook of genuine Panerai P.9011 Calibre, the clone P.9011 also has real GMT function, it looks very close to real P.9011 in outlook, maybe one flaw on that movement is its power reserve, which is not as long as that on genuine watch.
PAM 1039 is a special edition made for a special sports activity, maybe it is not the best choice for many people who love Submersible. So, there are other choice recommended like PAM 683, PAM 961, PAM 960, PAM 1616, PAM 382, they are all perfect Submersible Panerai replicas from VS factory.
