PAM 111 is a very simple model from Panerai, so it is very easy for the factory to replicate it. There have been already two watch factories in Chinese market manufacturing PAM 111, the earliest is Noob, the latter is H factory, certainly, the best replica PAM 111 is made by Noob, which is also known as Mr Creme De La Creme. The PAM 111 is under Luminor Marina series, like PAM 049, it has an extremely simple design but has won a high popularity among those watch fans who love PAMs.
The case is made of 316F stainless steel, which is polished, the bezel is smooth round and also polished, the unique crown bridge features ball-bearing and it is brushed in appearance. The brushing case is brilliant and looks like a mirror. The dial is the most favorite place I like, it is sandwiched and easy to read time, it makes the replica closest to genuine. The dial has two discs, the top one is skeletonized with bar-shaped and 3-6-9 hour markers, the bottom disc is filled with genuine Super-LumiNova C1+C3, which makes the dial offer a strong and durable lume. The small second hand runs smooth on the subdial at 9:00.
Let’s directly see the most important part of the watch, yes, it is the movement. The see-through crystal case back completely displays the mechanism of this manual winding movement, which is an Asian clone Unitas 6497-2. The movement has 17 jewels and beats 21600 times per hour. It is the most high-end handwound movement I have ever seen on replica watches, each plate is perfectly polished with smooth edge, there are blue screws and rosy red jewels, very beautiful, the lettering like “OFFICINE PANERAI” and “SEVENTEEN 17 JEWELS” are in blue color, these engravings are filled with blue ink but not directly painted like other versions of replica PAM 111. Besides, the movement features a dagger swan neck regulator, which is correct and woking like the genuine. The updated Y-Incabloc shock absorber mod also makes the replica movement more stable and accurate.
So, if you want to wear a simple, comfortalbe and accurate Panerai watch, this PAM 111 is absolutely a good choice.
