For those who are die-hard Panerai fans, or those with wrists capable of taming a 47mm watch, the brand’s 1:1 best fake Submersible in carbon is a really neat timepiece to explore. With such a large size, it’s fabrication in metal can result in quite a heavy watch – and heavy does not always translate well for daily active wear. With the brands proprietary Carbotech™, wearers can enjoy a more lightweight solution from the brand without sacrificing the robust reliability Swiss made replica Panerai has built its name on.
The Carbotech™ bezel and crown guard has a wavy vertical brush to it, while the case and lugs have a more of a circular brush. This is really interesting to see as, more often than not, carbon watches harness the material’s irregular natural pattern. This shows Panerai’s extensive fabrication capabilities with the material, giving it a more defined and intentionally detailed look.
The black dial of the watch is warmed by sage-toned fauxtina lumiscent coatings. The vintage vibe is then countered with a modern bright blue running seconds hand and register as well as its Carbotech™ printed text above the sixth hour marker. On its rubber strap, even the Panerai logo is rendered in a matching blue – freshening the watch up with a subtle youthful energy.
Beneath its solid screw-down titanium caseback, the watch features a double-barrel P.9000 movement that will run for about three days. The watch, as expected from Panerai, is highly water-resistant. It is capable of reaching depths of up to 300 metres and its iconic crown guard ensures it does not take in moisture or water on even the most daring of adventures.
