Radiomir in the Panerai collection is actually the name of a luminescent material. In 1916, Panerai applied for a patent for Radiomir. This technology is widely used in time scales and pointers. This material was also used in the diving watches provided for the Royal Italian Navy at the time. Next I want to introduce a special but representative Panerai Radiomir fake watch.
Fake Panerai Radiomir 1936 PAM 249
The replica Panerai Radiomir 1936 PAM 249 watch was released in 2006. It is to commemorate the watch provided by Panerai for the Italian Royal Navy in 1936. In addition, this watch is limited to 1936. This watch has seriously restored the most original design, incorporating only a few modern designs. Now let’s take a closer look at this watch.
The modern fake Panerai Radiomir 1936 PAM 249 is very similar to the original model. The 47mm wide cushion-shaped case is paired with a flared crown. The glass on the front of the dial is still original plexiglass crystal, but the bottom cover is replaced by modern sapphire crystal. Then we can see the OP X manual winding movement. This is a modern movement with a 56-hour power reserve. The strap chose a brown leather strap that also has a retro style. It is worth mentioning that these wire lugs can be worn by the wearer to easily change the strap.
One of the characteristics of Panerai watches replica is the California dial. The time scale of this dial is very interesting. The upper and lower parts of the dial use Roman numerals and Arabic numerals, respectively. Rectangular time scales are used at positions 3, 6 and 9, and triangular time scales at 12 o’clock. Because military watches can not have redundant information, so as not to leak information. So there is no text in the California dial except the time scales and hands. The luminescent material was replaced by Luminova because radium is a dangerous material.
Because the number of this watch is very limited, but its significance and design have attracted a lot of fans, so really PAM 249 can not meet everyone’s needs. Then some sellers will choose high-quality replica watches.
