The new Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 Amagnetic 3 Days Automatic Titanio PAM01389 Replica brings a few neat updates to the 389, without compromising the overall execution or design intent of the original. But unless you’re Sly Stallone or a Paneristi die-hard, that might not exactly be a good thing.
Technically speaking, the 389 was significant not just for its debut screen time, but for its build, as it exhibited the brand’s first ceramic bezel in a Luminor model, and it was the first anti-magnetic watch produced by Cheap Panerai Replica. It’s quite a handsome look – introducing a modern, industrial dive watch vibe to the the austere, minimalist aesthetic that’s defined the Panerai design language for the last 60 years or so.
The applied hourly indices are now a razor’s edge thicker, the running small seconds hand at 9:00 is now a cheerful shade of blue, and the luminous application to the hands and indices is now two-tone – the minute hand glows blue to match the bezel pip, while all other markings glow green.
Most notably though, the new 1389 has been updated with Panerai Replica Watches newest automatic caliber: the P.9010, which carries the same double-barreled, 3-day power reserve as its in-house manufactured predecessor, but now adds an independently adjustable hour hand – a feature that’s becoming increasingly common on many modern Panerai models, and a boon for frequent fliers.
The one thing that hasn’t changed between the 389 and the 1389, is that this is still, a very big Best Panerai Replica Watches at 47mm. Yes, it’s considerably lighter than a comparable 47mm PAM00372 in stainless steel, but the weight savings do little to reduce the watch’s visual presence, which threatens to overwhelm at most angles.
That said, if you love the undeniably cool aesthetic of the 1389, there’s always the more traditionally-sized 42mm PAM682, but you miss out on the anti-magnetic capabilities and ceramic bezel, along with the ability for the dial to double as a serving plate in a pinch. Kidding aside, it’s clear that the rest of the industry has been responding to a return to smaller sizes – 43mm seems to be the new 42, down from the 45 and 47mm Luxury Panerai Watches that once dominated Panerai’s modern collection. That’s why another 47mm watch in 2017 actually feels a little dated right out of the gate – despite its undeniably cool, and classic aesthetic.
