Panerai appears to be looking to replicate that success with the newly announced Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Bronzo PAM 671 Copy Watches, or “Blue Bronzo” – a beautiful and worthy successor to the watch that put bronze into the luxury spotlight and ultimately helped make patina great again.
Some basics for non-bronzeheads, here. Part of the allure of bronze is that it’ll never look the same way twice. The cheerful, copper-colored CuSn8 bronze we handled under the show’s lighting will soon oxidize and lose its luster with the more contact the Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 Luxury Watches has with seawater or oxygen. This eventually yields a flat, dark brown appearance that tends to vary depending on the wearing habits and environment of its wearer. The oxidization process is a natural characteristic of bronze itself, which forms over the surface of the metal, and protects the metal beneath from corrosion.
So, while the watch looks “aged,” that patina is actually an elemental shield of sorts, whose novelty of being “unique to its wearer” is almost a cliche at this point. That said, the allure is still impossible to deny, and likely the main driver still fueling the bronze trend itself. Dive with your Cheap Panerai Replica, and it’ll show characteristics more in-line with the nautical equipment that inspired its casing. Sweat from exercise, humidity from tropical regions, etc. are all catalysts in the oxidization process – which can be reversed, but never fully erased.
One detail that we appreciate with the new Panerai Replica Watches is how all the luminous plots use a creamy “aged” Super-LumiNova – a slight mismatch against the brushed bronze case in its current virgin state, but a pairing that we think will look pretty amazing after a few months of continuous wear. All of the dial text, and even the date window – utilize the same beige Pantone as the indices, yielding much more cohesive visual than the original Bronzo which used green Best Panerai Replica Watches and gray text.
Several key details persist from the original Bronzo – including the 47mm case dimensions, and the Luxury Panerai Watches-manufactured 9000-series automatic caliber which is visible beneath the titanium caseback’s sapphire window. This time around, though, the PAM 671 gets the 9010 Caliber, which is a slightly thinner movement with three more jewels than the 9000 Caliber found in the original PAM 382. Timekeeping-wise, the same 4Hz amplitude and generous 3-day power reserve can be expected.
