Panerai has introduced two new long-awaited 42mm Submersible Replica Watchesreferences with ceramic rotating bezels.The other is a handsome new-for-2019 “shark grey” colorway with a navy blue ceramic bezel that mimics the livery of the recently announced PAM 982 Submersible chronograph designed in collaboration.
Panerai Replica ceramic bezel design is particularly interesting, as the slightly raised steel five-minute markers provide a uniquely textured element to what’s usually an entirely flat ceramic surface. So for those who’ve been waiting for a properly classic but more wearable 1389, the 683 is certainly to please.
Otherwise, the chronometric performance and specifications appear to be entirely identical – and in a stylistic trend used by other Panerai copy watches, the running seconds hand at 9:00 is finished with light blue paint to delineate an in-house produced calibre.
Matching its black dial, the 683 reference comes with a black date disc, while the new 959 reference comes with a nicely color-matched grey date disc to complement the shark grey dial. Both watches are fitted with Fake Panerai 22mm rubber dive strap to match their respective bezels – the 683 in black, and the 959 in blue.
