Panerai Radiomir 1940 3 Days GMT Automatic Acciaio Brown Dial Replica Watches UK

For 2016, there’s an emphasis from Panerai replica watches UK on growing its popular Radiomir 1940 collection. There are 4 new GMT models and, as is expected with Panerai, they all retain the classic and bold look from the brand. The 1940 line is essentially a hybrid combination of the Radiomir and Luminor watches, and is popular amongst Paneristi for this reason. New this year are four models featuring the GMT complication. These would also be the first Radiomir 1940 models to feature the GMT complication that aren’t Special Edition pieces – Panerai-speak for limited edition watches. Let’s take a look at the Panerai Radiomir 1940 3 Days GMT Automatic Acciaio and the Panerai Radiomir 1940 3 Days GMT Power Reserve Automatic Acciaio watches.

To break things down, there are two distinct versions and each will be available with two different types of dial. The two models in question are the aforementioned Panerai Radiomir 1940 3 Days GMT Automatic Acciaio fake watches and the Panerai Radiomir 1940 3 Days GMT Power Reserve Automatic Acciaio (by the way, acciaio is just Italian for “steel”). Essentially, the difference between the two is that one has a power reserve display on the dial while the other doesn’t. Price difference between the power reserve and non-power reserve models is only $200 so it’s really about the aesthetics for most buyers. Either way, it’s hard to really go wrong.

All four models will feature 45mm steel  case replica Panerai watches Radiomir 1940 style cases. Each model also comes in two dial variants, one with what Panerai calls “Paris hobnails” and the other with vertical stripes in relief. The two Panerai Radiomir 1940 3 Days GMT Automatic Acciaio models are the PAM 627 (with Paris hobnail) and the PAM 657 (with vertical stripes). While the other two Panerai Radiomir 1940 3 Days GMT Power Reserve Automatic Acciaio models are the PAM 628 (with Paris hobnail) and the PAM 658 (with vertical stripes). Personally, I think both add a textural pop to the dial that is brilliant in its simplicity and effective in its execution. Really one of my favorite visual touches from the brand.
The two Panerai Radiomir 1940 3 Days GMT Automatic Acciaio watches will both be powered by the new P.4001 movement, while the Radiomir 1940 3 Days GMT Power Reserve Automatic Acciaio watches are powered by the P. 4002. Both the movements are derived from the automatic P.4000 movement. Features of the P.4000 movements include: off-center micro rotor that rotates in both directions; 3-day power reserve stored in two spring barrels linked in series; and a balance-stopping mechanism. As for new functions, there is a date, GMT function, and am/pm indication on the small seconds dial. Both movements are the same, with the exception that the P.4002 has a power reserve where the P.4001 does not. On a visual note, I love how Panerai adds the dodecagonal (12-sided) case back, it really adds such a cool touch.

Panerai replica watches UK can often get some flack for producing watches that are a bit too similar looking through their model lines, which can often make it hard for a “non-Paneristi” to actually distinguish between many of them. This year at SIHH, Panerai debuted four new Radiomir 1940 GMT watches, but they also released another Radiomir 1940 watch that is actually a “first” for the brand. The first white dial Radiomir 1940 watch. It’s a great-looking piece that will have appeal to the Paneristi who wants something a little different in their collection, fans of white-dial watches, or people who just appreciate great design.

Personally, I find the size of 42mm watchcase Panerai fake watches to be a sweet spot, and I’m really glad Panerai chose to bring the white dial to a watch as broadly appealing and wearable as this Radiomir 1940 3 Days Automatic Acciaio. I also appreciate that it’s just under 11mm high on the wrist, giving it presence without being blocky.

The familiar cushion-shaped case is complete with off-center small seconds dial at 9 o’clock and numeric indicators for the hours. Something I really love about some of their white-dialed watches is Panerai’s decision to use dots and numerical indicators for the 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, and 10 o’clock positions. Scanning the circumference of the dial almost makes it look like the 12, 3, and 6 o’clock indicators are popping out as if viewing from a magnifying glass. Fortunately, legibility on the dial is not affected by using the white dial and it’s easy to read.

Through the sapphire case back you’ll get a view of the in-house P.4000 movement, which operates at 28,800 vph (4 Hz). As the name suggests, the Panerai Radiomir 1940 3 Days Automatic Acciaio replica watch has a three-day power reserve, which will be the minimum power reserve on all forthcoming in-house movements by Panerai. As David noted when the watch was announced, this is a great minimum power reserve because you can leave your watch off for a weekend and come back with it still ticking. It’s an actual practical benefit to have this, so it would be sagacious for other brands to follow suit.
One reason why fans of Panerai get hooked on the brand is due to the distinctive and unmistakable styling that’s shared by the Luminor and Radiomir lines, as well as the Luminor 1950 and Radiomir 1940 lines. The dark dial is definitely a part of the “Panerai look” and, as I mentioned before, I find it unlikely that someone will get this as their first Panerai. Rather, it’ll probably add to a collection. Then again, it could draw in buyers who were on the fence but prefer the white dial a lot more. This is when you know the design is successful; it’s familiar, yet unique to the brand’s aesthetic, but still has a wide appeal to the larger watch buying community.
