Different from dull materials and black color in the past, now Panerai is more willing to use advanced materials and various colors in watch design. Forged carbon and bronze are widely used in case material of Panerai, the dial color also has more striking blue and green. For example, the PAM 688 is the first Panerai watch I saw with a blue dial, before, I only saw Panerai watches with black dial and black band or brown ASSO strap, now the entire watch is in blue color, which is very rare among Panerai collection. The replica here is a V2 edition of PAM 688 which VS factory published, it is 1:1 cloned with a genuine as reference.
The case is made of solid 316L stainless steel, it is completely polished on case, bezel and lugs, the brushed crown bridge with lever have the same operation way as genuine. Look at the case side, the outline of cushion-shaped case is very obvious, the edge of case is smoothly polished so that the watch could have a perfect wearing comfort. The case back is see-through crystal, which shows inner machine clearly, the rim of the case back is engraved with detailed material and water resistant information.
Blue dial is the finishing touch of the replica watch. The dial uses a genuine sandwiched structure, skeletonized hour markers are big and there are big arabic numbers “6” and “12”. Four hands, including the small seconds hand at 9 o’clock, have rose gold edge, which highly contrasting with the blue dial background and white stainless steel case. The GMT hand with a triangle tip in rose gold tone turns 12 hours as per genuine, not 24 hours.
Inside the case, the movement is a super clone P.9001. Coming from the same factory, P.9001 completely inherits all advantages of super clone P.9000 that was independently developed by VSF. Correct position of balance wheel, independently adjustable hour hand, date setting via hour hand, these could be completely achieved on this V2 PAM 688. The one-piece design greatly enhances the accuracy and stability of this super clone P.9001 movement.
Blue leather band features white hand stitching, the blue band exactly matches the blue dial, if you want the watch to be fitted with a black leather strap, we can ask the factory to do this favor for you. If you are looking for a Panerai watch as your first replica, please consider PAM 688, not only PAM 688 has a simple and elegant appearance like PAM 111 and PAM 127, but it is also very practical due to the GMT function.
