VS Factory V3 Edition Replica Panerai PAM 505 Radiomir Black Seal Ceramic Watch with Super Clone P.9000

Replica Panerai Radiomir Black Seal

Most popular Panerai watches are the ones with Luminor case. Radiomir is not that popular as Luminor Panerai. However, in the development of Panerai, Radiomir even played a more important role. It is the prototype of modern Luminor Panerai, if you want to find some trace related to Panerai’s richest history as a military watch for the Italy Navy, then you should buy a Panerai Radiomir watch. Today, the replica Panerai watch I am going to review is made by VS factory, which has been specilized in manufacturing good quality PAMs for years. This black Radiomir Black Seal ceramic watch has a reference number PAM 505. It is the latest V3 edition that was published by VSF in the end of 2018.

Genuine watch uses a composite material, which is not only ceramic. However, this replica PAM 505 uses an entire piece of ceramic in case construction. The sandblasted finish on the cushion-shaped case feels high quality texture. Onion-shaped crown is so big, you will feel very comfortable when rotating it to adjust hands or date. The crown features a classic OP Logo on the front. Wire lugs are one classic feature of Radiomir, they are removable.

Black dial is sandwiched, the upper plate has skeleton hour markers in stick shape, except Arabic numbers at 6, 9 and 12 o’clock. the sand finish of the black dial is the same as ceramic case. Small seconds hand on the subdial at 9 o’clock runs smoothly, it is applied with Swiss luminous material like central two hands. The printings on the dial have been improved on this V3 edition, I am not afraid you compare the dial with genuine watch, because there are really no flaws you can find.

PAM 505 ASSO Band

The movement is super clone P.9000, which is an in-house caliber by VSF. This movement has been improved by VSF for many times since its first release several years ago, now I do not know whether the factory will still update it or not, but it really has been very perfect. Super Clone P.9000 has many advantages, you could not even tell it from a genuine Cal.P.9000, besides, its inaccuracy is controled within eight seconds.

PAM 505 Crystal Back

I do not like the brown ASSO band on this PAM 505. I think one pair of black leather straps will be more suitable. However, with such a retro style Pre-V buckle, the distressed ASSO band is a perfection for this watch. Without crown bridge, the PAM 505 still has a large size, its diameter is up to 45mm, exactly meets our favor for big-size watches.

Noob, GMF, BP, EW and ARF are those factories that have appeared frequently in recent months, now Noob published the V9 edition of their Submariner and GMT-Master II, ARF is the only factory that could keep the pace of Noob. However, during this period, I rarely heard that there were new Panerai replica watches published in our market, now the watch world is Rolex, no new PAMs. So, if you want to buy the newest replicas of Panerai models published at SIHH 2019, you will need to wait for some time.

The dome-shaped crystal is sapphire with colorless AR coating, so, whether you see the dial from any angle, the dial will be clearly readable, even under the sun. Genuine PAM 359 also has such type of domed sapphire crystal. The whole piece of sapphire crystal can fit the case very well, no water is able to penetrate into, you can wear the watch when swimming, do not worry.

The dial is classic sandwiched style, it is in matt black. The hour markers are skeleton Arabic numerals and the disc below is fully applied with Swiss lume material. The markers at 6, 9 and 12 o’clock are larger than other hour markers. Panerai is a very stylish sports watch, while this type of dial makes PAM 359 look a little formal. Small second hand is on the subdial positioned at 9 o’clock, while at 3 o’clock, there is a very small date window that looks elegant.

VSF P.9000 Movement

The movement inside is Super Clone P.9000, which was independently developed by VS factory. The whole movement is not based on a Chinese movement, VS factory bought each original watch component from the Switzerland and assembled them in their own factory, so this Super Clone P.9000 is almost the same as genuine, it has a balance wheel whose position is the same as genuine P.9000.

The tough case and angular style make Panerai so unique in Swiss watch industry. The Panerai PAM 508 replica from VS factory inherited the iconic outlook features of Panerai. 47mm case, plus crown bridge, only one word can describe this watch, that is “big”. Like genuine, the replica uses black ceramic as case material, then it is matte finished. The bezel also adopts black ceramic like case, the uni-directional rotating bezel has a luminous pearl and diving markers. Panerai printed the case material name “Ceramica” on its dial. Previous PAM 508 and PAM 441 made in replica watch market did not use real ceramic material, they used stainles steel and then have DLC black coating on surface, now, with the rapid development of watch-making technology, ceramic is widely used by replica watches. Please check the crown bridge, its arc is done perfectly. The round edge of the bezel pearl is a bit higher than the luminescence filled inside, this could give a full protection for the luminous material.

Black dial has three-dimensional hour markers that are filled with Super-LumiNova, so are skeletonized hour and minute hands. Small seconds subdial is positioned at 9 o’clock, the small hand and bar-shaped markers on that subdial are also applied with Super-LumiNova, so in weak or dark light condition, you can still read the time from the dial clearly. Above the black dial, it is a very thick sapphire crystal, which has been coated with colorless AR Coating like genuine PAM 508. The length and width of hour and minute hands are also the same as genuine.

VS Factory V3 Edition Replica Panerai PAM 389 Luminor Submersible Titanium Case with Super Clone P.9000 Movement

Replica Panerai Luminor Submersible PAM 389

PAM 389, a fusion watch that adopts titanium, ceramic and rubber materials, its movement is the famous Panerai P.9000 Caliber, the watch has a sapphire crystal and brushed titanium case. PAM 389 has antimagnetic inner case to ensure the watch can work accurately. In the movie The Expendables 3, Sylvester Stallone and his teammates were exactly wearing PAM 389, so this watch was sold very well at that time. 47mm big case was exactly built for those tough guy. The dial is very simple and clean, bar-shaped hour markers are superlumed, 9:00 small seconds subdial is classic, P.9000 movement can offer the watch 72-hour power reserve. About this popular Panerai watch, there have already been a replica made by VS factory before, today, the one I am going to give a review is the V3 edition of the replica Panerai PAM 389 by VS factory, whether in outlook or functions, this replica is now closer to genuine.

The case of PAM 389 replica is made of solid Titanium, it is brushed, the Titanium case looks a bit darker than stainless steel. The bezel is uni-directional rotating, it uses a black ceramic insert, there are silver stud markers on the bezel, at 12 o’clock, there is a round pearl that is fully filled with luminescence. Case back is solid Titanium and has correct engravings that look so delicate. PAM 389 has a solid case back, I think this is also one reason why its replica is more popular than other Luminor Submersible replicas with see-through back.

On black dial, all three-dimensional hour markers are filled with genuine Super-LumiNova, hand are also applied with Super-LumiNova, together with bezel pearl, they will emit a strong green light in dark light condition. The grey dial printing “Amagnetic” under “LUMINOR SUBMERSIBLE” means genuine watch has an anti-magnetic performance. However, when you open the case back of this replica, you will find a piece of soft iron between the case back and movement, so I think this metal is placed here to prevent the movement from being affected by magnetic fields.

About the Super Clone P.9000 in this Panerai PAM 389 replica, it is the best P.9000 in the market developed by VS factory. With this movement, the hour hand now could be independently adjusted, you can turn it clockwise or anti-clockwise to adjust hours or date, the adjusting way is the same as genuine P.9000 Caliber. Besides, the balance wheel position is changed to be at 7 o’clock, other incorrect versions place the balance wheel at 10 or 6 o’clock. So, the appearance defect of clone P.9000 movement made before was completely solved. From production to assembly, each Super Clone P.9000 movement in VS factory will pass through a lot of tests, finally the daily inaccuracy is controled within 8 seconds.

VS Factory V2 Edition Replica Panerai PAM 616 Luminor Submersible Carbotech with Clone P.9000 Movement

Replica Panerai PAM 616

Certainly, in automatic watch field, Rolex Submariner is the most popular diving watch, I agree with this point of view, its superior stability and accuracy have won a lot of praise from amateur and professional divers. Rolex and Panerai are two of my most favorite watch brands, while they differentiate from each other greatly. Rolex has a wide product line that covers production of dress watches and a lot of functional watches like diver’s watches, GMT and explorer watches. While as a military watch specially made for the Italy Navy, Panerai is born to be a diving watch, whether its Luminor, Radiomir or Luminor Submersible, these Panerai models all integrate the design elements of diver’s watches. Besides, compared with Submariner, Panerai uses more advanced materials in the making of Luminor Submersible, in recent years, they added bronze and carbon two new materials in the design of Luminor Submersible. I think this is also the reason why more and more watch fans choose to wear Panerai.

Today, I want to give a review on a replica Panerai Luminor Submersible watch that has a very cool outlook. Its reference is PAM 616. The replica watch is made by VS factory and this is the V2 upgraded version, which was just published in December, 2018. The genuine watch is made of new material Carbotech Panerai developed, while the replica has a case that is fully made of forged carbon, which has detailed and grained textures like genuine Carbotech case. Forged carbon is light in weight but highly scratch resistant. You can find these unique patterns are more obvious on the case side. The case back is blackened metal, it is solid and engraved with a lot of information, which includes the special S.L.C. logo.

PANERAI CARBOTECH

Black dial has a good matte texture. There are big 12 and 6 numeral markers, other hour markers are small dots with blackened metal edge. The dial does not have too many things to talk, the things that attract me most are the light blue small second hand and “CARBOTECH” printing. The small square window opened at 3 o’clock features white date font in black background. By the way, all hour markers and hands are applied with Swiss grade Patina Superlume, the dial lume is authentic green, strong and long lasting.

The Panerai PAM 616 replica uses a black rubber band, the factory also offers one pair of blue leather straps for free. The Pre-V buckle fitted on the band has black PVD coating processing. Rubber band is the best match of this Panerai Luminor Submersible watch because it is dustproof and waterproof, more convenient to wear than the leather band. A lot of tough men love to wear Panerai watch, Sylvester Stallone is a big fan of Panerai and the Rock Dwayne Johnson wore this PAM 616 in movie Fast 8.

At last, the replica is an upgraded version from V1 edition, its time could be independently adjusted, while the date needs to be adjusted through hour hand. The time and date adjustment is the same as genuine.

VS Factory V2 Edition Replica Panerai PAM 382 Luminor Submersible Bronzo Green Dial with Super Clone P.9000

Panerai Luminor Submersible Bronzo Replica

We usually see stainless steel watches, but Bronze is seldom used in watch making. Bronze material was used several years ago in watch industry, but was soon abandoned because it will be oxidized. In 2011, Panerai made an amazing move and unveiled PAM 382, which is the first Panerai watch that adopted Bronze in case material. The Bronzo watch PAM 382 was hotly sought after at that time, at the beginning, Panerai only released 250 pieces, but too many people ordered it, so they finally decided to set the limit number to 1000 pieces, but were also sold out immediately. You know, if a watch became more and more popular, it will not escape the fate of being copied, so, PAM 382 was immediately replicated by a lot of factories after its appearance, however, these replicas of PAM 382 were not in the highest quality until VS factory released their edition. In the history of PAM 382 replica that was produced by VS, there are two versions, the one I will review here is the latest V2, it is currently the best replica PAM 382 you can find on the internet.

Upon V1, VS made some great changes on the movement. First, the balance wheel is set in a correct position, which is at 7 o’clock, the plate, which has a balance wheel on, is also positioned in the right position, just like genuine. Second, in polishing, VS watch masters disassemble each component of the movement and polish them separately. After doing the two things above, the movement could look 100% the same as genuine in outlook. In replica watch industry, clone P.9000 has a rich history, it firstly appeared in our market 3 years ago, before the release of this Super Clone P.9000 of VS factory, this movement has been tested for several years, it has already been the most stable clone P-series movement equipped in replica Panerai watches. Now after being improved by VS, the movement inaccuracy is controled within 8 seconds. Having talked too much about the movement, let us check other details of the replica.

47mm case originally looks very big, Bronze makes the watch look stronger and tough. Case material uses solid Bronze, it is completely brushed. As time goes by, the case will also oxidize to become more time honoured. Although the watch has a very rough appearance, its details are processed delicately. The bezel pearl at 12 o’clock is fully filled wih luminous material, it will emit a green light like hour markers and hands on the dial. Bezel engravings have a correct depth and they are blackened, bezel studs have the same height as those on genuine wach. See the case from side, its cushion shape is more obvious, crown bridge has scratch-resistant brushed face, the lever must be pulled up when you need to wind the watch, adjust time or date. Do not forget to pull down the lever before washing your hand or going to a pool.

Panerai Luminor Submersible PAM 382 replica has a green dial, which perfectly matches the Bronzo theme of PAM 382. Green color is a great parter of Bronze tone. Wide hour and minute hands are on the center, small second hand is positioned on the subdial at 9 o’clock. Both hands and markers have been coated with Superluminova C3. The edge of hour markers and hands is in rose gold, compared with V1 PAM 382, the hour markers and hands of V2 PAM 382 have a thinner edge, so their center can be filled with more Superluminova C3, this could guarantee the dial has a stronger and more durable lume effect.
