Panerai is highly recognizable due to its big-size dial, it is loved by many watch fans. In the past, Panerai served as the military watch of the Italian Royal Navy, now the modern Panerai watches still look tough and strong. Big dial and crown bridge are iconic features of Panerai. However, the Panerai watch we are going to talk about is special, it belongs to Radiomir series and does not have large crown bridge. Its reference number is PAM00388, rounded case looks like onion. Black dial uses sandwiched structure, at 12, 6 and 9 o’clock, there are exaggerated Arabic numbers, the case diameter is 45mm, very suitable to be worn as a sporty watch or dress watch. Today, I want to introduce one replica PAM 388 made by VS factory, which is also known as XF, KW or V6. This replica PAM 388 is the latest V2 edition.
Put this replica next to a genuine, you will hardly know which one is real and which one is a replica. In outlook, the VS PAM 388 replica looks exactly the same as genuine.
Like genuine watch, the case has a 45mm diameter, in design, the replica has a very close profile and construction to original. The Radiomir PAM 388 uses classic wire lugs, which pay a tribute to these vintage Radiomir Panerai watches published in old times. The use of wire lugs even makes the case look more rounded and smooth.
The replica uses sapphire crystal with ar coating, under sunlight, you can read the time from dial clearly. The crystal face has a good transparency.
About movement, the Panerai Radiomir Black Seal PAM 388 replica is equipped with a Super Clone P.9000 movement, through the crystal back, you can see that the balance wheel was changed to 7:00 position, which is the same as original, other incorrect versions set the balance wheel at 6 or 11 o’clock. So, the appearance defect was thoroughly solved in this Super Clone P.9000 movement, this is a a big reward to XF factory, because they spent almost two years to research and develop this movement. Each component was imported from the Switzerland and assembled by skilled watch master in XF factory. The inaccuracy was controled within 8 seconds. Do you know the standard for Swiss watches? It is acceptable within 15 seconds.
