Nowadays, big watch is very popular, Panerai is the brand that exactly meets this trend. A lot of watch fans like Panerai, not only because of its rich history as a military watch for the Italy Navy, but also its tough and strong design attracts them deeply. If you love Panerai but do not have an enough budget, there are some entry-level models at much more affordable prices, they are PAM 005, PAM 111 and PAM 127. When it comes to our fake watch industry, these entry-level PAMs are also the models which various factories are willing to replicate, because they could be completed in a very high quality level, just like the replica Panerai PAM 127 made by Noob factory, we have given its review before. Today, I want to introduce another good replica Panerai watch from Noob, it reference number is PAM00111. Actually Noob made the replica of this Panerai watch six or eight years ago, they improved the dial details and movement of the replica every year, so now this V4 edition is the ultimate version of PAM 111 which Noob released in 2018. Every reader here who is interested in buying a Panerai replica watch wants me to recommend one for them, I will absolutely advise them to buy PAM 111 or PAM 127, because they have been 100% the same as original.
Let’s talk about the movement first. Genuine PAM 111 is equipped with Swiss ETA 6497, while this movement has been discontinued in production for many years. Now even some dealers online claimed that their Panerai PAM 111 replica uses a real Swiss ETA 6497, they are cheating you. The Noob V4 PAM 111 is equipped with an Asia ETA 6497-2, which is based on a Chinese manual winding movement. Noob installed new plates for this movement, the plates have been molded according to genuine ETA 6497, so their shape and decoration are very closest to genuine. Look at the dagger swan neck regulator, it is set in the right position and works the same way as that of genuine ETA 6497. Blue letters such as “OFFICINE PANERAI” are engraved on the plate first, then are filled with blue ink. Having been tested for years, this Asia ETA 6497-2 works very stable and is considered to be the best manual winding movement used in replica watches.
The case is made of 316L stainless steel, case diameter is measured to be in 44mm. The iconic crown bridge is eye-catching. The case, including bezel and lugs, is polished. While the crown bridge on right side is brushed. The replica follows 1:1 case design and finish, the crown is pressed down by the lever tight, crown tube has the same construction as genuine PAM 111, so the 1:1 case design on the replica PAM 111 guarantees a perfect water resistance. Case back is polygonal, it is screwed down and the central crystal uses sapphire. I have seen a lot of Panerai replica watches, including Luminor Submersible PAM 382, I do not suggest you wear these replicas PAMs when washing your hands or swimming, but for this Noob V4 PAM 111, it is not a problem for you to wear it when swimming, you can even dive with it.
The crystal is Sapphire, like genuine, the crystal face features colorless AR Coating on one side. The dial is black in sandwiched, no date function. Small second hand is working on the subdial at 9 o’clock. The dial has a strong green lume, I have checked the replica’s dial lume at night, its color and intensity are very close to that of genuine dial. Noob factory claimed that they use genuine Super-LumiNova C1+C3.
The band is made of genuine brown calf leather, it is fitted with a polished pin buckle that is engraved with word “PANERAI” in correct depth.
Do not wait now, this PAM 111 replica from Noob is the best version in our market. I think in the future Noob will not publish any improved edition any more. The stocks of Noob V4 PAM 111 will last.
