First of all, a Happy Chinese New Year to all our readers! Panerai enjoys a strong following in Asia and for the past seven years have released special edition watches to commemorate the Chinese Zodiac. The Chinese Zodiac is made up of 12 animals, corresponding to a 12-year cycle. Chinese New Year began yesterday on February 8, 2016, and it marks the start of the Year of the Monkey. So, in keeping with tradition, Panerai has released the new Panerai Luminor 1950 Sealand 3 Days Automatic Acciaio (PAM 850) which pays tribute to this new year and this special animal.
According to Chinese tradition, the Monkey symbolizes intelligence, optimism, and confidence, and the first thing that will strike readers about the new Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Titanio Dlc Replica Luminor 1950 Sealand 3 Days Automatic Acciaio is the instantly recognizable hunter-style case which is used on many Panerai Sealand watches. On this watch, the flip cover has been elaborately decorated with an exquisite engraving of the Monkey.
Each cover is entirely hand-engraved by skilled Italian craftsmen, who have to lay numerous thin threads of gold in the engraved steel to embellish the image of the monkey and the accompanying flora. You can imagine how laborious this task is. The flip cover opens upwards with the hinge at 12 o’clock, and opening it reveals a sapphire crystal and a grey dial that is unlike what you see on most other Panerai Luminor 1950 Ebay Replica watches. We don’t have an exact image of the dial, but the above image from the PAM849 matches the same description. There’s a running seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock and a date window at 3 o’clock. The rest of the case is a 44mm Luminor 1950 case made out of stainless steel and water-resistant to 100 meters.
Design of this timepiece reassembles what’s finest in Panerai’s DNA. Sandwich dial, i.e. layered dial, in which, coated with luminous cloth bottom layer is visible through slots cut to the top black layer, together with its basic functions which makes it one of the very readable watches I’ve observed. In addition to that, identifying for Luminor line crown’s protecting device with a little lever, a great huge leather strap ended using a buckle with Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 Carbotech Pam 616 Replica written on it, classic gold-tone hands and 1950’s shaped instance. The distinction is that the one out of the unit that is reviewed, except for the brushed crown cover, it’s all polished, hence, it’s more likely to get scratched, however I have to state that be as it could, tough men’s view, it gives it more personality. Speaking about scratches, it’s impossible not to mention concerning the element drawing most attention, thick, convex crystal made from Plexiglass, which is regarded as far less scratch-resistant than sapphire-glass. The question is why was not it used then? The answer is obvious after spending a few moments with the ticker and seeming a bit further into its origin. First of all, it pertains to the times, when sapphire elements were not being used. Despite the fact that already fair-sized PAM has come to be much thicker and less scratch-immune (it needs to be stated that those scratches are quite easy to remove by polishing them) I accept such mix, though, as a perfectionist I’d like to see ideal units.As much as the shape is concerned, Luminor 1950 3 Days has received so called cushion-shaped case, reassembling a little cushion, correlated rather with much more tasteful watches out of Radiomir line. 1 thing is certain, if you expect it to match under the cuff of the shirt, you may be disappointed.
