Panerai Introduces The Paneristi 15th Anniversary Luminor PAM634 (With Specs & Pricing) Perfect Clone Online Shopping

From a purely military perspective, wearing a white dial dive watch on a assignment would possibly cause your fellow commando soldiers to smack you in the back of the head. But what the Panerai Watch Vs Breitling Replica Luminor Base 8 Days Acciaio PAM561 lacks in historical precision and stealth capabilities it makes up for by being among the more affordable, in-house-movement-equipped and refreshing-looking options in a sea of boring blue and black dial watches.Panerai might be a new only a handful of — admittedly very similar — ranges, yet it still is just one among few that have an almost unearthly power in attracting their first-time customer back for another version… and then another, and another, and so on. Therefore, I really don’t feel that the Panerai Luminor Base 8 Days Acciaio PAM561 is a standard “first Panerai” — for this, have a look at our Price of Entry informative article on the most affordable Panerai you can buy.I chosen the PAM561 specifically because I wanted to critique a Panerai that isn’t an obvious alternative but something one might in fact end up contemplating after looking at the current production line-up of this brand. Clad in a 44mm-wide Luminor case, it’s a simple, legible, and among Panerai watches, competitively priced offering which also packs a more unusual hand-wound, in-house-made movement with an 8-day power reserve.Being the simple watch it’s, there isn’t much pizzazz to get distracted by. But that just means that the fewer amount of consequently more notable elements need to work together all the greater — and, with a single notable gripe notwithstanding, they do.To this day, I stay positively baffled by how ingenious this Luminor case layout is, especially in 44mm where proportions with the dial elements I find more spot on than the 47mm. The larger case is proportionate but frequently too large to work nicely with the dial, in my view.

Panerai has announced a 500-piece limited edition Luminor Base Logo for the 15th anniversary of Paneristi, the brand’s enthusiast community website. 

Paneristi is the Panerai enthusiast website, one that has created a community, in the truest sense of the word, dedicated to Panerai. For the 15th anniversary of the site, which was founded in 2000 by Guy Verbist, Panerai has created a limited edition Luminor Base Logo (PAM00634) with a blue OP at six o’clock. The third Paneristi edition – after the PAM195, PAM360 and PAM532 – the 15th anniversary PAM634 is a Luminor equipped with the hand-wound OP I movement (which is essentially a Unitas 6497) behind a solid case back. Notably the case back is a snap-on case back, a first for a Luminor, instead of the screw-down back typical of Panerai and other dive watches. Another feature traditionalists will bemoan are the spring bars for the strap, yet another first, instead of the traditional screwed bars synonymous with Panerai.

This is the first Paneristi edition that does not have a black PVD coated case, instead the 44mm case is polished steel with “Paneristi” engraved on the crown lever.

Another feature unique to this edition is the blue OP logo at six o’clock. Though this is the first for a dial, the blue logo has been used widely in the SIHH 2015 collection on straps. And the Super-Luminova on the dial is ivory, approximating the look of tritium-dial, Pre-Vendome Panerai watches from the 1990s. The PAM634 is limited to 500 pieces with a retail price os US$4200, which is slightly less than the US$4900 retail price of the PAM000 “logo”, the equivalent watch from the regular collection. Intended primarily for active members of Paneristi, the PAM634 order process can be found on the forum. Source: Paneristi  Update June 29, 2015: Edited to include snap-on back and spring bars.
