Pre-SIHH 2015: Introducing The Panerai Luminor 1950 Sealand Year of the Goat PAM848 (With Specs And Price) Perfect Clone Online Shopping


Sandwich dials are fun and all, but your very first Panerai Watches Models Replica more than probably had that previously, along with the PAM561 is more like your second or third in the line, as I mentioned above, in which you do want something fresh in the subtleties that render you Panerai distinct from the other. The prominent “8 DAYS” indicating preceding six o’clock refers to the P.5000 in-house grade — but before we proceed to this, just one more term (and also my only gripe with the PAM561) on legibility.The black numerals along with the black painted palms using their off-white (although not artificial classic!) Centre contrast beautifully against the sharp white dial — the lume pips and the center of the hands turn noticeably green if it is bright outside, the famously excellent Panerai lume is indeed strong. Stay inside for longer, however, and as the lume sparks (and does not receive much charge from ambient lights), these elements go back to being white.Everlastingly good colour comparison aside, but the only two palms on the PAM561 are just way too brief. I noticed that in official images but through the delight of unpacking a freshly received inspection unit, they stood out for me too brief — and, honestly, I don’t see why this was necessary. The second hand falls way short of the track it’s by definition supposed to reach, and the hour hand sometimes only looks “lost” in the ocean of white, coming in way too brief to become even remotely close to the outer edge of the dial (it hardly reaches halfway across).Perhaps more and thicker palms could have put extra strain on the motion, but if anything else, an 8-day power reserve movement should have sufficient torque to move these light and thin hands round. I goes so far as to say I’d have exchanged a day or two of power reserve for more hands.With that, on the motion we proceed: dubbed the P.5000, it is one of Panerai’s tirelessly expanding array of in-house movements and pretty much the most affordable among them.

Panerai continues its series of annual Sealand editions dedicated to the Chinese Zodiac with the Luminor 1950 Sealand Year of the Goat (PAM00848), featuring a hunter case decorated with gold-inlaid hand-engraving.

Fitted with distinctive flip covers over the dial, the hunter cases of Panerai Luminor Sealand watches are a perfect canvas for engraving. To be officially unveiled at SIHH, the 2015 edition of the Luminor 1950 Sealand is dedicated to the Year of the Goat, the seventh in an annual edition for each year’s Chinese Zodiac and also the first in the Luminor 1950 case. While most of the earlier Sealand watches were engraved by Purdey, the maker of precious hunting rifles, Panerai Watches Nottingham Replica now turns to Italian craftsman for the gold-inlaid engraving. The steel lid is first engraved by hand, and then fine gold wires are beaten into the grooves of the engraving until the image is formed in gold.

The inside of the lid has a little mirror, and beneath it is a steel grey dial that differs from the typical Panerai look. Minimalist with just a “12”, the dial has black baton indices with tiny luminous dots.

Unusually, the Luminor 1950 Sealand Year of the Goat is the first Sealand watch to use the Luminor 1950 case as well as an in-house movement, the P.9000. Earlier Sealand editions used the standard 44 mm Luminor case which lacks the more complex form of the 1950. Those were also powered by a simple Unitas movement.

Available only at Panerai boutiques and produced in an edition of just 100 watches, the Luminor 1950 Sealand Year of the Goat is priced at 32,500 Singapore dollars, which is equivalent to about US$26,000. Panerai isn’t alone with a Chinese Zodiac-themed timepiece, Vacheron Constantin will also present a Year of the Goat edition at SIHH 2015.
