Pre-SIHH 2015: Introducing The Panerai Luminor 1950 Sealand Year of the Goat PAM848 (With Specs And Price) Replica Watches Essentials

Typical Panerai Watches Pre Owned Replica treats include the reassuringly snappy crown guard lever — that I liked to fiddle with whenever I had a short moment to spare in a queue or on public transportation. It’s something that I find myself reaching and disappointedly not discovering after strapping on different watches. Also appreciated was the 24mm lug width which opens up a nearly infinite supply of strap options.Panerai will sell you calf and buffalo leather straps from CHF 220 going around CHF 360 for alligator ones. But honestly, now, there is such a vast selection of aftermarket straps which you would be highly encouraged to shop around there (and support those men, as well). If anything, this black-on-black option I think is somewhat secure and dull, particularly because this white dial variation is all about more vibrant colours and pushing regular, secure aesthetics into the side a bit. Aside from looks, wearability is as great as it always is with a Panerai, as the watch is held firm and secure thanks to its ample width, thickness, and rigidity of the strap and its massive, Panerai-marked pin buckle.The dial is much more unusual not just in its colour but also in its mark, together with Arabic numerals all around (unlike a more typical Panerai dials that only have numerals for 12, 6, 3, and 9 with baton markers anyplace else) and an additional plus, again, sexier 60-minute track on the periphery. The numerals aren’t lumed, only the hands and the pips on the periphery of the dial are.

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 Fake 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.
