SIHH 2015: Up Close With The Panerai Mare Nostrum Titanio PAM603 (With Photos And Price) Replica At Lowest Price


Sandwich dials are entertaining and all, but your first Panerai Watch Review Youtube Replica more than likely had that already, along with the PAM561 is similar to your second or third at line, as I mentioned above, in which you do want something fresh at the subtleties that leave one Panerai distinct from another. The notable “8 DAYS” marking preceding six o’clock describes the P.5000 in-house grade — but until we proceed to this, only one more term (and also my only complaint with the PAM561) on legibility.The black numerals along with the black painted hands using their off-white (but not artificial classic!) Centre contrast beautifully against the white dial — the lume pips and also the center of the palms turn clearly green even when it is bright outside, the superbly excellent Panerai lume is so powerful. Stay inside for more, however, as the lume sparks (and does not receive much control 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 short. I noticed this in official pictures but even during the delight of unpacking a freshly obtained review unit, they soon stood out to me too short — and, frankly, I don’t see why this was necessary. The second hand falls way short of the track it’s by definition assumed to reach, along with the hour hand sometimes just looks “lost” from the ocean of white, coming in way too short to become even remotely near the outer edge of the dial (it hardly reaches halfway across).Perhaps more and heavier hands could have put additional strain on the motion, but if anything, an 8-day power reserve movement should have enough torque to move them light and thin hands around. I personally will go so far as to say I’d have exchanged a day or two of electricity reserve for more hands.With that, on the motion we go: dubbed the P.5000, it is but one of Panerai’s tirelessly expanding array of in-house moves and pretty much the most economical among them.

In 2010 Panerai Watches Fake Replica unveiled the first oversized Mare Nostrum chronograph (PAM300), inspired by a prototype officer’s chronograph from 1943. That is now a desirable timepiece on the secondary market, so true to form Panerai introduced the Mare Nostrum Titanio PAM603 at SIHH 2015.

Translating as “our sea”, Mare Nostrum was the Roman term for the Mediterranean Sea, coming back into vogue during the Second World War. And it was for the deck officers of the Italian Navy of WWII that the original Mare Nostrum prototypes were developed.

Aesthetically the new Mare Nostrum is very similar to the 2010 model. The case is 52 mm in diameter, with a brushed finish and a wide, flat bezel. But it is made of titanium, making it less heavy than it looks (the 2010 watch was in steel).

The dial is a dark brown with gold hands and parchment markings. Panerai does excel at recreating the look of watches from times past, and the Mare Nostrum feels very much like a vintage watch.

As with several Panerai reissue models, the numerals and markers are engraved, then filled with Super-Luminova. Notably, the chapter ring is raised, sitting a step above the centre of the dial.

Inside is the Minerva calibre 13-22, here known as the Panerai OP XXV movement. It’s a traditionally constructed and finished movement with German silver bridges. Unlike the 2010 model, however, this has a solid back, keep the movement hidden. That is a shame as like all Minerva movements it is hand-finished to a high standard, far beyond what is typical of a Panerai.

The Mare Nostrum Titanio PAM603 is limited to 300 pieces in total, with 150 pieces produced each year in 2015 and 2016. The price is €37,000 before taxes, or 58,200 Singapore dollars with 7% tax.
