Panerai is pretty regular about their watch release schedule. We tend to get a few new ones each year. With the pre Basel announcements coming up, I expect to see a lot from Panerai Luminor Submersible Chrono 1000m Pam 187 Replica this year. One new announcement is the Luminor Chrono Daylight Titanium, which is the ref. PAM 327. This Panerai is distinctly modern in its approach with a broad demographic appeal. I am no Panerai historian, but it is easy to tell that there is mostly “new direction” design accents in this watch. Ignoring the watch itself for a moment, looking at the titanium bracelet indicates a new, more angular look to the masculine watches. Older Panerai metal bracelets featured some really unique curved links. The PAM 327 has what are arguably something simple, plainer Y-shaped links. The look in nice, but not exciting – and the small size of the links adds to wearing comfort, but gone is a lot of the character.
The instance,Panerai Daylight includes an oversized dial that’s readily recognizable to most watch connoisseurs. It isn’t simply the 44 millimeter diameter which makes a statement, but also the round complete shapes that define a bold and confident look. The rocky brushed steel with polished edges of this situation is complemented with a likewise crafted winding crown protected by an arched stainless steel crown shield, a slick steel bezel with a tachymeter scale plus a screw down case back that seals the watch up to depths of 100 meters. This stunning case is also adorned with a brilliant 2.5 mm thick sapphire crystal that’s topped with an anti-reflective coating. Similarly, my fake watch’s case is manufactured from solid stainless steel, has the winding crown with identic crown shield, a sturdy Tachymeter bezel and a scratch proof sapphire crystal. There aren’t any noticeable differences between the look and feel of my copy as well as the ones of the first Panerai Luminor Daylight.The Movement,Panerai has built one of its finest models- the Luminor Chrono Daylight- with a high grade automatic mechanical movement called Panerai OP XII caliber. It’s an outstanding mechanism that features 27 stones, 131/4 lignes, 28,800 alternations/hour, Glucydur® balance, Incabloc anti-shock device and a 46 hours power reserve. Some of its greatest highlights are the Panerai personalized oscillating weight, the Côtes de Genève decoration on the bridges as well as the Chronometer Certificate (C.O.S.C.). As any self-respecting Swiss made watch with an amazing heritage and prestige, this Panerai offers maximum functionality due to its chronograph with three counters and tachymeter scale. I am aware that my Daylight replica watch does not arrive with the same radical automatic motion, but following extensive tests I have concluded it’s too equipped with an excellent quality mechanism that provides very good time accuracy, a reasonable power reserve and dependability. I am quite delighted by it.
The dial itself shows the metallic blue that people go crazy over. It is a great color, and when done right makes for a beautiful watch. The Sinn 203 Arktis was one of the first to use such a blue dial, and since then a few have displayed it. I am not sure why the watch is known as the “Daylight.” I am guessing that since blue faced models are often arctic themed, the name refers to the fact that such polar locations of the Earth experience far more daylight, especially in the summer. The little touches are also nice, like the matching colored date window disc, and the easy to read chronograph seconds hand.
Inside is a Panerai Luminor Chrono Pam 00251 Replica caliber OPXII automatic chronograph movement. It isn’t in-house made though. Gladly the movement is a certified Chronometer, but Panerai has neglected to mention this on the face. This is a positive or negative trait depending on whom you ask (some people do or don’t like lots of text on the face). From a design standpoint, the tri-compax chronograph layout and overall face design is no nonsense. So practical and utilitarian, you might forget it is a Panerai. That isn’t to say it isn’t nice, but this is of the most function oriented Panerai watches I have ever seen. The 44mm wide case is standard Panerai size, and the titanium used to make the case and bracelet ensures light weight even though the hefty package. The Panerai Luminor Chrono Daylight Titanium is an excellent watch for the conservative watch lover who values function and is drawn by the Panerai name.

Inside is a Luminor Panerai Chrono 1000 Price Replica standard OPXII automatic chronograph movement. It isn’t in-house created though. Thankfully the motion is really a licensed Chronometer, but Panerai has forgot to mention this apparently. This is in fact an optimistic or negative trait based on which you request (lots of people do or can not stand lots of text apparently). From the design perspective, the tri-compax chronograph layout and overall face design is not any crap. So practical and utilitarian, you might forget it’s a Panerai. That is not to say it isn’t fine, however that is of the very most function oriented Panerai watches I have ever seen. The 44mm wide situation is standard Panerai dimensions, and additionally the titanium used to create the bracelet and case guarantees lightweight in spite of the fact that the hefty package. So, do you like this opinion, it look classic and wonderful. The Panerai Luminor Chrono Daylight Titanium is a superb watch out for the conservative watch lover who appreciates function and it is drawn throughout the Panerai title. I believe that it must be a great investment. Watch lovers, why don’t you go and receive one?The PANERAI Only auction at Artcurial on December 8, 2014 broke two world records as well as the 29 batches which were sold out of the 69 presented made $1,250,000. In the meantime, the “Paneristi” neighborhood is, as usual, awaiting this season’s SIHH impatiently. Even the “Pannies”, as their aficionados like to call them, definitely know how to play hard to get. In Panerai, Italian design and the honor of becoming a distinguished brand are undoubtedly vying with all the creativity of the economic model, based on creating small series. This is enough to stir the desire and emotions of a public which has already been conquered by the progressive evolution of old versions.
The second hand to the chronograph on this watch is interesting. While the remaining palms are a matte black with Lume on these, the second hand to the chrono is a glistening silver metal color, compared to the brushed stainless which the rest of the watch has. . It doesn’t look too from place.As you may see, the strap is held in using the usual Panerai screw pins. The strap supplied with this model is that the Black Croco on Deployant, with an extra Rubber strap.I feel that the dimensions fits my Windows 7″ wrist flawlessly, and highly recommend this watch to anyone considering a slightly more complex Panerai, that isn’t always interested in their historic models.Frowned upon or loved… that the PAM236 may not function as the watch that lots of Paneristi will get excited about, but it’s actually a really nice wristwatch. Panerai’s loyal group of enthusiastic followers will lean more towards the Panerai watches using a simple dial and few functions. The watches that are more comparable to the first historical watches to speak. This chronograph obviously is a different beast entirely, but it screams Panerai nonetheless.The view was initially introduced at the Panerai Contemporary lineup in 2006 (I show). As opposed to the new Manifattura chronos and other more recent versions – the present model of the 236 still gets the square push buttons to the chronograph functions. And it still has the old fashion solid-chunk-of-metal bracelet. If you want to actually feel that you’re wearing a wristwatch, then you’ll love the 236 with no doubt. I personally love its weight and its own strong look and feel. And it is such an eye catcher.
Take a look at the 2 pictures below to see the difference between the old fashion bracelet on the left, as well as the new style bracelet of the PAM327 about the right. Both necklaces are fitted with a deployant (folding grip). Note that the 236 includes a solid steel necklace while the bracelet of this 327 is made of titanium (click on the photos for a larger version). ‘ve heard somebody say that the PAM236 is a bracelet on a wristwatch and the PAM327 is an eye on a bracelet. Maybe that really does sum it up, but I’m not sure which of both is a great or a bad thing. I’ve had the chance to test on both these watches when I was taking the photos and I would really have difficulty deciding which one I like best. Clearly these are two very different watches but I am referring to this bracelet here.Click here to read my previous post about the new titanium PAM327 Luminor Chrono Daylight.I particularly enjoy the large photo at the top of the post. Due to how the colour on the bracelet is mirrored on the watch out of the rope. But due to the way the shallow depth-of-field nicely blurs the background and also brings immediate attention to the dial and bezel. I left that shot with 2 off-camera speedlights, a shutter speed of 1/60th and the aperture set at F9 (camera in full manual mode).Here are some more photos I took of this view.
