Arguably the Panerai replica watch that has attracted the most press attention this year, the new fake Luminor 1950 3 Days ref. PAM00663 is a beautiful timepiece, which draws from the designer’s heritage.

It features the same brown-grey dial color, but has a more typical Panerai appearance, complete with the trademark ‘Device Protecting the Crown’. Fitted with the P.3000 movement, the timepiece also has a Plexiglas crystal and a 47mm case size. It has a retail price of $11,250 and thanks to the positive reviews the model has attracted, we can likely expect to see the brown-grey dial color become available for some of Panerai’s entry-level models in the not-too-distant future.

If the indexes on your Radiomir ‘s dial had been made of radium , your timepiece would be worth a lot of money and its black dial would slowly transform itself into something that is similar to the light chocolate brown dial of the Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Acciaio 663 . Panerai has come up with one of the dials that best represents the birth of an icon, the glorious era between the 40s and the 50s when the Italian manufacturer was the official provider of the timepieces worn by Italian Navy ‘s frogmen.

This story is also the main idea behind Panerai ‘s decision to launch two limited series ; one with a Radiomir 1940 case and the other one with a Luminor 1950 case. To summarize: the mens replica Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Acciaio 663 is based on the Pam 372 , the Luminor that falls between the Radiomir and the Luminor Marina . The dial is hazelnut brown in colour and it features yellow indexes made of grade A SuperLuminova , one of the many existing SuperLuminova types that also features the lowest decay index.

It is pretty interesting to see how Panerai is more and more openly talking about the techniques used to craft their watches, a marketing move that, only a few years ago, would definitely be generally unheard of because of no interest and also because unable perhaps to boost sales. Today, technical features are back in fashion and are slowly becoming vital in an industry where manufacturers need to come up with timepieces sporting unique features. While browsing the brand’s website I also found out that all their Submersible watches are ISO 6425 certified as it is clearly indicated on the collection’s online landing page.

The main difference between this timepiece and the 372 is something that might be overlooked at first sight; the dial is of the sandwich type, whereas the indexes of the Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Acciaio 663 are cut and filled with glowing material. It is definitely the most bizarre dial that I have ever seen on a Panerai and I am sure that it is just the beginning of a new era.This detail makes this timepiece ideally similar to the ” Egiziano Piccolo ” and the final result is a dial that looks as if it were one thing with glass; a plexiglass that is very thick and is so curved that it is virtually impossible to take a picture of it without incurring the glare effect.

Like its similar Radiomir version, the Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Acciaio 663 will be crafted in 1000 pieces only and each of them is sold in a wooden box with an additional plexiglass and it retails at 9.900 euro, just a small step behind the psychological 10K-euro-threshold. The AISI316L -made case measures 47mm and is coupled with a brown “ Ponte Vecchio ” strap featuring ecru stitching and the OP logo . The strap is thick and a bit hard on the wrist but it has been specifically designed to give this timepiece a vintage look the more you wear it – Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days PAM 663 copy watch.
