In 1860, Giovanni Panerai opened his first shop at Ponte alle Grazie in Florence. This is where the story of perfect replica Panerai begins, as it went from a diving equipment shop, to a watch shop and workshop, and eventually to the city’s first watchmaking school, deep in the epicentre of Italy’s home of artisanship and artistic creativity. At that point, UK luxury fake Panerai had already been producing precision instruments for the Italian military, but in order to meet their ever-increasing demands, Panerai developed a radium-based powder to make the dials of these instruments brighter in low light conditions, and it was at this point in 1916, that Radiomir was born. It wouldn’t be until the 1930s that the first aaa quality replica Panerai-dialled Rolex watches were produced, with the reference 2533 heralded as the first cheap super clone Panerai Radiomir.
Today, they’re part of the Richemont group and have their modern manufacturing embedded in Switzerland, but it is a brand that is proud of its Italian history. Swiss made replica Panerai UK now has three core lines consisting of the Radiomir the traditional Radiomir, the more technical Luminor and finally the hardcore Submersible.
Each line has a wide array of material choices, from stainless steel, bronze, gold, and even carbon fibre, and each one is instantly recognisable as a high quality fake Panerai, not only with its distinctive size but also elements such as its patented crown guard system and oversized numerals. If your wrists are big enough, there’s a watch for everyone in their collection, and as a brand that these days doesn’t get quite as much attention as it used to, it certainly deserves more, given they are loaded with history and helped to put Italy on the watchmaking map.
