Officine Panerai makes some of the most recognisable 1:1 replica watches on the market today. Not one to cram its dials with over-complicated design flourishes, the Italian watchmaker prefers to take a more minimalist approach to design – instead, relying on its impressive nautical history and a signature design language that’s immediately recognisable.
Panerai was founded in Florence, Italy in 1860 by then-35-year-old Giovanni Panerai. The original shop was located at the iconic Ponte Alle Grazie bridge, but when his grandson Guido took over the business just 30 years later, it was relocated to Piazza San Giovanni, one of the main public squares in the city.
It was Guido who was responsible for developing Panerai’s famous Radiomir luminous material (and subsequent nomenclature) in 1915 and shortly after, Panerai was commissioned to make diver’s watches for the Italian navy. These AAA UK fake watches were made in collaboration with Rolex and were huge, coming in at 47mm – a uniquely large watch diameter Panerai still offers today.
These days, Panerai produces a majority of its movements in-house and is well-known for its material innovations, such as its proprietary Carbotech and Fibratech compounds. Their Radiomir and Luminor luminescent compounds have since been phased out in favour of Super-LumiNova in recent years, due to their radioactive properties.
High quality Panerai replica watches have secured a special place in the world of horology due to their hefty construction, use of innovative materials and their general aesthetic. They’re a true icon. We’ve rounded up some of the best online Panerai copy watches currently available, although making such a shortlist was no easy task…
