In the watchmaking history, the watchmaker can award their own chronometer certificates, which is apparently not real for the truth. To ensure the quality, Rolex gets its watches certificated by the authority regardless of the cost and the required extra time. To distinguish the original ones and later watches, in the late 1930s, Rolex changed chronometer engraved on the dial into “Officially Certified Chronometer”.

The Panerai PAM 615 Luminor Submersible Flyback Titanio – Replica Watches Better

A few weeks ago, I received the Panerai PAM 615 (or Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automaic Titanio in full) for a hands-on review. This Panerai PAM615 as well as its brother with a titanium bezel, the PAM 614, were introduced in Geneva earlier this year. I’ve had a couple of replica watches for sale myself and we’ve done reviews on several models in the past, but it is the first time I actually tried and tested te Panerai Submersible for a longer period.

Replica Watches – Panerai PAM 615 Review

  Panerai_LUMINOR-SUBMERSIBLE

 Operating the Panerai PAM 615

Even though the Panerai PAM 615 has a 47mm diameter and is – by all means – a big watch, it didn’t shock me when I strapped it on my wrist. I don’t have very big wrists, but I could handle the Submersible without problems. The Panerai signed rubber strap ensures a proper fit and prevents the watch from (annoyingly) sliding on your wrist. Operation of the watch is rather easy, the crown is used to set or correct the time and the two pushers (located at 10 o’clock and 8 o’clock) are used to start, stop and reset the chronograph.

Panerai uses an in-house developed caliber P.9100 for the PAM 615. This column-weel chronograph movement consists of 302 components and has a 3 day power reserve. Furthermore, as the official model name implies, the chronograph has a flyback feature. A flyback function means that you can reset the chronograph and start it again with one push of the button (located at 8 o’clock) without having to stop the chronograph first. The flyback chronograph therefore saves a bit of time compared to stopping the chronograph first, push the reset button and then press start again. For crucial timing this might come in handy.replica watches for rolex

Furthermore, this in-house developed caliber P.9100 features a central chronograph minute hand and two small registers (at 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock): the regular seconds and a 12-hour totalizer. Personally, I love the look of two-register chronographs and I am happy to see that more brands are using this lay-out in modern watches.

Of course, this Panerai Luminor has the trademark crown to ensure water resistance. The Panerai PAM 615 is resistant to 30 bar (approximately 300 meters) and due to the use of a rubber strap, you are ready at all times to enter the water. I didn’t of course, but I have no doubts that this watch goes deeper into the water than I am capable of.

Submersible Case

As written above, the case of the Panerai PAM 615 Submersible is big with its 47mm diameter. I had two 44mm Luminor models in the past and tried a 45mm Radiomir at some point, and already thought those were on the limit of what my wrist could handle. However, if there something I’ve learnt over the years is that specifications are only on paper. You need to try a swiss replica watches on the wrist in order to check if it is suitable for you. The Panerai PAM 615 has certainly a lot of presence when worn on the wrist, not only due to the large case but also because of the big rubber strap and Pre-Vendome style buckle. I received actually one comment from a non-watch person, telling me that this was one tough looking watch. It surely is.

The finish on the titanium case is very nice, a lot of surfaces are matt brushed and by doing this in various directions, per surface, it really looks awesome. No need for a lot of polishing on divers watches in my opinion, although this never disturbed me on the Panerai Luminor Marina models I had myself.

On the titanium caseback of the Panerai PAM 615 is no sapphire crystal (+1) but instead an engraving of a submersible and the place where the original workshop was founded in 1860: Florence. As you can see on the image below, the lugs have these little spring mechanisms in place that need to be pushed with a little tool to have the strap removed. I have seen a similar mechanism in the bracelet of my IWC Ingenieur 3227-01 if my memory serves me correctly.

 On top of the Submersible case is the bi-directional bezel. This Panerai PAM 615 has a matt black ceramic bezel. What surprised me, is that the Submersible I had for review had two small nicks on the bezel, showing a metal color underground. I don’t know the exact specifications and characteristics of ceramics, but perhaps the ceramic inlay of the bezel is rather thin. Ceramics can be scratched though, that much was clear to me when observing this watch. The bezel feels very solid and there was no play detected. The bezel has clear markings for every 5 minutes and the ’15’, ’30’ and ’45’ markers are engraved with an Arabic numeral to be able to quickly identify the remaining diving time.

  Panerai PAM 615 Dial and Handssummer rolex replica watches

I already talked about the two-register chronograph and how much I like that configuration. The large black dial is very readable and legible. Big round hour luminous hour markers and an Arabic ’12’ and ‘6’. The small chronograph hour recorder located at 3 o’clock also used Arabic numerals for the ’12’, ‘3’, ‘6’ and ‘9’. The ‘6’ and ‘9’ digits are ‘open’, like the ones on the date disc of my vintage Rolex watches. The designers of Panerai are King in embedding some heritage in their replica watches. The chrono seconds hand and small chronograph hour hand are in blue, which gives a very nice contrast. It also matches the OP logo on the rubber strap. The central chronograph minute hand is silver, like the regular skeleton hour and minute hands. The small seconds hands has the typical shape for Panerai watches.

The hour, minute and seconds hands that indicate the time are applied with luminous material and work very well during low light or in total darkness.

 Strap and Buckle

The black rubber strap is very comfortable on the wrist, especially during warm or hot weather. I wore the Panerai PAM 615 during this Summer and we had some high temperatures. I don’t like to wear top quality replica watches on leather in warm weather and am actually a guy that prefers bracelets in general. However, the rubber strap is something I could get used to very quickly. I also don’t know what type of leather strap I would put on this Submersible as it is clearly a diving watch. Perhaps a brown strap would do, but be aware that you can’t use a leather strap in the water.

The Panerai Pre-Vendome style buckle is something Panerai re-introduced a few years ago. They used this buckle before the Vendome Group (now Richemont Group) took over in – I believe 1997 – and made Panerai part of their luxury group. Collectors and Paneristi were in favor of the old style (Pre-V) buckle and I guess this led to the decision to re-introduce it again. A wise decision, as I love the Pre-V style buckle as well. The titanium (Trapezoidal) buckle on the Panerai PAM 615 has a nice satin brushed finish and is very unlikely to fail on you. Be aware that it is large though, just like the rest of the watch.

   Verdict on the Panerai PAM 615

Truth to be told, I had fun with this Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3-Days Chronograph Flyback PAM 615 watch for sure. I am by no means a diver, but I believe only a small percentage of those wearing a divers watch is. It is more about a certain style you prefer or a lifestyle you hold on to. Despite the 47mm diameter of the watch it is quite wearable, but truth to be told I wouldn’t buy this as my only watch. That’s personal of course, and has nothing to do with the quality or the design of the watch.

A chronograph is one of the most convenient complications in my opinion, as I find myself using it quite a bit (compared to other complications). I like to time certain activities like traveling or during cooking, but also like to time certain operations I perform on my computers (large data loads or certain processing of queries). The flyback is of no personal use to me, but I love the extra complication on top of the chronograph.

The one thing that worries me a bit on this Panerai PAM 615 is the price. It has a suggested retail price of  €16.600,- Euro (~ $18,360.- USD). I understand that the Swiss Franc was disconnected from the Euro and that Richemont decided to do some annual price increases nevertheless (it was €15.700,- Euro at the time of introduction January 2015). The demand for Panerai is still impressive (source: Chronolytics.ch), and in Q2 2015 the growth was especially noticeable in the United States, Asia and Australia compared to Q1 2015, so Richemont and Panerai feel no need to slow down on price increases. However, €16.600,- Euro felt quite steep to me, despite the use of an in-house developed column-wheel chronograph movement with flyback function. However, Panerai is also known to keep good value over time. This certainly has to be taken into account when you are in the market for the Panerai PAM 615.

Another thing that surprised me were the scratches on the bezel. You have to know that the watches we receive are mostly samples that are being sent around to journalists, photographers and stylists. Not pointing fingers here but these are not only watch people and might be a bit more reckless with these watches that I am used to. I don’t know what happened to the watch before we received it, but it had two little nasty marks on the bezel as can be seen on the photos. Let’s assume that it did see some hard knocks or a collision with something ‘hard’ as well.cheap replica watches rolex

#TBT-Tag Heuer Replica For Sale Online

There’s always a beginning to the story: something that draws one’s interest to a certain brand. Today’s #TBT relates to that beginning, for me at least, and highlights a popular luxury fake watch for sale in vintage circles outside of just those who admire the brand name on its dial. It’s a watch that has gained interest amongst fans of fdivers, military pieces, movie-related timepieces, and, most commonly, admirers of vintage Seikos. Today’s #TBT is about the vintage Seiko 6105-8110.

The Seiko 6105-8110 is the watch that drew me into vintage Seiko. I can’t quite remember how I stumbled upon it, but I can recall seeing it 4-5 years ago, looking at it on eBay and then moving on to something else. I had not really read enough about Seiko at that time and wasn’t compelled to spend decent money on what I considered to be a fairly pedestrian brand. Somehow, I kept running across the watch on various forums and I decided to start doing some reading. Ultimately, I decided that I wanted one in my collection and set about finding the right example. After a couple months, I located one on the SCWF from a seller in the Philippines (yes, good sellers do exist there) and I made the purchase. The watch then took its time getting through German customs (at least a month) before finally arriving on my desk. Needless to say, I was impressed.

The Seiko 6105 series replaced Seiko’s original professional diver, the 62MAS, in 1968 and was produced until 1977. In its first execution, it was produced with a clean, symmetrical case. About midway through its production cycle, it was replaced by the asymmetrical piece you see here. The case design is notable as it sets the tone for large, slab-like, case to be seen later on the beloved 6306/6309 series. Additionally, it represents Seiko’s first asymmetrical case, creating integrated crown guards that, stylistically, are seen up through today’s SKX007.

The Seiko 6105 comes in at an impressive 44mm in diameter and features a 17 jewel automatic running at 21,600 bph. It has a quick-set date does not hand-wind due to Seiko’s magic lever system. It claims a water resistance of 150 meters and has a bi-directional rotating click bezel. The crystal, as the scratches clearly show, is Seiko’s in-house Hardlex mineral glass. Lug width is 19mm. The crown, in lieu of a screw down method, uses a turn and lock system that is unique to this model; its functionality and longevity was clearly seen as questionable versus traditional screw down crowns. The case-back is screw down per the typical manner.

Finishing on the Seiko 6105 is impressive and uses a matte finish on the top of the case and polishing on the sides. In fact, the case, overall, is impressive. From almost every angle, there’s a lot happening and it has an almost organic, amoebic, feel to it. It’s very 1970’s, but in a good way if that makes any sense. The dial is business-like with applied indices that are filled with lume. It contains minute markers outside of the indices that are mimicked in a chapter ring that slants up towards the crystal. It should be noted that this chapter ring, which was also found on the first execution 6105, is still present today in Seiko’s dive watches. Hands are extremely basic and well designed as rectangles with lume. The sweep seconds hand, though, is where it gets interesting. It’s a basic spear until the endpoint where it’s capped off with a unique shape and what was previously a red-filled dot followed by a dot filled with lume matching the rest of the dial. It’s a hallmark of the model that stands out whether the red has faded beyond recognition or not. One final note regarding the dial is its restraint when it comes to verbiage. Seiko placed its name on the dial using applied chrome and then printed “Automatic”, water resistance and the Suwa symbol in white. It’s a case of “less is more” and is simpler than the 62MAS before it. Finally, the classic Seiko bezel is updated from the 62MAS by introducing a triangle at 12:00. Here again, the same bezel is with us today and is great in its simplicity.

Regarding popular culture, the Seiko 6105 is famous for its presence in Apocalypse Now on the arm of Martin Sheen’s character, Captain Willard. The famous image is easily found by doing a simple search online. Related to this, though, is the fact that the 6105 was somewhat of a popular choice amongst soldiers during the Vietnam War. It was sold in military PX’s and while not cheap, it was certainly less expensive than, say, a Rolex Submariner.

At 44mm in diameter, you’d expect the Seiko 6105 to wear like a behemoth on the wrist, but that simply isn’t the case. Perhaps it’s the soft shape or the slim lug width that helps, but it really wears much closer to 40mm. Speaking of those slim lugs and what lies between them, you’ll notice a rubber strap. However, this is no ordinary rubber strap but a waffle strap that was standard issue on watches such as this. In my opinion, this is the only strap that belongs on this best sale replica watch online. Of course, finding an original strap is problematic as they’re extremely rare, expensive and often damaged. Luckily, seller “wjean” on eBay has fantastic replicas for sale that fit the job. If you end up owning a 6105, I highly recommend buying one of these straps.

Finding a Seiko 6105 is not overly difficult, but finding a good one can be another story altogether. You’ll note from my example that the dial exhibits some characteristic “wabi” or lume rot characteristic of vintage Seikos. However, this example isn’t bad compared to many and it looks authentic compared to the vast majorities that have been refinished. This brings me to an important point; there are loads of 6105’s for sale and most of those have been altered. When it comes to alterations, they range from refinished hands and dials to parts replaced with aftermarket items. A tell-tale sign is the sweep seconds hand; if the colors are too poignant especially when compared to the rest of the dial and hands, something is wrong. You have to be very careful about buying a 6105 and ensure that you are getting something that meets your expectations. I’d generally say that perfect looking pieces are rare as most lived a hard life, but they do exist and are priced as such. Good, solid pieces have now appeared to eclipse the $1,000 mark and excellent pieces are hitting $1,500 and above. The market, at this time, seems to appreciate well-restored and refinished pieces, but, for better or worse, I am a stickler for originality. Another item to check for is crown to ensure it is the original stating “lock” with the rotating arrow. Bezel inserts are also often replaced with aftermarket inlays so do some homework on this as well.

The Seiko 6105 is an iconic watch in the Seiko diver chronology. It has a great case shape paired with an equally fantastic dial design. It was the beginning of my journey down a path of collecting most of the Seiko divers and it still remains as one of my favorites and perhaps the most distinctive. Its appearance in a legendary movie doesn’t hurt either. Feel free to share your thoughts below on this week’s #TBT or on which Seiko diver got you hooked!
