Although the popularity of sports watches in recent years has aroused everyone’s pursuit of large-diameter watches. But in fact, with the change of wearing experience and time aesthetics, everyone has gradually returned to “rationality” in the choice of watches. The impression of Panerai has always been very tough. Its large diameter and crown bridge protection device have left a very deep impression on people. Because of this, it is not very friendly to watch friends with small wrists. But just last year, Panerai launched a new 40mm Lumino series watch, providing more choices for watch lovers.
Although this 40mm Lumino series replica watch has been reduced in size, it has none of the iconic aesthetic elements it should have. It can be said that it has become more practical and versatile while retaining the tough style.
The pillow-shaped case is one of the iconic design elements of the Panerai Lumino series. This watch also follows this case design and is made of 316L stainless steel. After the frosting process, it looks very textured.
Steel Crown and Bridge Guard
The crown bridge protection device can effectively improve the waterproof performance of the replica watch, and can also prevent the crown from being bumped or accidentally touched. There are non-slip pits around the crown for easy adjustment by the wearer.
The bezel of the replica watch is decorated with a polishing process, which is in sharp contrast with the frosted process of the case, making the watch more layered as a whole.
The overall design of the dial is simple but not dual. The Arabic numerals at 6 and 12 points add a touch of fun to the replica watch and neutralize the toughness of the case. The sun radiation pattern will present different visual effects to the wearer under different light.
There is a date display window at the 3 o’clock position on the dial, which increases the practicality of the replica watch. This watch also uses a small three-hand dial design, with a small second dial at 9 o’clock, showing a unique aesthetic style.
The upper layer of the sandwich structure is hollowed out, and the lower layer is filled with luminous paint, which can ensure that the wearer can easily read the time even in a dim environment.
The replica watch is equipped with a navy blue alligator leather strap in the same color as the dial. At the same time, in order to create more watch styles, the watch also comes with a spare tobacco-colored calfskin strap. The strap can be easily replaced through the equipped quick release system, making the replica watch more versatile. The pin buckle design is easy to wear and take off.
Turning over the watch, we can see that this watch has a dense bottom design. The interior is equipped with a P.900 self-winding movement with a slim design and a thickness of only 4.2 mm. But the power reserve can be as long as 3 days, and the waterproof depth is 100 meters.
Summary: This 40mm Panerai Lumino series replica watch retains the unique toughness of Panerai while adding elegance and urban casual temperament. This enables the watch to be more flexibly adapted to the wearing needs of different occasions. It is a good choice whether it is daily commuting or matching with formal wear. Watch friends who like sports dress watches can pay more attention.
