Ever since Panerai watches were first made available to the general public in mid 1990’s, they have stolen the hearts of thousands of fans who drool over the possiblity of wearing one of these masterpieces.
The Panerai Radiomir Black Seal is ahead of the pack, with the most avid buyers happy to spend a small fortune on their chronometer timepiece.
Panerai Radiomir Black Seal – Set to Conquer
Typically well known for being reliable and sturdy, even under extreme conditions, the Panerai Radiomir is distinctive for its large size and being easy to read the dial even submerged under water. This was important considering that the core audience it was designed for were Navy officers and commandos.
However, we are no longer in the early part of the twentieth century. And today, watches which were once crafted specifically for the Royal Italian Navy are now being modified to fit more general needs.
A Cult Icon
The Radiomir was always a pack leader. Today, it has a cult following, with every one of the limited edition and specialty pieces becoming a collector’s item.
The strap itself of the Panerai Radiomir Black Seal is a piece of art, being welded to the case (or attached with a unique system of screws that is patented by the company). There are different models of the Radiomir collection available, each of them a craftsman’s delight.
The Panerai Radiomir Black Seal combines reliability with very sophisticated technology, into a marvellous mens watch. With a steel casing, a 45 mm dial, and two separate discs that are superimposed to create a uniquely 3 dimensional effect, the watch sports a dial that glows in the dark making it easy to read.
Black dials are a Radiomir tradition, and there are baton markers for hours, minutes, seconds and even a subdial for seconds at the 9 o clock position.
Panerai Radiomir Black Seal Replicas
When an original timepiece will set you back a cool 6,000 pounds (or $7,800), there is enough room for copycats to step in – and so we have a thriving market of replicas. This isn’t unique to a Panerai, as we see the same happening with Cartier, Mont Blanc or other top brands. You can find a list of models available on the Web if you search for replica watches.
Near perfect Panerai replicas will give you an illusion of timeless luxury – at prices anyone can afford comofortably. These copies are made from high quality material, and you will definitely be getting a useful and precious watch, even if it cannot compare to the original. Still, if what matters is to be seen wearing a reasonable imitation of a top class watch, then a replica Radiomir may be a good choice.
