Mare Nostrum is the first chronograph in the history of Panerai Panerai, which is different from Panerai’s highly recognizable pillow-shaped appearance. This one was specially designed by the Royal Italian Navy Officer in 1943. Timepieces mean so much to Panerai, and one of the most collectible watches for brand lovers. However, the theme of re-engraving is full of 2017 watch altars, and hundreds of replica watches are in full bloom. The last re-engraving of Panerai Mare Nostrum was 2015. I did not expect Panerai to respond in two years in 2017. The enthusiasm for the launch of the Mare Nostrum Acciaio models, the details of the first generation of Mare Nostrum models in 1993 more authentic presentation.
Feature one: identify the epoch
Different from the previous engravings, after the black and brown dials, the new Mare Nostrum Acciaio dials use the exquisite dark blue tone like the 1993 model, with the alligator strap, the same color stitching and stitching The buckle is a wonderful match, and it also takes advantage of the popular blue face design. After all, it is the flag of the replica watch. Basically, the dial design has not been adjusted much. The minute counter is set at 9 o’clock, the small second dial is set at 3 o’clock, and the middle chronograph second hand is set. The scales and hour markers on the face plate are processed with Super-LumiNova® to ensure clear and reliable reading. However, you can still see some adjustments from the face plate this time. The brand of the new Mare Nostrum Acciaio face plate matches the position of the model name, and is placed at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock, respectively. This detail distinguishes Mare Nostrum timepieces of different ages.
The new Mare Acciaio uses a dark blue face plate with a crocodile leather strap of the same color, in response to the popular blue face plate design.
Feature two: speed scale bezel
The new Panerai Mare Nostrum Acciaio uses a 42mm diameter AISI 316L stainless steel case instead of the 52mm shape. This large reduction in diameter can be said to increase the incentive for many people to start at the same time. After all, the original 52mm diameter is not Everyone can control. This watch’s stainless steel case is equipped with a wide flat frosted bezel, engraved with a speed scale in kilometers per hour, and is matched with a traditional shaped handle. Speaking of which, this new Mare Nostrum Acciaio is not exactly the same as the 1993 model. The speed scale of the case is clearly distinguished from the previous two generations of the engraved models, making the original seem monotonous. The bezel now has a tachymeter scale design, which makes the overall design of the watch look richer.
The addition of the tachymeter scale enriches the overall design of the watch
Feature three: remove the historical movement
Now bearing the flag of the replica watch, Panerai moved out the same OP XXXIII manual-winding movement equipped in the Pre-Vendôme period model for this classic replica watch, and Panerai used ETA 2801-2 Based on the Dubois-Sepraz timing element, this movement has a 42-hour power reserve and has been certified by the Swiss Official Astronomical Observatory (COSC). It is waterproof to a depth of 50 meters. Performance has always been above standards. In addition, the screw-down caseback is engraved with the Officine Panerai Firenze and OP logos, exactly like the 1993 model.
The case back is completely restored to the design of the case back of the historical model
