|Then there's the name… Panerai California . Very appealing, very dreamy feel and also gives a sense of replica rolex freedom because it doesn't quite fit in the pattern modern watches had gotten us used to. This Panerai simply cannot be left out. You know me, I love big, bulky watches, but I'm also looking for class. The Panerai Radiomir Black Seal has the best of both worlds. It's simple, yet very refined look made this one of the most popular Panerai watches. Unlike the California, the Panerai Radiomir Black Seal is much more on the elegant side. The fully polished stainless steel case, simple black dial and black croc leather strap work very well together to give it this very refined look. Come to think of it, it's impossible for me to imagine it any different and that's exactly why it has its well-deserved place in this Panerai TOP 3. The fake Panerai Radiomir Composite Marina Militare aka PAM 339 is a perfect example of how close a Panerai is to an original. And what you should keep in mind is that this puppy sells for about $15K as an original. With a black ionized case, suede leather strap and the contrast between the brown dial and greenish-yellowish lume, this surely is one of the most modern-looking Panerai Radiomir watches out there. I like everything about it, from the way it looks, to the way it feels on my wrist and the way it keeps time, the mechanical hand-wound movement being right on. Although it clearly isn't as elegant as the Black Seal or vintage looking as the California, it still deserves its place in this Panerai top 3 and I believe it should be part of replique montre every Panerai collection. Just look at the caseback and you'll understand why. I'm waiting to hear your thoughts on this, feel free to abuse the comment section below and tell me if you think I should have included any other Panerai Radiomir s in this TOP 3.
