If you are a Panerai Watches Uae Replica lover, you probably recognize this watch. That’s because it is the third iteration of the Mare Nostrum, dating back to the early days of Panerai. The Mare Nostrum was the first chronograph ever produced by Panerai, first created in 1943 for the Italian Navy. The design was later revived in 1993 as the first re-edition, the reference 5218-301/A, which was in production until 1997. The watch you see here is almost exactly like that 1993 re-edition, though with a few small updates.
The new re-edition of the Panerai Watches 8 Days Replica Mare Nostrum chronograph in a limited series of 1,000 pieces.
This watch starts with a 42mm AISI 316L stainless steel case, just like the 1993 edition, with round chronograph pushers, and a tachymeter bezel calibrated to 60 Km/h. The very first Mare Nostrum measured in at a whopping 52mm, so there is a quite a difference here, and it makes the watch, you know, actually wearable. The dial, which is also quite attractive, has two different colored accents: bright white for the signature and the two registers, and beige SuperLuminova (with a slight faux-patina vibe) for the indexes, Arabic numerals, and hands.

Panerai chose to use the same movement as the pre-Vendome edition, the caliber OP XXXIII, which is based on an ETA 2801-2 with a Dubois-Dépraz chronograph module. It is COSC-certified and has a power reserve of 42 hours.
It’s pretty cool that Panerai has stuck to the archives for this watch. It’s an attractive piece that will likely be a hit with new and old Panerai collectors alike. The latest is being produced in a series of 1,000 pieces and comes in a wooden box that is shaped like the Luigi Durand De La Penne, an Italian Navy destroyer ship from the era of the original Mare Nostrum.
The watch retails for $10,200 and you can read more about it by visiting Panerai online.
The Mare Nostrum is based on a similar watch first produced in 1943 with a 52mm case.
I have a theory that says this added reflectivity provides a subconscious, unidentified sense of enhanced “luxury” to those who know absolutely nothing about watches and are only going with the “the shinier the more precious” approach. Given the wide popularity and marketplace that Panerai is in, I guess this is a tactic that works. This mentioned, I really cannot think about any other potential explanation — and I understand even this one is a small stretch. Still, the reflectivity of the crystal is so “great” that it provides a remarkably sharp picture of whatever is behind or over you. You are able to see your face when you look at it or the rear of your phone as you attempt to have a photograph, or the person leaves on the trees over. Under some lighting conditions, reflectivity is not too bad — it’s in outdoor environments where it actually becomes too much.Wearability has been outstanding, even though this 45mm edition, again, is more ideal for those with 7.5″ or larger wrists. Since it’s thin, the PAM674 does not get caught up on sleeves, it only slides under, making it that much more comfortable to wear. The 24mm-wide black strap was thin by Panerai standards and, with its tang buckle, easy to put on. The strap I ended up sporting with all the PAM674, however, was that this tan bit from Junik, which worked so much better using the overall appearances. When purchasing, I’d definitely ask the boutique/store to replace the mill black strap to something of this colour since, as a gamer, this is merely a much more vibrant, but no less tasteful combination. Additional you could always pick up an aftermarket black strap for twenty five bucks or so to wear on more formal events.
