Now, Panerai replica merges the Radiomir design DNA with another important chapter in the brand’s story. The cheap fake Panerai Radiomir Eilean brings together the signature elements of the brand’s military wristwatch collection from 1936 and its links to the marine industry. The new 45mm Panerai replica for men is named after a yacht that was built in the very same year and features a case crafted from patina steel. It promises all the hallmarks of the familiar Panerai Radiomir super clone watch but is enriched with some significant references to the sailboat and its decades-long life sailing the seas of Europe and the Caribbean.
The birth of dial lume
At the time of the first Radiomir watch, Swiss fake Panerai was already supplying dive watches, compasses, and depth gauges to the Royal Italian Navy. This legible dive watch then emerged – a commissioned cheap replica watches with uniquely glowing indexes and hands made from one of Panerai’s proprietary compounds. The Radium-based powder, rendering the dial luminous in the gloomiest of depths, was patented in 1916 by Guido Panerai – the grandson of the company’s founder, Giovanni Panerai. The Radium paste was a self-luminescent compound that would glow richly at night, making it a key element used in Panerai’s production of military copy watches online.
Issued just in time for the Second World War, the high quality fake Panerai Radiomir featured a cushion-shaped steel case attached to a heavy-duty leather strap courtesy of a set of wire lugs welded directly onto the case. The 1:1 fake Panerai Radiomir watch, although not initially made available to civilians, has since enjoyed over 80 years of success, the Radium-based lume now replaced by a much safer, non-radioactive, luminous material. Since its prototype, the AAA fake Panerai Radiomir has certainly progressed in respect to Panerai’s manufacturing techniques (the brand went on to create cases made from a single block of steel from the 1940s onwards), but has strayed very little from its roots.
Eilean sets sail again
The new limited edition luxury replica Panerai Radiomir Eilean tips its proverbial hat to the 70-foot ketch designed by boat builders and Scottish steel merchants, William Fife & Son in Fairlie. The 1936 yacht was clad in a stunning teak deck that is now reflected in the dial of the new Panerai Radiomir replica online. Her waterlines were inspired by J-Class yachts competing in the America’s Cup in the 1930s. Before becoming badly damaged, she had cruised the Balearic Islands and even made an appearance in the music video of Duran Duran’s 1982 hit, “Rio”.
After she collided with a ferry near the coast of Portugal, she sank to the bottom of the English harbor. Like a glimmering plot of lume on the dial of a Swiss made copy Panerai Radiomir, Eilean was spotted under the murky depths of the sea and dredged up in 2006 for a three-year restoration process coordinated by Panerai’s CEO, Bonati. A team of skilled workmen has managed to revive 60% of Eilean’s original planks along with her bell, anchor, and wheel.
