A summer watch can be many different things, however, there is one prerequisite – it needs to be water resistant.Panerai’s Submersible BMG-Tech Replica Watch is more than capable of these requirements, and it also shows off the Italian marque’s innovative new material “BMG-Tech”.
Panerai Replica BMG is a glass-like alloy of zirconium, copper, aluminium, titanium and nickel. These components are formed at high pressure and high temperature and then rapidly cooled to prevent crystallisation, meaning that the atoms are randomly aligned, which ensures the material is very strong and durable.
What this wizardry/metallurgy means is that Bulk Metallic Glass is lighter than steel, harder, corrosion resistant and antimagnetic. On a purpose-built dive watch of this size, these are pretty great attributes to have.
The Perfect Panerai Replica Watch dial is a rich, vivid blue, which moves from navy to a near-azure hue, depending on the light. It’s a good-looking dial. Especially when you add it to the classic layout, with a few popping electric blue highlights.
The final piece of the puzzle is the movement, the automatic calibre P.9010, nestled safely inside the 300m rated case, and good for 3 days of power reserve, all hidden behind a solid caseback.
If you’re into that classic Panerai look, but with a cutting-edge twist, have a look at the Replica Submersible BMG-Tech.
