Panerai Has Ceased Its Reliance On The ETA-Based Movements

By the same token, the 38mm Due is a welcome, and equally long-overdue addition to the line – particularly because there has always been a large contingent of watch fans who love the replica Panerai watches aesthetic, but the broad cases have relegated them to larger wrists only.

It also hasn’t helped that the thin bezel and broad dial aperture that characterizes the Luminor line yields an even slightly larger wrist presence than the specs suggest.

So despite being the smallest replica Panerai uk ever made, the 38mm Due wears closer to a traditional 40mm sport watch, ironically making it the nail in the ‘big watch trend’ coffin, now that the brand largely credited with super-sizing the industry is openly embracing the polar opposite end of the spectrum.
