The watch industry loves a ‘first’, but there are some first-time achievements that are more notable than others. With AAA super clone Panerai, this was the case last year with the launch of its innovative eSteel—a sustainably-sourced case material. This year, saw another noteworthy first, as eSteel was added to the watchmaker’s wildly popular 1:1 replica Panerai Submersible collection for the first time.
While the interest in sustainability has been a growing trend in the industry, the Italian watchmaker is one of the few that spends concerted effort in developing new material with a recycling and sustainable ethos. The creation of the patented eSteel is proof-positive of what can happen when a technically-savvy brand decides to fully explore the possibilities of pushing the limits of recycling to a mind-bending degree.
The first timepiece in eSteel was introduced last year with the sleek, bezel-less Luminor Marina, and the introduction of the material to the perfect replica Panerai Submersible collection is another important feat signifying part of a larger effort by Panerai to reduce the ecological impact of the super clone watch industry.
Today, the measure of a manufacture’s watchmaking capabilities is no longer confined to the sophistication of the movements it produces or the precision of its finishing. As profound environmental challenges demand solutions, attention turn to practices that reduce the ecological impact of every aspect of the best quality copy watch industry.
For the cheap fake Panerai Submersible QuarantaQuattro eSteel, a total of 72g of the timepiece is made from recycled materials; that’s 52 percent of 137g, the total weight of the watch.
It is not only the use of eSteel that makes the 44mm Panerai Submersible QuarantaQuattro replica for men notable. As a modern dive watch, the piece is the first eSteel-based timepiece to be have a polished ceramic bezel. The high gloss surface of the unidirectional bezel is also a first in top copy Panerai history. The dial also wears a gradient pattern; light at the top and dark at the bottom, and powering the piece from the inside is the ever-present P.900 that’s used in over a dozen Panerai models.
Two straps are included with each watch, both in the same colour as their companion dial. The focus of Swiss movement replica Panerai CA on sustainability is not confined to eSteel; the first strap is composed of fabric made recycled PET, while the second strap is made from recycled rubber. A tool that allows interchangeability of the straps and a screwdriver for removing the buckle also accompanies every watch.
