2019 is coming to an end with the end of Christmas. This means the arrival of 2020. According to the Chinese zodiac, 2020 is the year of the rat. Let’s see what special watches the replica Panerai brand has prepared for the Year of the Rat.
A Successful Twelve-year Cycle
Since the Year of the Ox in 2009, Panerai has produced a replica watch with a zodiac significance every year. So as of 2020, replica Panerai has completed the collection of 12 zodiac watches. The twelfth Panerai Luminor Sealand will be officially released on January 25, 2020. I believe that there are already many collectors who are also zodiac rats waiting for its arrival.
Panerai Luminor Sealand PAM00863
Like the previous 11 zodiac series, the replica Panerai Luminor Sealand PAM00863 watch for the year of the mouse also has a lid. Now let’s talk about the pattern on the lid. First of all, there was a smiling mouse in the middle. The fruit, flowers and auspicious clouds that surround the mouse are the next. These blessed wearers are full of luck and a rich harvest in 2020. Finally, there is a rat in the upper left corner. Because it is the symbol of replica Panerai Luminor Sealand PAM00863 to commemorate the Year of the Rat in China.
Next is the carving process. There are only 88 replica Panerai “Year Of The Rat” watches. But each one was hand-carved by Italian master craftsmen. And the master used the sparse craftsmanship of his ancestors. The artisans use a small scalpel tool to sculpt, and then repeatedly hit the gold thread to fill the gap. So each lid takes about 50 hours. Anyway, regardless of the function of the watch, the cover is a piece of art worth buying.
The connection point between the cover and the watch is above the 12 o’clock position. The Panerai designer used a hinge connection to make the lid perfectly cover the 44mm AISI 316L satin stainless steel case. The dial is both classic and simple. Panerai Luminor Sealand PAM00863 has only two hands. The second hand is displayed separately in a small circle at 9 o’clock. In addition, there is a rectangular date window at three o’clock. And each time scale and hands use Super-LumiNova ™ light.
Consistent with Luminor Sealand of the Year of the Pig. The Year of the Rat Panerai Luminor Sealand PAM00863 also uses the P. 9010 movement. The P. 9010 movement is only 6MM and can store power for three days. In addition, Panerai Year Of The Rat 44MM has a waterproof depth of 100M.
Panerai Luminor Sealand PAM00863 is only 15.8MM thick. The original bracelet was a beige semi-matte gold calfskin bracelet. There is also a black rubber strap that comes in a Pearwood box. Therefore, this Panerai Year Of The Rat 44MM is light and thin, and it must be comfortable on the wrist. Although I may not have the chance to wear it because 88 Panerai Year Of The Rat watches is only sold in boutiques.
The year of the rat is the first in the Chinese zodiac, and it is the first time that Panerai has achieved a complete twelve years. After all, there is only one zodiac in a year, and the next year of the rat will be twelve years later, so don’t hesitate if you like it. And 2020 replica Panerai Luminor Sealand PAM00863 has the meaning of the first twelve-year cycle.
