The development history of replica watch industry is definitely glorious. The material and watch-making technology now have been greatly improved. When I was firstly involved in this industry eight years ago, most replica watches use low grade of stainless steel, the bracelet of these replica watches is even hollow in each link. Now, the materials are better, most are solid 316L stainless steel, some brand replicas use high grade ceramic, forged carbon and bronze. Along with the usage of better materials on replica watches, the development progress of watch-making technology is also remarkable, especially in movement. For example, the super clone 4130 from Noob factory has been very close to genuine Rolex 4130 and can achieve a full slim chronograph function. P.9000 from VS factory now is the best movement used in Panerai replica watches. Some watches even use genuine tourbillon movement. Today, the Panerai replica watch PAM 213 I am going to review uses a rattrapante movement, this is a real rattrapante movement used in a replica watch. The Super Clone Rattrapante movement can achieve all functions of the genuine movement.
We have seen so many Panerai watches, they are simple PAM 111, 127 or robust Luminor Submersible 508, 382, etc, but PAM 213 is the first Panerai I saw with such a complicated double chronograph function. Like other Panerai watches, PAM 213 has a big case and features iconic crown bridge, the difference is that PAM 213 has an extra chronograph button at 7 o’clock. Look at the case, it is very large, 44mm in diameter, the thickness is up to 19mm, a little thick I think. Round bezel is polished, while forms a high contrasting with its brushed case. On the right case side, there are two chronograph buttons on and below the crown bridge. In the last of this article, I will show instruction to you on how to operate the double chronograph of the watch.
The crystal is also another big selling point of the replica. First, it is a dome-shaped sapphire crystal, the domed sapphire is very hard to be produced and is very rare in our market. Second, the sapphire crystal has colorless AR coating, which is Swiss grade, so the dial below will have a good readability even you read the time under sun light. The dial is black, big Arabic numbers “6” and “12” are raised from the dial, they are applied with thick lume material like other hour markers. Two subdials are sunken, the small dial at 9 o’clock is for display of small seconds, while the subdial at 3 o’clock is for 30-minute chronograph. The dial is not sandwiched, but all hour markers are coated with full Swiss luminescence.
The bracelet is black leather, while the outside face has a carbon fibre look, which is so unique, if you are tired of those ASSO band from Panerai, you may get a freshness or surprise by wearing this type of band. The following is specification of the replica watch, and instruction on how to use the double chronograph.

- You can wind the watch for more than 80 rounds, so the watch will have enough power reserve before you use its double chronograph function.
- When the pusher at 2:00 is started, two chronograph hands will move.
- Then push the 7:00 down, one chronograph hand will stop.
- If you push the 2:00 button agin, the second chronograph hand will stop.
- Now if you push the button at 7 o’clock, the hand stopped first will jump to the position of the second hand.
- If you want two chronograph hands back to 12 o’clock, make sure two hands are stationary before push the 4:00 button down.
So, this is the guide for you to use the Rattrapante function.
