U-Boat is an Italian watch brand, it is a new brand created in 2000. Its name was born due to the famous German U-Boat Submarine. The watches U-Boat made are representative of masculinity and firmness, most of them are in a large case diameter. U-Boat watches have black pvd coating plated on case, some directly use stainless steel, they are equipped with ETA movement. The most bright design spot of U-Boat is that their crown is set on left side of the case, which was very convenient to operate. So, U-Boat will be a nice choice for people who like large and black military watches.

Today, I will introduce a good replica U-Boat watch, it is not made by a big factory so the price will be much affordable. The watch does not have pvd black coating like other U-Boat, it is made of 316L stainless steel, solid and brushed, except the polished bezel and lugs. The case looks very large, it is in 46mm, absolutely not including the big crown on the left side. The case design gives me a mechanical sense although it is a quartz watch. Case side is brushed with sand finish, which forms a high contrast against the polished case parts. A Limited Edition No. and quantity are engraved on a metal sheet on the right side of the case. The bezel, case body and case back are fixed through by five screws. On the left case side, there are two chrono buttons and crown, you need to loosen the crown to operate the chrono button at 8, which is set for start/stop chronograph, the square chrono button positioned at 10 is for chronograph reset. Do not lock back the crown after operating these buttons.

The case back is full of engravings, but the most attractive one is the great white shark pattern. By the way, the replica watch is fitted genuine black leather straps, which have iconic holes in different size, the black band features nice hand stitching that is also in black.

The history of Panerai began in 1860, when Giovanni Panerai opened his watchmaking shop at the Firenze Phone alle Grazie. The brand would move to Piazza San Giovanni somewhat later – the current Firenze Panerai Boutique is still located there.

Although a specialist at watches, the Panerai firm would grow fame as a supplier of military instruments, including torches, compasses, depth meters and others. In 1916 the first patent was filed for ‘Radiomir’, a luminescent substance that would increase the readability of dials of instruments and devices in dim light.
In 1936 the first prototype of a Radiomir-type dive watch was shown. Its oversized (47mm) case was fitted with wire-loop lugs and it featured a hand-wound movement. It was produced in cooperation with Rolex.

Talking about GMT watches, the first thing come into my mind is the Rolex GMT watches, Rolex is good at that. But it is always on a Rolex design and style, so I have been paid attention to other brands’ GMT watches too. Then I realize that there are many excellent GMT models are out there except for Rolex. Today here I will bring you a a Panerai PAM 029 replica watch from Noob factory. It is made out from an original piece which has been detached by the engineer from Noob. Well, I can’t wait to show you more about this amazing timepiece.

PAM 029 Luminor Case

Still, the look is very Panerai style, the 44mm*15mm is 1:1 as the original, and this is a perfect size for man. Case is made of solid stainless steel 316F, except for the excellent case, the case surface polished work is amazing too. On the black Tuxudo dial, there are four needles and stick/numeral markers. The markers, hour and minute needles are done with Original C3 Superlume that allow to read the time in dark. Where is showing the GMT(Greenwich Mean Time)? Well, we can see there is the fourth needle and there are 0-24 numeral markers on the bezel, this is showing it. Besides, date indicator is at 3:00 position. From the right side, we can see Panerai’s special lug to protect the crown well, all the settings can be set from this part. Inside the case, there is an Asia EAT 2836-2 automatic movement, 25J, 28,800bph with GMT function. This adjusted replica movement is surely good enough to support all the functions working well as per original.

Front glass is made of sapphire crystal with colorless AR coating, and Noob factory’s technique on this meets Swiss standards, the quality is here. It is a leather strap with Tang buckle to match the case. Looking into the details, every single detail is just as per original. From the solid back case with random serial engraving M XXX/1000 is so real. GMT function is very useful for those who need to travel a lot, but there are more and more people just like it even they don’t travel a lot. I think I am one of them too.
