KW Factory Best Replica Panerai Luminor GMT Ceramica PAM 438 Review

KW is a factory established by Turks in Guangzhou, China. This factory specializes in producing high-quality Panerai replicas, including the Panerai GMT 441 replica I reviewed earlier. The Panerai GMT 441 is a ceramic Panerai watch, but unlike the Panerai GMT 438, it is not entirely ceramic. The Panerai GMT 438 produced by KW is a 1:1 replica of the genuine watch, with the size and other details closely matching the original, making it almost flawless.

When I first received this watch, it felt slightly heavy, weighing about 115 grams. I could sense its high-quality texture, but due to the ceramic material, it is lighter than other Panerai GMT watches made of stainless steel. In my opinion, ceramic has many advantages, such as a refined texture, scratch resistance, and color retention. The Panerai GMT 438 has a case diameter of 44 millimeters, similar to the Panerai GMT 441. The bezel, case head, and case back of the Panerai GMT 438 all feature a screw-down structure, which provides convenience for wearers who want to clean the dial.

Both the front and back crystals are made of sapphire, offering great hardness and high scratch resistance. Under the sapphire crystal, the dial looks very clear, especially in sunlight, maintaining readability. The texture of the black dial complements the black ceramic case. The dial features the same classic sandwich structure as the genuine watch, with a hollowed-out upper disc and a lower disc covered with durable luminous material. This design makes the hour markers appear more three-dimensional.

Additionally, the corners of the ceramic crown bridge are smoothly polished, ensuring comfortable wear.

Regarding the movement, the PAM 438 replica uses a black movement referenced as P.9001/B. To create an all-black watch, Panerai developed this blackened P.9001/B movement. KW factory used the Shanghai 7750 movement to replicate this, with DLC-coated movement bridges making the P.9001/B the most aesthetically pleasing movement among all Panerai replicas.

The bracelet is entirely made of ceramic, except for the black steel deployant clasp. There are many more details to discuss about this replica watch, and it is indeed one of the best-selling Panerai GMT replicas on the market. If any of you have purchased this watch, I would love to hear your opinions. Currently, the only ceramic watch I still keep in my collection is the Panerai GMT 438, and I absolutely love it.
