All the finishing seems to be machine-produced, however, the borders of the plates and the countersinks are well beveled and polished nevertheless — adding a bit of flair to an otherwise very technical looking motion. Texts are in blue and are very tastefully performed in relatively small, discreet letters — and yet this still contrasts nicely against the subtle, horizontal brushed finishing of this plates.Overall, the P.5000 is a taste that is developed in the meaning that it doesn’t at all want to be the prettiest, most shockingly good-looking movement out there — however, on a personal note, part of me is happy about that and I love that Panerai appears to have thought this through and proceeded with something which complements their army styling and legacy more. The P.5000 additionally includes an impressively low number of components at only 127 in total.A power reserve indicator arguably would have been a nice component but would definitely have pushed up the price and added more complexity. So, in this instance and paired with the 192-hour power book, I did not overlook it that much.Price for the Panerai Luminor Base 8 Days Acciaio PAM561 is CHF 5,700, which will be CHF 1,200 dearer than the PAM630, which has essentially the exact same dial (distinct lume color and base logo at 6) but the OP I (ETA 6497) hand-wound motion instead of the P.5000. In other words, the P.5000 with its 8-day power reserve will run you an additional CHF 1,200 that, for anyone familiar with Swiss luxury watch pricing techniques, really is not that big of a jump.Sticking using the P.5000, Panerai has a vast range of choices into the PAM561 including the exact same watch with a black dial (PAM560) in addition to a titanium-clad model (PAM562) for CHF 600 more.
At SIHH 2015 Panerai Watches To Buy Replica will unveil the Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Ceramica, a variation of its Luminor chronograph, in matte black ceramic.
Two years ago Panerai unveiled its P.9100 in-house chronograph movement, a self-winding calibre with a condensed chronograph display featuring just two central hands. First available only in steel or gold, the P.9100 has now made its way into the new Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Ceramica PAM580 with a black ceramic case. The look of the new chronograph is classic Panerai: the case is matte black ceramic with a 44 mm diameter, while the dial and hands have faux vintage ivory Super Luminova.
The chronograph has just two hands, both mounted on the central axis of the dial. A blue hands records the elapsed seconds, while the rhodium plated hand just below does the same for the minutes. In addition the chronograph has a flyback function. Constant seconds is displayed in the sub-dial at nine o’clock, with the date just across. A sapphire display back – tinted grey as Panerai has done with other ceramic watches – reveals the P.9100 movement. It has a three day power reserve as well as the usual bells and whistles of a modern chronograph, like a column wheel and vertical clutch.
The price of the Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Ceramica has yet to be announced, but it will be between US$12,800 and US$30,900, which are the prices of the same model in steel and rose gold respectively. An educated guess would peg it at around US$18,000.
