SIHH 2015: Panerai Unveils Its First Carbon Fibre Watch, The Luminor Submersible 1950 Carbotech Eta Movement Replica Watches


If you desire this motion and case size but with vintage styling, the PAM590 is the pick, however, the P.5000 comes in the 45mm Radiomir case for the exact same cost (CHF 5,700). All this is to say you have an unusually high number of choice choices to the PAM561 which makes it easier (or more difficult?) To locate one that matches your taste more. Add to this the innumerable strap options and you do have a mind-numbing number of variants — perhaps a few too many, even.Overall, the Panerai Luminor Base 8 Days Acciaio PAM561 is a fun, if not exciting watch in the Panerai Luminor secure and I wouldn’t mind wearing for an even more extended period of time. This mentioned, I don’t believe it’s everything going for it to be a keeper, more like a refreshing addition which you wear then market to move onto another Panerai that tickles your fancy — since that’s often how it works, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.The utilization of materials in advanced and beneficial ways is your current “space race” in contemporary mechanical watches, and Panerai wishes to show that it’s no slouch in this arena. In reality, the brand asserts that this decrease of friction should allow the movement to be “guaranteed for 50 years” due to the fact it doesn’t require lubrication. I’ll get into the details of it a little bit more, but it is a interesting development that just 50 people will get to enjoy for today, since that’s the variety of bits that are going to be reached within this limited edition run.The Panerai LAB-ID Luminor 1950 Carbotech 3 Days PAM 700 watch is able to make its 50-year promise because of four inventions utilized in the new P.3001/C Calibre movement. The first of those innovations is that the use of dry lubricated barrels, where the two mainspring barrels have a multi-layer coating with a final coating of DLC. Then, there’s the silicon escapement which is predominantly made of silicon and also features an uppermost coating of DLC.

For the new Luminor Submersible 1950 Carbotech PAM616, Panerai Watches To Buy Replica has turned to a carbon fibre reinforced polymer known as Carbotech for the case, bezel and crown lever bridge, the first time Panerai has used a carbon fibre composite.

Long popular with brands like Hublot and Richard Mille, it is now Panerai‘s turn to use carbon fibre composite for a watch case. The new Luminor Submersible 1950 Carbotech 3 Days Automatic (PAM00616) is named after the carbon fibre reinforced polymer used for make the case, bezel and crown lock bridge. Carbon fibre composites like Carbotech have a characteristic wave-like pattern due to the layering process used to make the material. Sheets of carbon fibre are laid on top of each other, with a polymer resin in between to hold it together. It is then put in an autoclave, a sort of high pressure oven, resulting in a light and strong composite. The distinctive striped appearance is due to the layers of carbon fibre inside.

Rated to 300 m, like most of the other Panerai Submersible watches, the case is 47 mm in diameter, with blue accents on the dial as well as parchment coloured Super-Luminova.

While the case is carbon composite, the screw-down back is titanium due to the fact that carbon fibre composite not reacting well to torsional (or twisting) forces. The PAM616 is equipped with the P.9000 automatic movement and a rubber strap. The Submersible Carbotech is part of the regular collection, with pricing yet to be announced.
