SIHH 2015: Panerai Unveils Its First Carbon Fibre Watch, The Luminor Submersible 1950 Carbotech Replica Buyers Guide


Needless to say, the exact same motion is packed to the PAM563 that’s essentially the exact same watch only using a running seconds sub-dial at nine — it even has the exact same component count for the motion, it is just that the dial has an opening for those moments pinion to come through and has a hand installed on it. It is a good CHF 500 costlier which is quite a lot for the same motion and only an added complication — but the look of the watch does shift to something considerably more complicated by it.Thirdly, the main plate and bridges are done utilizing a low-friction composite substance that integrates Tantalum-based ceramic and removes the need for additional lubrication. This reduces the need for jewels and their requisite lubrication since pivot friction is lessened as a result of the composite high carbon percent. Because of this, only four stones are used and in addition, they possess a DLC coating onto them eliminating the need to further lubricate the Incabloc shock system.I assume to some extent that’s in line with a few moves Panerai used ages ago, but in truth, here it is actually about extending that power book as much as possible.

For the new Luminor Submersible 1950 Carbotech PAM616, Panerai Watches On Finance 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.
