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

Apart from the movement, the situation shape, and that sandwich dial, another signature element of the Luminor household of watches is the fact that lever-operated safety system for dogging down the crown. This system is simple, powerful, and clever. The curved shoulder lever includes a small roller on the end of it that, if you lock it down, then presses the wafer-shaped crown from a gasket in the crown tube, sealing the eye. It’s more complicated than a screw-down crown, but it also features an extremely positive system for ensuring water stays out of the situation and it is an excellent alternative to the slightly neater sense of a screwed-down crown (and there’s no probability of cross-threading either, as sometimes happens with watches whose crowns are screwed into position). Another huge advantage of this locking lever is it’s just plain fun to play, and even though to do so too much is kind of against the spirit of the watch (the entire point of an eight day movement was to reduce to a minimum the period of time the crown is in an unlocked place) in precisely the exact same time you will probably find the impulse to play with it irresistible.Despite the dimensions, this is only one of the easiest-to-wear watches I have ever had on. As a result of this thick but still pliable strap, which tapers in thickness from the lugs to the tip, it feels really secure and it’s a pleasure to have on. The best thing about it, other than the opportunity to play with the locking lever, is the dial; this item glows like a crop moon.This is a tiny private note; my very first memory of a watch was my Dad’s Benrus, glowing like mad in 1968, therefore any watch that lights up at the night the way PAM 560 does is fine by me. The movement is a far better piece of work than I gave it credit for initially. It is fair, it appears bulletproof and it has a ton of really pleasant chronometric characteristics difficult to see this cost, and if you want something with the amount of style the PAM 560 has this also includes a free sprung balance and 8 times of gas in the tank it’s a very small list. I’m a late convert to the Panerai faithful and I am not saying there are not other watches available for this price point that do not offer a wonderful value as well — but then again they are not Panerais.

For the new Luminor Submersible 1950 Carbotech PAM616, Panerai Watches Kuala Lumpur 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.
