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

All the finishing appears to be machine-produced, but the borders of the plates and the countersinks are well beveled and polished still — adding a little flair to an otherwise very technical looking motion. The P.5000 also contains an impressively low variety of elements at just 127 in total.A power reserve indicator arguably could have been a wonderful element but would definitely have pushed up the cost and added sophistication. Therefore, in this instance and paired with all the 192-hour power book, I did not miss it much.Price for its the Panerai Luminor Base 8 Days Acciaio PAM561 is CHF 5,700, that will be CHF 1,200 dearer than the PAM630, which has essentially the same dial (distinct lume color and base emblem at 6) but the OP that I (ETA 6497) hand-wound motion as opposed to this P.5000. To put it differently, the P.5000 with its 8-day power book will run you an extra CHF 1,200 that, for anyone familiar with Swiss luxury watch pricing practices, actually is not that big of a jump.Sticking with all the P.5000, Panerai has a wide range of choices into the PAM561 including the same watch with a black dial (PAM560) as well as a titanium-clad model (PAM562) for CHF 600 more.

For the new Luminor Submersible 1950 Carbotech PAM616, Panerai Watch 2015 Price 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.
