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


Typical Panerai treats include the reassuringly snappy crown guard lever — that I liked to fiddle with whenever I had a short moment to spare in a queue or on public transport. It is a thing I find myself reaching for and disappointedly not discovering following strapping on other watches. Also appreciated was the 24mm lug width which opens up a nearly infinite supply of strap options.Panerai will market you calf and buffalo leather straps from CHF 220 going around CHF 360 to get alligator ones. But honestly, now, there’s such a vast selection of aftermarket straps that you would be tremendously encouraged to shop around there (and support those men, too). If anything, this black-on-black option I think is somewhat secure and dull, especially because this white dial version is about more vivid colors and forcing regular, safe aesthetics into the side a bit. Aside from appearances, wearability is as great as it’s with a Panerai, as the watch is held company and secure as a result of its ample width, depth, and rigidity of the strap and its massive, Panerai-marked pin buckle.The dial is much more unusual not simply in its colour but also in its mark, together with Arabic numerals all around (unlike a more average Panerai dials that just have numerals for 12, 6, 3, and 9 with baton markers everywhere else) plus an additional plus, again, rarer 60-minute monitor on the periphery.

For the new Luminor Submersible 1950 Carbotech PAM616, Panerai Watch Box For Sale 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.
