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


Add to all this research that Mr. Jose Pereztroika of all perezcope.com has conducted — see here and you will discover the Mare Nostrum’s case layout actually is nearer to what Panerai Watches Nz Replica was performing at the mid-1950s, rather than in the early ’40s. Panerai has a fairly poorly recorded history and the Mare Nostrum is a fitting example — there is one actual detailed image from the ’50s, the one that you see further over, and that’s about it. Still, the Mare Nostrum has existed and it is for everyone to determine how much weight they provide to the simple fact of whether or not Italian navy commanders were rocking it during World War II.Worry not, however, if you believed this new release was likely to be as massive as that from a 74 decades ago, or its 52mm tribute-pieces from 2010 and 2015. The Panerai Mare Nostrum Chronograph PAM716 steps just 42mm wide. This is not a new-found thing either. There were some limited editions produced in Panerai’s pre-Vendome era. On a side note, “pre-V” is probably used so much since Panerai, auctioneers and lovers of the brand likely much prefer calling it the obscure “pre-Vendome” instead of “pre-Richemont” that only mortal watch enthusiasts could understand.Back on topic: back in the mid-90s, Panerai introduced the mention 5218-301/A, a 42mm-wide bit that’s remarkably close in its own look to this new Panerai Mare Nostrum PAM716. It was also followed by 2 Slytech pieces, in harmony with Panerai’s love reaching its climax with celebrity Sylvester Stallone — who, in fact, has done a whole lot by helping expose the then-largely-unknown brand, and who remains a lover of Panerai for this day.

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