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


Aside from the motion, the case silhouette, which sandwich dial, another signature element of this Luminor household of watches is that lever-operated safety system for dogging down the crown. The curved shoulder lever has a small roller on the end of it which, when you lock it down, then presses the wafer-shaped crown from a gasket in the crown tube, sealing the eye. It is more elaborate than the usual screw-down crown, but it also features an extremely positive system for ensuring water stays from the case and it is a great alternative to the slightly fiddly feeling of a screwed-down crown (and there is no risk of cross-threading either, as occasionally happens with watches whose crowns are screwed into place). Another huge benefit of the locking lever is it is just plain fun to play with, and although to do so too much is kind of against the soul of the watch (the entire point of an eight day movement was to decrease to a minimum the amount of time the crown is in an unlocked position) in precisely the exact same time you will probably find the impulse to play with it irresistible.Despite the size, this is only one of the easiest-to-wear watches I’ve ever had on. Thanks to this thick but still pliable strap, which tapers in thickness from the lugs into the tip, it seems really secure and it is a pleasure to have on. The very best thing about it, aside from the chance to play with the locking lever, is your dial; this item glows like a harvest moon.This is a tiny personal note; my first memory of a watch was my Dad’s Benrus, shining like mad in 1968, therefore any watch that lights up the night that the way PAM 560 does is fine by me. The motion is a far better piece of work than I gave it credit for initially. It’s honest, it looks bulletproof and it’s a ton of really pleasant chronometric features hard to find at this cost, and if you would like something with the total amount of design the PAM 560 has that also has a totally free balance and 8 times of gasoline in the tank it’s a very small list. I’m a late convert to the Panerai Watches Nottingham Replica faithful and I’m not saying that there are other watches available for this price point that don’t offer you a wonderful value as well — but then again, they aren’t Panerais.

For the new Luminor Submersible 1950 Carbotech PAM616, Panerai Watch Origin Country 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.
