Power book is, you guessed it, three times involving two barrels. Another thing worth mentioning is that there’s a moments reset function, so when the time has been set the balance stops and the seconds hand returns to zero.Moving on into the Panerai LAB-ID Luminor 1950 Carbotech 3 Days PAM 700 dialup, Panerai coated it with carbon nanotubes. This has done is that it essentially allows the dial to consume more light and reduce reflection when enhancing the blackness of dial and producing the gloomy Superluminova on the palms and markers seem more vivid. Since they couldn’t publish or postage on the dial, the text and figures are applied straight onto the crystal that then has the double-antireflective coating applied.The 49mm-wide instance is water-resistant to 100M and is constructed from Carbotech, which can be a carbon-fibre based publication we’ve seen within some Panerai watches at the recent past. Thin sheets of carbon fiber are compacted at high pressures in a controlled temperature using a polymer named PEEK (Polyether Ether Ketone), a procedure which binds both and leaves the resulting product stronger.Seeing the integration of advanced materials in watch moves is something I am looking forward to following closely. Making the need for lubrication superfluous while boasting a 50-year guarantee is a good way for both Panerai and their Liboratorio Di Idee, or LAB-ID, division for attention, and I doubt it is a claim they would make unless they felt secure that it’s realistic.It contains just two series-coupled mainspring barrels that together supply 8 days worth of electricity reserve, though you do only get a 3 Hertz operating frequency.
For the new Luminor Submersible 1950 Carbotech PAM616, Panerai 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.
