This year, replica Panerai’s theme was billed as ‘Innovation’ – and also the brand did not disappoint. In unique, we have been impressed by the new LAB-ID Luminor 1950 replica Carbotech 3 Days (PAM00700).
This rugged 49mm replica watch utilizes carbon in a unprecedented way. First of all, its in-house P.3001/C calibre makes utilization of materials and coatings based on carbon to help minimise friction amongst the movement’s elements – reducing the want for external lubrication. Actually, it’s so high-tech and efficient how the movement continues to be guaranteed for Fifty years.
Then there’s the dial, which is covered with carbon nanotubes which might be arranged to take in light and for that reason reduce reflection (the extremely black dial is offset by the blue hands and hour markers).
And lastly, this watch case is produced from Carbotech, an amalgamated material obtained by compressing ultra-thin layers of graphite with each other having a special polymer in a controlled temperature to create a material that’s lightweight, hypoallergenic and non-corrosive. This approach also suggests that each and every case is distinctive.
