The use of materials in innovative and beneficial ways is the current “space race” in contemporary mechanical watches, and Panerai wants to show that it’s no slouch in this arena. The brand-new-for-2017 Panerai LAB-ID Luminor 1950 Carbotech 3 Days PAM 700 Replica watch utilizes different materials in its movement that have reduced friction to a minimum.
The Panerai LAB-ID Luminor 1950 Carbotech 3 Days PAM 700 watch is able to make its 50-year promise due to four innovations utilized in the new P.3001/C Calibre movement. The first of these innovations is the use of dry lubricated barrels, in which the two mainspring barrels have a multi-layer coating with a final layer of DLC. Then, Swiss Panerai Replica Watches there is the silicon escapement which is predominantly made of silicon and also has an uppermost coating of DLC. Thirdly, the main bridges and plate are done using a low-friction composite material that integrates Tantalum-based ceramic and removes the need for additional lubrication. This reduces the need for jewels and their requisite lubrication because pivot friction is already minimized due to the composite’s high carbon percentage.
Moving on to the Luxury Panerai Replica Watches dial, Panerai coated it with carbon nanotubes. What this has done is that it essentially allows the dial to absorb more light and reduce reflection while enhancing the blackness of dial and making the blue Superluminova on the hands and markers look even more vivid. Since they couldn’t print or stamp on the dial, the text and figures are applied straight onto the crystal which then has the double-antireflective coating applied.
The 49mm-wide case is water-resistant to 100M and is made of Carbotech, which is a carbon-fibre based composite we’ve seen in a few Panerai Replica Watches in the recent past. Thin sheets of carbon fiber are compressed at high pressures in a controlled temperature with a polymer called PEEK, a process which binds the two and makes the resulting product stronger.
Seeing the integration of innovative materials in watch movements is something I’m looking forward to following closely. Making the need for lubrication superfluous while boasting a 50-year guarantee is a good way for Best Panerai Replica Review and their Liboratorio Di Idee, or LAB-ID, division to get attention, and I doubt it’s a claim they’d make unless they felt safe that it’s realistic.
