Cheap Panerai Replica LAB-ID Luminor 1950 Carbotech 3 Days – 49mm

Panerai ushered a new, high-tech material into the watchmaking world with the launch of the Luminor Submersible 1950 Carbotech. At this year’s SIHH, the brand goes even more boldly experimental with the Cheap Panerai Replica LAB-ID Luminor 1950 Carbotech 3 Days – 49mm, which combines a Carbotech case with a deep black, light-absorbing dial and a lubrication-free mechanical movement.

The Panerai Replica Watches, which is limited to just 50 pieces, is the latest product from Panerai’s Laboratorio di Idee division, which is devoted to finding horological inspiration in the world of high technology. The watch’s 49-mm Luminor 1950 case — including its hallmark bridge device and locking lever to protect the crown — is made of carbotech, a composite material based on carbon fiber with an uneven, matte black appearance which varies according to the cutting of the material, making each case essentially a unique piece. Panerai Replica structure is designed to enhance both its aesthetics and performance. To form the plates that give the material its distinctive look, thin sheets of carbon fibers are compressed at a controlled temperature under high pressure together with a high-end polymer, PEEK , which binds the composite material, making it even stronger and more durable. The carbon fibers used are very long, to ensure aesthetic uniformity, and the sheets are superimposed and pressed together in such a way that the fibers of each layer are set at a different angle to the ones above and below it. The resulting material boasts mechanical properties much higher than those of similar materials used in watchmaking, such as ceramics and titanium. Carbotech, according to Panerai Replica Watches For Sale, is lighter than both and more resistant to corrosion as well as being hypoallergenic.

The dial — in Panerai’s familiar “sandwich” style — features blue-colored Super-LumiNova shining through the cut-out hour markers and indices; the luminous substance also appears on the hands and on the small seconds subdial at 9 o’clock. Its deep matte-black appearance comes from a coating of carbon nanotubes, used here for the first time on a watch dial, which has been specially developed to absorb light, reducing reflection to a minimum. Because it is not possible to print or stamp any elements onto the coated dial, Panerai Replica Watches UK watchmakers had to form the figures of the Panerai logo and LAB-ID text directly onto the dial’s sapphire crystal, to which a double anti-reflective treatment has been applied.

Inside the watch is Panerai’s manual-winding Caliber P.3001/C, which stores a power reserve of three days. This new version of the movement has been partially skeletonized, functions without the need for additional lubrication, and includes only four jewels. Panerai Replica Watches China devised a wide range of solutions, associated with the unique properties of carbon, to overhaul individual parts of the movement, including the plates, bridges, barrels, escapement and anti-shock device, all of which use self-lubricating and dry lubricating materials.

The movement — whose rear side hosts the watch’s power reserve indicator — is visible through the large sapphire window in the caseback. In addition to its skeletonized bridges and barrels with their meticulous technical finishing, Best Panerai Replica Watches Swiss Movement distinctive features include a large balance wheel, fixed by a bridge with twin supports and oscillating at a frequency of 3 Hz. It also features a hacking seconds device, which stops the balance and returns the seconds hand to zero when setting the time, so that the watch can be perfectly synchronized with a reference signal.

Typical characteristics of this Swiss-made, Italian-designed brand include a satin-finished and pillow-shaped case with a polished bezel, a protective stirrup with a lever used to press the crown firmly into the case, and a distinctively styled dial with large Arabic numerals and hour indices. The 3 Days GMT watch is a faithful interpretation of the original Panerai Replica UK model, which debuted in 1950 as a watch for Italian Navy divers. but it isn’t essentially different from other Panerai watches. The unmistakable family resemblance of its products is both a strength and a weakness of this brand: if you aren’t fond of this one’s design, you probably won’t find any other Panerai model to suit you. On the other hand, every Panerai watch is immediately recognizable to the brand’s many fans. And judging by the staying power of Panerai’s retro design, the Luminor 3 Days will probably be just as appealing to collectors 10 years from now – which cannot be said about every contemporary watch.

Careful scrutiny uncovered a few specks of dust on the hands, which were stamped from rather thin stock, which causes them to bend toward the polished eyelet at the center of the dial. There’s also an obvious break in the satin finishing above the lugs, which accept the crosspiece that holds the strap.
In all other respects, however, the case is excellently crafted. It also scores points for its quick-change system for the strap lugs. A special tool, delivered with the Cheap Panerai Replica, can be used to press a button on the underside of each lug, making it easy to push out the crosspiece, remove the leather strap and install the alternate rubber one that is also included.
