Panerai LAB-ID Luminor 1950 Carbotech 3 Days PAM 700 Replica Watch Hands-On

Alongside the Panerai BMG-TECH which also centers around the use of fancy, high-tech materials, the Panerai LAB-ID Luminor 1950 Carbotech 3 Days PAM 700 Replica demonstrates the capabilities of the Laboratorio di Idee, which operates as Panerai’s R&D department based in Neuchâtel. Like some of Panerai’s previous timepieces, the watch utilizes a material known as Carbotech that serves on both functional and aesthetic levels. While I can’t dispute the use of carbon composites for the sake of their mechanical advantage, I can’t help but notice just how well the deep shaded layers of the Carbotech interact with the minimal blue luminous dial and crystal Panerai incorporated here.

The Panerai LAB-ID Luminor 1950 Carbotech 3 Days PAM 700’s case is sized at a substantial 49mm. Much of the larger size is offset by the Carbotech’s characteristic lightweight features. It displays thick layers of the carbon fiber composite and, as I mentioned previously, this creates interesting visual effects with both the luminous blue and deep black tones on the dial. This layered effect even carries on into the crown-protecting device Cheap Panerai Replica is known for. The matte finishing is also a nice inclusion to the watch’s stealthy and high-precision look. Additionally, the case boasts 100 meters of water-resistance.

On the dial, Panerai Replica Watches uses carbon nanotubes meant to absorb any trace of light that hits it, resulting in a deep, deep black. The blue Super-LumiNova used throughout the numerals and markers on the “sandwich-style” dial pops against the black tone and is also incorporated into the hands. It almost reminds me of single beams of light piercing through miles of deep oceanic abyss. Overall, I find the dial to be as legible as it gets considering its high contrast and massive size.

The crystal itself has the text “Luminor, Panerai, LAB-ID,” printed directly onto it, and I think this is where some people might find issues with the watch. Because the text is printed onto the crystal itself, it will inevitably get in the way of the hands, which could throw some people off when trying to read the time. Personally, I find that it serves as an interesting solution to the fact that Panerai Replica could not print text on the carbon nanotube dial. Additionally, the crystal features double anti-reflective coating.

Taking a look at the case back, we find the caliber P.3001/C in all its deep, dark glory. One of my favorite features is the power reserve indicator that uses the same blue accents found on the dial. Power reserve is three days and the movement operates at 21,600vph. For convenience while time setting, Luxury Panerai Watches included a seconds reset function that returns the seconds hand to the 12 o’clock position. It’s a feature that seems to grow increasingly popular and is definitely something I can appreciate.

No surprise here, the strap on the Best Panerai Replica Watches carries the black and blue scheme. The same dark tones found throughout the watch carry on all the way through the buckle and the blue contrast stitching ties together the look.

Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 Amagnetic 3 Days Automatic Titanio PAM01389 Replica Watch Hands-On

The new Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 Amagnetic 3 Days Automatic Titanio PAM01389 Replica brings a few neat updates to the 389, without compromising the overall execution or design intent of the original. But unless you’re Sly Stallone or a Paneristi die-hard, that might not exactly be a good thing.

Technically speaking, the 389 was significant not just for its debut screen time, but for its build, as it exhibited the brand’s first ceramic bezel in a Luminor model, and it was the first anti-magnetic watch produced by Cheap Panerai Replica. It’s quite a handsome look – introducing a modern, industrial dive watch vibe to the the austere, minimalist aesthetic that’s defined the Panerai design language for the last 60 years or so.

The applied hourly indices are now a razor’s edge thicker, the running small seconds hand at 9:00 is now a cheerful shade of blue, and the luminous application to the hands and indices is now two-tone – the minute hand glows blue to match the bezel pip, while all other markings glow green.

Most notably though, the new 1389 has been updated with Panerai Replica Watches newest automatic caliber: the P.9010, which carries the same double-barreled, 3-day power reserve as its in-house manufactured predecessor, but now adds an independently adjustable hour hand – a feature that’s becoming increasingly common on many modern Panerai models, and a boon for frequent fliers.

The one thing that hasn’t changed between the 389 and the 1389, is that this is still, a very big Best Panerai Replica Watches at 47mm. Yes, it’s considerably lighter than a comparable 47mm PAM00372 in stainless steel, but the weight savings do little to reduce the watch’s visual presence, which threatens to overwhelm at most angles.

That said, if you love the undeniably cool aesthetic of the 1389, there’s always the more traditionally-sized 42mm PAM682, but you miss out on the anti-magnetic capabilities and ceramic bezel, along with the ability for the dial to double as a serving plate in a pinch. Kidding aside, it’s clear that the rest of the industry has been responding to a return to smaller sizes – 43mm seems to be the new 42, down from the 45 and 47mm Luxury Panerai Watches that once dominated Panerai’s modern collection. That’s why another 47mm watch in 2017 actually feels a little dated right out of the gate – despite its undeniably cool, and classic aesthetic.
