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.
