Panerai takes the popular Luminor case design and build it up with contemporary material: a carbon fiber composite, which has never been used to construct a watch before. Its matte black appearance combines well with this military themed watch, named: “PAM 616 Luminor Submersible 1950 Carbotech”.

The structure of carbotech are made up of layers of carbon fiber bound together with a polymer (PEEK-Polyether Ether Ketone) to form a bulk of material. After this process the substance is cut and molded through a much more demanding process, than the work steel or gold would require. But, unlike titanium or ceramics; carbotech is a lighter material and won’t suffer corrosion. And also helps keep the Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 Carbotech, 47mm case on the light side while hanging from the wrist.

The PAM 616 is powered by Panerai’s in-house P.9000 movement. It’s automatic and features a 72h power reserve, summing up 3 days. The dial is black with applied hour markers (they emit a green luminous glow in the dark), the date window is at 3 o’clock and the small seconds counter highlighted with blue details is at 9 o’clock. The screw-in caseback is made of titanium with black prescriptions and the classic Panerai, city and date of birth “Firenze 1860” (Florence 1860) etched in. As well as, the “slow speed torpedo” with two Italian Navy commandos sailing upon it, also etched on the watches caseback; just like they’ve done in before while wearing Panerai timepieces.

A shinny blue “OP” (Officine Panerai) logo matching the blue highlights on the dial, have been added to its black rubber strap. Panerai had never before used the color blue for its logo, so that’s another first, along with the carbon fiber material, for this: Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 Carbotech.

The PAM 616, Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 Carbotech is a limited edition of only 500 pieces.
