Although Carbotech is a material used by Replica Panerai since 2015 when it launched the PAM616, there have only been nine references made with it: six Submersibles, the Luminor Luna Rossa Regatta and the Luminor Marina Carbotech PAM661 launched in 2016. The latter is precisely the model that evolves towards the reference that we analyze today, the PAM1661.
Returning to Carbotech, let us remember that it is an ultra-light compound formed by overlapping layers of carbon fiber that are aligned alternately, Panerai Replica and which are subsequently consolidated under pressure and at a controlled temperature with a bonding matrix, based on PEEK. Very resistant to external shocks and corrosion, it is recognizable by its banded aesthetic appearance, created by its irregular texture so that each piece has a unique character.
Fortunately, the Luxury Panerai PAM1661 Replica abandons this design to return to a much more recognizable image through a sphere with stick-type indexes and a “sandwich” structure. But the key detail is that the bottom plate of this architecture implements a Super-LumiNova in bright blue, a shade already implemented in three Submersible, achieving a monochrome appearance that perfectly combines with the futuristic and technological image of the Carbotech.
That Panerai Replica Watch spectacular mechanism did not need lubrication thanks to the use of various materials: a composite based on tantalum and ceramic, several layers of DLC coating and silicon for exhaust.
