The Cheap Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 Replica has already appeared in ceramic, titanium, bronze, and even a Bulk Metallic Glass case. However, the true showcase for Panerai’s plunge into cutting-edge technical materials is the LAB-ID PAM00700 with a carbon case and a lube-free movement thanks to the latest generation, low friction composites inside.
With its whopping 60mm steel case, prominent crown bridge and lever, the Panerai Replica Watches featured a large rotating bezel with four studs bearing reference numbers to check the duration of the dive. The crown protector and lever and the four studs on the bezel have been inherited by the Luminor Submersible 1950 family.
Unequivocally Panerai, the matte black dial displays two oversized Arabic numerals at 12 and 6 o’clock and a generous coating of ‘aged’ lume in a beige tone. The Panerai Replica UK dots marking the hours, the two numerals, the tips of the hands and the four batons on the small seconds feature the beige lume that glows green in the dark. A touch of ‘Panerai blue’ adds vibrancy to the dial and denotes the small seconds counter on the left at 9 o’clock.
Is this what the Swiss Panerai Replica professional military dive watches might have looked like if carbon fibre had been available back then? I have a strong inkling that Officine Panerai’s alchemists would have warmed to this material thanks to its camouflage/stealth appeal, lightness and resilience.
