Beginning of the year 2015 turned to be very successful for Officine Panerai, which presented four new products at SIHH. All these wristwatches were developed on the basis of previously released and well-known models like Radiomir or Mare Nostrum. But one Panerai novelty was really special, since it was made of carbon. This is completely new technology for the brand, and it keeps this secret very carefully.
But now forget for a minute about all the secrets and let me show you this innovation. If you are a connoisseur of Panerai wristwatches, this case might be familiar to you. Exactly, Panerai Carbotech has a traditional Luminor 1950 case with 47mm in diameter. All the pointers and time indicators are luminescent. Date is at its usual place. Dial is absolutely secure thanks to scratch-resistant sapphire glass. Panerai Carbotech would be a reliable wristwatch for deep-water diver, as it stays waterproof at the depth up to 300 meters, and special support holder shows duration of your submersion. Carbon material is also one more advantage for divers. It’s durable, solid (and light at the same time), corrosion resistant and not allergenic. Wristlet is rubber, but the clasp didn’t undergo any changes – it is still made of titanium, which is more suitable for fastener. Power reserve of this wristwatch comes to 3 days.
Carbotech wristwatch has somehow combined a material of the future with history and spirit of Panerai. You can recognize original Panerai design from the first sight, but the material is so unusual, that this wristwatch looks very futuristic. Anyway, Carbotech timepiece would be a good choice for a modern person, who still loves original traditions of the brand.
