Introducing The Panerai Luminor Marina Fibratech 44mm (PAM01663)
Continuing their drive into cutting edge composites, Panerai has quite recently declared an exemplary 44mm Luminor Marina with a case made of a particular material got from mineral basalt strands. One more venture from the brand’s Skunk Works-like Laboratorio di Idee, the PAM01663 Luminor Marina Fibratech 44mm takes quite possibly the most work of art and notable shapes in watches and delivers the case in this exceptional new material, which has at no other time been utilized in watchmaking.
Said to be 60% lighter than steel, Panerai’s Fibratech is conceived of the aeronautic trade (like most incredible things) and is made by restricting unidirectional mineral filaments in polymer to make dainty layers that can be combined with warmth to make the case shape (which sounds freely like fiberglass or even a few kinds of carbon fiber). The outcome has a finished matte dark completion, the example of which is remarkable to each case creation and cutting cycle. For those looking carefully, the bezel and crown connect switch are made of Carbotech, another in-house Panerai composite that we’ve seen utilized in the formation of a small bunch of past models (counting the new and comparative Luminor Marina Carbotech).
Powered by Panerai’s programmed P.9010 development and water-impervious to 300 meters, the PAM01663 has a force save of three days and ticks at a welcome 4 Hz. The genuine story here is the recently evolved case material and, while no comment is made regarding Fibratech’s scratch opposition (a vital worry for any case material), the lighter weight and dull shading will probably feel (and look) incredible on wrist.
Finished with an inclination dim blue dial, the Fibratech unquestionably looks incredible on the off chance that you have the wrist for a 44mm Luminor (and a preference for the long-standing appeal of the Luminor), particularly coordinated with its woven rubber treated blue lash. Nothing wears like a Luminor, and seeing as Panerai has had longstanding accomplishment with more direct steel emphasess, it’s of little amazement that they would look to offer something more extraordinary to those all around knowledgeable with the brand and the cornucopia of past Luminors. As a feature of the as of late invigorated Luminor arrangement, the $16,000 PAM01663 Fibratech openings well above past steel alternatives (and for sure a large part of the Luminor Due line) and offers a comparative take as the $12,800 Luminor Marina Carbotech that was dispatched before this year.
