Last week we showed you Panerai’s new dress watch, the Luminor Due , and today we’re going to take a gander at all different curiosities that were introduced to us during the new presentation in Amsterdam. First there’s a significant update to the Luminor 1950 and there’s another Luminor 1950 Carbotech. Let’s have a more intensive look of our opinion about the update for the Luminor 1950, and what is our opinion about the new Carbotech? Anyway first we’ll give you an impression of the area for the introduction, which is definitely justified even despite a visit at whatever point you are in Amsterdam.
The Panerai Event
The event area was the shiny new (scarcely opened) Amsterdam Tower, an exceptional idea to work, eat, rave, and rest. It is the brainchild of ID&T fellow benefactor Duncan Stutterheim and draftsman Ben van Berkel. The pinnacle will have a gathering of innovative companies with an energy for music. There’s A’DAM & Co , a private individuals’ club, there’s Restaurant Moon , there’s Restaurant and Skybar Ma’dam and substantially more. Examine their site ( click here ) for more information.

Panerai concluded that this would be the ideal area for dispatching another age of watches. And it was. Everything is new to the point that you at first think everything is as yet under development. And keeping in mind that there were still a great deal of exercises going on, there wasn’t any development work, but the destined to be opened Sir Adam Hotel , was being furnished. The void parking structure was loaded with persuading slogans.
Panerai Luminor 1950 Update – same DNA, yet thinner!
Besides the Luminor Due (would we be able to call it Panerai’s first dress watch?) a few other new models were appeared, highlighting a new development. The new development, type P.9010, enabled a decrease in the event that thickness to 13.2mm for the 42mm models and a decrease to 15.65mm for the 44mm models. Since seems like a little decrease, nonetheless while on the wrist you really notice it. Also, you will predominantly see it when you need to wear a legitimate Panerai with the ‘heft’ you anticipate from it, with your shirt and coat. Odds are it will fit better under your cuff.
The 42mm models, both old and the new 42mm models are water-impervious to 10 bar. That’s not as much as what we would anticipate from a lively watch with appropriate diver’s watch roots. Despite the fact that we would commend a more “serious” water opposition, I don’t expect most 42mm Luminor 1950 proprietors to lower to “serious” profundities. The 44mm forms can in any case be brought down to 300m and have an unaltered water protection from 30 bar.
All new models have been ‘upgraded’ with more than just another, more slender, development, and a more slender case. The little seconds hand is currently blue, and the records, numerals and hands have been applied with beige glowing material, for a touch of ‘patina’ contact. With the white dial forms particularly it has an entire of effect as we would like to think. The more seasoned 42mm PAM00523 and the 44mm PAM00499, some way or another didn’t appeal to us, while the new refreshed 42mm PAM01523 and the 44mm PAM01499 look much better with the beige brilliant material, particularly on the wonderfully coordinating light-earthy colored calf cowhide strap.
The assortment of the refreshed Luminor Marina 1950 3 days Automatic Acciaio incorporates five distinct models, all with the new Luminor 1950 case that is diminished in stature, and with the new programmed type P.9010 development ticking inside. What they did was just adding a “1” to the reference number, and these refreshed renditions are currently the first with a four-digit reference number.
- 42mm – white dial – PAM00523 → PAM01523
- 42mm – dark dial – PAM00392 → PAM01392
- 44mm – white dial – PAM00499 → PAM01499
- 44mm – dark dial – PAM00312 → PAM01312
- 44mm – dark dial – PAM00359 → PAM01359
Panerai Luminor Marina 1950 Carbotech 3-Days Automatic PAM00661
Next up… the Panerai Luminor Marina 1950 Carbotech 3-Days Automatic. This is another Carbotech model for Panerai, and Carbotech is a material that Panerai has protected. It comprises of layers of carbon fiber squeezed along with a polymer called PEEK (Polyether Ether Ketone), bringing about a sporadic matt dark appearance that fluctuates relying upon how the material is cut. In this way every individual watch shows an alternate example and will be unique.
The mechanical properties of Carbotech are a lot higher than those of different materials utilized in the realm of watchmaking, like earthenware production and titanium: Carbotech is lighter and substantially more impervious to blows, just as being hypoallergenic and non-destructive. Panerai utilizes it for the case, the pivoting bezel and the lever connect which protects the winding crown. The watch is water-impervious to 300 meters/30 bar.
