Panerai Luminor Marina 1950 Carbotech 3 Days Automatic PAM 661 Watch

Panerai introduced the first carbotech-cased watch in 2015, which is the Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 Carbotech 3 Days Automatic (PAM 616). The Carbotech composite is made up of carbon fiber that are pressed together in a controlled temperature with Polyether Ether Ketone (PEEK) binding the materials together and making it stronger. It has never been used in watchmaking before. It is so impressive that Panerai integrates high-tech composite into the watch to make it one of a kind.

Last year, Panerai presented the Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days Automatic (PAM 661)—the first Luminor Marina made up of Carbotech composite material. With the 44mm matte black case, it has luminous ecru hour dots and Arabic numbers at 3, 6, 9, 12 o’clock positions on a black dial, to go with the Ponte Vecchio brown leather strap. At 9 o’clock position, there is a small second hand dial with a distinct bright blue hand. Since the case is made by a composite material based on carbon fiber, the weight of the watch is much lighter than other models. Inside PAM 661 is the Panerai P9010 automatic movement that is entirely developed and created in the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel. It offers a thinner design, a balanced bridge secured on two sides, and maintains three-day power reserve. Father's Day is around the corner. PAM 661 is an absolutely light and stylish gift for Dad.
