Panerai is putting its fancy Carbotech material to work in two new watches. Carbotech is a special composite developed by Panerai that is lighter than titanium and stronger than stainless steel. This makes it an excellent material for Panerai large replica watches.
The PAM 979 is the regular production version, while the PAM 961 is the limited edition version. The differences are subtle. The Panerai Submersible Marina Militare Carbotech PAM 979 Copy Watch has white markers and a black rubber strap, while the PAM 961 has green accents and a green rubber strap.
These two new Submersible Marina Militaire Carbotech 47mm watches are clearly based on the Luminor Submersible 1950 Carbotech from four years ago. The basic ingredients are the same: Panerai Replica 47mm wide Carbotech case, 300 meters water resistance, small seconds at 9 o’clock, large markers, and self-winding movement.
The dials of these new Submersibles are carbon. Also, gone is the faux vintage lume seen in the earlier model and in its place is solid color lume. These two changes have a profound effect on the way the watch looks and feels.
Panerai redesigned the handset and running seconds counter at 9:00, then stripped away the primary text on the dial, leaving only the deep, luminous cutouts to stand in stark relief. The Panerai Submersible Replica Watches China wordmark and depth rating have been printed on the underside of the crystal, which, love it or hate it, is a pretty neat detail when viewed at an angle.
The diving scale on the Submersible bezel is also fully engraved now with brushed surfaces and blasted texture within, hearkening the earliest watch Panerai created for Horn: the Panerai Replica Watches PAM186 Luminor Submersible Arktos GMT, with its raised compass relief.
Despite its broad 47mm dimensions, PAM961 felt the most wearable of the three, thanks in part to its super-matte aesthetic and feathery-light presence on the wrist. It deploys the new Submersible handset found on the Mike Horn, but utilizes a brand new luminous applicant for Panerai Copy Watches: three-dimensional Super-LumiNova blocks, cut into the circular and hyphen-shaped hour markers that characterize a Submersible dial.
But physically speaking, the new reference utilizes the same 47mm titanium Panerai Replica Submersible case, the same ceramic rotating bezel, and the same P.9100 flyback chronograph movement with the same dial layout.This version gets a matte black DLC coating, a textured blue degradé dial, and seafoam green colored accents and hands — a color scheme said to be inspired by the ocean around French Polynesia, where Néry now calls home much of the year.
