Designer Copy Panerai LAB-ID PAM700 – Pure Concentrate of Technology

A common cliché is to let engineering and innovation in the hands of Germans / Swiss and design to Italians. Justified or not, you probably heard that dozens of times. Yet, for once, we’ll let Italians their chance to show their skills in terms of innovation… And to be honest, they might have something here. Indeed, the new Panerai LAB-ID PAM700, presented at the SIHH 2017, is simply a concentrate of Panerai’s technology. 50 years warranty, self-lubricated parts, almost no jewels in the movement, carbon everywhere. See, Italians can also jump into technology.

OK, this intro was kind of ironic, because, it has to be said, Panerai aaa replica watches uk are mostly developed and manufactured in Neuchâtel, Switzerland. Yet, this doesn’t remove anything to the interest behind this watch, a piece that sums up everything the Florentine brand can do best in terms of technology and movement design. Clearly, the teams of Panerai are both proud and extremely confident in this new concept. Listen to that: they advertise this watch as guaranteed for 50 years. This is 10 times more than the best deals you can usually find in the industry. Or the concept is really perfectly achieved and reliable, or they will have a few after-sales issues. That is a question we just can’t answer now. Time will tell, and we wish time will make Panerai right.

As said, the Panerai LAB-ID is a summary of all the research and development done by the brand, merged in a single watch. Case construction, materials, use of space-like technologies, redefinition of the concept of frictions and lubrication, reduction of the numbers of jewels to what is usually found in a quartz watch, innovating coatings everywhere… On paper, this PAM700 could simply kill the idea of servicing a watch. Sounds promising. The main reason why a watch has to be serviced is because a traditional movement relies on lubricants placed on frictions points. Yes, there are frictions in a watch and because oils and greases will age, they need to be replaced otherwise you create wear on moving parts and axles of bridges and plates. Basically, Panerai gets rid of the maintenance by avoiding the need of lubricants. Yes, nice, highly interesting, but how?

To avoid the need of lubricants, Panerai introduces on the LAB-ID PAM700 some new bridges and plates manufactured in a low friction composite which integrates a Tantalum based ceramic. This new generation of composite is notable for its high percentage of carbon which minimises pivot friction. If this means that no additional lubricants are required, it doesn’t mean that lubrication is not needed anymore. However, this is done directly by the material of the bridges and its inherent properties, not by an additional substance that will need to be change. And that also mean that jewels, which are used on friction points, are not required anymore either. This is why this Replica Panerai LAB-ID PAM700 only has 4 jewels – and 2 of them, on each side of the balance pivot, are coated with DLC, avoiding the need to lubricate the Incabloc anti-shock device.

Then, there’s the escapement, the most crucial part of a watch, as the one making the most efforts (here oscillating 3 times per seconds). No lubricants here either. The escape wheel is silicon, coated with DLC, and all the other parts of the regulating organ are also manufacture in silicon (which means antimagnetic properties on top of that). Finally, the two spring barrels have a multi-layer coating, the uppermost one being DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon), and thus being dry lubricated. All of that create a watch that, on paper, won’t require to be opened as no oils will need to be changed. The base movement yet is know, as it is the 3-day power reserve, manually-wound P.3001. Being a non-traditional movement, don’t expect manual finishing on the bridges and plate, yet the wheels and moving parts are traditionally decorated.

Then, for its Panerai LAB-ID PAM700, the brand also applied technologies on the case and the dial. The 49mm case is manufactured from carbon fiber, with CARBOTECH technology – a composite material obtained from very thin sheets of carbon fibre compressed together with a special polymer at a controlled temperature. This technique makes each case different from all others, with unique patterns. Carbotech is lightweight, hypo-allergenic and not subject to corrosion. If this watch remains a large piece on the wrist (you can’t avoid the 49mm), it wears incredibly light and comfortable.

Last innovations concern the dial. In order to obtain a pitch black color, avoiding reflections and maximizing contrast, Panerai has created a dial that is coated with carbon nanotubes. The result is indeed a insanely black dial, with a velvety finish, which reflects almost no light. Contrast with the blue luminescent hands and indexes (with the usual sandwich dial construction) is perfect. One thing that might be good to invest research in would be the antireflective coating on the crystal, as the light reflections on it actually ruin a bit the effect of that pitch black dial. On top of that, usability at night time is impressive, with a luminous light that is both bright and long-lasting.

Overall, the Panerai LAB-ID PAM700 is an impressive laboratory watch, which could easily prefigure the future of watches and movement durability. If these technologies prove to be not only true on paper but in the reality of a daily use and if the panerai replica watches really prove to be reliable over the years, these innovations could well be seen later, in more conventionally produced watches. The Panerai LAB-ID PAM700 will come with a 50 year warranty, at a price of 50,000 Euro and in 50 pieces only.

A Close-up Look At The Fake Panerai Pam700 Lab-id Luminor 1950 Carbotech – Possibly The Most High-tech Panerai Yet

We here at luxurypanerai have long respected and been friends with Panerai Central – experts on all-things Panerai. Therefore, with the introduction of the brand’s newest LAB-ID Luminor 1950 Carbotech watch, it only made sense to go to the experts for a close-up look at what really sets this watch apart.

It wasn’t too long ago that Panerai introduced its first  Carbotech material (2015) that  was used for the first time in the Panerai PAM616 Submersible. Carbotech is a composite material based on carbon fiber rarely used in the world of watchmaking.  Carbotech has an uneven, matt black appearance, that varies according to the cutting of the material, resulting in a unique finish per case. The structure of Carbotech is designed to enhance both the aesthetics and performance of the case; the material is also used for the rotating bezel, and the lever bridge that protects the winding crown. To form the material, thin sheets of carbon fiber are compressed, together with a high-end polymer polyether ether ketone (PEEK), at a controlled temperature under high pressure to bind it and make it stronger and more durable.

This year, the brand used this  Carbotech material – along with some super features and surprises –  in the Panerai PAM700 LAB-ID Luminor 1950 Carbotech. LAB-ID stands for Laboratorio di Idee, the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchatel, Switzerland.

Easily one of the most extraordinary parts of the watch is the dial. The panerai luminor replica LAB-ID dial utilizes carbon nanotubes to achieve a deep black dial. The top of the dial has been coated with these nanotubes that are specially developed to absorb light, reducing reflections to a minimum, and giving it an almost black-hole effect. This top layer of the dial covers the Super-LumiNova of the sandwich-style dial that Panerai invented. The Super-LumiNova in the watch is electric blue – marking the first time we have seen this color used for a Panerai Lume. With the combination of the deep black dial and bold bright blue, when illuminated, the PAM700 almost looks like an LED display.

Because the dial is coated with the carbon nanotubes, the brand was unable to put the words, Officine Panerai and LAB-ID, directly on the actual dia, so the text is actually formed on the sapphire crystal, which is finished with a double anti-reflective coating.

Lovingly referred to at SIHH as the 50-50-50 watch, the PAM 700 Lab ID is being made in a limited edition of   50 units each retailing for 50,000 Euro, and being sold with an unheard-of 50-year warranty. Yes, you heard that right, a 50-year warrant – thanks to a number of  amazing advancements Panerai utilizes in the LAB-ID’s movement.

The Panerai PAM700 LAB-ID utilizes a P.3001/C hand wound in-house movement and features a 3-day power reserve. This is the first time that this particular movement has been presented with a semi-skelotonized design. Add to this beautiful design the fact that no additional lubrication is used and only 4 total jewels are housed in this movement and you have a breakthrough of epic proportions.

The major advancements that allow the swiss copy Panerai PAM700 to have a liquid-lubrication-free movement – allowing it to not need a major service or overhaul of the movement  – and guaranteeing the piece for 50 years:

The components are made of a completely new material that is a Tantalum-based ceramic. This new composite has a very high carbon percentage that minimizes the pivot friction, making lubrication of the main plate and bridges unnecessary.
The P.3001/C movement’s main escapement components are made from silicon and applied with a DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) coating to the wheel work to eliminate the need for lubricating the escapement.
The two barrel springs of the P.3001 Caliber are coated with a material that took two years of testing by the Laboratorio di Idee in the Neuchatel factory. The coating – based on carbon – eliminates the need for conventional lubrication.
A surface coating of DLC on the 4 jewels means that there no longer is a need for additional lubrication on the Incabloc anti-shock device.

This technologically advanced P.3001/C movement, with skeletonized bridges and barrels,  can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back, which presents a view into the power reserve indicator.  The Replica Panerai PAM 700 Lab ID is a  49mm case water resistance up to 100 meters. It should be noted that while the watch has a 50-year warranty, Panerai experts recommend it be “looked at” every six years so they can check the movement and replace gaskets to ensure the integrity of the water resistance.
