Panerai introduced a new Submersible with a case made of carbotech, a composite based on carbon fiber. The design and utility are inspired by the original Luminor 1950 developed by Panerai in the 1950s. Those were famously used by commandos of the Italian Navy.
The Submersible 1950 Carbotech features a matte black 47 mm case made of a composite for which it is named. Carbotech is lighter and less corrosive than titanium or ceramic.
The black dial is the perfect backdrop to applied hour markers. The lume applied to the markers and hands as well as the copy at 12 and 6 o’clock are pre-aged in color. A colorful additional appears in the form of a blue running seconds hand.
Inside is the Panerai built P.9000 caliber, an automatic winding mechanical movement featuring a three-day power reserve.
