PAM00616 launched by Panerai PANERAI can be said to be one of the most topical case materials in ’15 years. Its Carbontech technology uses the technology of stacking different materials and forming them to make them cut Each of the case has a unique texture, from the current special materials gradually into a paranoid pursuit of superior physical properties to open up a new direction.
Feature one: Different texture from ordinary carbon fiber
The specific method of Carbontech is to alternately laminate carbon fiber flakes and so-called PEEK (Polyether Ether Ketone, polyether ether ketone), compress them into a single material at a constant temperature and high pressure, and then cut and shape them by CNC. Because the materials are stacked with different materials, the finished product will be layered with different colors, and the texture of each piece is unique. In addition, in order to make the layered layer richer, it is cut from 15 The knife is cut at an angle, so that the finished surface can show more layers.
Carbontech is formed obliquely after being laminated and pressed. From the side, it is almost a simple parallel pattern, but it starts with an arc from the front and changes a lot. Although it is a special material, it can also be complicated to form. The serrations on the side of the bezel are very fine.
Feature 2: Panerai has a wave
PEEK is not a new material. The compound was developed by the United Kingdom as early as 1978. Later, manufacturers in the United States, Germany, and Japan have also developed similar technologies, but they are laminated with carbon fiber. It is indeed the first time that the shell has been made in the watch industry. In addition to its strong selling points in appearance, Carbontech’s physical properties are still very good. In addition to the specific gravity of less than 1/3 of titanium, low sensitization and corrosion resistance are also quite practical, and they also have the advantages of carbon materials. Resistant to temperature differences and UV rays, which makes it difficult to change color over time.
Strictly speaking, this method of laminating and cutting out unique textures is not the first. Panerai is not the first. In the past, Damascus steel used by occasional brands is an example. In addition, in recent years, there have been similar results in the use of various carbon materials. It just failed to cause a huge response like 616. It can only be said that Panerai is watching and watching. If they do similar things, they will have different results.
This batch of new Submersible is equipped with a blue OP Logo in the center of the tape, which looks pretty good. Because the buckle is just a general pin buckle, the base of the strap has a bellows, allowing for small expansion and contraction.
Feature three: Word-of-mouth movement as backing
In addition to the case material, 616 is roughly the standard Submersible. In 2015, Panerai launched a number of new Submersibles. In this batch of tapes, a new design was added, which is to change the OP Logo to Panerai. The standard blue inlaid on the belt, exquisite workmanship, OP Logo is a favorite icon of many watch fans, can be considered a pleasing detail. The watch is equipped with a P. 9000 movement; in May 2015, Panerai just announced the new generation of the P. 9010, but the main improvement point of the new movement is thinner, this pair of 616 has 47×16.8mm In fact, it doesn’t make much sense for the big guy, and the P. 9000 can be regarded as a battle-hardened machine. The performance should have been optimized to a stable peak. From this perspective, it has its advantages.
The case back is not made of a transparent bottom cover, but it may be due to strength considerations. The solid bottom cover is not Carbontech but black-plated titanium. The bottom cover is screw-in, water-resistant to 300 meters, and in addition to the words Florence 1860, etc., it is also engraved with a slow torpedo pattern.

The number of only one surviving in the world has achieved its rare value. The watch is based on a painting by Hermès designer Henri d’ Origny in his early years. The enamelist uses micro-painting enamel technology to condense the picture on the dial of more than 40 millimeters. The colors are full and full, and the image is lifelike. The horse is robust and white, and the knight is elegant and dignified, with delicate strokes. The pleats of the blouse are distinct, and from every detail, the good skills of the enameler are revealed. At the same time, the enamelist also used the process of metal foil inlay (Paillonné), which burns and embeds small gold particles in different enamel layers.

The watch and clock exhibition area of the Yaolai Luxury Expo from September 6th to 9th brought a series of independent watch brands to mainland watchmakers. Among them, the most popular is undoubtedly Parmigiani’s Exhibition stand. This Swiss brand, which entered China last year, has won a group of loyal fans with its superb craftsmanship.

Shanwei Wei, Brand Director of Parmigiani China, and Hexun Editor
Shan Weixiang, the brand director of Parmigiani China, introduced Hexun Luxury.

To enter the international market. But Parmigiani’s watch repair technology has long been famous. Some famous museums, such as the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris, and the famous watch brand Vacheron Constantin, have given their masterpieces to Mr. Parmigiani, the founder of Parmigioni, for restoration.
Another characteristic of Parmigiani is production independence. Except for the leather strap, all the accessories of the current watch are made by the brand itself. Of course, this is the only outsourced leather strap that has a lot to offer, all made by Hermès and printed with its logo. In addition, Parmigiani supplies watch parts to several brands.
Speaking of Parmigiani’s customer base, Shanwei introduced that this is a group of people who are more interested in watches and love to collect. Compared with old Swiss watches such as Vacheron Constantin, Parmigiani’s customer base is younger and more diverse.
