Carbotech is extremely light and more resistant to corrosion, as well as hypoallergenic compared to conventional materials.

Aesthetically, this avant-garde material has an uneven, matte-black appearance with an almost wood-grain-like texture that varies according to the material cutting. This means, in essence, that each surface made of this material is absolutely unique.

To form the plates that give the distinctive look, thin sheets of carbon fibers are compressed at a controlled temperature under high pressure together with a high-end polymer, PEEK, which binds the composite material, making it even stronger and more durable.

The unidirectional rotating bezel enables the immersion time to be calculated with confidence, while legibility in the dark is ensured by Super-LumiNova® coating applied to the markers and the large skeleton hands.

The rubber strap fitted to the watch is perfect for diving, as well as in every other challenging situation.

Super-LumiNova enables the timepiece to glow brightly in the dark. A luminous double index marks the 12 o’clock position on the carbon dial

Caliber P.9010

Behind the solid caseback, made of black-coated titanium, Panerai’s Caliber P.9010 works flawlessly. The automatic P.9010 calibre, entirely developed and created in the manufacture in Neuchâtel, has central hour and minute hands, the small seconds dial at 9 o’clock and the date at 3 o’clock.

Comprised of 200 components including 31 jewels, the calibre is only 6 mm thick. The movement is self-winding using a bidirectional rotor, and offers a power reserve of 72 hours, or three days.
