Among Panerai’s sudden heap of new models today, the Panerai Luminor Marina 1950 Carbotech 3 Days Automatic PAM661 stands out for its carbon case. One good thing about Panerai and their naming conventions is that you can at least get a broad sense of a watch from its model name, especially if you are already familiar with the brand. Of course, Panerai replica watches fans know that the myriad PAM references often differ very subtly with an option here and an option there. This new release is immediately and obviously distinguished from the rest, though, by its black carbon case with a wooden grain-like pattern – oh, and there’s an updated movement and some interesting details to note as well.
Panerai cheap fake watches released their first Carbotech-cased watch last year in 2015, the Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 Carbotech 3 Days Automatic PAM616 . Now, the Submersible was a sensible choice to debut this rather novel looking material – although we never had a doubt that pieces from other collections made of this high-tech composite will be released soon.
While the aesthetic differences between the Luminor Marina and the Submersible are rather obvious (different case shape and size, lack of rotating bezel on the Marina), this new model actually shares more in common with the Submersible than just the carbon case. For starters, there’s the faux-aged lume and the round hour markers that are typically found mostly on Submersible models. Also carried over is the bright blue, but here it is only on the small-seconds hand at 9 o’clock, complementing the modern vibe established by the avant-garde use of carbon for the case.
The Panerai Luminor Marina 1950 Carbotech 3 Days Automatic replica watch case measures 44mm wide and is water-resistant to 300m, and aesthetics aside, the carbon material promises a lightweight wearing experience (to which our hands-on experience with the PAM616 testifies). Inside the Panerai Luminor Marina 1950 Carbotech 3 Days Automatic PAM661 is the “new” Panerai P.9010 automatic movement that debuted in several of today’s releases.
