  • Catalogue Essay

    - Launched in SIHH 2015, the PAM616 debuted in a new and innovative material Carbotech. Presented as part of the Luminor Submersible collection in a distinguished black carbon fibre case, the material is essentially laters of carbon fibre compressed by high pressure with a polymer called polyether ether ketone (PEEK) into a large block.

    - Ultra-light in weight and extra durable, the Carbotech’s natural marble-like pattern is not only corrosion-resistant, essentially each watch crafted with the material has a slightly different pattern that makes each unique. Produced in a limited edition of 500 pieces only, the present example is numbered 9 from the collection.

    - Sized at 47mm diameter paired with a dial that has a pop of blue that highlights the small seconds to give the overall watch a touch of freshness.

    - Housed under the titanium caseback is the self-winding P.9000 claibre that beats at 4 HZ and provides a power reserve of 72 hours thanks to the twin barrels. Boasting with masculinity, the black carbon fibre case has a fine sandblasted finish, giving it a matte discrete appearance, it also paired with the choice of two rubber strap for water action.

  • Artist Biography


    Italian • 1860

    Known for its robust designs and large case sizes, Officine Panerai was established in 1860 by Giovanni Panerai in Florence, Italy. Around 1900, Giovanni's grandson Guido Panerai took over, and Panerai became the supplier to the Regia Marina — the Royal Italian Navy. After supplying the navy with high-precision instruments for a number of years, Officine Panerai created Radiomir, a radium-based powder that gives luminosity to the dials of sighting instruments and devices. By 1936, the Royal Italian Navy approached Panerai again with the request to design a watch resistant to extreme underwater conditions. The watch they created became known as the "Radiomir".

    Panerai's watches made during the early twentieth century era were comprised of cases designed and manufactured by Rolex SA, with Cortébert, a Swiss manufacturer, supplying the majority of their movements. The most recognizable designs from the firm are the Radiomir and Luminor. To date, vintage models from the first half of the 1900s, such as the reference 3646 and 6152 models, remain the most desirable among collectors.
