Panerai Luminor Marina Carbotech PAM 1661 First Look

Panerai Luminor Marina Carbotech PAM 1661 First Look

Rumor had it that 2020 was going to be the year of the Luminor for Panerai, and this new Luminor Marina Carbotech ref Most of what we saw from Panerai in 2019 seemed to center around the re-shuffling of the brand's portfolio, particularly with a focus on tidying up existing lines while introducing new Due dress and Submersible tool/sport models You wouldn't be mistaken for wondering if there weren't already a Luminor Marina rendered in ultralight Carbotech - in fact, there is: It's PAM661, which is also a black 44mm Luminor case fitted with the same P9010 movement.

This new PAM1661 looks to be replacing the "Dirty dial," as it follows the tradition of Panerai updating older models by simply adding a "1" to the first digit in the reference number Panerai also seems to be ditching any potentially confusing hybrid dials and unifying the design language of its key collections - in this case, adhering to a more traditional Luminor look Panerai also appears to be streamlining the visual identifiers of the Carbotech models, which are all now delineated by their bright blue luminescent hour markers for a monochromatic look that plays well with the futuristic, high-tech aesthetic of the grained carbon fiber case.

This new Luminor Marina Carbotech is still big and expensive, but considerably more approachable on both fronts by comparison, as its 44mm case houses a much more traditional movement - Panerai's P.9010 calibre, which offers three days of power reserve and an independently adjustable hour hand, which is particularly handy for those who frequently hop between time zones. .
