2017 Watch Trends No.1: Innovative Materials


Panerai wants to be more commercial in 2017, and released classic styles that devotees will love in a range of alternative materials.

Take, for example, the Panerai Lab-ID – Luminor 1950 Carbotech 3 Days.

Every component of the new watch demonstrates the ability of carbon to be used as a base element create materials with exceptional properties: the case, made of a composite material based on carbon fibre; the dial, covered with carbon nanotubes; and the movement that, thanks to the mechanical properties of carbon composites, works perfectly without any lubrication, according to the company.


Carbon, chrome, bronze and patented composites are all big news for 2017.
