Panerai Luminor Marina Carbon tech Blue Alligator Straps PAM 1664 Limited Edition Watch


Panerai Luminor Marina Carbon tech Blue Alligator Straps PAM 1664 Limited Edition Watch.
Just released by Panerai is the new Luminor Marina Carbon tech Blu Notte PAM 1664, a 500-piece limited edition exclusively for the brand’s e-commerce store. The resilient yet super lightweight watch is done in a 44 mm Carbon tech case, which is the carbon fiber composite that Panerai has used for the past few years. This is the first time Panerai has matched a Carbon tech case with a blue dial, and the result is a handsome and well-proportioned watch that I’d absolutely wear on a regular basis.
Carbon tech is a carbon fiber composite used by Panerai for about six years now, favored for its lightweight durability and almost Damascus steel-like pattern created by the material’s layering process. The process of creating Carbon tech involves layering sheets of carbon fiber that are held together with a polymer resin and then heated and pressurized.

The PAM 1664 case measures 44 mm-wide, about 13.5 mm-thick, and has a lug-to-lug of 54 mm. While it’s certainly on the larger side of what I usually wear, the light weight of the Carbon tech goes a long way in improving comfort and wear ability.
Beneath the titanium case back is the automatic P.9010 movement, a staple of the Panerai lineup since 2016. Composed of 200 parts and 31 jewels, the P.9010 operates at 28,800 v p h and features two barrels that help achieve the 72-hour power reserve. One downside to this movement (as of an update sometime in 2020) is that there isn’t a hacking seconds function. There is, however, an independent hour hand that can be adjusted forward and backward and is also used to set the date.
The satin-finished blue dial does lend some dressiness to the PAM 1664, a vibe that is punctuated with the matching Blu Notte alligator leather strap as opposed to a sportier fabric strap. (Note that the pin buckle on the strap is actually done in titanium with D L C, not Carbon tech.) Still, the 300 m of water resistance ensures that this is a true dive watch
