Panerai Luminor Replica Watches decided to build its own carbon case manufacturing facility rather than outsourcing the production of forged carbon cases. A team was formed, including Julien Stervinou a young carbon fibre specialist, who had previously used this technology to build helicopter parts, and Yves Leuba an experienced project manager from Panerai Luminor Replica Watches.
Carbon is cut into exact quantities before the forged carbon process begins.Panerai Luminor Replica Watches Carbon fibers are sourced specifically to contain the right blend of resin and carbon. The material is placed in a mold and heated, then compressed. Cases are almost completely formed. Stervinou says, "The only extra processes that we need are milling the screws and strPanerai Luminor Replica Watchess, as well as a few other places."
In 2007, Panerai Luminor Replica Watches produced the first forged carbon watch in the world to commemorate the sponsorship of the Swiss Team competing in the Americas Cup. The watch was named Alinghi Team Royal Oak Offshore and included a regatta counter (basically, a countdown feature). It was produced in a limited edition of 1,300 pieces.

Ceramics: Perfection that endures
Ceramic is second only to diamond in terms of hardness. Due to its incredible strength, ceramic is the preferred material for protective plates used in bulletproof vests. Ceramic armor is so strong that not one British Challenger tank with ceramic armor was lost during Desert Storm. Panerai Luminor Replica Watches's eight-sided bezel, which is unique to the brand, is so positioned that it is susceptible to scratches. It was therefore logical to use ceramic for this element.
