LAB ID REF PAMA0700, A CARBOTECH SUBDIAL SECONDS WRISTWATCH
The yet-to-be-released Lab-ID is the apex of Panerai’s technical virtuosity. Combining traditional horology with cutting edge technology, the Lab-ID renders the classic Luminor 1950 with the power of carbon. This revolutionary material is utilized in every component: the case is made of a lightweight, ultra-durable carbon fiber composite, the dial is coated with light-absorbing carbon nanotubes for superlative legibility, and the semi-skeletonized movement is crafted from self-lubricating carbon-infused ceramic and silicon, guaranteeing flawless functionality without maintenance for up to 50 years. The so called carbotech material is a Panerai invention made from a composite based on carbon fibre. Furthermore, this material is hypoallergic and does not corrode, which ensures a pristine look of the watch for generations to come.
The inky black dial is illuminated by blue Super-LumiNova indices and hands, complemented by vivid blue stitching along the black leather strap. The in-house P.3001/C caliber is a watchmaking feat, an exceptionally elegant construction requiring only four jewels, made visible by the sapphire case-back. A much-anticipated limited edition of 50 watches will be available at retail, but this prototype is the first and only model to be available before the worldwide release — an unparalleled opportunity to acquire a ground-breaking piece of horological design.

The lot is sold in the condition it is in at the time of sale. The online condition report is provided to assist you with assessing the condition of the lot and is for guidance purposes only. The images of the lot also form part of the online condition report for the lot provided by Sotheby's. Any reference to condition in the online condition report does not amount to a full description of condition. The online condition report may make reference to particular imperfections of the lot but you should note that the lot may have other faults not expressly referred to in the online condition report of the lot or shown in the online images of the lot (for example, the online condition report may not specify mechanical replacements or imperfections to the movement, case, dial, pendulum, separate base(s) or dome). Watches in water-resistant cases have been opened to examine movements but no warranties are made that the watches are currently water-resistant. The online condition report may not refer to all faults, restoration, alteration or adaptation because Sotheby's is not a professional conservator or restorer but rather the online condition report is a statement of subjective, qualified opinion genuinely held by Sotheby's (for example, information regarding colour, clarity and weight of gemstones are statements of opinion only and not statements of fact by Sotheby's). Please also note that we do not guarantee the authenticity of any individual component parts, such as wheels, hands, crowns, crystals, screws, bracelets and wrist bands, since subsequent repairs and restoration work may have resulted in the replacement of original parts. In addition, certain images of the lot provided online may not accurately reflect the actual condition of the lot (for example, the online images may represent colours and shades which are different to the lot's actual colour and shades). For these reasons, the online condition report is not an alternative to taking your own professional advice regarding the condition of the lot. Prospective buyers should also refer to the Buying at Auction guide which includes important notices concerning the type of property in this sale. In particular, please note it is the purchaser's responsibility to comply with any applicable import and export matters, particularly in relation to lots incorporating materials from endangered species. Please be advised that wristbands made of materials derived from endangered or otherwise protected species (i.e. alligator and crocodile) are not sold with the watches and are for display purposes only. We reserve the right to remove these bands prior to shipping.
