The Luminor 1950 case, crown and beam in Panerai Composite® are all made of synthetic ceramics. This kind of synthetic ceramics, which is only used in Officine Panerai’s high-end timepieces, is not synthetic in general Ceramics, synthetic ceramics used in Panerai Composite® are far lighter than ordinary ceramic materials. First, an electrochemical transformation is needed, which involves changes in aluminum. The synthetic ceramics made in this way are more resistant to corrosion than steel materials. It also has a very unique appearance.
The large earthy brown dial is composed of a sandwich sandwich structure. Two identical dials sandwich the middle layer coated with the powerful luminous Super-LumiNova®, displaying transparent fluorescent numbers and hour scales. This is the classic design style of the Panerai series. Its thickness design is very humane, which can display the time in the dark with high definition. The dial uses sapphire crystal for protection and anti-reflective treatment.
