A less ob­vi­ous

Revolution (Hong Kong) - - SIHH 2017 -

(and oner­ous) tech­ni­cal in­no­va­tion comes in the form of the Lu­mi­nor 1950 Sub­mersible BMG-Tech 3-Days Au­to­matic. Give it a pass­ing glance, and you’ll think that Panerai has just given the ex­ist­ing 1950 Sub­mersible a quick up­date with a blue dial. How­ever, you’d be miss­ing the fact that the case is ac­tu­ally made of bulk metal­lic glass, or BMG-Tech. The al­most in­dus­trial sound­ing ma­te­rial is an al­loy of zir­co­nium, cop­per, alu­minum, ti­ta­nium and nickel, which is cre­ated in a heat­ing and cool­ing process that makes the atoms stay in a chaotic struc­ture. This gives it a par­tic­u­larly high ma­te­rial re­sis­tance against cor­ro­sion, shocks, scratches, and even mag­netic fields. Those who ab­hor such signs of wear and tear will ab­so­lutely be drawn to this high-tech piece.
