Lab-ID Luminor 1950 Carbotech 3 Days operates without traditional liquid lubrication which are normally a must on the inside of the watch,Instead Panerai have used different materials and coatings based on carbon which help in maintaining the friction between the components of the movement.
The LAB-ID is powered by a very special version of the P.3001 movement, the P.3001/C where C stands for carbon. The bridges and the plate of this semi skeletonized movement are made from a low friction composite with Tantalum-based ceramic, minimizing pivot friction.The P.3001/C has only four jewels and no external lubrication is needed.
The massive 49mm case is made of Panerai’s trademark “CARBOTECH”, a composite material obtained from very thin sheets of carbon fibre compressed together with a special polymer at a controlled temperature.
