PIONEERING INNOVATION

THE FIRST MECHANICAL WATCH CASE MADE OF BULK METALLIC GLASS

HIGH SHOCK RESISTANCE

IT'S ABOUT WHAT YOU DON'T SEE

 

LUMINOR SUBMERSIBLE 1950 BMG-TECH™

3 DAYS AUTOMATIC - 47 mm

PAM00692

 

An invisible but revolutionary innovation, resulting from Panerai's
continuous research into design and new materials: the first mechanical
watch whose case is made of BMG-TECH™

 

 

BEYOND THE FRONTIERS OF INNOVATION

HARDER AND LIGHTER THAN STEEL

BMG-TECH™ is a bulk metallic glass with a disordered atomic structure, obtained through a high-pressure injection process at a high temperature, followed by a cooling process lasting for only a few seconds, so that the atoms do not have enough time to become arranged in an ordered, regular structure.

CORROSION RESISTANT

The disordered structure of BMG-TECH™ is the secret to its great robustness and extreme resistance to corrosion, external shocks and magnetic fields, and enables it to preserve its appearance over time.

PIONEERING INNOVATION

The BMG-TECH™ is the first mechanical watch whose case, bezel, winding crown and associated protection device are made of Bulk Metallic Glass, that is a material made from a special glass-like alloy in a way which prevents crystallization, so that the atoms do not arrange themselves in regular geometric structures.
