Panerai Recycles Carbon Fiber in the Coolest Way Possible (And This Watch Proves It)

Panerai honors its seafaring heritage and pays homage to sailing syndicate Luna Rossa with its latest GMT watch, which pops with stealthy style and a natty-meets-Batman sensibility.

It marks the debut of Scafotech, a new material developed by the watchmaker that takes carbon fiber residue sourced from the hull of a Luna Rossa AC75 yacht and transforms it into the textured dial surface you see here. We're big fans of the look, especially when paired with the sandblasted titanium case and minimalistic fabric strap. And unlike too many Panerai watches, this one is far more reasonable in size at 42mm.
