Beyond the frontiers
of innovation

Innovation - PAM00692

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.

Material revolution

The BMG-TECH™ material of which the case, bezel, winding crown and associated protection device are made - is a metallic glass (Bulk Metallic Glass), that is a material made from a special glass-like alloy in a way which prevents crystallisation, so that the atoms do not arrange themselves in regular geometric structures. The alloy (consisting of zirconium, copper, aluminium, titanium and nickel) is subjected to a highpressure injection process at a high temperature and then to 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, as normally happens in crystals. The "chaotic" structure of the material is the secret of its properties - in particular, its extreme corrosion resistance, its great robustness and resistance to external shocks and its resistance to magnetic fields - bringing further advantages to the owner of a watch which also provides excellent performance while preserving its appearance virtually unchanged over time. The innovative properties of BMG-TECH™ provide additional features for a model rich in technical content and of unmistakable Panerai identity.
