Panerai - Luminor Yachts Challenge

Panerai Luminor Yachts Challenge

The three new chronographs with a strong sports character are inspired by the beauty of classic yachts.

The new Luminor Yachts Challenge watches are designed to face the most demanding challenges of the sea with style, strength and fortitude. They come in a 44mm case in titanium (PAM00764), matt black ceramic (PAM00788) (both watches are fitted with a rubber strap) and gold (PAM01020), with an alligator strap. They have the unmistakable Panerai design and impressive mechanical movements, created by the Laboratorio di Idee at the Manufacture in Neuchâtel to deliver reliability, toughness and precision.

The new Luminor Yachts Challenge watches are a tribute to the long association of the world of the sea and Panerai which, as a tribute to its own past, has in recent years made a remarkable contribution to preserving the culture of classic yachts, through the races of the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge.

This tribute is made clear by the letters “PCYC” inscribed on the dial and the outline of a sailing yacht on the back. In the case of the titanium and ceramic models this image is engraved, while in the gold chronograph it seems almost to float above the movement, being reproduced on the sapphire glass porthole in the back of the watch.

All three Luminor Yachts Challenge watches have the same iconic case design with the device protecting the winding crown, and the functions and features of the P.9100 automatic manufacture movement – flyback chronograph with a power reserve of three days, seconds reset, speed calculator expressed in knots through the tachymeter scale on the flange, and rapid hour adjustment. They also have the same dial with two sub-dials (small seconds at nine o’clock and chronograph hours at 3 o’clock) and sandwich construction, so they are perfectly visible even in the dark.

All of them are designed to be solid and tough as well as resistant to external agents and to corrosion. Their water-resistance is guaranteed to a depth of 100 metres (10 bar) for the ceramic and the titanium models, and to 50 metres (5 bar) for the model in gold.
