Three new LuminorYachtsChallenge special edition chronographs, derived from the legendary connection between Panerai and Sea World. The connection began more than a century ago, when the company first provided precision timing equipment to the Italian Navy. Inspired by the unique aesthetics of classic sailing boats, the three new chronographs are exquisitely crafted and present a strong athletic style.

   Officine Panerai pays tribute to the brand’s deep relationship with the sea world and its own history with the new LuminorYachtsChallenge Special Edition Chronograph. In recent years, Panerai has made outstanding contributions to the protection of classic sailing culture through the Panerai Classic Sailing Challenge. The ‘PCYC’ inscription on the dial and the sailing pattern on the case back clearly indicate this. In the titanium and ceramic versions, the pattern is carved; in the red and gold version, the pattern appears to float above the movement, reproduced on the sapphire crystal.

   All three LuminorYachtsChallenge Special Edition chronographs feature the same iconic case design, winding crown bridge protection, and the functions and features of the P.9100 automatic movement. This is a flyback chronograph movement with 3-day power reserve, zero seconds reset, speedometer, and fast-adjusting hour functions. The new watch also has the same dial, two sub-dials (small seconds at 9 o’clock and chronograph at 3 o’clock) and a sandwich structure, so they are clearly visible even in dark environments.

   The color matching of the three chronograph dials and straps varies according to the material of the case, but the dials are in the ocean’s azure tone, and multiple details give each watch a strong and unique personality. The three models of the case are made of different materials-PAM00764 titanium, PAM00788 zirconia ceramic, PAM01020 5NPT gold-meaning that customers can choose more sporty, more technical appearance, or more precious classic. All three watches are technically very superior. They are designed to be robust and resistant to external factors. In terms of water resistance, the titanium and ceramic versions are 100 meters and the red and gold versions are 50 meters. (Photo / text watch home Xu Chaoyang)
