The bond between Panerai and the sea began more than a century ago, when the brand first supplied precision instruments to the Italian Navy. Today, it takes the shape of three new chronographs in the Luminor Yachts Challenge collection.

Panerai presents three new chronographs designed to face the challenges of the sea with style, strength and fortitude. These three new watches – in titanium, matt black ceramic and gold – have the unmistakable Panerai design and mechanical movements, created by the Laboratorio di Idee at the Manufacture in Neuâtel to deliver reliability, thoughness and precision to admirers of high quality sports watchmaking.

The new Luminor Yachts Challenge watches are a tribute to the long association of the wolrd 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 yacht, 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 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 feature of the P.9100 automatic manufacture movement – flyback chronograph with a power reserve of three days, second 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 9 o’clock and chronograph hours at 3 o’clock) and sandwich construction, so they are perfectly visible even in the dark.
