BREAKTHROUGH: LUMINOR 1950 REGATTA 3 DAYS CHRONO FLYBACK TITANIO
What of the Luminor? Like the Radiomir, this instantly recognisable timepiece has been updated.
Inspired by the world of classic sailing, the new Luminor 1950 Regatta 3 Days Chrono Flyback Titanio chronograph has an automatic mechanical movement and three-day power reserve. A deceptively simple regatta countdown function shows off the brand’s new P.9100/ R automatic chronograph calibre, designed specifically for yacht-race starts. This is historic: It is the fi rst time an Officine Panerai watch has been created with sailing in mind. So complex is the in-house movement – with its flyback chronograph, vertical clutch and column wheel – that it has 328 components.
The open-back sapphire-crystal window exposes the movement, with its column wheel and variable inertia balance, which oscillates at 28,800 alternations an hour. In addition, the watch has a tachymeter knot scale that can calculate a yacht’s speed over a certain distance, and is also water-resistant up to 10 bar (about 100m). With a black sandwich dial, brushed titanium case and rubber strap, the Luminor 1950 Regatta 3 Days Chrono Flyback Titanio forms part of the brand’s Contemporary Collection.
