BREAK­THROUGH: LU­MI­NOR 1950 RE­GATTA 3 DAYS CHRONO FLYBACK TI­TANIO

24-7 (Singapore) - - Officine Panerai -

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.
