Panerai Luminor Yachts Challenge 44 mm – PAM01020

6 minutes read

A witness of time

Throughout its history, the world’s restless seas were Panerai's playground, and even today this strong connection continues. The association of Panerai with the International Circuit for Classic Sailing Yachts is a long story that has led to the creation of multiple watches, under the renowed label Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge (PCYC).

The Panerai Luminor Yacht Challenge – which pays tribute to the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge (PCYC) rivalry – points towards the brand’s long association to the world of the sea

Atelier Panerai now presents three new chronographs designed to face the most demanding challenges of the sea with style, strength and performance.

These three new watches – in titanium, matt black ceramic and gold – have the unmistakable Panerai design and impressive movements, created by the Laboratorio di Idee at the Manufacture in Neuchâtel to deliver reliability, toughness and precision to admirers of high quality sports watchmaking.

On this occasion, we proudly present exclusive version, crafted from special alloy - brushed Goldtech™.

The chronograph pushers are conveniently located on the left side of the case, while the right is dominated by the instantly recognizable crown protection device

Goldtech™ - an impressive material

This Goldtech™ metal composition is rich in copper, a material with specific red hue. The alloy also contains platinum: it keeps a nice shade of the gold and protects the entire alloy from oxidation. The compelling red-gold colour of the case is completed harmoniously by the gold accents present on the deep blue colour and a satiné sunray finish dial.

Panerai Luminor Yacht Challenge uses the P.9100 movement, which support a power reserve of approximately 72 hours

Symbolically, the letters ‘PCYC’ stands out, as a reference to the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge. The dial still retains its sandwich construction, with white Arabic numerals.

Panerai and the sea - a story of infinite passion. Panerai’s latest yachting companion promotes the transparent caseback, which bears a silhouette of a classic yacht

On this model, the right subdial indications are presented with silver-coated hands while the time is displayed by gold-coated hands.

Specific to this model, the P.9100 movement is visible through a sapphire caseback, with a transfer of the PCYC logo. P.9100 caliber is also impressive from the technical point of view.

Delivered on a blue alligator strap, Panerai Luminor Yacht Challenge is destined to be worn both at the Yacht Club and on deck.

Dark blue alligator strap with beige stitching completed the luxurious aesthetic

P.9100: the mechanical marvel

The P.9100 calibre is the first automatic movement with chronograph functions developed by atelier Panerai and it is produced entirely in the Panerai manufacture in Neuchâtel, with materials and standards of workmanship at the peak of the sector in terms of technology, quality and reliability.

Authentic red-gold shade of the Goldtech™ case is completed harmoniously by the gold accents presented on the blue dial

The automatic movement features a power reserve of 3 days or 72 hours. The oscillation frequency is 4 Hz (28,800 vibrations per hour). Caliber P.1000 contains 302 components.
