Panerai has had a fruitful relationship with sport yachting for a long time now, and to celebrate the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge (PCYC), the Italian Swiss watch brand has issued three new timepieces.
First up is the Panerai Luminor 1950 PCYC Regatta 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Titanio, the PAM 652. This beauty measures in at 47mm and, as its name indicates, boasts a titanium case in the classic Luminor 1950 style. At its heart is a chronograph-style movement that powers the seconds, minutes, and hours hands.
The PAM 652 Luminor 1950 PCYC Regatta 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Titanio is priced at $17,200.
Next are the Luminor 1950 PCYC 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Acciaio PAM 653 and PAM 654 designs. Both timepieces are 3mm smaller than the Regatta, and measure at 44mm in the same Luminor case style; they’re in steel, though, instead of titanium. Both are powered by the in-house P.9100 self-winding movement.
Where the PAM 653 and PAM 654 differ is the dials: the 653’s is the iconic Panerai style, a deep black with gold Arabic numerals. The 654, on the other hand, boasts an ivory-colored dial and luminous dots to mark the hours.
Both of the Luminor 1950 PCYC 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Acciaio examples are priced at $12,300.
