The new Luminor 1950 PCYC 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic reveal its association with the world of classic yachting through a masterly combination of technology, design and fascinating little details, such as the engraving of an elegant classic yacht on the back, beneath the inscription PANERAI CLASSIC YACHTS CHALLENGE. But the powerful sporting identity is primarily demonstrated by the chronograph flyback function of the Manufacture P.9100 automatic calibre: the push-piece at 8 o’clock instantly zeroes the chronograph hands and immediately restarts them, without it first being necessary to stop them and return them to zero by pressing on the stop and reset button at 10 o’clock.

The dial of PAM00653 has a black dial with beige figures and an untreated brown leather strap, with the same contrasting sewing.

To make reading the dial and its relative functions as clear and as simple as possible, the chronograph minute and seconds hands are of different colours and positioned centrally, while the hour counter is at 3 o’clock and the small seconds dial is at 9 o’clock, its hand being the same colour as the central chronograph seconds hand. Another element which expresses the link with the sea, while at the same time performing a useful additional function, is the tachymeter scale in knots printed on the flange, which enables the average speed of the yacht over a particular distance (one nautical mile) to be measured by the chronograph minute hand.

The case of the new Luminor 1950 PCYC 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic is 44 mm in diameter and it is made of AISI 316L stainless steel, an alloy which is extremely resistant to corrosion. Made of the same material as the case but with a contrasting brushed finish, the characteristic bridge device with lever locking the winding crown helps to ensure the water-resistance of the watch to 10 bar (a depth of about 100 metres).

The new Luminor Ceramica doesn’t venture far from that source. The case comes in at 44 mm, which, though ample, is amazingly light. This is as it’s made out of a synthetic ceramic according to zirconium oxide. This substance is five times tougher than steel, and is significantly lighter. It’s also quite resistant to scratches, corrosive agents and high temperatures — a logical jump, provided that zirconium oxide needs to be fired at temperatures as high as 1500° C in order to synthesize into its ceramic kind. The instance is then bead-blasted to attain a matte finish.

The dial of the special PCYC timepiece is provided with either a black dial with beige Arabic hour numerals (Ref. PAM00654, below). The black-dial model is derived from an untreated brown leather strap with beige stitching; the beige stitching, which echoes the colour of the hour markers, also appears on the brown leather strap of this ivory-dialed version. The pusher in 10 o’clock starts, stops, and also resets the chronograph, while the one at 8 o’clock immediately zeroes and re-starts the chronograph hands without the need to stop and restart with the other pusher. The dial was designed for legibility of the watch’s various readouts, with the central chronograph minutes palms in different colors, the chronograph hours recorded on the subdial at 3 o’clock along with also the running seconds displayed on the subdial at 9 o’clock. Both watches’ dials have luminous treatment on the hands and hour markers and a tachymeter scale in knots (nautical miles) along the flange, which may be employed with the chronograph to figure out the average speed of a yacht within a specific distance. Both the PAM00653 and PAM00654 models are priced at $12,300.
