In Depth

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 PAM00654 is ivory with beige markers and blue details and it is supplied with a strap in brown leather with beige 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).

Maintenance

Panerai watches are produced to very high standards of quality. It is worth remembering that the mechanical parts run 24 hours a day when used, so the watch must undergo regular maintenance to ensure long life and good operation.

WATER-RESISTANCE 

Have watch checked periodically for water-resistance by an Authorized Panerai Service Centre and renovate it every two years with regular servicing, or whenever the watch has to be opened. The restoration of water-resistance necessarily involves replacing the seals in order to ensure the maximum water resistance and protection. Where the watch is used in underwater sports activities, it is recommended that it should be checked every year before the underwater activities begin.  

THE MOVEMENT 

Have the movement of watch checked periodically by an Authorized Panerai Service Centre in order to preserve its perfect operation. If the watch has a tendency to gain or lose time to a significant degree, the movement may need to be overhauled. The movements are designed to withstand temperature variations between -10°C and +60°C (14°F and 140°F). Outside this range of temperatures, operational variations exceeding those set out in the specifications of the movement may be noticed. In addition, there is a risk that the lubricants contained in the movement may deteriorate, resulting in damage to some of its parts.  

CLEANING THE EXTERIOR

To keep the exterior in perfect condition, we recommend washing Panerai watch with soap and warm water, using a soft brush. After this operation, and also after immersion in the sea or a swimming pool, carefully rinse the watch with fresh water. All Panerai watches can be cleaned with a soft, dry cloth. 

THE STRAP

 Panerai straps must be washed in warm water and left to dry. It is important not to dry them on a hot surface or expose them to direct sunlight, because the rapid evaporation of the water could damage their shape and quality. After each immersion in the sea or a swimming pool, carefully rinse the strap with fresh water. It is recommended that the strap and the buckle should be replaced by an Authorized Distributor or a Panerai Service Centre, in order to avoid any problems caused by incorrect replacement. Only an Authorized Distributor or Panerai Service Centre can guarantee the use of genuine Panerai straps, properly designed to fit the dimensions of the case and manufactured according to the quality standards of the brand. All alligator leather used by Officine Panerai comes from farms in Louisiana, USA. Officine Panerai’s suppliers have committed to the highest standard of responsibility and have given their assurance that such farms in Louisiana contribute to the stable growth of wild alligators, thus protecting this endangered species. Panerai does not use leather coming from endangered species taken from the wild.
