PCYC CHRONOGRAPHS. PANERAI AND THE SEA. A STORY OF INFINITE PASSION.

THE P.9100/R PANERAI MOVEMENT.
"One of the rarest chronograph functions in high-end watchmaking but one that is invaluable in the field of yacht racing, is the ability to precede the time measurement of the race with a countdown stage, which clearly displays the minutes and seconds remaining before the start of the race itself. The remarkable simplicity of using the Panerai Regatta countdown function is evidence of the excellence of the technical innovation achieved with the P.9100/R automatic chronograph calibre."
Light, strong and hypoallergenic, the remarkable physical, mechanical and corrosion-resistant qualities of titanium have made this metal one of the most valued in fine watchmaking, as well as a material of choice for the military, aeronautical and aerospace industries.
Officine Panerai has for many years promoted the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge, the most important international circuit of regattas for classic and vintage yachts. It has dedicated a series of watches to it which today have become cult items among collectors. To celebrate its special link with the world of classic yachts, Officine Panerai has created the P.9100/R calibre, the first Panerai watch with a function specifically associated with the world of sailing: the Regatta countdown function for the start of the race. The P.9100/R calibre is a development of the P.9100 automatic calibre with chronograph function. With its flyback chronograph with vertical clutch and column wheel, the P.9100/R is identical in architecture and diameter (13¾ lignes) to the P.9100 but it is a little thicker (9.55mm) and it has 26 more parts (328 altogether) as a result of the greater constructional complexity resulting from the addition of the Regatta countdown function.Discover calibre
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.
