Panerai 47mm 3-day power reserve flyback chronograph titanium watch
The moment when the classic sailing race started was a wonderful moment. Sailboats of all levels are gathered on the starting line defined by buoys, and some of the sailboats have been used for hundreds of years. These sailing boats only rely on the wind that blows the sails as the power, and the skills of the captain and the crew to sail. They only carry a few simple pieces of equipment, but they must implement complex tactics to navigate the ocean, wind direction and time. Timing is especially important: a few minutes before the start of the game, the referee sends a countdown signal using the sailing flag. These maritime heroes must be arranged behind the buoys, and they must not cross the invisible starting line before the game officially starts. This is not easy for sailing boats, whose huge sails are often as high as tens of meters and exposed to unpredictable natural conditions.
The 3-day power reserve flyback chronograph titanium watch came into being through the connection between Panerai and the world of classic sailing boats. This chronograph is equipped with an automatic movement and a three-day power reserve. In addition, it also has a regatta countdown function, which is specially created for the moment when the regatta begins. The use of the regatta countdown function is quite simple, confirming the extraordinary technological innovation achieved by the new P.9100 / R self-winding chronograph movement, which is equipped with the new Luminor 1950 Regatta 3 Days Chrono Flyback Titanio 3-day power reserve flyback Movement inside a chronograph titanium watch. At 4 o’clock, there is an orange button. Each time you press it, you can move the orange center chronograph minute hand back one minute until it is in the position corresponding to the countdown length. Press the stop / start button at the 10 o’clock position and the relevant hands start to rotate. It first indicates the minutes and seconds remaining until the start of the game. After the countdown ends, it continues to display the time elapsed since the start of the game. The 8 o’clock button is used to stop the chronograph operation and return all chronograph hands to the zero position. Conversely, if the button is operated while the hand is still running, it will start the zero reset (flyback) function of the chronograph hand, so that a new time period can be immediately measured without pressing the stop and zero buttons separately.
It adopts a sandwich structure, with Panerai’s classic large linear time scales and numbers, and the elements that make the timing function clearly legible also add icing on the entire dial.

P.9100 / R movement
Over the years, Panerai has been dedicated to promoting the Panerai Classic Sailing Challenge, which is the most important classic sailing and classical sailing competition in the world. The brand has also contributed a series of watches for this event, and today they have become collectors’ treasures. Like haute horlogerie, the world of fascinating classic sailing is a unique blend of history, technology, craftsmanship and aesthetics. Like every Panerai watch, its inestimable value makes every classic sailing boat unique. In order to highlight the brand’s inextricable relationship with the world of classic sailing, the brand specially introduced the P.9100 / R movement, and it became the first watch of Panerai equipped with special functions for sailing world: used to count down the moment of the sailing race.
The P.9100 / R movement was developed based on the P.9100 self-winding movement equipped with a timing function. The P.9100 / R movement is equipped with a flyback timing device consisting of a vertical clutch and a column wheel. It is the same in structure and diameter (13¾ law minutes) as the P.9100 movement, but it is slightly thicker than the P.9100 movement (9.55 Millimeters) and 26 more components (328 in total). This is due to the added regatta countdown function, which makes the structure more complicated.
The countdown to the start of the game is indicated by two center hands and controlled by a button at 4 o’clock. Each time you press the button, the minute hand will move backward by one minute in units of one minute until it reaches the time required for the countdown. At this time, simply press the button at 10 o’clock to start the timekeeping function. The hand then starts to move, indicating the number of minutes and seconds remaining before the start of the game. After the countdown is complete, the hands will continue to measure time, and the time elapsed since the start of the game will be displayed until the time is stopped. As with the entire timing device, when the countdown function is activated, the device that pulls the minute hand back is the column wheel. The column wheel here is slightly higher than the P.9100 movement, so that it can engage the correction lever installed in a higher position, because it is set on an additional splint.
Dear watch lovers, wear this three-day power flyback watch to conquer the ocean.
