Panerai Luminor 1950 PCYC Chrono Flyback Limited Editions Replica Leather Strap Watches

Panerai cheap replica watches chief executive Angelo Bonati is a keen sailor, and for that reason the watchmaker has been a sponsor of the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge (PCYC) since 2004. Open only to yachts built of wood or metal before 1950 (known as “vintage yachts”) and before 1976 (“classic yachts”), as well as replicas of such yachts, the PCYC is comprised of several regattas over the course of the year.
This year’s PCYC kicked off with a regatta in Antigua, which is followed by the Mediterranean circuit in spring. Alongside the start of the 2017 season was the launch of three Luminor 1950 PCYC chronographs – a pair in 44mm steel cases, and a 47mm model in titanium with regatta countdown.

The replica Panerai Luminor 1950 PCYC 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic watches come in two guises, with the dial in either black (PAM 653) or ivory (PAM 654). Both share the same 44mm steel case, as well as the P.9100 movement that’s automatic and features a flyback function. And like all of Panerai’s in-house chronograph movements it has a vertical clutch and column wheel – hidden beneath a solid case back engraved with the PCYC logo.

Both dials have the same nautical tachymetre with a scale in knots, which can measure the average speed of a boat over one nautical mile. The black dial has Arabic hour markers, while the ivory dial has dot-and-batons indices, but both feature faux-vintage Super-Luminova.

The Luminor 1950 Regatta PCYC 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic (PAM 652) is bigger and slightly fancier. The case is 47mm, titanium and contains the P.9100/R movement.A variant of Panerai’s in-house chronograph movement, the P.9100/R has an added regatta countdown function. The pusher at four o’clock moves the gold central minute hand backwards in one minute steps until it hits the desired countdown time.

Pressing the button at 10 o’clock starts the chronograph, which also starts the regatta countdown. The gold minute hand will proceed to countdown the minutes to the start of the race, signified by 12 o’clock on the dial, and then start recording the elapsed time after the start of the race once it passes the 12 o’clock marker.

Panerai Mare Nostrum Chronograph PAM 716 Leather Strap Men’s Diving Replica Watches

Not officially launched at SIHH 2017 but widely rumoured to be imminent, the Panerai Mare Nostrum Acciaio PAM00716 cheap watches revisits a 1990s classic, a reissue thrice removed from the original.

Its origins lie with a prototype (or perhaps several) of an oversized, 52mm wristwatch chronograph produced in 1943, which was intended for officers of the Italian navy. The watch never made it to production, though one example surfaced at Christie’s in 2005 and Panerai introduced two pricey, Minerva-powered remakes in recent years.

Then in 1997, before Swiss luxury Panerai fake watches conglomerate Richemont acquired Panerai, the watchmaker introduced the modern day Mare Nostrum chronograph, inspired by the giant original but more practical at 42mm. These pre-Vendôme watches – Richemont used to be known as the Vendôme Luxury Group – were the ref. 5218-301/A, and included a batch of “Slytech” special editions made for American actor Sylvester Stallone.

The latest Panerai Mare Nostrum chronograph PAM 716 takes after the ref. 5218-301/A, with the same dial and 42mm steel case. Most of the watch remains identical to the 1993 model, with minor exceptions like additional lettering on the back and crown.

While the dial is the same blue as before, the Super-Luminova on the hands and hour markers is a shade of tan that mimics the aged original. On the 1993 watches the luminous paint was tritium, which was white when new but over time has darkened into the tan that’s found on the new PAM 718.

The movement also remains the same, being the hand-wound OP XXXIII, which is actually an ETA 2801 topped by a Dubois-Depraz chronograph module. It has a 42-hour power reserve.
