I had the opportunity to take shots of many of Panerai’s new introductions for the year during the SIHH fair. Please forgive the dust, fingerprints, etc…these shots were taken handheld very quickly!

PAM526 – LUMINOR 1950 REGATTA 3 DAYS CHRONO FLYBACK AUTOMATIC TITANIO – 47mm
Featuring a regatta countdown feature for yacht racing starts, the PAM526 is based on Panerai’s new P.9100 automatic chronograph. From Panerai’s press material, here’s how it works:
The remarkable simplicity of using the Regatta countdown function is evidence of the excellence of the technical innovation achieved by the new P.9100/R automatic chronograph calibre, the movement of the new Luminor 1950 Regatta 3 Days Chrono Flyback Titanio. An orange push-button at four o’clock moves the central orange chronograph minute hand back one minute at a time, until it is at the correct position in relation to the length of the countdown. On starting the chronograph, by pushing the chronograph stop/start button at ten o’clock, the relative hands begin to move, indicating first the minutes and seconds which remain until the start, and then, when the countdown has finished, the time elapsed since the start of the race. The push-button at eight o’clock ends the time measurement, returning all the chronograph hands to zero. Alternatively, if it is operated while the hands are still moving, it activates the return-to-zero (flyback) function of these hands, thus enabling a new time interval to be measured immediately without having to operate the stop and reset buttons.
