Panerai Offers Ltd. Edition Luminor 1950 PCYC 3 Days Chrono

Officine Panerai has sponsored the replica Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge since 2005, which has now become the most important international regatta circuit for classic and vintage sailboats. The calendar now comprises 10 of the most prestigious regattas in the sailing capitals of the world. The season just kicked off the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta and will land next in Antibes in the French Riviera from May 31-June 4.
Winners of each regatta receive specially engraved Panerai Luminor Regatta watches as prizes, which are rapidly becoming the Rolex Daytonas of the sailing world. (Not to be outdone Rolex awards Submariners to a select group of yachtsmen in its own sponsored regatta series.) 
There is no doubt that the replica Panerai is celebrating the new season of sail-powered competition with three new limited edition watches: two Luminor 1950 PCYC 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatics in stainless steel and a Luminor 1950 Regatta PCYC 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic in titanium. These will mark the start of a new series of PCYC watches for the brand. The 1950 denotes a historical reference for the watch, dating from the early days of the Luminor, and a vintage style dial similar to the Panerai Luminor GMT. The handsome chronographs designed for timing the starts of yacht races have the legend PCYC FLYBACK on the dial. The back of the case reveals the real distinction of the special edition models, however, with an engraving of a classic yacht and the inscription Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge.
The two 44mm flyback chronographs sport Panerai’s Manufacture automatic caliber. The flyback function means the user can press a pusher to instantly zero the chronograph hands and immediately restart them (making them “fly back”). This fake watch is in an affordable cheap price and sized at 47mm is the real gem here. The larger size bucks the trend of scaled-down sports watches and will certainly appeal to a much smaller customer base, but Pieria replica watch enthusiasts hold the 47mm models in good esteem, and after all, the Panerai did start the oversized watch trend. From August to September, the PCYC races occupy the waters of New England, with regattas in Marblehead, Newport and Nantucket. Can you guess out who will be ready to win the watch?

Best replica Panerai releases three nautical chronographs

Panerai is felicitating its constant relationship with the sport of classic yacht racing by launching three automatic flyback chronographs equipped with a series of functions directly connected to the nautical world. The so-called PCYC (Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge) chronos provide three slightly different takes on the form though, so let’s take a quick view at what makes each new model special.
For the first model, while it measures 47mm as well, is made of titanium, and is powered by the same chronograph movement, it is a totally different proposition to the other one which Jack tested in situ during the Corinthian Classic. Don’t mistake it in the photos here for a rattrapante – it has central chronograph seconds and minute hands. There’s also a chronograph hour counter at three o’clock and a small seconds register at nine o’clock. Unlike that model, it comes in a classically styled Luminor 1950 case with a polished bezel, and the 15-minute countdown is placed on the dial’s rehaut, between nine and 12 o’clock.
I guess that you may wonder, as I did when I first saw this replica watch, how you quickly get the chronograph minute hand in position at the start the countdown. The answer: by pushing the button located at four o’clock, set into the crown guard. Each press moves the hand back by one minute. It’s quite a clever execution really, and the placement of the countdown in the fourth quarter of the dial allows for the addition a nautical tachymeter scale too. replica Panerai
This model looks very much the part of your typical replica Panerai. It has a deep black dial and a full complement of those slightly bubbly Arabic numerals for the hours, rendered in a golden hue that is meant to look well-aged. The replica watch, on the other hand, has a bright, ivory-colored dial with luminous dots to mark the hours and batons at 12 and six o’clock (double and single, respectively). The result is a pair of cheap watches that, while technically identical, appeared completely different anyway.
