PANERAI – Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback 44mm & Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Oro Rosso 44mm

Officine Panerai presents the Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback, a new chronograph with a flyback function and an automatic movement with a power reserve of three days. Available in a purely sports version in steel or as a more elegant one in red gold, the new chronograph is the first to be made by Officine Panerai using the new P.9100 calibre.

The flyback function, controlled by a push-button at eight o’clock, instantly returns the chronograph hands to zero and simultaneously restarts without it being necessary first to stop them and return them to zero by pressing the stop and reset buttons.

To make the times clear and easy to read, the chronograph minutes and seconds hands are both positioned centrally on the main dial and distinguished from each other by being different colours: the seconds hand is blue while the minute hand is steel or gold in colour, advancing instantly in one jump every 60 seconds.

This choice of colours makes it possible to preserve the quintessential design for the black dial, with simple bar hour markers and numerals at the cardinal points, a date window at three o’clock and a small seconds dial at nine o’clock.

The structure of the dial is that designed by Panerai in the late 1930s to ensure high visibility even in very low lighting conditions, and it is formed of two superimposed plates, the upper one being perforated corresponding to the markers on the dial so that the luminescence of the Super-LumiNova® can emerge.

The case of the new Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback is 44mm in diameter and water-resistant to 10 bar (about 100 metres), or 5 bar (about 50 metres) in the gold version.

The materials used are of absolute excellence: the steel is AISI 316L stainless steel, extremely resistant to corrosion, and the red gold is 5Npt, an alloy with a high percentage of copper, which gives the colouring greater intensity, and a proportion of platinum, which helps to prevent any oxidation.

Executed in the same case material and with a brushed finish, the characteristic bridge device with its lever for sealing the winding crown helps to ensure the high degree of water-resistance of the watch.

On the back of the case, the 12-sided caseback has at its centre a sapphire window which reveals the self-winding P.9100 movement.

It has a vertical clutch, a column wheel, two spring barrels connected in series which give the watch a power reserve of three days, a rotor which winds the springs of the barrels by moving in both directions, and a variable inertia balance which oscillates at 28,800 alternations/hour. Consisting of 302 components, the movement is 13¾ lignes in diameter and 8.15 mm thick.
