The 2019 Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge collection launches three new best watches – as it is often the case with these nautical-inspired pieces.All of them had a classic, slightly vintage flair with warm colours and 1940s dials. Although the 2019 models share multiple technical elements with these previous models, the visual impact is bolder, more modern and much sportier.
The Luminor Yachts Challenge PAM00764
The first model in this 2019 Panerai Yachts Challenge collection, the PAM00764, is a sporty titanium piece with a black dial and blue accents. The 44mm case panerai replica alternates brushed and polished surfaces and comes with a black rubber strap.
The dial of the PAM00764 is also about sports and modernity, with a black background, no faux-patina on the indexes and hands, and all the chronograph indications are highlighted in blue. Even the chronograph pushers feature a small blue band.
The Luminor Yachts Challenge PAM00788
The second model in the 2019 Panerai Replica Watches Yachts Challenge collection, the PAM00788, is the boldest and sportiest of the lot. While identical mechanically to the watch presented above, its case is made of matte black ceramic, with a black DLC-coated titanium caseback. The device protecting the crown is also in black ceramic. Finishing the sporty and stealth look is a black rubber strap.
The layout of the dial of reference PAM00788 is identical to the model shown above, with a matte black background, blue accents for all the chronograph indications and contrasting hands for the time – which are coated in black to match the case. The Arabic numerals, the hour markers, and hands are all coated with white luminous paint. One difference is the knot scale that is printed on the dial and not on the inner flange.
The Luminor Yachts Challenge PAM001020
Last but not least, Panerai Replica also has a more elegant, more luxurious proposal in its 2019 Panerai Yachts Challenge collection. The reference PAM001020 has the same specifications as the two models above, however, its case is made of warm, brushed and polished 5NPT gold. Due to the material, the water-resistance is rated at 50m. Delivered on a blue alligator strap, this one is earmarked to be worn at the Yacht Club and not on deck.
The dial is also more elegant on this PAM001020, Best Panerai Replica with a deep blue colour and a satiné sunray finish. The dial still retains its sandwich construction, with white Arabic numerals. On this model, the chronograph indications are indicated with silver-coated hands while the time is displayed by gold-coated hands.
