The Luminor Base Logo collection faithfully brings Mr. Bonati’s legacy full circle, and now includes an in-house manually wound Panerai movement.
aBlogtoWatch’s guests came wearing their finest Panerai timepieces as well as other timepieces from all around the Southern California region. aBlogtoWatch personally wishes to thank the many valued community members in Southern California who brought their good taste, personalities, and passion for watches together in the company of Panerai.

A tiny seconds display features at 9 o’clock, in common with different non-chronograph models in the Panerai catalog, as well as a 12-hour chronograph enroll positioned at 3 o’clock. Both subdials share the identical proportion and provide a balance to the dial that’s extremely agreeable.Two fundamental chronograph hands attribute on the dial. The blue hand is a fundamental chronograph seconds hand, whereas the orange hand is a fundamental chronograph minutes hand. It’s the latter that offers a fascinating point of differentiation.Prior into a regatta beginning, the yachts have to assemble for the start and also a warning, typically five minutes prior to the commencement of a race, has been made with flags and an audible signal. The wearer of this PAM 526 can press the orange push-piece, at 4 o’clock, to advance the orange chronograph minutes hand counter-clockwise to the “start” area, indicated on the dial along with flange.The 2 chronograph hands begin counting down to zero and then continue afterwards after the race has commenced.A minute rail enclosing the dial helps ease of read-off. The inner flange, in addition to carrying the countdown scale, reveals values around 15 minutes before the start of the race. What’s more, in addition, it features a tachymeter scale calibrated for knots, ideal for determining the rate of a yacht within a specified distance.It all sounds very complex, however, a couple of minutes of familiarisation shortly shows the watch to be somewhat easy to use.The start / stop chronograph button is positioned at 10 o’clock. The reset button is positioned at 8 o’clock. This really is a flyback chronograph permitting the wearer to press the reset button although the stop-watch is in operation. This results in the chronograph hands to stop, reset and begin in one simple action, proving useful for timing consecutive occasions.

Panerai is a often polarizing brand which has, in recent years, found a massive spike in popularity and has become a marginally household name in men’s luxury wrist watches. Now, often included in the brands that your non-watchnerd buddies are aware of, they hold rank in upscale jewellery stores alongside Breitling and Rolex. Personally, I’ve loved the Panerai Radiomir so long as I have loved watches, but both the price and the instance size has frequently been too much for my own reality. What we have here is really a 47mm Luminor case constructed from titanium and encapsulating Panerai’s in house P.9100/R automatic chronograph movement using a flyback attribute and fundamental minutes (orange) and moments (blue) hands. This information layout allows the Regatta 3 Days to stick with the recognizable Panerai dial aesthetic while still offering an effective opinion of this elapsed time using a maximum amount of 12 hours. This layout is superbly elegant and using colour is just sufficient to place the PAM00526 apart from their other chronograph models.
