The three new luminor yachts challenge watches arise from the legendary
link between Panerai and the world of the sea, which began more than a
century ago when the company first supplied precision instruments to
the italian navy. Three new chronographs with a strong sports character,
technically superb and inspired by the unique beauty of classic yachts.

The gold used by Panerai is a special alloy, different from standard gold, called 5NPT. Panerai 5NPT has a percentage of copper giving the material an intense red hue that is particularly elegant and sophisticated. Platinum is another fundamental element of the Panerai gold alloy, as it helps to prevent the metal from oxidising.
