Panerai is not only the king of the seas by way of the military, it has also achieved the status by being the designated official watch of the America’s Cup—among the world’s oldest and most prestigious sports events.

The Florence-based, Swiss-made company has been creating timepieces especially made for use when traveling the waters and has made a mark for its passion for the seas. It has even previously hosted its own yachting competition, which is  important in the recently established partnership between the company and the America’s Cup. For the event, Panerai has gone back to its classic Luminor series—the company has released five models especially for the event, one of which is the Panerai Luminor Marina 1950 America’s Cup.

Release Date & Price

Release date: 2017
Price: US$8,100.00

Fans of the luxury watchmaker will see a familiar sight in the Panerai Luminor Marina 1950 America’s Cup as the exterior is basically the same with other models from the series. This time however, the watch is a limited edition and will flaunt the colors of the competition on the strap plus an engraving to mark the momentous collaboration.

Specifications:

  • Movement: Automatic mechanical
  • Caliber: in-house, P.9010
  • Power reserve: 3 days
  • 28,800 alternations/hour
  • Case: 6.0 mm thick, 4mm wide
  • Jewels: 31 jewels
  • Components: 200
  • Functions: Date, hours, minutes, small seconds
  • Water Resistance: 30 bar

Pros

For the sports and watch enthusiast, the Panerai Luminor Marina 1950 America’s Cup is a timepiece to behold. The watch is sporty and stylish, the dial is readable with the light markers and dark background, which is especially ideal when out on the sea. Its functions are convenient for the event, as well as in other occasions that call for jumping from one timezone to another or in between seasons. The change on the hours is automatically reflected on the date function, making it a watch you can use ordinarily with almost no fuss. The in-house caliber P.9010 that allows one to calibrate the hours without affecting the minute hand is also impressive with its power reserve of up until 3 days and decent water resistance capacity of 30 bar.

Cons

The handsome watch is impressive both in and out, there is no question. However, it is difficult to acquire, considering that Panerai has only released 300 of these. The sporty timepiece is also best reserved for non-formal events, unless you want to call attention to yourself for the America’s Cup colors displayed on the strap.

Conclusion
The Panerai Luminor Marina 1950 America’s Cup is just like your usual non-commemorative Luminor watch, which means that it is impressive both in appearance and in complexity. These limited edition watches are hard to find though as there are only hundreds released, so extra caution should be practiced when purchasing to avoid fakes.
