LUMINOR REGATTA TRANSAT CLASSIQUE
TO CELEBRATE THE MOST EXTREME CLASSIC RACE IN THE WORLD – 3,000 MILES ACROSS THE ATLANTIC OCEAN – PANERAI HAS CREATED THE LUMINOR TRANSAT CLASSIQUE REGATTA, AN EXCLUSIVE SPECIAL EDITION OF 150 EXAMPLES OF THE CHRONOGRAPH WITH A REVERSE COUNTDOWN MECHANISM FOR INDICATING THE MOMENTS PRECEDING THE START OF A RACE WITH THE GREATEST ACCURACY.
Panerai presents the Luminor Regatta Transat Classique, a remarkable new watch for wearing at
sea, created in only 150 examples to honour the most thrilling international regatta for classic
yachts: the Panerai Transat Classique 2019. The challenge is an epic one: in January 2019 a
fleet of classic yachts will set sail from Lanzarote and cross the Atlantic Ocean, heading for their
destination, St Kitts in the Caribbean Sea. The crews will face the 3,000 nautical miles of this route
– which is engraved on the back of the watch together with the logo of the race – relying only on
their skill, their courage and the timbers of their magnificent yachts, trying to emulate the great
navigators of the past in this race which is not only against the other competitors but above all a
battle against the power of nature. Also taking part in the race will be Panerai’s 1936 Bermudan
ketch, Eilean, tackling the 38th transatlantic crossing of her career.
