The America’s Cup has to be the most exciting and challenging nautical event. This year it celebrates its 35th anniversary and does so with Panerai. This year’s event also means the introduction of the new America’s Cup Class foiling catamarans, which will reach speeds over 90 km/h, making this the Formula 1 of the seas. Only the world’s best sailors participate, and for this, they need a rugged watch to withstand this highly demanding and competitive environment.
The Panerai Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days Automatic fake watches certainly fits the bill. For this special occasion, Panerai fitted the 300 pieces limited edition of this model with a red seconds hand, as well as a strap with blue and red stitching, the official colors of the America’s Cup. The watch is still powered by Panerai’s manufacture caliber P9000, but this is now hiding behind a solid steel caseback engraved with the logo of the famous cup.
Next, to being the official partner of the America’s Cup does Panerai also sponsor two contestants. The first is ORACLE TEAM USA, the two-time winners of the cup, for which Panerai America’s Cup limited edition watches made three limited editions. The first is based on the Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic in black ceramic, now adorned in official America’s Cup colors and with a special engraving of the ORACLE TEAM USA boat on the back. Most interesting is that Panerai also equipped the watch with a nautical Tachymeter scale, allowing you to measure your speed on the water.
Last of the limited editions for ORACLE TEAM USA is the Luminor Marina ORACLE TEAM USA 8 Days in steel, which also features color details referring to the cup colors, as well as an engraved case back. Just as the other two watches, it also has a strap with the Cup’s logo in it, as well as matching stitching.
Panerai cheap replica watches also sponsors the SoftBank Team Japan. A memorable occasion, because Japan is competing once again in the America’s Cup for the first time in 15 years. This team’s watch is the same as the official watch of the America’s Cup, yet with a strap in different colors and an engraving of the competing boat on the case back. With these limited editions, Panerai sets the stage of what is most likely going to be a very exciting edition of the America’s Cup
