The Regatta Countdown Function
To celebrate its special link with the world of classic yachts, Officine Panerai has created the P.9100/R caliber, the first Panerai watch with a function specifically associated with the world of sailing: the Regatta countdown function for the start of the race. The indication of the countdown to the start is displayed by the two central hands, and it is controlled by the push-button at four o’clock. The minute hand moves backwards by one minute each time the push-button is pressed, until it reaches the position required for the duration of the countdown. At this point it is only necessary to press on the push-button at ten o’clock to start the chronograph function. The hands begin to move, indicating the minutes and seconds which remain before the start, and when the countdown is completed, they continue to measure the time, thus displaying the time elapsed since the start of the race until the chronograph is stopped.
