The PAM652 PCYC Chrono Flyback 47 is part of Panerai's Yachting Timer Series; Rolex has their Yacht-Master II, Panerai has their Regatta Chrono Flyback - Same functionality (for the most part) except Panerai's chrono flyback is more complicated!
The 'Regatta Chrono Flyback' complication combines a traditional chronograph with a retrograde countdown timer function. Its that simple but technically (and under the dial) very complex! Here is how it works:
There are 2 buttons on the 9:00 side which control the chronograph and 1 button on 3:00 side at 4:00 which controls the retrograde chrono yachting timer. Pushing the button at 4:00 will move the retrograde timer hand (bold and nicely contrasting WHITE) in a counter-clockwise direction (counting down from 60) to time a count-down interval up to 59 minutes. When the chronograph is started, the timer hand moves clockwise towards 12:00 and that is how you know when your time is up. The button at 8:00 stops the chronograph (and timer hand); the button at 10:00 resets the chronograph and resets timer hand back to 12. (It seems complicated but is very intuitive after you have played with it for a few minutes! --'Haha, 'that's what she said last night!!!' lets see whos paying attention.....)

Solid Titanium caseback with PCYC (Panerai Classic Yacht Challenge) logo engraved in relief, individually numbered 'T 285/500'
