Panerai was born in 1860 in Florence, cradle of the Renaissance, which have made Italy famous for its creativity and genius. Values that Officine Panerai expresses through its watches, which it reinterprets over time. A watch-making laboratory, highly specialized since the nineteenth century, supplier of measurement and precision instruments to the Italian Navy in the nineteen hundreds, fine watchmaker and international brand in the twenty-first century. The deep-rooted links with the world of the sea, the true heritage of the Brand, bestow on each watch a sporting character that is unique.
Panerai’s history marks time itself. Its roots can be traced back to when it was the exclusive supplier of high-precision instruments to the Royal Italian Navy in the early nineteen hundreds. Riding on submersible torpedoes, the commandos were the protagonists of epic endeavours. On their wrists, they wore the precision and luminescence of Panerai Radiomir and Luminor models.
