In the 1930s, Panerai became the official supplier of watches and instruments for the Royal Italian Navy, designing timepieces to function reliably in dire underwater missions. This partnership guided Panerai to create some of the best dive watches in the world. The need for performance and precision watches and instruments pushed Panerai to build pieces that would withstand the pressures of rugged use, especially underwater, which is still carried into the production of their watches today.
An Unmistakable Identity
Today, Panerai’s coveted watches are a natural blend of Italian design, Swiss technology and passion for the sea. Meticulously crafted and powered by in-house movements, each Panerai is a masterful combination of style and function. They are instantly recognizable for their size and trademark look, whether it be the unique crown guard on Luminor models or the oversized aesthetic of the Radiomir. Their bold styling and oversized case designs make Panerai a fitting addition for every modern wardrobe. To wear a Panerai is a statement; what statement are you making with your current watch?
