Panerai goes beyond the regular to create watches that stand out for finesse, design, accuracy and movement complexity. The watches have an unmistakable identity and exude exclusivity. The iconic cushion-shaped cases and large crown guards lend a signature appearance to the Panerai watches, making them highly popular among enthusiasts.
Panerai was one of the first watchmakers to innovate the concept and application of lume watches. The watches offer enhanced luminosity for better legibility in the dark. Combining technical prowess with a simplistic design, Panerai presents some of the finest timepieces today, including the Luminor, Radiomir, Submersible and Luminor 1950.
Giovanni Panerai founded Panerai in 1860 under the name OfficinePanerai in Florence, Italy. At that time, it served as a watchmaking school. Later in 1900, under the guidance of Guido Panerai, grandson of Giovanni, the company started creating timepieces for the Royal Italian Navy, featuring large dials with luminescent markings and a unique crown-protecting device. By 1970, the company no longer provided watches to the Italian Marina Military and started offering watches to the general citizens.
Under the supervision of Dino Zei, the first non-Panerai to lead the company, the brand achieved great success by directing the focus to aerospace, dive tools and other radio equipment. However, it was in 1993 that Panerai delivered its first branded customer watches. Since then, there’s no turning back, and Panerai has established itself as a luxury watch brand, creating watches synonymous with sophistication and prestige.
