Panerai was founded in 1860 by the watchmaker who created Radiomir - the first substance to give luminosity to dials. Renowned for its complex in-house movements, the storied brand designs highly functional timepieces that are made to exacting specifications and recall vintage diving instruments.

Founded in 1860 as a tiny shop on Ponte alle Grazie in Florence, Mr Giovanni Panerai’s “Orolegeria Svizzera” supplied equipment for the Royal Italian Navy in the early 20th century, including Rolex-engineered dive watches with its patented “Radiomir” luminescent coating. Now part of the Richemont Group, Panerai is a luxury brand in its own right, with a top-flight Swiss manufacture. The iconic “cushion” case shape remains, but today’s watches are more rigorously engineered than ever.
