Brief history of Panerai
In the 1860s, Panerai set up a work shop in Florence making precision mechanical instruments. The work shops carried on into the 20th century as “Officine Panerai.”
By the 1930s the workshops were making a range of wrist-worn instruments for frogmen; compasses, depth gauges and the likes.In 1935, Officine Panerai was commissioned by the Italian Navy to design watches specifically for underwater usage including clear visibility and radibility.
After some initial prototypes Officine Panerai delivered its first diver model watches in 1938. These were fitted with Rolex movements (and Rolex crowns and case backs).
Officine Panerai progressively improved its designs, with increased luminosity of numerals and hands with the present famed crown-locking device.
Subsequent models were fitted with an Angelus 8 day (marked “8 giorno”) movement. The radioactive radium which gave such legibility to the Radiomir models was replaced with the distinctly less toxic compound “Luminor”.
In 1993, Officine Panerai started to reproduce the Luminor, and the Mare Nostrum chronograph, basically targeted at the collectors market. These were produced only in very limited numbers.
In 1997, Officine Panerai was acquired by the Vendôme group. The new owners continue to produce the available models in small numbers in “unique editions” under the smart and strategic marketing approach.
