Officine Panerai watches are a perfect synthesis and combination of Italian design, Swiss technology and passion for the sea. Originally a supplier of specialized watches for military use, Panerai is associated with the Italian and Egyptian armies. Panerai watches are historically linked to Xe Flottiglia MAS, a unit of the Italian Royal Navy combat swimmers operating during the Second World War. Although it is still strong in this atypical legacy, Panerai has slowly abandoned its status as a niche brand for connoisseurs and watchmaking history buffs to evolve into a phenomenon brand. From now on, every hobbit identifies a Panerai watch, which has become a symbol of the Italian lifestyle. Panerai has the chic to create contemporary watches with a delicately classic touch. The dials are usually black, very spacious with large numbers and indexes, sometimes luminescent, allowing excellent reading day and night. Very elegant, the Panerai watches are worn with a suit as well as casual clothes.
