With a skillful blend of Italian style and Swiss technology, Panerai watches have been a consistent leader in the world of professional timing instruments for more than 140 years.
When Guido Panerai founded his company in Florence in 1860, it was with the commitment to build professional timekeepers more so than pocket watches.
His work evolved from early patents in timekeeping and optic fields to precision pocket watches and aiming sights for torpedoes. This direction was greatly influenced by his close relationship with the Royal Italian Navy. Shortly thereafter, Panerai watches became available to the world 50 years later with limited editions.
The brand of Officine Panerai watches has evolved, becoming an exclusive collector’s piece for many different reasons such as its deep-depth guaranteed water resistance, pure and elegant designs and extended power reserves. These unique designs are made from various materials like stainless steel, titanium and 18 carat gold. These among others are the reason why Officine Panerai watches have been and continue being at the top of its class.
Some of the most memorable series of Panerai watches are the Luminor and Radiomir. The Panerai Luminor is a reliable and resistant watch, specially designed for military purposes and has more than 8 designs. On the other hand, the Panerai Radiomir consists of only two designs that are recognized for their classic model with sports character. Distinctive in their design, Panerai watches are unmistakable with their easy-to-read screens and unique features.
Officine Panerai has presented its new take on the idea of a branded watch. Its growing family of Ferrari-branded chronograph watches has just received another member. This time, it is a limited edition model with its 45mm case covered with special DLC coating. The latter not only provides the timekeeper a more menacing deep-black color but also protects the pricey watch from inevitable bumps and scratches. Matching the black case is a natural black rubber strap with a Ferrari logo. )
400 examples of the Panerai Ferrari California Flyback Chronograph will be made. The watches are fitted with a convex sapphire crystal, and a thick padded strap in alligator leather accented with contrasting white stitching. The water resistance of this model is rated for 100 meters.
