The Panerai classics
In 1936 Panerai supplied the Radiomir to the Italian Navy. The entrepreneur recognized early on that radium is an important component of diving watches. This is the only way the watch can shine under water. Since radium is extremely dangerous, they looked for a similar material. They patented the tritium-based substance called Luminor. And so the successor model was born.
Panerai Luminor Marina
The main difference to the Panerai Radiomir was the lever clasp above the winding crown. Panerai did not patent this until 1955. The mechanism was ingenious: the winding crown is pressed into a cork surface seal with the folding bar, making it water-resistant to a diving depth of 200 meters. Conversely, the lock can be released quickly and an unsecured crown can be recognized by the protruding bracket.
Is the further development of the Luminor Marina. The diver's watch has a unidirectional rotating bezel. An important function when diving - the bezel rotates in one direction in one-minute increments and this allows the remaining dive time to be calculated.

Model variant: DAYLIGHT
Silvester Stallone wore this Panerai in his film "Daylight" in 1996. He acted as a brand ambassador and has remained loyal to the brand to this day.
Panerai stands for Italian design
Are you one of those people for whom a wristwatch is not just a timepiece, but an expression of an attitude towards life ? Then you should definitely read on, because this is exactly what Panerai luxury watches have represented for more than a century and a half.
When Giovanni Panerai founded the first watchmaking business in Florence in 1860 , he laid the foundation for Panerai's corporate history.
The Panerai Radiomir was born in the 1940s. The Panerai family constructed this watch for the Italian Navy .
Many more models followed for the Italian Navy, which were characterized by large, impressive watches - up to 60mm in diameter, high water resistance and a rotating bezel to calculate the diving time.
Panerai has been part of the Richemont Group since 1997.
