Officine Panerai is an Italian watch brand that specialises in creating exceptional watches that often have a tough and sporty look. Since its founding in 1860, Panerai specialised in precision instruments for the Italian and Egyptian navy. During the 30s Panerai also added movements to their business. These movements were made in a very limited amount.
The Panerai design is characterised by a large case, metal rings for fastening the strap and a leather strap, long enough to wear the watch on the wetsuit. The rear cap and crown are screwed into the case for better water resistance. The new design contains a sandwiched dial, consisting of a top plate in which the Arabic numerals and hour markers are perforated and a bottom plate which is luminous by the use of Radium.
Officine Panerai is available at our Schaap en Citroen jewellery stores in Amsterdam and Rotterdam.
