Panerai Watches

Panerai watches itself was founded in Florence in 1860 by Giovanni Panerai, the legacy that is his watchmaking company has lived on generation to generation through his family. Known for their precision instruments, they have made products for the Royal Italian Navy during WWI. They also created a luminescent chemical known now as Radiomir which they place on their watches for ease of reading; this technology was even employed, once again, by the Royal Italian Navy.

The straps were made extra long to be worn over diving suits, and Rolex was the supplier of the movement. Since then they have grown substantially into a company which produces their own movements and designs beautiful watches such as the Panerai Luminor and Panerai Radiomir. With experience and a colorful history behind them, it’s no wonder they have been so successful.

Panerai Luminor

Panerai LuminorThe Panerai Luminor seems to be a more modern take on their other traditional watch, the Radiomir. With similar design components such as a fixed bezel, metal construction, and simple details, this watch just as elegant and classy, but with a more modern feel. The watch comes in two variations which are quite subtle, yet still pretty.

They both have a steel bezel, but one has a white dial and black markings, while the other is the opposite: a black dial with white markings. Both of them have a black leather wrist strap with think black stitching, and even though the two watches are similar, they each have a different feeling to them, each of which is bold yet reserved.

Similarly to the Radiomir, and like all the other watches made by Panerai, it has the trademark illuminating quality, Radiomir, on the numbers and the hands to make it easier to read in darker situations, and it also has a Panerai-made movement.

Also like the Radiomir, this watch only has hour and minute hands which simplifies things and keeps the watch from being to busy, a quality which is to be admired. This watch seems to even be an improvement of the watch it was based on, due to its 300 meter water resistance. Whether this watch is being used for work or play, it is sure to stun and inspire second looks no matter what.

Panerai Radiomir

Panerai RadiomirAt a large 45 mm diameter, the Panerai Radiomir watch has a bold yet still classic look to it. With a basic metal and leather construction, this watch stands out and is also still traditional and elegant. Panerai kept the watch simple by only including the hour and minute hands, leaving out all the fancy details and making the watch striking and more interesting in the process.

The 100 meter water resistance and self-made movement by Panerai itself, along with all the other features, top this watch off and make it special. As for the look of it, it comes with either a ceramic, 18k pink gold, or steel dial, depending on the model you choose. The strap on each is the finest leather and has contrast stitching on some.

This watch also has a lot of prominent and fascinating history. The technology used to illuminate parts of the watch was developed almost a century ago by the Panerai company itself, and is used to this day on all of their watches. This watch was also created for members of the Rolay Italian Navy back in 1938. The fascinating history of this watch, along with the wonderful and conservative design, make this watch a true historical and yet modern marvel.
