Combining Italian design and history with the fine art of Swiss craftsmanship.

Founded in 1860 in Florence, Officine Panerai was originally a supplier of precision instruments to the Italian Navy. The timepieces which were created at that time, including the Luminor and Radiomir watches, continued to be shrouded in military secrecy for many years, until the purchase of the brand by the Richemont Group in 1997 and the brand’s subsequent launch on the international market. Today, Officine Panerai develops and produces its own movements and watches – combining Italian design and history with Swiss craftsmanship – in its factory at Neuchâtel. These are sold worldwide through an exclusive global network of authorised dealers and in Officine Panerai’s own boutiques throughout the world.
