The company was founded in 1860, in Florence by the Guido Panerai & Figlio family. The company supplied the Royal Italian Navy and its commandos. Its reputation is based on instruments of high precision and technological sophistication. It is a name synonymous for quality and reliability. In the 1930’s, Guiseppe and Maria and their children opened a dealership called “Orologeria Svizzera”. “Officine Panerai” developed the first wristwatch prototype in 1936. The production of watches started with the Radiomir in 1938, which was used by the commandos of the Italian Navy. Then came the Luminor also used by the Italian Navy. In 1993, Panerai offered both models on the international market. In 2005, the compay introduced the P.2002 caliber featuring three mainspring barrels. Panerai became highly collectible especially the models used by the navy as older models were only limited edition of maximum 300 pieces. Since 1997, Panerai is owned by the “Richemont Group”.
