Founded in Florence in 1860 as a workshop, shop and school of watch-making for many decades Panerai supplied the Italian Navy specialist diving corps with precision instruments created for deep underwater use. Panerai watches are known for their unparalleled legibility and luminosity in the dark. In 1997 the brand was acquired by the Richemont Group and launched on the international market. Today Panerai develops and crafts its movements and watches at its Neuchatel manufacture. They are combining Italian design flair and history with Swiss Horological expertise.

The Submersible

Panerai introduces a real instrument for survival: A professional underwater watch with phenomenal technical characteristics and a distinctly military appearance. The Panerai Submersible Marina Militare Carbotech™ model boasts a 47mm case crafted from carbotech, a material based on carbon fibre which was introduced into the world of high-quality watchmaking by Panerai. It is both lighter than titanium and stronger than stainless steel. These robust watches are created to endure the demands of professional diving and have supplied precision and reliability to the Italian Navy.
