Today, Panerai develops and produces its watches and movements in its manufactory in the Swiss Neuchâtel and combines Italian design and tradition with the finest Swiss watchmaking art.
The History of Panerai
In the year 1860, Giovanni Panerai settled down as a watchmaker in Florence. The history of Officine Panerai thus begins as a workshop, shop and first watchmaking school in the city. For many decades Panerai supplied precision instruments for the combat diver units of the Royal Italian Navy. The watches initially developed for use in depth by Panerai are known for their unprecedented legibility and luminosity in the dark. 1997 the brand became part of the Richemont group and launched on the international market.
Each Panerai product bears an individual identification number, which proves its authenticity. We provide two types of warranty, one covering manufacturing defects and one covering the technical services done on the watch.
PAM-Guard enables you to extend the international guarantee for your Panerai watch from two to eight years.
