Officine Panerai boutique spreads across and allures to the classic, Italian style environment where shapes, colours and materials craft an atmosphere that draws its inspiration from the sea; Panerai’s distinctive element. From the historical supply of highly specialised precision instruments to the Italian Navy, up to the current sponsorship of the classic boats regatta circuit Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge, the sea has always played a leading role in the Florentine company’s history. Panerai’s newest addition boutique evokes this link through teak wood and steel, porthole-shaped windows and wavy wood walls recalling the ocean and the shapes of the most elegant sailing yachts.
ABOUT OFFICINE PANERAI:
Officine Panerai was founded in Florence in 1860 as a watch-making establishment, shop and school; for years it supplied the Italian Navy with precision timepieces, particularly to cover the needs of the special underwater diving corps. The projects it worked on at the time, including the Luminor and Radiomir watches, were covered by the military secrets act for years and Panerai watches were launched on the international market after the Richemont group purchased the brand in 1997.
Today, Officine Panerai develops and manufactures its watches and movements in Neuchâtel, combining Italian design and history with Swiss watch-making know-how. Panerai watches are sold all over the world through an exclusive network of distributors in addition to its boutiques worldwide.
