In 1860 Giovanni Panerai opened his watch shop in Florence, on the Ponte alle Grazie: boutique and laboratory, but also the city's first watchmaking school. Thus began the story of Panerai. A story that will lead it to become one of the greatest Swiss watchmaking excellence.
It is on the eve of the Second World War that Panerai creates the first prototypes of the model that will take the name of Radiomir. The recipients are the incursors of the Command of the 1st Submarine Group of the Italian Royal Navy and only ten copies are produced. The features are the same that make this model still one of the icons of the house: large case (47 mm) in steel with a cushion shape, luminescent numbers and indexes, wire lugs welded to the case, mechanical movement with manual winding replica omega watches, wide water resistant strap and long enough to be tied over the suit worn by the raiders.
To celebrate the bond with the sea, Panerai buys and restores Eilean, the Bermudian ketch of 1936 built in the legendary Fife yards. After three years, a total of 40,000 hours of work, on October 22nd 2009, the launching ceremony is organized at the Sailing Section of the Navy of La Spezia. In the spotlight of fans of the Florentine brand there is also the re-edition of the Egyptian, the model that Panerai had made for the Egyptian Navy in 1956.
For Panerai, it is a process to be built through a series of interventions such as the construction of a zero-impact manufacturing facility and a relative alternative transport plan, more environmentally friendly for all employees who go to work replica Breitling avenger, attention to the materials used (both for products that regard the paper of all printed materials) and the realization of projects in the non-profit sector that have the goal of being able to have continuity over time and a real impact on the community.fake watches replica watches uk replica rolex watches fake Rolex watches fake Rolex
