The ultimate in watchmaking: history, prestige, technology and sex appeal.

Spoil yourself or a loved one at Officine Panerai with one of their world class watches. Based in Florence since 1860 as one of the original watchmaker shops on the Ponte alle Grazie bridge, the shop moved to its current location in front of the Baptistery at the turn of the century. By then, Officine Panerai had made a name for itself as the official supplier of the Royal Italian Navy.

Over the decades it continued supplying the Italian navy not only with the latest technology watches that could be submerged to never-before-seen depths by divers, but also depth gauges, torches, compasses and other underwater instruments which can still be seen in the Historical Archives hosted in the shop. Don't be shy, to be let in just ring the buzzer on the right hand side of the door.
