Combine Swiss technology with Italian flair for design and you get Panerai watches. Founded two centuries ago, the Italian classic timepiece is just as historic as it is contemporary today. Panerai resonates boldness tempered by fine lines and simple solid color backdrop (often jet black and ash grey). Its Radiomir 1940 has the adventurous air of its time, when aviators would test the limits of their crafts across big swath of seas. Daring and sturdy, Radiomir 1940 and Panerai’s historic collection will charm the classic lover. On the other hand, its Luminor line, while keeping in tune with Panerai’s romance with the color simplicity of early-nineteenth century (leathery brown) presents more complex and exciting dial and casing style. The Chronograph Platino for one appeals to a modern CEO who demands function and vanity in one piece.
Panerai is available at Shreve & Co. on Post Street, San Francisco.
