  • Catalogue Essay

    - The Panerai Luminor boasts a rich history, tracing its origins back to its role as an Italian Navy tool watch in the 1960s. Over the years, it has evolved into one of the most iconic timepieces in the Panerai collection, maintaining its distinctive aesthetic and heritage to this day.

    - Featuring a captivating sandwich dial, the indexes and luminescent hands are elegantly tinged with a subtle brown hue, exuding a vintage charm. The absence of small seconds and the presence of a flat sapphire crystal lend the watch an exceptionally sleek, uncluttered appearance. Furthermore, its remarkable 8-day power reserve allows the wearer the convenience of only having to wind it once a week.

    - Presented without reserve and in outstanding overall condition, this watch comes complete with its warranty and accessories, solidifying its position as one of the finest time-only offerings in Panerai's modern lineup.

  • Artist Biography


    Italian • 1860

    Known for its robust designs and large case sizes, Officine Panerai was established in 1860 by Giovanni Panerai in Florence, Italy. Around 1900, Giovanni's grandson Guido Panerai took over, and Panerai became the supplier to the Regia Marina — the Royal Italian Navy. After supplying the navy with high-precision instruments for a number of years, Officine Panerai created Radiomir, a radium-based powder that gives luminosity to the dials of sighting instruments and devices. By 1936, the Royal Italian Navy approached Panerai again with the request to design a watch resistant to extreme underwater conditions. The watch they created became known as the "Radiomir".

    Panerai's watches made during the early twentieth century era were comprised of cases designed and manufactured by Rolex SA, with Cortébert, a Swiss manufacturer, supplying the majority of their movements. The most recognizable designs from the firm are the Radiomir and Luminor. To date, vintage models from the first half of the 1900s, such as the reference 3646 and 6152 models, remain the most desirable among collectors.
