Origin of the legend


Developed for special diving units of the Italian Navy at the beginning of the Second World War, the Radiomir is the cornerstone of Panerai's success. The luminous material Radium, which was used for the first time, enabled reading even during night dives and served as the namesake of this model.



Originally a specialist dealer and watchmaker for Swiss wristwatches in Florence, Panerai began to develop watches for the Italian navy and diving units at the beginning of the 20th century. This watch had the shape and movement of the Rolex Oyster, but a much larger case and dial to improve readability in use. Furthermore, Panerai patented the first luminous material for dials based on the radioactive material radium. Panerai called this luminous material Radiomir.

Inspiration on grey days

Thinking of spring today

In the middle of last week, the time had come. A soft chirping sound made me open the windows, which had been kept closed for most of the past months, and there it was: spring. At least a very first, even delicate hint of it. The first birds singing, temperatures that no longer seemed so wintry. One glance at the clock and it was clear: a change was needed for the new season.
