Panerai

 

 

Italian watch manufacturer Panerai is known for its unique watch designs that are traditional and timeless at once. Panerai's diving watches, in particular, are incredibly handsome, recognizable thanks to their large cushion-shaped cases. 

 

Panerai's best-known watches, however, are the Radiomir and the Luminor—both of which have been updated numerous times to take advantage of new technology. The aesthetic has remained mostly the same, retaining that undeniably Panerai mood. 

 

When it was released in 1938, the Radiomir was considered ground-breaking thanks to its use of radium-based powder to illuminate the dials. Meanwhile, the Luminor was made using a luminous tritium-based material. 

 

After it was seen being worn by film stars such as Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Luminor developed a devoted following and remains one of the most coveted Panerai watches today. 

 

To celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Luminor, Panerai collaborated with explorer Mike Horn to release the Submersible Eco Pangea Tourbillon GMT, which comes with the chance to go on an expedition to the Arctic circle with Horn himself.
