From 1884, when it first came into being as a jewelry shop in Rome, Bvlgari has come to represent Italian excellence in the world of fine jewelry and timepieces. Paying homage to its Greek and Roman roots, Bvlgari draws upon this ancient splendor and re-imagines it into modern masterpieces. With endless creativity and innovation, Bvlgari continues to uphold its legacy of being a pioneer, producing exquisite classic and yet contemporary creations.
Founded in Florence in 1860 as a workshop, shop, and school of watchmaking for many decades Panerai supplied the Italian navy specialist diving corps with precision instruments. Originally created to be used deep underwater, Panerai watches are known for their unparalleled legibility and luminosity in the dark. In 1997 the brand was acquired by the Richemont group and launched on the international market. Today Panerai develops and crafts its movements and watches at its Neuchâtel manufacture, combining Italian design flair and history with swiss horological expertise.
