Certified Pre-Owned Panerai Watches

A luxury brand recognized around the world today as a leader in precision watchmaking, Panerai is a favorite among watch aficionados; a group well-known under the name "Paneristis". While primarily targeted at men, Panerai watches have become increasingly popular among women as well, especially with the growing trend of large fine watches for women. Not only are these watches highly sought after, their pre-owned versions are still much desired due to their phenomenal craftsmanship as a result of an illustrious history of watchmaking excellence. 

History of Panerai Watchmaking

Panerai was founded on the Ponte alle Grazie in Florence in 1860 by Giovanni Panerai, as a watchmakers shop and school. Over the next few decades, the brand expanded and began to specialize in high precision instruments such as depth gauges and naval combat sights, becoming the official supplier for the Royal Italian Navy, also known as the Marina Militare.

The shop was relocated to the Piazza San Giovanni site in Florence at the turn of the century. At this time, they adopted the name "Orologeria Svizzera" for the store, which served to underline the relationship between Panerai's watches and its Swiss origins. The Panerai boutique, still bearing this name, stands proudly at this location even today where many luxury brand collectors and Panerai enthusiasts still gather around.

A pioneer of the past, the present, and the future. Panerai's involvement with the Italian Navy led to the development of Radiomir, a self-luminescence used to make the dial and sight of their instruments brighter. This technology eventually led to the creation of a military watch, the Panerai Radiomir watches. Today's Panerai Radiomir still has many of its characteristics, such as the cushion-shaped stainless steel case, tanned, water-resistance leather strap, and 4 large Arabic numerals in the cardinal points. Their partnership with the Royal Italian Navy, alongside Rolex, led to the production of the diving watch, designed for water resistance, meant for extended use in underwater operations. They continued to improve their luminous technology leading to the creation of Luminor, resulting in a new line at Panerai: the Panerai Luminor watch.

From the dial, the bezel, to the strap, the Panerai watch brand is built with intent. Constructed with class, composed of materials like titanium and stainless steel and the defining element of a Panerai timepiece, the crown guard is all pieced to create Panerai's watches. This is a huge reason why watch connoisseurs love pre-owned Panerais.

Why Used Panerai Watches are Still so Desired
