Panerai Watch Review of Contemporary and Historic Panerai Watches


Panerai Watches are beautiful watches. If you’re consider getting a watch for diving but want to get something a little more elegant than Tag Heuer, Rolex, or Seconda, I’d recommend taking a look at Panerai watch.

Below are my thoughts on the Panerai Watches, including the Panerai Contemporary which we recently purchased.


Panerai has been known for quality watches since the company’s beginnings back in 1860 in Italy: Florence to be exact. In 1900, the company’s reputation gained them the award of being the supplier of the Radiomir wrist watch to the navy of Italy.


The name Panreai Historic Collection should not confuse potential Panerai purchasers. The Panreai Historic collection is actually quite contemporary in it’s style. Including in this collection is the Panreai Luminor Base, Panerai Luminor Marina, and the Radiomir. With hand made mechanical aspects, power enough for 56 hours, and a stainless steel case and bezel.

These watches are rugged, with a water tight resistance rating up to 300 meters. An intersting features about the Historic Panerai watches is how the back of the watch is see 旺角二手錶推薦 through. The see through sapphire crystal enables you to see through to the inner craftsmanship of the watch. Lastly, all the historic watches in this Panerai collection come with your choice of either a leather or an alligator strap. THese are a throwback to when diving watches came in oiled leather straps


The Panerai Contemporary Collection is amazing, with the Luminor Submerisible being the most amazing of the bunch, in my opinion. The Luminor Marina Automatic comes with steel or titanium casing. There is no winding as the movement is automatic, although you do miss the power reserve of the historic watches. The Panerai Contemporary collection power reserve is only 42 hours. The back of the watch does’t have the sapphire see through crystal as the other historic collection does. Like the historic collection, the contemporary collection from Panerai has second hands at the 9 o clock position. But there is also a date window that is round rather than the usual rectangle: a unique feature.

All Panerai’s, no matter which you buy, come with a lockdown winding crown arm, which is athe distinctive trademark of the Panerai watch company. These watches are the finest quality that can withstand just about anything you can throw at them. Quality and craftsmanship is the image of Panerai Watches.
