Panerai Dives Into Time in Florence

By Allison Merchant

June 18, 2016

May 18 through May 21, Officine Panerai invited guests to plunge deep into the ocean of time. The Marino Marini Museum in the center of Florence, Italy showcased the past, present, and future of the watchmaker with a 1,000 square meter exhibition “Panerai – Dive Into Time” in the museum’s underground crypt.

The show displayed the unseen archival collection from Panerai’s history including watches created for the Royal Italian Navy from the 1930s to the 1950s.

Combined with the 20 years of growth under the Richemont Group ownership, the exhibit provided the ultimate time-travelling journey.

Looking to the future, “Panerai – Dive Into Time” unveiled a global preview of a selection of the newest models. Luminor Due, one of the 12 timepieces revealed, was inspired by the classic Luminor of the 1950s, coupled with a sport-like quality. Panerai further dared the depths of its talents with the Radiomir 1940 Minute Repeater Carillon, the company’s most complex watch created to date.

The Florence exhibition also paid homage to Galileo Galilei with the Excellences, planetary timepieces, and demonstrations by a master engraver, the Radiomir Firenze.
