Panerai Luxury Men's Watches
Giovanni Panerai opened his watchmaker's shop on Ponte alle Grazie in Florence, Italy in 1860, serving not only as a shop and workshop but also as the city's first watchmaking school. In 1936, the first submarine group of the Regia Marina (the Royal Italian Navy) requested to Officine Panerai a wristwatch capable of tackling sea dives and offering visibility in deep and unclear water. Paneari became the official supplier of the Regia Marina and were worn by the frogmen of the Decima Flottiglia MAS in their operations during World War II. Today, Panenai is headquartered in Geneva and manufactures watches in Neuchâtel, Switzerland using movements manufactured in-house.
A selection of Panerai watches are available at our San Antonio, Texas locations and can be requested for viewing at any additional Lee Michaels locations. Contact us to learn more.
