The gent's Officine Panerai watch collection is ever-growing here at Berry’s. Each timepiece is manufactured from start to finish in Panerai’s watchmaking facilities in Neuchatel, a city holding some of the oldest Horological traditions in Switzerland. By combining time honoured manufacturing methods with innovation, these unique Officine Panerai watches for men are created. These timepieces appeal to gentlemen because of their strong aesthetics and functional identity – many of which offer features like double chronographs, tachymeter scales, diver’s bezels and flyback functions. Part of the enjoyment in finding the perfect gent's wristwatch is the quest to search for high-performance along with innovative materials, and that’s certainly where Officine Panerai watches are favoured over many others. The company’s testing procedures at their Neuchatel site ensure that every masterpiece created is capable of performing at the same level of accuracy as the next. Each movement has been designed with precision under the keen eye of an expert, and the many components which make up these innovative engines, have been hand assembled to keep the Panerai tradition alive in each watch. Whether you consider yourself the sporty gent, the professional businessman, the sports player or the socialite, a Panerai watch has been created just for you.
Officine Panerai Luminor watches are the perfect companion for the sophisticated gentleman. Not only do they ooze military appeal but they also look incredibly modern on the wrist, thanks to their broad dimensions and an innovative use of materials like ceramic and their patented Carbotech material. Most gent’s watches from this collection however, are crafted from polished 316L stainless steel. It provides a constant environment free from moisture, heat and dust for the internal workings of the timepiece to operate. Many Luminor watches are equipped with an impressive 8 day power reserve, like the Officine Panerai Luminor Marina 8 Days Oro Rossi watch. The design features an eye catching red gold case and bezel bordering a sumptuous brown dial. The colour palette of the watch evokes a luxurious feel on the wrist, enhanced all the more by a dark brown leather strap with matching red gold buckle. The 8 day power reserve is made possible by a refined mechanical movement which sits in the middle. The hand wound movement can be recharged with energy by accessing the red gold crown by lifting the lever of the crown-protecting bridge before winding.
Other gent’s Panerai watches like those from the Luminor Due collection are even larger making these instruments better suited to the broader wrist. 45mm cases house automatic movements with three day power reserves, along with dials with a small seconds sub scale located at 9 o’clock. Keeping their sleek look, the watches are offered on various coloured leather straps, allowing them to be worn with smart and professional attire. Designs like the Officine Panerai Luminor Due 3 Days Automatic Acciaio watch with anthracite dial, is equipped with luminous coated Arabic and stick batons around the hour track, as well as a set of elegant sword shaped hands mounted centrally on the dial. With a date window located at 3 o'clock, the gent can keep track of all those important dates throughout the year, whilst a stylish brown calfskin strap looks fashionable when combined with any choice in attire.
