Panerai is considered the cult brand from Italy. By combining Italian art with Swiss design, these iconic timepieces have a distinct look that is famous worldwide. They appeal not only to the modern gent, but the lady too. Panerai’s unisex watch collection strikes the perfect balance between an elegant dress watch and a timepiece that reveals the highest level of technical skill and Swiss precision behind its design. It is this unique blend that makes an Officine Panerai watch so popular today. Watch lovers want a timepiece that can be appreciated for its technical beauty, but they also want a watch that tells a story of heritage and prestige. Many of Panerai’s original designs were developed for the Italian Navy during the 30’s and 40’s. With huge military appeal, watches from the Luminor and Radiomir collections have kept a number of distinct designs that have led to their popularity over the last 80 years.
Here at Berry’s, as an official stockist of Officine Panerai watches, we have sourced some of the company’s finest innovations. From the likes of the classic 38mm Luminor Due watches with their beautifully slim cases, to striking leather straps finished in vibrant colours - there is, as many will agree, a design out there for every personality and every requirement. Amongst our collection of unisex Panerai watches, we offer cases crafted from delicate 18ct rose gold to date apertures and striking luminous coated three handed designs that create a huge impact once combined with a smart office suit or such like. It is however, more to do with the iconic cushion-shaped case and the broad horn-shaped lugs of many Panerai watches, which create the illusion of a larger dial that can be enjoyed by the lady and the gent alike. The physique of each Officine Panerai watch is capable of creating huge wrist presence, even when the case is not all that large in physical size. Designs like the Officine Panerai Luminor Due 3 Day watch in rose gold for example, demonstrates how the chiselled look of the case creates a dramatic and somewhat masculine demeanour, despite its unimposing diameter of just 38mm across the wrist.
The Officine Panerai Luminor Due 38mm watch with a clean white dial and striking blue strap is a watch that can be enjoyed by both the stylish male and female. The case has been crafted from lustrous 18ct rose gold, with central hands and circular dot indexes which sit above a set of Arabic numerals crafted in the same finish. A clear sapphire crystal glass is used throughout Panerai’s collection of watches, which rids any undesirable glare from affecting the wearer’s view into the dial, as well as protecting the surface from scratching, sun damage and moisture. Panerai Luminor watches have an undeniable sporty appeal, which makes perfect sense when you consider that the range was originally intended for the Italian Navy. These timepieces were capable of strapping tightly to the wrist and assisting with diving missions as well as facing extreme conditions out at sea, so these timepieces are much enjoyed on the wrist whilst partaking in swimming or light water sports.
