Tough and tactical, military watches are worn by military personnel, and treasured by those who honor them. With deep roots in Italian watchmaking, Panerai made its name in the 1930s and 40s as they contracted with the Royal Italian Navy, becoming the official supplier of the force’s military-grade timepieces. With Panerei’s robust capabilities in design, engineering, and component fabrication, they quickly became one of the most legendary names in military watches. Learn more about the luxury brand’s beginnings in this History of Panerai, and find out why their pieces are often referred to as “art in motion.” Although military watches catch the attention of collectors and combat soldiers alike, their purpose is practical as most civilian and military professionals in training are required to learn how to use them during indoctrination.
