THE QUIN­TES­SEN­TIAL ITAL­IAN WATCH: PAN­ERAI LUMINOR 8 DAYS

Men's Style (Australia) - - Manual -

It’s the Barolo of the watch world— big and as­sertive on first im­pres­sion, with sub­tlety and el­e­gance to spare below the sur­face. Gio­vanni Pan­erai opened his watch­maker’s shop and watch­mak­ing school in 1860 and got his start sup­ply­ing time­pieces to Ital­ian com­man­dos. It wasn’t un­til the ac­tion stars of the 1980s (Stal­lone et al.) started wear­ing them that the rest of the world be­gan rec­og­niz­ing the sig­na­ture bridge de­vice that pro­tects the wind­ing crown. The mod­ern Pan­erai main­tains its wartime util­i­tar­ian charm, but its new in-house move­ments (with an eight-day power re­serve) are any­thing but blunt in­stru­ments. pan­erai.com
