WHO THEY ARE Gio­vanni Pan­erai founded the first watch­maker’s shop in Florence, Italy, in 1860. The brand be­came fa­mous when Hol­ly­wood ac­tion star Sylvester Stal­lone wore a Pan­erai Lu­mi­nor he had bought in Rome in his 1996 film, Day­light. Stal­lone also gave the watches as gifts to friends. CLAIM TO FAME Well-known for its div­ing watches, ini­tially cre­ated for the Royal Ital­ian Navy. The Ra­diomir (1938) fea­tures a luminous dial to aid vi­sion while un­der­wa­ter. The 1940s Lu­mi­nor had a lock­ing de­vice that made the watch wa­ter-re­sis­tant up to 200m – a re­mark­able achieve­ment at the time. Pan­erai is also known for start­ing the big-watch trend. WHAT’S HOT The new Sub­mersible col­lec­tion. They com­prise the Lu­mi­nor Sub­mersible 1950 2500m 3 Days Au­to­matic Ti­tanio, which is wa­ter-re­sis­tant to 2,500m; the Lu­mi­nor Sub­mersible 1950 3 Days Au­to­matic Ceram­ica, which flaunts a matte ce­ramic case; and the Lu­mi­nor Sub­mersible 1950 3 Days Power Re­serve Au­to­matic Bronzo, clad in highly cov­eted bronze.
