End: 21 May 2016
Location: Museo Marino Marini
Address: Piazza San Pancrazio, Florence, Italy
The past, the present and the future of the Officine Panerai will be on show in an exhibition titled "Panerai - Dive into Time" held from 18 to 21 May, in the crypt of the former Basilica of San Pancrazio, home of the Marino Marini Museum in the centre of Florence.
The exhibition will host a previously unseen collection of creations from the fascinating history of the Florentine brand.
Explore the brilliant insights in the field of optics and mechanics and the first instruments made by the Panerai family at the start of the last century, as well as the iconic watches created for the Royal Italian Navy from the 1930s to the 1950s that truly set the tone for the manufacture.
A selection of models created in the period of almost 20 years in which the Richemont Group has owned the Italian watchmaker, during which it built itself as one of the most sought-after luxury sports timepieces.
The journey through Panerai's past ultimately leads to the discovery of the present and to the vision of the future of the brand, which on the occasion of the exhibition will present a world preview of new models, including the highly anticipated Radiomir 1940 Minute Repeater PAM 600.
