Panerai was founded way back in 1860 as a Swiss watch shop in Florence, Italy.  In the 1930s that they started to make watches, and at that time they were actually made by Rolex for Panerai and used to supply the Royal Italian Navy.  It wasn't until 1993 that Panerai started selling watches to the general public.  Things ramped up when they became part of the Richemont Group in 1997 and production moved to Switzerland.  Since then they have made some really beautiful watches and their own in-house movements.

 

Geoff's comment: There's something very special about a manual wind mechanical watch.  It engages you with the watch in a way that self-winding watches just don't.  The watch relies on you for life and this Radiomir 8 days Ceramica 45mm winds up to a whopping 8 days of power reserve.  8 days!  As the name of the model implies, the case is made of scratch-resistant ceramic. That is basically zirconium oxide powder — a material widely used not only by watchmakers but also by automotive and aerospace industry – which is baked at an extremely high temperature in order to form a substance that is almost impossible to scratch in normal circumstances.
