OFFICINE PANERAI'S "HISTORY AND LEGEND" EXHIBITION
 
Officine Panerai, the Florentine luxury watchmaker, opened the "History and Legend" exhibition in Singapore on August 26th. The exhibition which lasted for almost 2 weeks was located at ION Orchard, one of the most exclusive shopping malls in the city-state. It was a rare opportunity for watch enthusiasts to discover the brand's rich heritage as well as to admire a selection of Panerai's iconic timepieces representing the brand in different eras.
 
Visitors were able to travel through time, discovering the origins of the design of Panerai watches in the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s with a display that unfolds around a full-size prototype (7.5 metres long and 0.53 metre in diameter) of a "slow-speed torpedo", a human torpedo also known as Siluro a Lenta Corsa (S.L.C.). The first S.L.C. was designed in 1938 by two captains of the Genio Navale (Naval Engineer) of the Italian Navy and was created to carry the brave commandos during heroic underwater missions. These commandos wore their diving suits with Panerai watches and instruments specially created for them such as compasses and depth gauges.
 
The exhibition was a unique experience to explore the master Panerai collection, which combines the pureness and authenticity of Italian design with the Swiss know-how of the Panerai manufacture based in Neuch√Ętel, Switzerland. The collection classification takes after the names of the watch cases developed by Panerai since 1936 and includes Radiomir, Radiomir 1940, Luminor 1950, and Luminor. Watches with sophisticated functions of long power reserve, chronographs, GMT, and high complications were being showcased as well. Lastly, the exhibition had a specific area dedicated to the Submersibles range where timepieces from the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) 2015 including the new Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Titanio (PAM00615) were also on display.
