Founded in Florence in 1860 as a workshop, shop and school of watch-making for many decades Panerai supplied the Italian Navy specialist diving corps with precision instruments. Originally created to be used deep underwater, Panerai watches are known for their unparalleled legibility and luminosity in the dark. In 1997 the brand was acquired by the Richemont Group and launched on the international market. Today Panerai develops and crafts its movements and watches at its Neuchâtel manufacture, combining Italian design flair and history with Swiss horological expertise.

Here are the most commonly asked watch questions & answers that we've received over the years:
What is the best luxury watch brand to buy as a first watch?
This is entirely a personal preference. We advise doing a little research on each brand to help guide your decision. Personal budget will at times dictate brand or model choice as prices vary, but enjoy the research process and find the watch of your dreams. The luxury watch industry is fascinating and once you buy your first watch, you'll never look back.
Do you resell or exchange watches?
Generally we don't resell or exchange watches and we would only sell new watches from each of the brands we stock, however if you would like to discuss further don't hesitate to contact us.
How often should I get my watch serviced?
We recommend keeping a close eye on the performance of your watch and if you see anything that is not what you'd consider normal performance, get in touch with us and we'd be happy to advise and arrange a service. It is worth noting that in most instances, your watch will need to be checked by us every 1-2 years, this is perfectly routine and depending on the watch brand, falls under the brand warranty.
Typically how long are the waiting lists for new releases?
It very much depends on the brand and how they managed production and availability. Some models are created for specific markets and exclusive occasions however we work very closely with each brand Maison to maximise allocations for the models we know will prove most popular in the Irish market. We recommend getting in touch with our watch team who can advise on how long you'd expect to wait for your preferred model.
