“Form follows function” says the Bauhaus maxim. And so it is with luxury Panerai replica watches, a watch whose military function is predicated on it looking as tough as a hockey puck with a big open face that lets you see the dial easily when doing dangerous things underwater.
Founded in 1836 in Florence, Officine Panerai first designed its Radiomir model for the Royal Italian Navy in 1936 and was then responsible for the Swiss made Panerai fake watches worn by frogmen in the elite Decima Flottiglia MAS unit during the Second World War. It wasn’t until 1993 that the brand started to sell its watches to civilians.
In 2020, high quality replica Panerai watches is the watch of choice for celluloid action men such as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone, who discovered the brand in Florence when building the character for the movie Daylight in 1995.

He even had “Slytech” engraved on the back of Mare Nostrum and Submersible models when giving them as gifts to friends, including Schwarzenegger, who wore his in the film Eraser. Additional appearances in films such as The Expendables, when the Swiss movements Panerai replica watches can be seen on the wrists of Statham, Dolph Lundgren and Jet Li, further cemented the brand’s all-action status.
Stallone and cheap Panerai super clone watches arguably helped to kickstart the trend for huge wristwatches that continues today. The 1:1 replica Panerai Radiomir watches that Johnson wore for the publicity rounds of Jumanji: The Next Level comes in at a whopping 47mm. You’ll need big wrists and an even bigger personality to pull off a watch of such heft and size.
In 1949, Panerai replaced the radium-based material from which the AAA Panerai Radiomir fake watches gets its name with the safer “luminor” substance. This titanium-based material would inspire the Luminor model and the distinctive steel device that protects the top wholesale Panerai replica watches’ crown, making it look even tougher.
What’s astonishing about the Panerai Hollywood action man connection is that the brand claims to have never paid any of the actors for their endorsement of the brand. The love is real.
