Officine Panerai, the superior Italian watchmaker known for its exquisite leisure timepieces, has built an impeccable reputation based around reliability, flawless manufacturing, and beautiful Italian design. Combined, these elements make for the perfect accessory that will never go out of style or fade in certain seasons. After all, luxury isn’t a trend, it’s a way of life.
While Panerai originally only operated showrooms throughout Europe, over time, it has moved its way into a few storefronts—and even more hearts—here in the U.S. Today, Officine Panerai has dedicated stores on both coasts. New York’s first boutique, located at 545 Madison Ave., opened in 2008, and features a plethora of limited-edition timepieces with a particular focus on those fitted with exclusive Panerai manufactures. But should you not be in the Big Apple, which is also known as the Center of the Universe, rest assured your timepiece can still pay tribute to the thriving metropolis.
In honor of the one-year anniversary of its New York boutique, Panerai has introduced the PAM 318 Brooklyn Bridge special edition timepiece, a uniquely exquisite work of art featuring a 44-millimeter stainless steel caseback engraved with a flawless image of the bridge itself. With the historic polished case, a manual wind, and a 56-hour power reserve, this timepiece is the perfect starter Panerai, priced at $4,400.
