17 August, 2015HISTORY AND LEGEND EXHIBITION IN SINGAPORE

The Florentine luxury watchmaker Officine Panerai will inaugurate the “History and Legend” exhibition on 26 August and will be open until 6 September 2015. The exhibition is located at ION Orchard, the exclusive shopping mall where the only Officine Panerai boutique in Singapore is based. It is a rare opportunity for watch enthusiasts to discover the brand’s rich heritage and to admire a selection of Panerai’s iconic timepieces representing the brand in different eras.

Visitors will be able to travel through time, discovering the origins of the design of Panerai watches in the 1940s and 1950s with a display that unfolds around a full-size prototype (7.5 metres long, 0.53 in diameter) of a “slow-speed torpedo”, a human torpedo also known as Siluro a Lenta Corsa (S.L.C.).

The exhibition is also a unique experience to discover the master Panerai collection, which combines the pureness and authenticity of Italian design with the Swiss know-how of the Panerai manufacture based in Neuchâtel, Switzerland. The collection classification takes after the names of the watch cases developed by Panerai starting from 1936, the year of the first Radiomir model, up to today, and includes a selection of Radiomir 1940, Luminor 1950 and Luminor models. Visitors can discover Panerai’s collection through the display at the exhibition, which demonstrates the sophisticated function of Long Power Reserve, High Complications, Chronographs and GMT.
