Harrods will be hosting an exhibition of modern and vintage Panerai timepieces throughout September.
The watches that will be on show at the Panerai boutique in the department store’s Fine Watch Room have been provided entirely by private collectors. The exhibition will launch on Friday 29 August and run until Wednesday 24 September.
The exhibition will include 14 vintage watches and a number of vintage maritime instruments produced between the 1930s and 1990s, some of which are now worth up to £300,000.
A rare Radiomir California Dial 3646 from 1941 will sit next to a 1955 Panerai Luminor with an Angelus movement and a 1956 Egiziano Grosso. More recent models on show will be the 1993 Mare Nostrum, which inspired this year’s highly acclaimed Radiomir 1940 Chronographs; as well as a two Special Editions from 2002 and 2005 and a Limited Edition Paneristi watch from 2010.
The exhibition is open to the public for free, seven days a week during Harrods’ opening hours.
