The Italian Military Navy commissiones the family business Panerai
to construct a dive watch
which should stand the toughest charges. The hand made and Rolex
movement-equipped “Panerai Radiomir
”, thanks to the luminous material Radiomir (later called “Luminor”), is well readable also under water and in low light conditions. It is only worn by the Italian combat swimmers force “Gamma” and for a long time is subject to the military secret.
