_vog7169_wide

Well, now it’s time to offer the personal impression on the novelties of the SIHH 2019 regarding Panerai.

“There is something that you demand not only of your watch, but also of yourself: never stand still.” Walter Lange.

After the Second World War, the company became controlled by the state of East Germany and the name of Lange was practically forgotten.
