Around 1850 it all began with Panerai, when Giovanni Panerai opened his watch shop. It was on the bridge Ponte alle Grazie, on one of the piers of the bridge.
Today there is nothing like it was on that time, an as a result of enlarge the bridge in 1876, the shop was forced to move.
The bridge lies just after another famous Firenze bridge: Ponte Vecchio.
In fact the shop moved severel times, before setting as we now it today, on Piazza San Giovanni, right in front of the Duomo.
I´m ready to make a visit with my family in the Panerai Boutique Firenze. And today I remembered the glasses !
I saw some 2012 news, the Pam 388 and the Pam 392 was just arrived ! Sorry no pics.
I was trying a Pam 368, I´m a 47mm guy, fantastic watch.
The watches were shown with guidance and professionalism of Martina, who helped me and my family with great kindness.
It's a great experience to come in at this historic shop, for the first time. The interior, however, were replaced with the new, all Panerai Boutique has. However, the old French doors retained, providing a good mix with the new and the old.
Thanks to the Firenze crew for the memorable visit.
My souvenir bag.
