Journey to Florence in the footsteps of watchmaker Giovanni Panerai

Botticelli, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Galileo, Dante Alighieri, the Medici and Machiavelli among others were born in Florence and wrote their extraordinary destiny there. But what is considered one of the cradles of art and architecture also saw the birth of Giovanni Panerai in 1825. It is in the footsteps of this watchmaker and the secrets that abound in the Tuscan capital that the new experience concocted by Panerai led the holders of its perpetual calendar to produce 33 pieces. A horological complication which is one of the most fascinating, giving the day, the month and the position of the year in the cycle of leap years automatically: the transition from the last day of the month to the 1st of the following month does not require any correction of date by the user, including February 29 of a leap year. A feat. A city tour also for the guests, with an immersion in the heart of the brand’s origins and in the essence of Italian excellence, which was intended to be historical, cultural and gastronomic.
