These Panerai watches were designed to be dependable and durable. Used by Italian military divers, the Panerai Luminor had to withstand great pressure and great depths underwater. One of the special aspects of this watch is the metal guard over the crown, which Panerai has trademarked. Because these Panerai watches were used in such extreme conditions, this guard prevented the crown from getting caught on anything and ripping apart from the watch. With the durability and sturdiness of this watch, one would assume that it would be thick and bulky. However, the watches are surprisingly sleek. The case is constructed from titanium, which has the same strength as steel but is significantly lighter. The titanium is resistant to corrosion from salt water and has great resistance to many acids and chemical products.
