The presence of Panerai workshops in Neuchâtel, an area in Switzerland which is historically steeped in tradition and watchmaking know-how, perpetuates the brand philosophy: to make reliable watches that meet rigorous production criteria by following Swiss technology and Italian design. Panerai grows, in fact, the founding spirit of the Workshops (Opus = work, facere = to do), and even today it is still a laboratory of ideas in which creativity, technical ability and sense of design come together in harmony.
