Watches of this type were supplied to the Italian Marines. Commissioned by the store, Panerai in Florence, these watches were supplied to many branches of the Italian forces immediately before and during World War Two. The vast majority were fitted with movements by other firms, only the very best group, intended for the Italian Naval divers were fitted with Rolex movements and crowns.
