Around 1936, the Royal Italian Navy asked Panerai to create a watch resistant to extreme underwater conditions . The prototype, now known as “Radiomir”, was submitted to the First Submarine Group Command. In 1949 Radiomir was replaced by a new self-luminous substance called “Luminor” which was made with Tritium.
