Founded in 1860, Panerai began life as a watch shop in Florence. Later, it diversified into high-precision mechanical engineering and became an official supplier to the Royal Italian Navy. Over the years, its product portfolio grew and, in 1913, the firm began making luminous devices for firing naval guns at night, timing mechanisms, depth gauges and mechanical calculators. The luminous substance employed by the firm was called ‘Radiomir’, a radioactive material which was patented by Guido Panerai in 1915. Thereafter, Panerai would forever be linked with watches incorporating luminous materials.
While Panerai has a long history dating back to the 19th century, Razer is a comparatively young company. Founded in 2005 by Min-Liang Tan and Robert Krakoff, the company splits its operations between California and Singapore. Razer, the ‘leading global lifestyle brand for gamers’ offers everything from laptops, desktops and monitors to keyboards, headsets and speakers. In 2020, the company announced sales in excess of US $1 Billion. Today the firm’s software has ‘over 175 million users’.
