Panerai Global Expansion

One of my personal favorite watch brands, Panerai, has recently announced a whole slew of new retail front openings.  With the launch of their second US store in New York (to join their existing shop in Los Angeles) Luxist blog reports that “Panerai has been on an expansion binge of late, with recently opened shops in Florence, Portofino, Hong Kong and Shanghai. In addition to the NYC store, openings are planned for Buenos Aires, Madrid, Qatar and Dubai.”

The stores themselves all contain a consistent nautical theme based on Teak wood and steal with diving-inspired design cues featured heavily.

It is good to see that some brands are able to expand and take advantage of falling real estate prices around the world.
