In 1916, Panerai filed a patent for a self-luminous material called “Radiomir” for use on its timekeeping instruments. It was a radium-based paste that could be painted onto surfaces, such as watch dials. Then, according to Panerai, the company developed ten prototype dive watches for the combat divers of the Royal Italian Navy in 1936, a watch that would eventually be known as the Panerai Radiomir.
