In 1936, Panerai built a Eilean, a sailing boat which was not only a model in navigation circle, but also enlightened Panerai engineers and designers to launch more nagivation watches with a bunches of professional purposes, like barometer, thermometer, hygrometer, wall clock, etc. Barometer, thermometer, hygrometer and wall clock on the new Panerai navigation watches are made of AISI 316L steel, the material that was applied to build the same instruments on Eilean. AISI 316L is a low-carbon alloy that has amazing performance in resisting corrosion. Four instruments measures 14 cm and displays through a black dial, to make it look simple. These four instruments are necessary tools for sailors. Even though we live in an age where most navigation instruments are replaced by electronic devices, those mechanical instruments are still precious to those old style sailors, and collectors.
