As it known to all, after Romans conquered Egypt and Spain, it has vast sway of the Mediterranean in its control, and named it after Mare Nostrum. Then Roman empire further expanded their territory, and finally reached it prime time and had full control of the Mediterranean, turning it the territory of Roman waters. Rare people know that hundreds of years passed, namely between 1941 and 1942, Italian once gain gained the control of Mare Nostrum, as Italian Navy in the second war was second to none in the ocean.
Without doubt, years passed since Second World War, and Panerai named its watches that were produced for Italian Navy after Mare Nostrum. Guido Panerai adopted the name Mare Nostrum, and named its first chronograph watch, but many relevant data lost. Luckily some of there watches still existed. So Panerai took it as an example, and make an replica of it, aiming at displaying its watch producing skills in that time.
