It all started with the sundial, a stake driven into the ground that cast a shadow according to the position of the sun. This is how ancient people were able to mark the time.
Later, there was the hourglass, first with water and then sand.
One of the oldest Watch Manufacturers in the World is Vacheron Constantin, founded in 1775. But Patek Philippe was responsible for making it possible to wear a watch on the wrist, thanks to the innovation of the winding crown without the aid of the special key. In 1916, the Officine Panerai filed its Radiomir patent in France, a radium-based powder that illuminated the dials of military instruments; the time could finally be read in the dark. In 1926, Rolex had the unique distinction of creating the first waterproof and dustproof wristwatch.
Salvadori has chosen to stock its boutiques with the most prestigious Swiss watchmaking companies, giving customers the largest selection of the most innovative watches available on the market.
The evolution of watches, as a way to make sense of time with a precious accessory, is now one of the most prestigious luxury segments.
