The Deadliest Watch - Panerai Radiomir 685 & 687

In 1936, dive gauge manufacturer Officine Panerai and watchmaker Rolex joined forces to build a watch at the request of the Italian Royal Navy. Intended for use during covert, night-time dives, Panerai's expertise gave what was essentially a complete watch from Rolex that extra level of functionality: a glowing dial. With numerals that shone clear and legible at a consistent and unfaltering rate, the Panerai watch was unstoppable. There was just one tiny problem with it, however—that glowing dial was deadly.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

This explains why the Italian navy did so well in WWII.
