Like other Panerai watch models, the Historic Luminor Base was also designed to meet the need of Italian Navy in the early 1940s. Officine Panerai made sure the reliability, resistance and readability underwater. The Luminor Base is the simplest model from Panerai watch collections. It offers the essential time-measuring functions, hours and minutes. It is the simplicity which makes Luminor Base the classical, legendary timepiece. After Panerai opening its door to public in 1997, this simple, chic and charming line became the most popular and best-selling one. And even in nowadays, the Luminor Base watches are still pursued crazily by many Panerai enthusiasts.
Everyone knows that the biggest difference between a real Panerai watch and a replica one lies in their different movements. However, for this new Panerai Luminor 1950 replica, even this difference is not exist. So, let’s look at the driven “Heart” of this replica watch first. We know that the Unitas 6497 movement was initially equipped in pocket watches. With the development of watch industry, it was also used in numerous watches. The utilization of Panerai made 6497 movement worldwide famous. The power driving this Luminor Base replica watch is the very original Swiss ETA 6497 manual winding movement. T
he 17 jewels movement features 16.5 lignes and is decorated with Cotes de Geneve on the bridges.

This excellent movement guarantees the same accuracy, precision, reliability and durability as the original one.
