Today we are going to talk further about the Panerai replica watch, there's a very special model here. The watch we're going hands on with today, the updated Luminor Base Logo, was one of not one but two major commercial releases from the Swiss watchmaker with Italian roots. The Luminor Base Logo is also the swan song of the replica Panerai's outgoing CEO, Angelo Bonati, who harnessed the powerful design of an Italian military supplier and built up one of the major watchmaking companies of the late 1990s and early 2000s. In my opinion, it's fitting that Bonati ends his tenure at Panerai with a watch that is so emblematic of his early years with the company. I'd wager that the 44mm Luminor case in these photos will be familiar to most anyone even though our readers tend to favor decidedly smaller watches. The 44 mm Luminor design, imposing even on larger wrists, is one of the real classics of watch design. And though the best replica watches Panerai designs actually have a tendency to polarize - you really do either love them or hate them - this is the one that the company built its modern brand upon. The case is a large, thick cushion that frames a round bezel. On the right hand side of the case is a trademarked crown guard that can be opened and closed to move the crown between positions. This, together with the oversized cases and luminous sandwich dials, has come to define Panerai in the popular imagination. With the introduction of the new in-house Caliber P.6000, which hails from the company's Neuchatel manufacture, Panerai replica is endowing its entry level 44mm sports watch, the Luminor Base Logo, with a manufacture movement, bringing an end to the use of the ETA Unitas-based calibers that were once widespread in the collection. The manually wound P.6000 movement is manufactured in house at the fake Panerai. It replaces the ETA Unitas movements that were once in widespread use at Panerai. You can't see this movement because of the closed case back. It's worth noting that although this is a new in-house movement and the back of the Luminor Base Logo 3 Days is closed. As you can see in the photo below, the dodecagon caseback is printed with the words Officine Panerai Firenze 1860, along with the Panerai Logo and an indication of this watch's water resistance to 100 meters. The Luminor Base Logo comes in two dial styles: a black-dialed version with luminous hands and a white version with luminous hands, non-luminous Arabic numerals, and luminous hour markers at the periphery of the dial. It's known to all that one of the major trends, a show devoted to the upper echelons of haute horlogerie, was a return to affordable commercial products and value.
