PANERAI CELEBRATES 70 YEARS OF LUMINOR WITH A HISTORICAL EXHIBITION AT THE HONG KONG CANTON ROAD FLAGSHIP BOUTIQUE
In celebration of the 70th anniversary of the Panerai iconic Luminor collection, the Florentine luxury watchmaker will showcase the Luminor collection timepieces at its first worldwide historical exhibition dedicated to 70 years of Luminor at the Hong Kong Canton Road flagship boutique from October 22nd – November 4th.
Presenting 70 exclusive timepieces from the Panerai Museum and our local private collectors, this exhibition will also encompasses existing timepieces of the Luminor collection in order to highlight the evolution of Luminor throughout the years.
Panerai takes pride in the strong bond between the brand and its clientele. In this historical exhibition, Panerai will reveal a wide range of pieces from the private collections of Panerai VIPs.
The Luminor 1950 – 47 mm (PAM00127), combined with a protecting crown device, cushion-shaped case and domed sapphire crystal, has a distinctive form of sandwich dial that creates an aura of vintage Italian style. Another notable timepiece showcased at the exhibition is the one and only one special edition Luminor 1950 8 Days GMT – 44 mm (PAM00290) made by Panerai for Sotheby’s auction in 2006.
To further highlight the evolution of Luminor and heritage with Paneristi, Panerai will present the designed limited edition Luminor Marina PVD – 44 mm (PAM00195) with ‘OP’ logo, which symbolizes Panerai’s long standing history with the Italian Navy.
To give prominence to the evolving craftsmanship over the years, Panerai will feature the Luminor skeletonised tourbillon wristwatch, Lo Scienziato – Luminor 1950 Tourbillon GMT Ceramica – 48 mm (PAM00528).
Unlike traditional tourbillons, it is characterized by the Panerai patented Tourbillon that rotates perpendicularly to the axis of the balance, completing two rotations in a minute instead of one. Another timepiece that will be displayed at the exhibition is the Luminor Lab-Id Carbotech™ – 49 mm (PAM00700).
This innovative watch has a semi-skeletonised movement completely without additional lubrication – except for the anti-shock device - and with only four jewels, which reinforces the ability of Panerai’s Laboratorio di Idee to invent.
In this special exhibition, Panerai will also include its latest novelties: the manual winding Luminor Base Logo – 44 mm (PAM01086) and Luminor Logo – 44 mm (PAM01084). These two brand-new timepieces serve as an inheritance observed through widely recognized graphic codes of Panerai, and the sharp, singular lines were inspired by the first civilian models of the 1990s.
With 70 historical and existing timepieces showcased at a single location, the exhibition will provide an opportunity to embark on an immersive journey to explore the 70-year evolution of Luminor.
