Panerai celebrates 70 years of Luminor with Hong Kong exhibition

In 1950, Panerai created the first-ever Luminor as a military watch for the Italian Navy. At the time, Panerai watches were exclusively available to military forces and it wasn’t until 1993 that the Florentine luxury watchmaker started to make them available to the public. It began with its Luminor collection ­– and the rest is history.

To commemorate the 70th anniversary of Luminor, Panerai is presenting its first worldwide historical exhibition dedicated to the iconic collection at their Hong Kong Canton Road boutique.
