At the occasion of the last SIHH show in Geneva, the Italian Manufacture Officine Panerai has 

presented its new collection of watches from their “input range”: the Luminor Base Eight Days 

model. 

New bases for Panerai 

The notification of this new range had the effect of a bomb among Panerai watches fans, also known 

as “Paneristi”! 

The legendary Luminor Base model has been the subject of a real renewal. However we can observe 

this renewal inside the box and not directly on the outside design. Five new references have been 

announced like three models with two hands that include a steel case with a black dial, another steel 

case with a white dial and a third one with a titanium case and brown dial. 

The two models with two hands and small seconds consist in steel white dial or brown titanium dial. 

The same element on these 5 new Luminor models is visible, through the inscription «8 days” on 

each dial. 

 

New technical specifications 

Each of these watches has a power reserve of 8 days but differs from its reference model by hosting 

a “factory” manual winding movement called P5000 caliber

The Luminor Base Eight Days watch has a diameter of 35.7 mm and a thickness of 4.5mm with a 

movement including 21 jewels

 Panerai wishes to highlight the robust and solid appearance of these cases. 

To achieve a strong mechanism against all shocks, the artisans of the manufacture made the choice 

to add a variable-inertia balance to the P.5000 caliber, which can be easily adjusted with the small 

screw housed on the wheel, thus leaving the spiral free. 

The long power reserve is an asset and will surely delight all lovers of mechanical watches

Thanks to this new Luminor Base watch, you can now take part in the famous “Paneristi” club.
