With that said, the brand is about artistically changing established designs and experimenting with novel executions more so than trying to offer something totally original. Large, avant-garde watches are popular in Singapore and Panerai has a particularly healthy fan base there.
I have yet to experience the Singapore watch market myself, but I find some of the intense diversity in buying tastes there interesting. MoVas offers both sapphire crystal and Plexiglas crystal options, which is really about offering the unique warmth a Plexiglas crystal offers — but of course, not all buyers want to deal with the fact that it scratches a lot compared to sapphire.
The case is also water resistant to meters — without a screw-down crown or screw-down pushers — and feels reasonably well-made even if the European and Japanese brands in many ways have MoVas beat. Hands are all the right length and legibility is very good.
Lume is pretty good, but I think that this is something which could have been even better given the style of the dial.
The interesting cases are familiar at first glance, but also original.

Parts are not cleaned and finished properly, and bare brass parts like the automatic rotor show signs of oxidation and aging. You can copy the parts, for sure, but at the end of the day, the combination of cleanliness, finishing, material quality, and testing in Switzerland and the better Japanese stuff easily trumps the Chinese stuff which only wins when it comes to price.
